Well, it looks like this Easter will be very different from every other year. Like most of you, we won’t be hosting any guests but would still like to set a pretty table for our immediate family. Needless to say, this year we have to get creative with the Easter decor.
Since I won’t be out shopping any time soon, I challenged myself to find ways to reuse last year’s decor…
Before I give you all the details on my Easter table, I want to tell you that I’m joining a wonderful group of bloggers for an Easter Tablescape Blog Hop! This blog hop is hosted by the talented Chloe of Celebrate and Decorate and her table is the first stop on the tour. Please also be sure to visit the links at the end of this post for tons of Easter tablescape ideas from 25 bloggers!
If you are just arriving from Design Morsels – Welcome! Isn’t Andrea’s table beautiful? I love what she did with her napkins!

Ways to reuse last year’s Easter decor:
Re-purpose what you have:
Last year, I bought the cute bunny banner above for my fireplace. It worked perfectly with the flowers and greenery on my mantel but I decided to find a new way to display it this year…
This year, I simply untied the knot at the end of the banner and slid each piece off. I divided up the banner pieces onto each place setting giving the bunny banner a whole new purpose. Two looks for the price of one!
Try a new location:
For the past several years, I have been displaying my bunny-on-a-stand on my stove mantel. This year, I decided to use the bunny for my centerpiece instead. After all, I probably won’t be heading to the store for fresh flowers anytime soon.
To add some greenery, I anchored the bunny with some faux palms from my guest bathroom.
Fold the same napkin in a new way:
No need to buy new napkins each year. Instead, just make your old ones look a little different. Last year, I rolled up my pink gingham napkin inside napkin rings…
This year, I layered the pink gingham napkins between my white plates…
Gingham napkins – Homegoods / another pink napkin option
Even though both years I combined pink and green, the looks are totally different.
Definitely, one of the easiest ways to reuse last year’s decor. In my opinion, a pink and green combination always works for Easter…or spring!
Carry the colors through the kitchen:
It’s always nice to continue the table colors throughout the kitchen…
Last year, I used the pitcher of pink flowers for my centerpiece. This year, I simply moved the flowers up to the stove mantel for more color. I’ve actually been moving the flowers around a lot lately…I just tried them on my fireplace mantel as well!
Just a few splashes of color can brighten up a room. With the current state of the world, we could all use some color to cheer us up!
Hopefully, my simple ideas inspired you to create an Easter tablescape with things you already own.
Now you can start searching around your house for ways to reuse last year’s decor! If you would like more Easter inspiration, be sure to “hop” over and see how I decorated my table a few years ago. And if you love pink, be sure to see how I set an Easter table with pink flowers.
Once again, thank you to Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate for hosting!
