In this adult life of mine I've realized my house doesn't feel adequately decorated for any season until my dining room table is tricked out for the holidays. I love creating a good tablescape (on a budget, always) with a mix of botanical and tabletop decor. Last fall I bought some faux eucalyptus garland to set the base for my DIY centerpiece and I've used it every season since!
Now that it's officially spring (hooray, friends, we made it!) I'm switching over all my tabletop decor to a spring garden theme with some Easter flare. My tip for decorating your dining table on a budget is to choose classic, versatile core pieces you can reuse as the year goes on. Like the garland I already mentioned, for example. Candlesticks, lanterns, terrariums, those sorts of things; they all can be repurposed for a new look each season!
I went to Pier One to pick out some spring and Easter tabletop decor pieces and y'all I could've shopped 'til I dropped and blown my budget in there. SO many cute things for good prices and so much good tabletop inspo. In fact, the basis of my table is inspired by one of Pier One's displays so thank you Pier One team for helping a sister out!
This is what my table looks like so far! I'll link the exact items below, as well as other springy and/or Easter pieces I love and want to add! My next move is to pick some chargers to complete the place settings. I decided to mix my wedding china with some pink blossom vintage china I found at Goodwill! So can't link it but I do have some garden- and Easter-inspired dishware linked below.

What's On My Table
WHITE METAL LANTERNS
I got the x-small and small sizes. They also come in black and galvanized metal.
They also come in gold if that fits your overall design better!
WHITE FORSYTHIA GLIMMER STRING LIGHTS
They're battery powered (3 AAs) you can hide on your table. They have different settings, too, to blink, flash, fade, etc. Super fun for kids and they look gorgeous and springy even with the lights off.
They also come in with easter eggs instead of flowers! So cute!
SPECKLED EGGS FAUX BIRDS NEST
I love this little birds nest to place inside the lantern or to put on top of each place setting.
SPECKLED EGGS SET OF 12
A twelve pack of pale green, cream, and pink eggs that are so great for using in the lanterns, on place settings, or stuck inside your greenery.
Literally the same table runner I've had on my dining room table since October. It goes with allll the holiday decorations!
Did Some-Bunny Say Dishware?
I really want some cute bunny salad plates to really take my Easter place settings to the next level. Look how many cute options there are! Which is your favorite, I can't decide!

This serving platter coordinates with the dish set shown above!
I LOOOOOVE this magnolia dish set! You could use it all spring and summer; so classic, so southern!
I love the little bunny sketch in the corner of this serving platter.
How gorgeous is this pink milk glass cake stand?! It's part of a whole collection that also comes in a spring green.
I know a white or metallic charger would be the most versatile but MAN OH MAN do I love this vintage blue color!
Get ready for an overland of Easter adorableness!
I posted the runner I have in the "What's On My Table" section and I love it but DANG are these super tempting! Thinking the macrame could be a cool detail to flow with my mid-century modern living room decor.
All hail spring! Gimme all the greenery, blooms, botanicals, and bunnies! Do you decorate your house for Easter? I feel like we go overboard with Christmas decor but Easter isn't done up as much. Anyone else feel that?
Thank you so so much for coming by the blog today! Always appreciate your time and all the sharing and support you show!
