Saffron Marigold - Updated: April 1, 2020

Celebrating Easter brunch (or Easter dinner) around a beautiful table makes the whole holiday just that much more festive. And with lively spring colors and inspired patterns, it’s a joy to create an Easter table setting. Our table linens make for the perfect addition to your Easter tablescape, and  we’ll guide you through everything you’ll need to create one!

What is a tablescape?

A tablescape is more than just setting the table with plates, cups, and cutlery. Instead, it’s a way of dressing your table from head to toe to create a visually appealing setting for dining.

Start with an Easter tablecloth in spring colors

The first step in creating a beautiful tablescape is to start with a table linen. Acting as a beautiful foundation, a tablecloth or table runner in Easter colors will set the scene for your tablescape. From floral table runners to white table linens and tablecloths for spring, Saffron Marigold offers plenty of Easter tablecloth ideas.

Pretty in Purple

With blue violets and crocuses cropping up at every turn, purple Easter decorations are a natural choice. Dusty lilac is an especially lovely purple tablecloth to use for an Easter brunch. Pair with yellow or blue accents for a springy feel.

Fresh White

Crisp and refined, a white tablecloth is always an elegant, sophisticated choice for a classic Easter brunch. Bring in the vivid colors of spring through your other Easter table decor (like your centerpiece), or elevate the look by composing a monochromatic palette. Think white napkins, white china, glimmering silver, and a quintessential bunch of Easter lilies.

Spring Green

We wait all winter long for the first touches of green. For a spring celebration (such as an Easter brunch), ground your tablescape with a green tablecloth or a green table runner. The print featured below includes touches of navy blue accented with shimmering gold.

Classic Blue and White

A classic blue and white tablecloth will carry you into a number of spring parties, from a Mother’s Day brunch to a spring luncheon all the way to Easter dinner. If you prefer, you can also try a blue and white table runner over a solid white tablecloth for formal dining, and let it run across a bare wooden table for a special breakfast. The possibilities are endless!

Natural Florals

After the dreary grey winter landscape, the sight of spring’s first blooms are cause for a celebration of their own! If you delight in planting a garden and snipping your own flowers for added beauty in your home, then you’ll want to use a floral tablecloth for your Easter tablescape. It’s the natural choice!

4 ways to build your Easter tablescape

Once you’ve narrowed down your table linens, you can really start to picture how you’ll want do dress the Easter brunch table. Maybe you’ll want the table linens to be the star of the show. Perhaps you’ll use them to create a cohesive theme for the celebration. From formal to casually refined, you’ll enjoy creating an Easter tablescape this year with Saffron Marigold linens adorning your table.

Decide on a theme

Maybe tulips speak to you, or perhaps you’re crazy about Easter eggs. From flowers to bunnies, choose a spring or Easter element to serve as your theme. Just think spring: light colors, floral motifs, and other details that evoke the changing season are a great place to start.

Less Candles

Easter Egg Candles

Gilded polka dots deliver whimsy and charm to traditional Easter eggs–you might want to keep these candles unlit!


Soapstone Birdies

Made from locally-mined soapstone, these little lovebirds were made from entirely by the hands of Kenyan artisans.

Create a centerpiece

No Easter tablescape is complete without a knockout centerpiece! A great centerpiece features layers of texture, materials, and height to provide a feast for the eyes. Use candlesticks, topiaries, garlands, greenery, and other embellishments from your chosen theme for a cohesive presentation. And don’t forget about the florals!

Lillian Vernon

Easter Egg Wreath

A wreath isn’t just for hanging: set this one on the center of your table. Fill a vase with similar florals, or stand candlesticks in the center. Either way, this wreath will anchor your Easter centerpiece beautifully.

Olive & Cocoa

Abigail Garden

For a low Easter centerpiece, consider one filled with a variety of blossoms, such as this one that features seven splendid tiered rows of lush blooms.

Add table settings

For your Easter brunch, set a proper table setting complete with china, silverware, glassware, and placemat for each guest. Now, this can be as casual or as sophisticated as you prefer. Whether or not you break out your fine china is up to you, but don’t forget to use cloth napkins–they elevate every meal!

World Market

Fluted Glass Egg Cups

Egg cups are meant to hold and serve eggs, but you certainly don’t have to use them that way! For Easter brunch, consider filling them with a kiwi for a fun, unexpected–and healthy!–treat.

The Little Market

Woven Napkin Rings

Made in Rwanda by weavers who use locally sourced grasses, these rings will add a special touch to the table. They look especially gorgeous paired with Ivy Lace, Royal Mansour, or Victorian Trellis!

Add finishing touches to your Easter tablescape

Small touches like placecards, favors, a printed menu, or chair decorations will elevate the Easter brunch table setting and wow your guests.


Panoramic Peter Rabbit

A darling Victorian tradition, panoramic sugar eggs are hard to find these days. We love this one that has none other than Peter Rabbit himself in the sugary garden!

Li-Lac Chocolates

Chocolate Place Setter Bunny

If you’re a traditionalist, then you know that no Easter table setting is complete with a chocolate bunny! These are handmade in Brooklyn (and available in three delicious flavors).
