Easter Decorating Ideas
Easter brings to mind thoughts of bunnies, chicks and brightly colored eggs surrounded by bright colors and fresh flowers. Baskets abound as the Easter Bunny makes his rounds, bringing chocolate and jelly beans to children (and adults) everywhere. This is the perfect time to bring the outdoors inside to wash away those winter doldrums. Easter decoration ideas don’t have to be elaborate or difficult. There are some very simple ways to celebrate the season.
One simple way to decorate for Easter is to change the hand towels in your kitchen and bath. By simply replacing your regular hand towels with bright, springtime pastels, the room will take on a festive air. Use colorful, patterned pillows on a neutral sofa or chair to bring the feel of spring inside, and toss lighter fabrics over the backs of furniture, or as table covers. By choosing sheer fabrics and linens with an open weave, your rooms will take on a light, airy feeling.
Switching from ceramic vases to crystal or glass is a very simple way to lighten the feel of a room. One idea is to use a tall glass vase with fresh Easter flowers, such as tulips, forsythia and lilies, placing it on the floor in an unused corner of a room. A great idea for large rooms or entryways with hardwood floors (www.dobsonfloors.com ), the shine of the floor will reflect the colors in the flowers and seem as if the flowers are everywhere.
Use plastic Easter eggs in baskets filled with faux grass sold at craft stores, or hang the eggs on a potted tree for an easy Easter decorating idea. Many craft stores sell very inexpensive decorative bird nests that can be placed on a table or shelf and filled with mini Easter eggs.
Easter Dinner Table
Use brightly colored tablecloths, table runners or placemats. Place a bowl or brightly colored vase in the center of the table with flowers matching the colors in the table linens, and tie it all together with a bright, coordinating ribbon. Another simple and elegant centerpiece idea is to place pillar candles in glass, silver or gold candleholders, then arrange fresh greenery, flowers or flower petals around the base.
Spring and Easter always bring thoughts of fresh flowers, so use them to your advantage when decorating for Easter. Place a clear bud vase with one cut tulip and some fresh greenery in your guest bathroom for an elegant touch. Use flowers blooming in your garden as a very inexpensive Easter decorating idea. Don’t just use typical vases, however, as decorative tins and boxes can make interesting flower arrangements. If you don’t have access to fresh flowers, group several small potted plants in a basket surrounded by artificial grass as an interesting table top display.
Easter decorating does not have to be expensive or complicated. Using bright colors, baskets and inexpensive plastic eggs are easy ways to celebrate the season and bring a touch of spring into your home. For more home decorating ideas, visit dobsonfloors blog.
