This year I decided to create a children’s Easter table in bright colors for my grandkids.
Filled with chocolate bunnies, bright colored jelly beans and other fun things. Imagine Peter Rabbit meets Alice in Wonderland story book type theme.
Inspiration for Children’s Easter table
To create this whimsical look I started with pink plastic glasses, bright orange faux carrots mixed with my yellow and pink plaid and polka dot melamine plates. Bright colored jelly beans and Lindt chocolate bunnies bring in the whimsy.
A fun idea I came up with is to use candle holders to hold my gold leaf eggs.
They could even hold hard boiled eggs.
I found these bright green candle holders at Ikea on clearance for .25!
I only wish I would’ve bought more!
Children’s Easter table centerpiece
For the centerpiece I grabbed a basket from my stash and some of my pink faux flower pots (also from Ikea years ago) and a little moss.
Then I hid in a few of my gold leaf eggs here and there. I think the kids will love looking at this Easter centerpiece and finding a few hidden eggs in there.
Children’s Easter table place settings
To bring in a little natural look I used my favorite bamboo woven place mats.
Melamine yellow, pink, white and orange plaid and polka dot plates are perfect for Easter.
They are the best to use with kids because they won’t break!
The pink plastic cups I bought last year at Michael’s for maybe $4!
They look fancy for my grandkids and they too won’t break.
Children’s name cards
I was going to use the faux carrots that I bought at the grocery store as name cards.
Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to print their names and attach them to the carrots before I left for Italy.
I will do that when I get home.
My Cricut can cut out vinyl letters and then I can attach them to the carrots.
Bunny ear napkin fold
For a cute look I folded my napkins into bunny ears. The openings are perfect little nests to hold my Lindt chocolate bunnies.
I created a quick video showing how to fold them.
To fold the napkins into bunny ears is super simple.
Start with a square napkin, fold into a triangle. Next starting at the tip of the triangle roll into a fairly tight tube. Fold in half and tie closed with twine or ribbon.
Leaving enough out for the bunny ears.
They can be tall or floppy depending on the look you want.
Bright colored jelly beans
To bring in some fun and whimsy and sweet treats, I sprinkled bright colored jelly beans all over the table.
The grandkids are going to LOVE that don’t you agree?

I used loose candy often on my tablescapes. We eat at all of them. The grandkids love the candy too. I never thought of jelly beans! Duh! I’ll be using them now.
Karins Kottage says
Linda I hope you share your tablescape with jelly beans soon! I loved how it brought some frivolity to my table. Happy Easter friend.
Karen you did such a beautiful job! I want to sit here! 🙂
Such a cute bright and colorful table. It’s just perfect and any child would love to sit at this table.
Oh my gosh Karen! Your table is an absolute delight! So colourful and festive. Your attention to detail is evident throughout! Your plate stack is like a ray of sunshine! And, that centrepiece! WOW! Love it 🙂
Rita C at Panoply says
This is darling, Karin! I love the overall look, and if I were one of the grandkids, I’d be tearing right into those jelly beans as soon as I sat down (or, let’s be honest, when I walked by). This is totally fun for the kids (and adults too!). Love the mix of the bright lemon with pink and orange. Those faux flowers look real. I love it when bloggers share their best deals in collecting table elements. It makes for even more fun in the hunt to score items low-priced. Thanks for bringing the fun and whimsy to the table in this blog hop. Safe travels, and happy spring and Happy Easter.
Karins Kottage says
I love that you said “you would be tearing into the jelly beans as soon as you sit down but lets be honest” when you walked by the table you would eat some too! I am the same way! I see those shiny little sweet jelly beans and I cannot pass them by without grabbing a couple! Thank you for hosting the Easter tablescape hop… I just got home from Italy and need to catch up on leaving comments for everyone.
Karin, I have a real soft spot for children’s table settings and your creative effort are delightful. It brought to mind the line from the song, “All things bright and beautiful.” Children of any age will enjoy this colorful setting. Happy Easter!
