Easter kids table ideas

Even if you’re planning a fancy Easter brunch for friends & family, it’s always a good idea to have a separate table for the little ones… not only is it fun for them to have a playful, kid-friendly setting of their own, but it also reduces the risk of spills & slips with the adult table’s fine china & linens!

Colorful scrapbook paper is one of my favorite tools for whipping up super cute AND budget-friendly place settings in no time. There are so many great papers to choose from and you can use them for everything from the place mats to the place cards!

You can also create cute place cards from plastic easter eggs sitting on top of a strip of looped scrapbook paper. (These work great for DIY Easter Egg holders too.) Use a sharpie to write each child’s name on the eggs, and fill them with candy so they double as an after-meal treat or take home party favor.

For extra detail, decorate the holders with 3-D stickers or other scrapbook embellishments and add some “grass” under the eggs using shredded green paper (as seen in image #1, above).

Time Saver: Make clean-up easy by skipping the linen napkins, glass drinkware, and regular utensils on the kids table and opting for disposables instead, especially when entertaining very little ones.

The paper used here is from the American Crafts Craft Fair collection: Lucy Hootski (owls), Ruth Buttonham (buttons), and Marge Hemmingway (stripes). Here are a couple online shops where you can still find it:

• Two Peas in a Bucket
Cropping Corner
• Scrapbook Express

Of course, you can use absolutely any paper of your choice as well. (The American Crafts Blue Skies collection is very Easter/Spring appropriate too!)

    OOH! I like this idea. I’m not having an Easter party but I am having a Princess and The Frog party for my daughter this weekend and you’ve given me an idea for the place settings. I was going to do napkin rolls, but I like the idea of a flat napkin instead! Thanks for sharing – you’re a rock star!

    Very cute ideas! I also think it would be cute to put an Easter basket in the center of the kids table as a center piece. Put some candy in it and cute little Easter themed toys the kids can take home!
