Easter Sunday is fast approaching and it’s easy to stress out with all the preparations we need to accomplish by the weekend. With all our friends and family making their way into our humble abodes, there’s no reason why we should put off decorating our homes for Easter! Here, we’ve rounded our top tips to get your home ready for the Easter festivities.
Paint it Pastel
Start with the basics – spell it out in pastel. Hang Easter bunting above the buffet to make a cheerful focal point in the dining room. It makes a playful backdrop for all the group photos and goes well with all the pretty pastel treats on the table. Super simple to make, yet amazingly fun!
Breathe in some color into your home by decorating your mantelpiece with a lovely pastel painting. Add a refreshing piece like this blush blue bunny to bring out a peaceful atmosphere and a youthful vibe that the little ones will love to look at. Bonus points if you can adorn your mantelpiece with other Easter themed ornaments!
Freshen Up with Florals
Easter is the season of growth, and what better way to reflect that in your home than by adorning your mantelpiece with the brightest flowers. Yellow blooms are a wonderful option against a minimal backdrop. Be it daffodils, tulips, or peonies, these floral beauties will keep your home feeling fresh for the season.
Going for rustic themed decor? Place your best floral picks inside clear bottles and secure them together with a wooden tray. They add vibrancy next to antique inspired bird cages and natural elements such as cotton tree branches.
There’s plenty of opportunity to think outside the box this Easter and we’re inspired by this elegant falling flowers spring sign by Country Design Style. Incorporate florals into your decor by creating a piece that will remain timeless even after Easter. Paint over those flowers with your choice of color, set it against a wooden canvas and voila, an elegant masterpiece for the fireplace.
Create an Easter Vignette
Make good use of the corners of your homes by creating your own Easter vignette. Choose a word that inspires you and set it against a table filled with Easter goodies to bring in that spirit of abundance. You can even make your own wreath like Fynes Design’s stunning forsythia wreath.
There’s more to living room decor than designing the mantelpiece which is why we love this carrot vignette. No need for real carrots because decorative ones work just as well. Place them in a bucket on top of a red vintage coffee table and add a whole new dimension to your Easter decor.
It’s time to bring out the bar carts from storage because Easter is all about entertaining guests. There’s plenty of space for drinks and decor so add in your favorite topiaries for an instant vignette. You can even place a large clock reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland for a gorgeous effect.
Hang it High
Don’t be afraid to step away from the living room because walls and doors can use some decorating too. Place a chalkboard on the kitchen door to keep you on top of your To Do list as you prepare for a sumptuous Easter brunch. Pair it up with adorable bunny-shaped bunting and a bunny printed tea towel for an even warmer vibe.
Who said Easter eggs were just meant to be hidden? Macrame hanging planters are a beautiful way to display tiny plants and succulents especially when they’re potted in painted egg shells. Hang them high or low, and create a cascade of greenery that will surely impress your guests.
