This Woodland Easter Tablescape was created in partnership with Oriental Trading.

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. Every year we always have a family brunch to celebrate. Living in Pittsburgh, Easter is also around the time of year when signs of spring start to emerge. Grasses turn green again, branches start budding and flowers start to bloom. It’s always so refreshing to see the season start to change after our snowy winters. Because of this I thought it would be fun to create a nature inspired Woodland Easter Tablescape. I really gravitated to lots of earth tones and different textures in this tablescape— mosses, wood elements and greenery. To contrast the earthy color palette I also added gold, violet and teal accents. I love the unique tactile aesthetic of this Easter table and I hope you do too!
The first thing I did to really give my dining room a woodsy, earthy vibe was to drape garlands from my chandelier. This was so simple to do and I was amazed at how it immediately transformed the room. I first hung the Boxwood Garland in sweeping scallops all around the chandelier, tying it in place with clear fishing line. Then, I cut I the Faux Dogwood Garland into 8 pieces and individually tied each section to the chandelier, trying to space them as evenly as possible. Some pieces of the Faux Dogwood Garland hung higher or lower than others and I loved how this created an organic, natural look.
I wanted this Woodland Easter tablescape to have a bit more of a dynamic look. So I decided to first place the Moss Table Runner at a diagonal in the center of my table. Then, I arranged the Pansy Garland in a few loose curves directly overtop of the moss. Next, I placed the Large Round Wood Slice Centerpiece in the very middle of the table. I then added the Wood Medium Round Centerpiece to the left of the large wood slice.
I decided that the adorable Lily Long Ears bunny would be great as the main focal center of the table. Her height was perfect—tall enough to really stand out while not causing any obstruction to guest’s sight lines.
Next it was time to add all of the small woodland inspired details to the table. I wanted the table to feel very full and lush, almost like the mossy ground of a garden or forest. I first layered Pampas Grass over a portion of the medium wood slice. I love the soft texture that the Pampas Grass added to the table. Then, I placed a DIY Ceramic Easter Bunny that I spray painted gold on top of the grass and wood slice. Next, I added a Green Grass Rabbit and some Faux Moss Plastic Easter Eggs as well as the DIY Woodland Bird Nests that I created for this tablescape. Inside each nest, as well as other places on the table, I added the DIY Scrapbook Paper and Twine Wrapped Eggs that I made. Both the nests and eggs really enhanced the table. The nests were so tactile, made with burlap, vines and Mini Branch Wreaths. The eggs added a variety of color and a bit more refinement to the table. Some of the eggs were twine wrapped and others were made with Mod Podge and scrapbook paper and raffia.
I really loved the contrast on our Woodland Easter Tablescape that was created by combining the natural woodland table décor elements and earthy color palette with gold with pops of teal and violet. Each place setting had a Premium Gold Happy Easter Plastic Dinner Plate layered on top of a Gold Chargers with a Teal Lagoon Dinner Napkin and Talking Tables Party Porcelain Premium Gold Plastic Cutlery Sets. To continue the gold and teal accents throughout the table I also incorporated Gold-Flecked Mercury Glass Votive Candle Holders and Bright Teal Cylinder Vases.
Even though this is a bit more of a formal table I really wanted to add a small whimsical touch to each place setting. To do this, I created DIY Carrot Pot Favors made out of Mini Terra Cotta pots and Crayola® Air-Dry Clay. These little carrots were filled with small foil wrapped chocolate Easter egg candy. I think these make a perfect little treat for guests to take home with them after the Easter festivities.
I also incorporated a few other nature inspired Easter décor elements throughout the dining room. The bar cart worked really well to hold our Beverage Dispenser and extra Teal Patterned Plastic Champagne Flutes. Small Unfinished Wood Slices made for fun coasters under the flutes too. In addition extra cookies were served on Clear Cupcake Stands and Premium Happy Easter Gold Plastic Dessert Plates. The Vintage Easter Wreath with burlap bow is beautiful and made for a perfect backdrop as it leaned in the corner of the room. A few other items that really enhanced the room were the Copper Lanterns and the Vintage Easter Topiary Tree.
