Easter Table Ideas & Inspiration Part 1

Spring is in the air….Don’t you just love adding fresh, pretty touches to your home after a long dreary winter? If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know how much I love to share tablescape inspiration. Along with Thanksgiving and Christmas, Easter is one of those holidays where family’s tend to gather for a special meal. So, to give you a variety of inspiration, I’m sharing a two-part post series with several ideas for any style whether you are looking for something casual or formal….


Black & White Garden Casual Table

This first table is more casual and clean lined. Using black and white for Easter isn’t usually a traditional look, but I love how pretty spring greenery looks with the neutral palette of black and white. The check patterns give the look a more casual feel too.
For the centerpiece, I used a neutral runner down the center with some texture to it. Then I stacked some fun fabric colored books from Elements by. I love using the patterns and mix of colors to add height and unexpected look to the table. Then, I placed some neutral bunnies on the books and surrounded the whole arrangement with some pretty greenery. I love this particular style because it is wired, so you can maneuver the pieces in place how you want them. Then I added a few wooden eggs to give the easter feel and tie into the place settings.
For the place settings, I started with a black charger, then placed a square creme colored melamine plate on top. What makes this different is the square plate on the round charger, it’s just an unexpected match. I then layered this sweet linen napkin with the check bunny applique and placed the salad plate on top. To finish it off, I added this sweet little mini boxwood wreath and nestled a wooden egg inside.
This is perfect for a casual setting and can even be used outside with the melamine dishes. If you wanted to add more color, you could switch out the wooden eggs for a colored version.

Crisp White Easter Traditional Table

The next table is a little more of a traditional Easter look. By keeping things still a bit neutral and adding crisp white, spring greens and pretty tulips tucked in pretty white pitchers are just the right touch. I also placed a sweet little white bunny next to the birdcage.
For the centerpiece, I stayed with the same neutral runner and then added a sweet birdcage with some greenery, a nest and little eggs tucked inside. Just a few pretty white pitchers or vases with simple tulips (faux or real) give the festive touch to the whole look.
I love the simplicity and how the crisp white and spring green look so fresh.
the place settings, I started with a ruffled burlap place mat and placed a scalloped white and gold vintage looking charger and my everyday dinner plate. If you wanted it a bit more formal, you could use a fine china plate. Next, I laid a neutral linen napkin and a bird nest with a little white egg & one single(faux) tulip.

Neutral & Blues Bunny Table

This third table is another more traditional table with neutrals and a pop of fresh soft blue. The idea for this table came from the bunny accent plate. there are so many fun bunny themed plates available and they are the perfect set up to give your table the backdrop and color ideas.
The centerpiece started with the same basic table runner. In the center, I placed a cake plate with a bunny to tie in with the bunnies on the salad plate. Then i lined up a variety of wooden candle sticks to give height and texture to the look. To bring in the color, I clustered a variety of soft blue and creme faux hydrangea around the candle sticks to coordinate with the salad plates as well.
On this place setting, I worked with several layers to give lots of texture and character. I started with a ruffled burlap place mat and then a burlap charger on top. Next I used our every day dinner plates. To create a more formal look, you could use a nicer china. The star of the whole look is the pretty, colorful salad plate. You could use any Eater scene plate with color and then take the colors from that plate to finish the look. Any flowers you like and colors that are your favorite.
The other fun touch is the blue linen napkin folded like little bunny ears and then a wooden egg tucked in. Fold your napkin into a square and then fold one corner to meet the other to form a triangle. Then tightly roll up from the tip of the triangle. Grab the two ends together and tie leaving some space to create the “ears”. Then, place your egg into the opening.

    Honey, you are one talented lady! Love all your ideas. Where do you stash all your goodies when not in use? I have a walk in closet with floor to ceiling shelving and lots of storage in my kitchen, but something tells me you need more…lol!!

    • txbittons@verizon.net says:

      Hi Lindsay,
      Ha, surprisingly I don’t have a ton of storage but I can fit most of it in my china hutch and I also have a buffet that holds all my chargers. The seasonal items are packed away with the seasons boxes. The general items such as wreaths and such are stored in a craft closet. Thanks for your kind feedback I really appreciate it. I’m so glad you are here and I hope you’ll come back often !

  2. Pattie says:

    I’m not sure how I discovered your blog, but I am so glad that I did! Everything here is so lovely. I have spent the past hour and a half reading through many of your posts. I love all of your Easter ideas, and will be employing some of them in my table this year. Having recently suffered a loss, I won’t be celebrating, but I will be enjoying a pretty table all to myself.

