Easter is approaching, so naturally, I reached out to experts to uncover what they're planning for their Easter tables this year. Responses ranged from the usual taper candles to vibrant floral arrangements, but one emerging trend stood out among the rest.

Scalloped edges are officially taking the cake as the most cheerful interior design trend for 2025. ‘If it doesn’t have a cute scalloped edge, I don’t want it,’ declares Taos-based interior designer Nicole Cullum of Color Caravan. ‘Scalloped placemats, napkins, plates, and even glassware are fresh, adorable, and sophisticated all at once.’ she enthuses. 

Luxury event planner Emily Coyne also sings the praises of scallops, particularly favoring scalloped napkins adorned with spring-like prints such as botanicals and pastel gingham. According to Coyne, these patterns and textures effortlessly elevate the tablescape's design, creating a ‘cozy and inviting feel.’

While this trend may still be in its infancy, I took it upon myself to hunt down the the chicest and most festive scalloped pieces available right now. Some are expert recommendations, while others are personal favorites. Regardless of your style preference, rest assured that something delightful awaits just a scroll away.

The best part about this playful trend is that scalloped edges pair seamlessly with the Easter table decorations you already own, so there’s no reason not to indulge in a few scalloped selects and give the trend a try!

According to Laura Cassell Fischer, Vice President of Merchandise and Product Development at over&back, one of the secrets to a festive Easter tablescape is layering. Layer your scallops with other textures and materials, such as rattan or seagrass placemats and serveware. This approach 'creates a luxurious look without being so seasonal,’ allowing you to repurpose your pieces throughout the year. Similarly, Nicole advises pairing your scalloped linens with chic rattan-wrapped utensils and plate chargers for a textural, coastal-chic feel.

And ‘don’t be afraid to mix and match,’ Laura adds. ‘Mix colors or prints with stripes,’ she recommends. 'There really are no rules anymore. Gone are the days where plates and linens all had to match. Feel free to have some fun with your tablescapes. Don’t worry — if you like it, your guests will like it!'
