Last year I did a post on different Easter Tablescapes To Try, so this year I decided to add one more to the list. I chose purple + berry (pink) as my color palette, and really love how the colors worked together. They are a perfect spring table pairing and work well with valentines day decor also. You can easily tweak a couple of accessories and leave it out the entire season. Setting a Purple Easter Table: Spring Decor.

How to Set a Purple Easter Table: Spring Decor
I love to decorate my dining room all year long, so basically it’s a revolving door of different colors and holiday decor. But this can get expensive – very quickly.
So I try to come up with a color palette each year for the entire spring season. One that will take me from Valentine’s Day, right into spring time, and then finally into Easter.
This year I decided on purple and berry, and I was able to use a lot of things I already owned! Win- Win!
Let’s get to it!

How to Set a Purple Easter Table: Spring Decor
#1 Use Scrapbook Paper as Placemats
Using different patterned pieces of scrapbook paper is an easy and inexpensive way to bring in purple to your Easter Table.
I have purple stripes, polka dots and gingham check for mine. But you can keep them all the same too.
Here is a before picture. Of course my Boomer has to be involved in the process 🙂
#2 Add a Berry-Colored Ribbon to Centerpiece
Remember the wreaths with the berry- colored ribbon I used for our fall dining room? I used a couple of those ribbon pieces to weave into the Easter table centerpiece.
It adds just a little color to the greenery, and blends in with the purple “placemats” without being too matchy-matchy.
#3 Add Purple Votive Candles
Sometimes, even a small accessory makes a big statement. These 4 little lavender votive candles add just a sprinkle of color to the linen table runner, and merge the other shades of purple together.
I found these little beauties at the dollar store. Aren’t they just precious?
#4 Use Berry-Colored Egg Candles
These sweet little egg candles are perfect for the Easter tablescape because they change the table from a spring table to an Easter table.
I also found these candles at the dollar store. Sweet and simple.
#5 Use Purple Stemmed Wine Glasses
Try adding purple or berry-colored wine glasses to your table decoration, either at the stem or the bowl. It just adds a little shimmer to the table centerpiece, and adds height as well.
I found four of these at Home Goods, and used 2 similar clear ones at the captain’s chairs table settings.
TIP: Don’t be afraid to mix-n-match dishware or stemware. It makes the table decor more interesting, and less formal.
#6 Use a Berry-Colored Wreath
I chose this berry-colored wreath because it has 4 different shades of purple/pink in it. This wreath ties in all of the other shades I am using: purple, lavender, berry, and taffy.
Since this wreath was just a little too dark for our space, I decided to add a white ribbon and the white metal wreath (from our fall dining room chairs) to it.

I found my berry-colored wreath at Home Goods. Click 31 Cheerful & Colorful Spring Wreaths for more wreath inspiration.
#7 Use Lavender Floral Stems
The easiest way to add purple or lavender to your Easter or spring tablescape is by using flowers.
If you have a little extra money or are having a dinner party, buy fresh flowers. If you are just setting up your table for looks, faux floral stems or arrangements are fine.
I use these 2 lavender allium stems all the time. They are from Pier 1, but discontinued – sorry!
Purple tulips and purple hydrangeas are also a classic choice for a traditional Easter table.
#8 Try These DIY Purple Cross Napkin Rings
I found these adorable wooden cross ornaments last year at Hobby Lobby, and couldn’t wait to create something magical with them.
I really do love how they turned out, and they completely transform the table into an Easter Table.

TRANSITION TO VALENTINES DAY OR SPRING TABLE
For a valentine’s day or spring table:
- simply remove the egg candles and cross napkin rings.
For valentine’s day table:
- Add a foam heart to hang in the berry-colored wreath
- Use foam hearts as placecards in plates
Have a Berry Happy Easter, Spring, & Valentines Day!!
Love & Easter Hugs 🙂
