I got a little colorful with this kid’s Easter tablescape, hence the “fiesta” in the title! Although there are only 2 “kids” in the family (& one is more like an infant who can’t even sit at her own table lol), I still couldn’t resist practicing a fun table setup! I found these wildly-colored Easter egg plates at the Target, as always & had to get to work on a bright, kids table right away! The bold colors remind of all the summer fiestas I see in my future.
First things first, the table cloth. This is a kid’s table, so I just used a sheet! We’re strictly a no-top-sheet household; so they’re always lying around. I wanted all the elements to be soft & kid-friendly. They should be able to play with everything on table.
Which is what led me to making my “runner.” I laid felt carrots (Target dollar spot) down the length of the table then piled on pom-pom ribbon & ric-rac. The rainbow ric-rac is a favorite!
Centerpieces consisted of cheap baskets, Easter grass & empty, plastic eggs. All ready to be played with or looked upon. Whatever happens happens at the kid’s table y’all!
I had 2 thoughts with the bowls of candy on the table. 1- They can just eat it. 2- They can fill the empty eggs in the baskets for each other with the candy. Either way, it adds a super colorful element.
The Easter egg paper plates are a Target find. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package of plates & found 3 different designs inside! I had no idea. The daisies are probably cutest! Each place setting got a set of PEEPS, because why not? It’s Easter & they add even more color! Which is obvs the theme here!
I used green plasticware & orange napkins to create carrots. It’s a simple idea that can go a long way! I took the same idea with green mason jars & orange drinking straws. I also broke my “soft” table look with the glasses, but it was too cute not to incorporate! I may do the same thing for my real Easter table too!
Most importantly, each plate holds a little, baby chick! I created name cards that will double as houses for the chicks, perfect for play! The name cards were actually a DIY banner kit from Target. I found them on clearance & wasn’t sure what I’d use them for, but knew they’d go perfectly on my kid’s table. I folded them in half & placed a letter sticker in the middle with each guest’s first initial. Perfect placecard/baby chick house combo.
Do you set special tables for the kiddos? I love using the bright color scheme & creating a soft table that encourages play!
