Inside: Looking for easy ways to add Easter to your spring decor? Tour my home for Easter ideas for vignettes, centerpieces, and decor for coffee tables, mantels, and kitchen counters that don’t take much time! ➡
There’s no stopping it. As the sun warms and the grass greens, the bunnies multiply.
I’m not talking about nature – I’m talking about me. And my annual mid-spring urge to decorate for Easter.
Without fail, by the time the official first day of spring gets here, I’m ready to break out the bunnies and eggs. I’ve just decorated for spring within the last month, so it would be a little crazy (even for me) to completely redecorate for a second time in one season. But around this time, I long for the sweet and happy nostalgia of Easter.
My answer to quick and easy Easter decorating?
Vignettes and centerpieces to the rescue!
Just a few strategically placed Easter decor items bring the joy and memories of Easter that I crave, without totally redecorating. Plus, using centerpieces and decor groupings in a few focused places is more cost-efficient!
Come on in for the second part of my tour of the spring season, and I’ll show you how I added a little easy Easter decor to my early spring decorations. And how I only put it where we see it the most.
I’m thrilled to be included in the huge annual “Bloggers Best Spring Home Tour” and a big thank you to our wonderful host Kelly at The Tattered Pew! You can find the links to all 30 talented blogging friends at the bottom of this post for a basketful of great ideas to get your home ready for spring.

Spring and Easter vignette and table decor for the family room.
Let’s work backward from the early spring tour and see what’s changed, this time starting in the family room.
The coffee table and mantel are the focal points of this room so a touch of Easter was in order here.
Easter coffee table decor.
On the coffee table, most of the early spring items stayed. But I moved things around and emptied the tray for a new spring coffee table centerpiece.
This simple Easter idea was created with just a few items I had in my craft and decorating stash:
- Wood tray
- Grapevine wreath
- Bun pillow moss
- Bunny figurine
- Faux eggs
And ta-da, an instant organic “nest” for Peter Cottontail!
Easter mantel decor.
The glass vase of spring flowering branches stayed on the mantel. But in early spring I had it filled with cheery yellow lemons. I replaced the bright yellow of the lemons with large Easter eggs in pastel colors.
I didn’t have enough eggs to fill the vase, so I stuffed it with green moss to take up the extra space. What was a stand-in for a shortage of eggs actually came out looking intentional – like Easter grass that cushions the eggs in an Easter basket!
Easter decorations for shelves.
The built-in bookcase is the same except I moved the DIY twig vase here from the early spring kitchen vignette. It became the perfect third partner in this spring shelf styling “rule of three” along with a circa early 2000’s Easter photo of one of my little bunnies.
I always layer a little of the current season in with my white dish collection on the family room hutch. This Easter it’s cute bunny plates, a nest of eggs in a milk glass goblet, and a couple of DIY vintage rabbit garden pots.
And a cloche is a perfect item for quick and easy seasonal decorating. For spring and Easter, just add a bunny, bird nests, and eggs!
Spring and Easter decor for the kitchen.
Now let’s walk over to the adjoining kitchen and see what’s changed from the early spring tour.
Spring and Easter vignettes for kitchen counters.
The focal point of our French country kitchen is the island, so it’s a great place for seasonal decor. For Easter, a replaced the spring lemon vignette with this rustic basket full of DIY faux chocolate bunnies.
At first glance, my husband didn’t remember them from last year and wondered what would possess me to buy so much chocolate. April Fool’s joke for this year – check.😂
This was a super easy Easter centerpiece to arrange. I only needed:
- A basket
- Green preserved moss
- Easter eggs
- Faux chocolate rabbits (or you can use other rabbit figurines)
- Faux flowers (I always save the bits that fall off)
This kitchen counter holds another simple Easter cloche vignette. I’ve had these adorable bunnies for years and they still make me smile. I love coming up with a new fun idea for them each spring.
They may have had too much bubbly on the wine bar last year, but this year they’ve been trapped with some tempting Easter goodies.
Apparently too many Reeses and Cadbury eggs don’t just make for a fluffy tummy – they’re also a good sleep aid.
Easter decor for the kitchen dining table.
The table runner stayed in place from the lemon theme spring table, along with its fresh yellow and white cross runner made from two pretty spring dish towels.
But for Easter, I replaced the lemons in the napkin bunny fold with colorful Easter eggs in yellow and green.
And this cheerful yellow and green table needed a happy Easter centerpiece. I started with this rabbit garden statue I found at Canton Trade Days years ago:
And he may be planning to make off with the special touch – a cabbage vase full of fresh flowers.
See the easy steps to make your own in “How to Make a Cabbage Vase for a Simple Spring Centerpiece“.
Spring and Easter table decorations and centerpiece for the dining room.
As we move into the dining room area, we pass the tulips from the early spring tour. They still look amazing because they’re faux, but these real-touch tulip fakes are so good they could pass for fresh tulips!
The ginger jars and pale pink cherry blossoms moved to the sideboard and with the addition of a sentimental rabbit figurine, it’s instantly Easter-ready.
I set the dining room table for Easter with a dough bowl centerpiece of bunnies and spring flowers, and fuschia napkins on the place settings flow with the pink in the living room.
Instead of place cards, each guest got a monogrammed Easter egg.
And you can never go wrong with a dough bowl for a simple centerpiece! I made this spring arrangement with:
- Green preserved moss and reindeer moss
- Real touch white hydrangeas from Hobby Lobby
- Faux pink tulips also from Hobby Lobby
- Ivory real touch tulips
- Vintage rabbit figurines
The vintage ceramic bunnies were my mother-in-law’s – they look so sweet in this centerpiece.💗
For more details and photos see the post “Easy Easter Tablescape: Splendid Spring in Pink and Green“.
Spring and Easter vignettes and table decor for the living room.
Since the bunnies made an early appearance in the living room, not much has changed over here for Easter.
I kept the bright pink pop of color with tulips in vintage milk glass on the mantel.
And the coffee table still has its pink tulips, but for Easter I placed them in this (formerly brown resin) artichoke planter made to look like ceramic with paint.
The gold bunny figurines from the Target Dollar Spot serve as bookends and complete the living room’s Easter coffee table vignette.
And their matching buddy still sports his pink bow on the end table.
This is an easy vignette idea for Easter end tables: Place a grounding decorative object like this urn or a plant and a bunny figurine on top of a stack of books.

Mission accomplished – adding these Easter touches didn’t take much time. And these small physical symbols of Easter make me happy when I see them as I go about my day.
They remind me of the joy of rebirth and celebration. And of sweet memories of egg hunts and the Easter bunny.

Thanks so much Rachel. My pup is my constant companion and I don’t know what I’d do without her. Was your fur baby a yorkie too?

Thanks so much Tammy!!

It’s hard for me to say which one of your spaces is my favorite! The dining room looks so pretty with its pops of pink. I love the “chocolate” bunnies, the glass vase with the eggs nestled in the moss looks so pretty on your mantle and what a good idea for making the organic nest for your bunny! Oh, and the bunny artwork on your tv is fab!
Thank you my sweet friend! I am loving all the TV artwork on YouTube now!!
