Add global style to your tablescape with a colorful botanical Easter setting. Bright florals, palms, and monstera leaves set the tone for this holiday.
Hey there! Welcome to day 5 of A Very Global Easter where my friend Casa Watkins Living and I are sharing 7 days of globally inspired Easter DIYs and decor. If you are popping over from Stephanie’s blog, welcome! We are a military family living overseas in Japan. You’ll get to see a little bit what it’s like living in a traditional Japanese home while I share my tropical Easter table with you. If you haven’t been over to Casa Watkins Living, make sure to check out her rustic and global Easter tablescape!
A Colorful Tropical Easter Table
This table is so fun and colorful and was super easy to throw together. I wanted to add a botanical feel to my Easter table so I picked up palm and monstera leaves from the dollar store ahead of time.
I started with a lace table runner on the table. Each place setting has a woven charger, white Ikea dinner plate, bamboo salad plate, paper napkin, silverware, and colorful glass tumbler. One large botanical leaf is tucked around each plate. This alone would be plenty if you were setting food in the middle of the table.
If you are serving food from a buffet or the kitchen all you need is a simple centerpiece to go with the bold table settings. Mine consists of three Japanese vases. Two are trendy concrete but the gourd is a special piece of pottery from nearby Miyajima. They already had artificial blooms in them so I all I had to do was set them on the table.
A few of my DIY Easter eggs complete the Easter setting.
Palm leaves and Easter eggs are perfect for this non traditional table but still have a nod towards our religious beliefs. I love that!
I’m super excited I managed to get a birds eye view of the entire table. Super tricky to do in my little dining room! The bright colors and tropical leaves make me think of summer! But I’m okay with Spring coming first.
Apart from the 600 yen (about $6) I spent on the dollar store leaves, everything else I had. I love using the same staples for my table and switch it up with different centerpieces and textiles.
