It’s time to start thinking about planning your Easter celebration. The holiday is just around the corner and it’s nice to celebrate the arrival of spring with beautiful table settings.

If you would like to sync your table setting with the holiday, here are three stylish ideas for your Easter tablescape:

Bunny menu cards
These little bunny menu cards are a wonderful way to greet your guests at the dinner table, and if you’re looking to give your table a modern refresh then this idea is for you.

Placed upon a simple white plate with a crisp, white napkin, these cards provide that perfect touch for an elegant Easter.

There are many Easter bunny templates on the internet for this idea.

Simply choose one you like and print it to the scale you require to fit your dinner plates. Be sure to use a nice cardstock for this idea.

Once you have found a bunny template you like, you can either print your menu items onto the bunny cards or you can choose to hand write them.

If you do handwrite the menu items on the already printed cards, try using a nice gold or silver pen. Cut the bunnies out with a small pair of scissors.

Add a fresh white carnation, a white pom-pom, or an artificial white flower to the tail of the bunny.

Place the cards on a simple, folded, white napkin on your dinner plate.

Apothecary jars
There are many styles and sizes of apothecary jars currently on store shelves. These jars make a beautiful presentation for an Easter table setting when filled with green jelly beans and topped with a small, chocolate Easter bunny. Alternatively, combine white jelly beans in these jars with a few white chocolate bunnies for a more monochromatic setting.

Natural place settings
I love Easter place settings with all natural elements.

Brown or sage green eggs complemented with small, natural wreaths look beautiful for simple tablescapes.

Add elements of silver and white to your table with twigs from your garden.

A simple white tulip tied with raffia on a linen napkin completes the look.