  3. Dawn says:

    I want you white plates and chargers. Can you tell me about them ?

  4. Mszig says:

    They are all so pretty. I’d love to know where you purchased some of the items.

    • txbittons@verizon.net says:


      I usually try to give sources to some products on the posts if I have them and if they are still available. Which items are you interested in?


  5. Vicki Little says:

    Please, can you tell me where you found the adorable bunny salad plates? Your table settings are awesome!


    • txbittons@verizon.net says:

      Hi Vicki,

      The colorful plates were from Pottery Barn and the black and white were from Pier 1 Imports last spring. I believe Pier 1 has a few styles very similar this year. Sorry I don’t have a better source since they are a little older.

      APpreciate your feedback and thanks for following along.

      Stay Healthy,

      Deborah xoxo

  6. Diane says:

    Where did you get the wired greenery shown with the bunnies?

    • txbittons@verizon.net says:

      Hi Diane,

      I got the greenery from a store called Paul Michael company. they do have a website. I don’t have a link to it sorry. It might not be available anymore.

      Thanks for following along…
      Stay Well


  7. Tammy Thompson says:

    Hi Deborah,
    You have such a beautiful, classic style. Thank you for sharing your talent. Can you please tell me where to get the black candle holders with clear fluted glass?

    • txbittons@verizon.net says:

      Hi Tammy,
      That is so kind of you to say thank you. Unfortunately those candle holders I’ve had for several years. They were from Pottery Barn but they no longer carry them. I keep searching for similar items and if I find them I always try to link them to the post.
      Thanks for following along too,


  8. Geweldig artikel over LGBT (Great article about LGBT)I just received notice that my subscription price has gone up at the same time as the Post has decided to eliminate one of the main reasons why I have subscribed, the Sunday Magazine. It is not a good business model to charge more and give less. I have always enjoyed the Magazine for its insightful, interesting, and informative long-form articles. I understand that this type of content does not easily fit into electronic media, but that doesn’t mean it is no longer needed, read, and appreciated. Print is not dead, it is the print media itself that is killing it with decisions like this.i feel like your posts are always what i need to hear. i don’t really do heroes and role models, but if i had to choose, i’d want to be like you 🙂Hi sir I am interested this job plz give me a chance for this receptionist job sir thank you

    Whether or not you believe in God, read this message!!!

    Throughout time, we can see how we have been strategically conditioned coming to this point where we are on the verge of a cashless society. Did you know that Jesus foretold of this event almost 2,000 years ago?

    In the last book of the Bible, Revelation 13:16-18, it states,

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles–Revelation 19:20) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last generation, this could only be speaking of a cashless society. Why? Revelation 13:17 tells us that we cannot buy or sell unless we receive the mark of the beast. If physical money was still in use, we could buy or sell with one another without receiving the mark. This would contradict scripture that states we need the mark to buy or sell!

    These verses could not be referring to something purely spiritual as scripture references two physical locations (our right hand or forehead) stating the mark will be on one “OR” the other. If this mark was purely spiritual, it would indicate both places, or one–not one OR the other!

    This is where it comes together. It is shocking how accurate the Bible is concerning the implantable RFID microchip. This is information from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this RFID chip:

    “Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about this one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).

    Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible (Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.

    Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand (the two places the Bible says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, criminal record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.

    Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16–18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.” Carl believes this is referring to a hypodermic needle when they poke into the skin to inject the microchip.”

    Mr. Sanders asked a doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor replied by saying a terrible sore would appear in that location. This is what the book of Revelation says:

    “And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).

    You can read more about it here–and to also understand the mystery behind the number 666: https://2RUTH.ORG

    The third angel’s warning in Revelation 14:9-11 states,

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.'”

    Great hope is in our midst, and is coming in a mighty way–the greatest revival for Jesus in the history of the world where we will see the most souls come to Him of all tribes, tongues, nations, and peoples (Rev. 7:9-10); for we have this promise in God’s Word in the midst of these dark times:

    “Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years (not literal–rather a spiritual label for time spent in eternity); and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while (when the Antichrist and false prophet will rise up and God will test the world).” (Revelation 20:1-3)

    “The coming of the lawless one (the Antichrist) is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)”

    Who is Barack Obama, and why is he still in the public scene?

    So what about his name? The meaning of someone’s name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface.

    Jesus states in Luke 10:18, “…I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.”

    The Hebrew Strongs word (H1299) for “lightning”: “bârâq” (baw-rawk)

    In Isaiah chapter 14, verse 14, we read about Lucifer (Satan) saying in his heart:

    “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.”

