Spring, in all its beauty, is one of the central themes of Easter. The pastel color palette, the flowers, and the sweet candy all create the feeling of “spring” that everyone loves. Bring this inside by creating fresh flower arrangements full of the colors of spring. You can spruce up your mantle with individual flowers in wine bottles covered in fabric that spell out Easter, or place short stemmed flowers in small teapots that make a great centerpiece for your table. You can also mix flowers and vegetables together. That’s right! You can place carrots or butter lettuce around a cluster of roses or lavender that would add a splash of color to your kitchen. You can also add painted or dyed eggs in a vase full of long stemmed lilies.
Hang it on your door
Not only are flowers colorful and festive for Easter, you can also use them to create and decorate a vibrant Easter wreath with small eggs, birds, and other miniature ornaments. You can also use vine in the shape of a bunny with real painted eggs or fake ones (they come in lots of colors and designs) that you can hang outside your door or over your mantle. It’s a simple and easy way to add color and a touch of Easter to your home.
Easter Eggs Aren’t Just for Kids
There are lots of ways that you can decorate with Easter eggs that will really make your home more festive. When you dye eggs in preparation for Easter Sunday, you can set aside a few where you can place small succulents or air plants in eggshells. You can also place some decorative eggs in a small basket or bowl for a centerpiece display. If you are having brunch or a dinner party with family and friends, you can also take some dyed or painted eggs and write each person’s name on them as a name card for the table setting. It’s a simple and lovely personal touch that your guests will love. You can also create a wall display of small quail eggs in it’s original color or in bright colors.
