Easter dinnerware typically features spring colors, floral patterns or Easter-themed illustrations, depending on the manufacturer, but it may also come in classic white designs. Some Easter dinnerware items have shapes that resemble common Easter or spring symbols, such as Target's flower-shaped salad plates and the egg-shaped dessert plates by Williams-Sonoma.
High-end dinnerware manufacturers, such as Villeroy and Boch, Williams-Sonoma and Maxcera, often release exclusive designs for Easter. Villeroy and Boch offers an assortment of porcelain dinnerware designs for spring and Easter, including a blue and green Noah's ark motif, a pink-rose striped pattern and a colorful floral design.
In 2008, Williams-Sonoma offered porcelain dinnerware sets with pastel colors and basket-weave rims. Each plate features a vintage-style rabbit, standing atop a colored egg and directing an unseen band. The "Cabbage Bunny" Easter dinnerware set by Maxcera shows a brown bunny snacking on a green head of cabbage with black and white flowers in the background.
Major retailers, including Target and Kohl's, usually offer several dinnerware designs for Easter. As of 2015, Target's selection includes classic white dinnerware, sets with multiple pastel colors and single-colored collections in blue, green and pink. Kohl's sells several floral patterns and white dinnerware designs by brands such as Lenox and Cuisinart.