Karin, what a fun table for the grandkids (and us kid-at-heart adults). I love the bright colors and patterns. The yellow pattern plates and bright pink glasses contrast so nicely with the pink floral centerpiece with moss and chocolate bunnies. They are so darling. The jelly bean scattered throughout the table add that polka dot feel and makes clean up easy. Just eat them! Such a fun and playful table. I am sure they children, whatever age, will enjoy it. Happy Easter!
Sandra @ Dinner at Eight says
Oh, I do think your grandkids will love this table! What child wouldn’t love such a pretty, colorful, whimsical table? All your choices for the table contribute to the fun! Happy Easter
Such a happy, colorful and sweet table Karin! You’ve got me craving chocolate and jelly beans!
Cutest table! I’m still a child at heart and would love dining at this darling table. A few jelly beans might go missing! Just saying! Seriously my little grand nieces would delight at joining your grands at this fun table. Love the cute plates and pink glasses. Happy Spring! Happy Easter!
Karin this is an adorable and fun table. The kids will love it! Dang, I want to sit there.
Pam Richardson says
Karin, this is an adorable table for the little ones! It is so colorful and fun, and your grands will love it for sure. Using melamine is perfect. I have been following your Italian journey, quite interesting what you all have undertaken and I can’t wait to see it completed!
Ricki Jill Treleaven says
BTW I’m so going to steal your idea with the bunny ears….you’ll see it on my blog in the very near future! ;P
Ricki Jill Treleaven says
What a fun and bright tablescape for children. I love everything about it, especially the cheerful melamine plates. Your videos are fun and helpful, too! 😀
Ann Krucek says
What a fun kids Easter table!! No doubt my grandson would stand at the edge of that table and just drool!! I love the patterned plates and the bright flowers!! I hope you have a wonderful Easter and a happy Spring!!!🐣💜🌷
Lauren S says
Haha. I agree with Kari; I, too, thought the jelly beans were Fruit Loops! This is an adorable table and I’m sure your grandchildren will love it. It is so fun and festive. I’ll have to plan something similar for my grandgirls. Happy Easter!
Carrie E. McKillion says
Great fun ideas – aren’t those children lucky! ♥
Kari Rogers-Miller says
Karin what a pretty and bright table. When I first glanced at the table decor, I thought the jelly beans were fruit loops! LOL And I know the kids would love whatever grandma puts down but all your decor is not only kid friendly (melamine plates and cups) but they are pretty too. The carrots will be so cute when you add the name tags, although I love them as is. The bunny “nest” of bunny ear napkins are perfect for your chocolate bunnies. So glad you have joined our little group of bloggers, your creativity is inspiring. Have a great and Blessed Easter and enjoy those grands…too soon they grow up. 🙂
Kari @ Me and My Captain
Those chocolate bunnies and jelly beans won’t last long Karin! How cute to put the chocolate bunnies in the bunny ear napkin, that looks adorable! I love the idea of putting their name on those fat carrots, cute! The centerpiece with hidden eggs is so fun and pretty, they will love that! Safe travels, I can’t wait to hear about your trip!
Hi Karin! What a darling kids’ table! I love the colors and all of your whimsical accents are certain to delight little ones! Pinned! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction
Karin, cute and yummy! I can just imagine how fun it is for your grandkids to sit down at this table designed just for them. All the bright colors in the plates, cups, and flowers plus the edible bits of candy, chocolates, and your bunny fold napkin would make the child in me very happy:)
Delightful table friend!!!
Linda Primmer says
Karen, your children’s Easter table is so fun and whimsical. The grands are going to love this table. I totally agree using plastic and melamine. They make such cute patterns now. The bunny napkin fold holding the Lindt bunny is adorable. I can just see the grands eating the jelly beans off the table. Cute idea using candleholders as egg cups. A pleasure hopping along with you.
Karins Kottage says
Thank you so much LInda! It was super fun to put together and I can’t wait to show the grandkids and have them eat their chocolate bunnies 🙂