    In the verses in Isaiah that refer directly to Lucifer, several times it mentions him falling from the heights or the heavens. The Hebrew word for the heights or heavens used here is Hebrew Strongs 1116: “bamah”–Pronounced (bam-maw’)

    In Hebrew, the letter “Waw” or “Vav” is often transliterated as a “U” or “O,” and it is primarily used as a conjunction to join concepts together. So to join in Hebrew poetry the concept of lightning (Baraq) and a high place like heaven or the heights of heaven (Bam-Maw), the letter “U” or “O” would be used. So, Baraq “O” Bam-Maw or Baraq “U” Bam-Maw in Hebrew poetry similar to the style written in Isaiah, would translate literally to “Lightning from the heights.” The word “Satan” in Hebrew is a direct translation, therefore “Satan.”

    When Jesus said to His disciples in Luke 10:18 that He beheld Satan fall like lightning from heaven, if this were to be stated by a Jewish Rabbi today influenced by the poetry in the book of Isaiah, he would say these words in Hebrew–the words of Jesus in Luke 10:18 as, and I saw Satan as Baraq O Bam-Maw.

    Malie and Natasha are the names of Obama’s daughters. If we write those names backward (the devil does things in reverse) it would be “ailam ahsatan”. Now if we remove the letters that spell “Alah” (Allah being the false god of Islam), we get “I am Satan”. Coincidence? I don’t think so!

    Obama’s campaign logo when he ran in 2008 was a sun over the horizon in the west, with the landscape as the flag of the United States. In the Isalmic religion, they have their own messiah that they are waiting for called the 12th Imam, or the Mahdi (the Antichrist of the Bible), and one prophecy concerning this man’s appearance is the sun rising in the west.

    “Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— saying with a loud voice, ‘Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.'” (Revelation 14:6-7)

    Why have the words of Jesus in His Gospel accounts regarding His death, burial, and resurrection, been translated into over 3,000 languages, and nothing comes close (the Quran about 110 languages)? Because the same Spirit of God (YHVH) who created all people likewise transcends all people; therefore the power of His Word is not limited by people; while all other religions are man-made, therefore they tend to primarily stay within their own culture. The same God who speaks to all people through His creation of the heavens and earth that draws all people around the world likewise has sent His Word to the ends of the earth so that we may come to personally know Him to be saved in spirit and in truth through His Son Jesus Christ.

    Jesus stands alone among the other religions that say to rightly weigh the scales of good and evil and to make sure you have done more good than bad in this life. Is this how we conduct ourselves justly in a court of law? Bearing the image of God, is this how we project this image into reality?

    Our good works cannot save us. If we step before a judge, being guilty of a crime, the judge will not judge us by the good we have done, but rather by the crimes we have committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy God?

    God has brought down His moral laws through the 10 commandments given to Moses at Mt. Siani. These laws were not given so we may be justified, but rather that we may see the need for a savior. They are the mirror of God’s character of what He has written in our hearts, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it is wrong to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, murder, and so forth.

    We can try and follow the moral laws of the 10 commandments, but we will never catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law given to Moses became flesh about 2,000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by fulfilling the law, living a sinless perfect life that only God could fulfill.

    The gap between us and the law can never be reconciled by our own merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to grab on, through faith in Him, He will pull us up being the one to justify us. As in the court of law, if someone steps in and pays our fine, even though we are guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and let us go free. That is what Jesus did almost 2,000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled in the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood with His last word’s on the cross crying out, “It is finished!” (John 19:30).

    For God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). This is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.

    This is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. If that wrath was poured out on us, we would all perish to hell forever. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son whose soul could not be left in Hades but was raised and seated at the right hand of God in power.

    So now when we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), where God no longer sees the person who deserves His wrath, but rather the glorious image of His perfect Son dwelling in us, justifying us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death; now being conformed into the image of the heavenly man walking in a new nature, and no longer in the image of the fallen man Adam.

    Now what we must do is repent and put our trust and faith in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins, and to receive His Holy Spirit that we may be born again (for Jesus says we must be born again to see and enter the Kingdom of God in John chapter 3). This is not just head knowledge of believing in Jesus, but rather receiving His words, taking them to heart, so that we may truly be transformed into the image of God. Where we no longer live to practice sin, but rather turn from our sins and practice righteousness through faith in Him in obedience to His Word by reading the Bible.

    Our works cannot save us, but they can condemn us; it is not that we earn our way into everlasting life, but that we obey our Lord Jesus Christ:

    Jesus says,

    “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matthew 7:21-23)

    “And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him.” (Hebrews 5:9)

    “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’

    Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’

    And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8)
