Whether it’s your first time hosting Easter Brunch or your 30th time, everyone can use some fresh inspiration. We want to repurpose things and give guests something to talk about when the conversation about who got which candy in their Easter basket wanes.

The first thing to keep in mind when you’re putting together your ideal tabletop is to ask yourself, “What is going to fill it up?” Is family-style food your thing? Is a killer flower arrangement? Are cute signs and placecards? You can have it all if you follow these tips.

1. Start with basics like the Linen Hemstitch Table Runner. It’s a piece you can use for any holiday but it provides a neutral start to any decor. I also used the Sketch Bunny Napkins which are playful, a neutral tone, and totally worth a splurge.

2. Stick with one type of flower in medium sized modern glass vases. I used Parrot Tulips because they’re in season and very easy to find at a farmer’s market. An alternative to flowers is to fill a vase with organic carrots. The greenery at the top can serve as your floral element and you can eat them after Easter! If you use something like Aegean Clear Glass Vases you’ll have plenty of room to place food items around on the table as well.Pottery Barn DIY Colorful Easter Brunch

3. Repurpose home items and fresh produce for signage. I used the Serafina Vanity Mirror for an unexpected “Happy Easter” sign. I also used spray-painted carrots for place cards. Simply tape off the top of the carrot with painter’s tape, cover with 2 coats of metallic spray paint, and attach a piece of card stock paper for the place card. Voila!

4. Add pops of color by using Pressed Milk Glass Votives, Robin Eggs, or hand painted wooden eggs like these from my friend Ashley Pepitone.

5. Embrace change. We all long for a picturesque table scape with perfectly placed napkins, shiny silverware, and calligraphy place cards. But, let’s be honest, we ALL place our cell phone right next to all that lovely as soon as we sit down. I say embrace the change and incorporate it into your decor by providing a cell pocket. I put this one together with color-coordinated scrapbook paper, scissors, and hot glue. The phone immediately has a home to sit in for easy access for all that Instagram-ing you might need to do, and yet it fits in with the table decor perfectly.
