Easter Sunday may be the time for Easter egg coloring, distributing Easter gifts for kids, and otherwise celebrating the holiday, but it's also an opportunity to display gorgeous Easter centerpiece ideas. The right Easter centerpiece can strike the perfect mood for your brunch, egg hunt, or traditional dinner, and all it takes is a little time and creativity. If you think you don't have time to design the perfect tablescape before Easter Sunday, think again. All your spread needs is a spring-inspired Easter centerpiece, and you're good to go. You don't have to splurge on an expensive tablecloth or Easter china for the day: Just use your everyday dinnerware and place a showstopping arrangement in the middle.

Bunny Centerpiece

Let the bunny greet your guests when they sit down to eat. The rabbit might not be real (for obvious reasons), but the grass is definitely all natural. For this one, you can either grow the grass in the container (it takes about one to two weeks) or buy some greenery to recreate the look. Top with chocolate “carrots” that your guests can take after the end of the meal. Don’t forget about the rest of the table, too—Courtney of Pizzazzerie added an orange tablecloth and napkins, rimmed plates, and rabbit-themed cups.

Coffee Filter Tulips

You’ll know these “flowers” will last forever—or at least longer than the real ones do. The same time you’re dyeing eggs with your kids for the Easter party, you can also use the leftover dye to create these paper flowers. You’ll need flat coffee filters, tall and wide straws, white glue, and scissors. Dip just the top of the filters and let dry—the dye will soak through to cover the whole filter. Place in a pretty vase like Amanda of Aunt Peaches did, and your table is set. Or, you can make a flower for each of your guests and place at each place setting for a party favor.

Easter Egg Flowers

Who knew eggs could make pretty flowers, too? When they’re hidden in a bright spring bouquet, they’re bound to be a charming surprise for guests at the table who happen to peer closely. To make these, blow out an egg by piercing both of the ends and blowing out the contents with a straw, then rinse the egg so there’s no sticky residue. Carefully place the eggs on the skewers and stick into your bouquet. You can cut the skewers to match the height of the flowers, so it fits just right in the vase.

Egg Topiary

Sand and Sisal

Topiaries along a dining table can make for an elegant, garden party-inspired tablescape—which is perfect for the spring season. The eggs on this topiary are in a classic Easter palette of pastel blues, but you can choose any color scheme you want, depending on the rest of your tablescape. Kim of Sand & Sisal used plastic craft or paper-mâché eggs for this project. You’ll need a Styrofoam cone, chalky finish paint, brown acrylic paint (for the spots), and preserved green moss. Depending on your table size, you might want to make more than one.

Fabric Covered Vases

Got a couple of empty bottles on hand? Make them your Easter centerpiece. Take a wine bottle or any other kind of glass bottle, rinse out, and cover with fabric to dress them up. The best part is you don’t need to buy an expensive or ornate bouquet of flowers—pretty tulips will do. Paint stripes on plain fabric with craft paint, like Liz of I Heart Naptime did for this project, or if you’ve got some pretty spring-inspired fabric around your house, use that. Wrap the fabric around the bottle, secure with hot glue, and tie with twine or any other kind of ribbon.

Mason Jars

Mason Jars Tulip Centerpiece
House by Hoff

Sometimes all you need for a centerpiece is a decorative box or crate. April of House by Hoff used tulips in colored jars and placed them inside this rustic-looking crate. She also left two jars empty and put flatware inside for guests to grab. To complete the look, just roll out a table runner to place underneath. (The runner doesn’t have to scream Easter—this one is in a classic stripe.) It’s so simple and easy—plus, you might even have most of these items in your house already.

Easter Egg Hunt Centerpiece

Everyday Occasions

For a cheerful and natural addition to your table, create your own little slice of a garden for the centerpiece. Since these are planted, you can keep this one out on your dining table all spring. Jenny of Everyday Occasions planted daffodils in a wooden container, but you can switch out the flowers depending on the season (she added paperwhites for the holidays). To add an Easter element, she placed blue and brown eggs in moss. And if that’s not enough for your Easter table, you can write the names of your guests on eggs and display them at each table setting.
