You Can Have Gorgeous Easter Decor! In 8 Easy Steps
I love the spring and I love all of the colours that shower us during Easter. Today’s post is all about decorating your home and table for Easter sunday. I have never been one to decorate for easter but with these colour schemes I might have to start. It’s time to embrace your polka dot, pastel and chintzy side by inviting spring into your home.
1. Create an interesting flower arrangement in pretty pastel shades.
I absolutely love the decorative table styling and party styling done by Susannah Olivera of Citrus and orange blog, unfortunately Susannah doesn’t update her blog too often (I miss you!) but we are very lucky to have so many gorgeous images to drool over.
2. Decorate your Easter table by layering crockery sets to create a complimentary colour theme.
Contrast coloured tableware with fresh white linen, or use coloured napkins with plain china. Susannah has done it beautifully and added a little decorative touch with a birds nest and feather bird decoration that you can purchase at any craft store or florist supply store.
3. Add decorative pieces around the rooms, on mantles, tops of pianos, bookcases or shelves.
These artificial hyacinths are laid across a pretty little cupcake stand and pastel honeycomb balls in a small size can add beautiful contrasting texture.
4. Fill little candy dishes wish sugared almonds and place around your home.
Get out all of your fancy candy dishes, saucers and tea light holders (you can fill those with pretty coloured sweets/candy too).
5. Use tissue paper decorations, vases and complimenting colours for straws and napkins that can be used on the dining table.
6. This is the little decoration that could be seen on the plate in the image at the top of the post.
You can source vintage, pastel gift wrap, cut into 12″ squares or 12″x16″ rectangles to create custom placemats or even a table runner.
7. Decorate your Easter table with a riot of wildflowers in soft pastel colors and create a decorative centerpiece using complimentary pastel shades.
8. Make little gifts for your guests; like candy bars.
Print out some free printable polka dot patterns or custom candy wrappers and re-wrap chocolate bars. Alternatively, you can find small boxes and them with chocolates or pastel candies to make a pretty display and ideal gift for your guests.
You can also give out little decorative easter egg-shaped tins filled with pretty sweets!
