Easter home decorating ideas

Easter is the time where spring seems to start in earnest. After a long winter, decorating your home for the holiday is a great way to incorporate some pretty spring colors and themes. Whether you add some Easter touches to your decor or go all out by decorating your entire home for the season, the trend to bring out the bunnies and eggs is here to stay.

The primary accessory that is a must-have for Easter is a fabulous wreath. Hang it on a door or to accent a wall in your home. Spring flowers like hydrangeas, lilies, and roses are great florals for a wreath, or you can go with the pastel eggs and bunnies. For a bit of whimsy, make one out of Peeps, the brightly colored marshmallow bunnies and chicks. Buy one already created or make your own with plastic eggs and a grapevine wreath.

Another popular accessory for Easter decor is a tree. Similar to a Christmas tree, the Easter tree often has pastel eggs dangling from its bare branches. You can create a more dramatic look with jeweled eggs, too. Some decorators are repurposing small and even large Christmas trees and decorating them with pastel eggs and garlands.

Brighten up your living room with bunny throw pillows on your sofa or in a chair. Sweet bunnies and eggs are quintessential Easter decorations. If you prefer to focus more on the religious significance of the holiday, choose classic Christian images, including lambs, the cross with a crown of thorns or lilies.

More and more holiday lovers are decorating their guest bedrooms or even the master suite with bedding, rugs, and wall art that celebrates the season. If you want to try the theme without being too committed, get a bunny or chick throw for the bottom of your bed. Or choose some pretty Easter egg throw pillows to coordinate with your current bedding.

For those who are all in, great comforters, duvet covers, pillow shams and more are available in cool designs. Look for great pastel prints or the traditional bunny and egg design. Bedroom decor is also a great place to display wall art to inspire you in your faith, so consider a great cross gallery wrap or framed poster in your prayer and meditation space.

The dining area is also a place to go wild with the Easter theme. Table runners and centerpieces are a must for your family dinner. If small children are coming, the rabbit and egg theme is appropriate, but if your family has moved past the Easter bunny stage, go a little more sophisticated with moss rabbits and hand-painted eggs in pretty prints.

Consider putting an Easter-themed rug under your dining table. Choose a field of gorgeous yellow daffodils or a bevy of bunnies. A rug is an unexpected touch in holiday decor and is certain to draw some “oohs” and “ahs” from your guests.

Celebrate spring with Easter decor. It’s appropriate from any time after Valentine’s Day until the end of April, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy it!
