Farmhouse Easter Table Setting – with Gold Lanterns, Pink Flowers and Pastel Eggs

A farmhouse Easter table setting all from one store, and all reusable in other spaces or at other times of year too!

Pretty table settings are some of my favorite things to create! I’m not sure if it’s blending all the hard and soft elements together into something beautiful or if it’s knowing that a pretty table is a blessing and a joy to everyone who gathers around it. In any case, setting a table with all sorts of personality is the best! Even though it’s not our turn to host Easter this year – my sister and I have swapped hosting each of the three major holidays (Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas) back and forth between our homes ever since our parents ran out of room at their house for all of us – I wanted to come up with a farmhouse Easter table setting to share with you. You know, in case YOU are hosting this year!

And because I know that you and I are both BUSY, I wanted to see if I could come up with a table setting from only ONE store with zero running to and from all the shops. I also wanted to choose pieces that – although not necessarily the cheapest I could find – could be used in other rooms or for other table settings without looking like a completely duplicate table.


The elements in this ‘farmhouse Easter’ table setting are pretty much all from Micheals.

Gold lanterns for easter

The rectangular gold lanterns filled with moss rocks, faux eggs and mini nests – all Michaels. Many from years past actually. The lanterns will be making an appearance in my daughter’s room makeover in the next few weeks.

gold and white chargers

The geometric gold chargers (LOVE these!), raw wood bread boards (that I will stain or something at a later date), and pretty flowered ribbons, again all from Michaels. And with the exception of the cut ribbons, all usable again!

Even the little black canvases and white marker place cards are from Michaels.

Pretty much the only things I didn’t get at Michaels this time around are the dishes and flatware (which are both from Birch Lane).

I even used flour sack towels from Michaels as cheap fabric napkins!

    Hello! Your tablescape is so very springy! Are the beautiful gold lanterns a new purchase from Michael’s or did you already have them?
