7 Bright Colour Schemes for Creating the Perfect Easter Table
Easter marks the beginning of spring and is the perfect opportunity to insert fresh, bright and happy spring colours into your décor. The first place to start is with your Easter table setting. Setting an inviting Easter table with the colours of spring is easy! The trick is to avoid using a rainbow of colours, which can look busy and unfocused. Instead, limit your colour choice to one prominent accent colour with other colours used either as a backdrop or in subtle little details. And finally, pair your accent colour with white for a crisp contrast. Using white will help brighten up your table and allow your accent colour to pop. Read on for 7 colour schemes that are sure to make a welcoming Easter table.
Is there a colour more cheery than yellow? Yellow just works so well for Easter décor (it is, after all, the colour of baby chicks). In this tablescape, a blue-and-white polka-dot tablecloth is used as the backdrop. Crisp white napkins and charger plates allow the bright yellow to really pop. Continue using yellow items and accessories throughout the tablescape for continuity, like the dinner plate, napkin ring, seating card trim, gift box and fresh daffodils used here.
A yellow teacup filled with daffodils, yellow pansies and pussy willow creates lovely individual arrangements that can be placed at each place setting.
Make a napkin cone at each place setting and fill it with yellow flowers and goodies for your guests.
Potted yellow daffodils offer a bright pop against this muted backdrop.
Yellow chick-shaped ceramic egg cups, a yellow Easter egg-shaped candle lantern and one yellow dish on a stack of white dishes, offer subtle little pops of yellow for this Easter brunch table. And let's not forget the yellow mimosas, which do more than just add to the décor ;)
This outdoor Easter table is just as bright and cheery as the sunny day itself!
Pink: soft and feminine, this colour has always been an Easter favourite. In this tablescape, and overflowing bouquet of pink tulips offer a bright punch of colour against the white backdrop. Pink-painted Easter eggs, pink napkins and individual bottles of pink lemonade continue the colour scheme throughout.
Bright pink petal shaped dishware is perfect for spring!
Blush coloured tulips and rose-flavoured water provide subtle hints of pink while the glass bunny reminds us of the Easter season.
A soft green backdrop allows the pink ranunculus flowers, pink dish and pink-wrapped chocolate bunny to pop. Individual mini bird cages filled with Easter treats double as name card holders at each place setting.
This pretty pink and white tablescape is the perfect example of how to layer china, flatware and glassware of different textures and materials to create a collected look. The combination of antique silver charger plates and silverware, ornate white china, contemporary clean-lined pink china and mugs, clear glass bowls and candle sticks, pink tea pots, white water jugs doubling as flower vases, and pink-tinted wine glasses creates a homey and inviting Easter table.
With the grass coming back to life, little buds starting to form on the trees, and tiny plant sprouts popping their heads out of the ground, no colour is more reminiscent of spring than green. This Easter table celebrates green with lime coloured charger plates, and a potted plant. The green cabbage leaf continues the colour scheme while acting as a bed for a hard-boiled egg served in cute little nests made of carrot shavings.
This Easter table will work nicely in a dining room featuring traditional décor. Giant green hydrangea-petal Easter bunnies, green topiary balls and green stemware brighten up the classic earthy-toned tablescape.
This green and white Easter table is perfect for a casual kitchen or sun-filled porch, as pictured here. Incorporate some natural elements into your table setting, like the moss table runner and potted plants that speak to the spring season.
Use crisp whites and bright greens for a modern monochromatic look. For this style, keep the table décor minimal, like the simple sleek grouping of glass vases holding a few single flowers and branches.
Soft blue, the colour of robins' eggs, is another springtime colour that works beautifully on an Easter table.
Light turquoise accents offer cheerful pops of colour on this lovely spring table.
Light blue tinted-glass provides a fresh and airy feel.
This delicate table setting offers soft hints of robins' egg blue and sweet individual Easter baskets for your guests.
Try blue, on blue, or blue for a more dramatic look.
A blue linen napkin tied with a striped blue and white bow is a simple and pretty way of adding colour to your table scape. I love the individual tulip at each place setting!
Shades of soft purple, lilac and lavender are beautiful signs of spring. A cascading arrangement of purple flowers is the perfect addition of colour to this all white Easter table.
Soft and feminine, this Easter table features bunches of lilac branches and painted Easter eggs in various shades of soft purple and lilac. Pretty feathers and ruffled linens complete this lovely look.
A darker shad of purple adds elegance.
Jugs and ramekins filled with overflowing lilac flowers and purple flower-shaped dishes pair nicely with the soft green used here.
Orange also works well for an Easter table; it is after all, the colour of carrots, the Easter Bunny's favourite treat. Here, orange flowers are beautiful in this rustic table runner paired with slices of wood logs and birds' nests. An orange carrot with stems in-tact on each place setting and completes this garden-inspired look.
Layer soft oranges and peachy shades for a pretty Easter table, like the one shown here.
Bright orange tulips and a bright orange salad bowl offers a warm contrast to the cool blue and green tones in this table.
Pretty orange tulips in a copper mercury glass vase and metallic copper Easter eggs make for a sophisticated Easter centerpiece.

Sometimes the lack of colour can have the most striking impact. The layering of white-on-white can create a beautiful Easter table. White is so versatile: it can be dramatic or elegant, modern or traditional, like the beautiful traditional place setting shown here.
White tulips in jugs, white ceramic Easter bunnies, white china, topped with a white egg, all make for a pretty white Easter table.
This white-on-white Easter table is soft and delicate. Pretty pots of tiny white flowers and mini white chocolate eggs at each place setting, paired with white china and crisp white linens, are simple and elegant details which make for an inviting Easter table.
