From Elegant to DIY: 5 Simple Ways to Update Your Easter Décor
With Spring right around the corner, it’s time to spruce up your home with Easter décor to match the colors and symbols of the season. Whether you’re looking to turn your whole house into a pastel paradise or just decorate one room for a festive Zoom background on Easter Sunday, these tips will help you easily incorporate the holiday into your design decisions. The best part? It’s easy to mix elegant, simple, and whimsical decorating at this time of year; strategically placing a bunny or two can delight the younger crowd without overwhelming your aesthetic. So feel free to design playfully!
Easy Linen Updates
One of the easiest ways to update your seasonal Easter décor is by changing out your linens and pillows around the house. For inexpensive pillow updates, buy covers rather than entirely new pillows – you can easily store the folded covers, as well, so you don’t need room in the closet for bulky pillows every season. Hand towels in the kitchen and bathroom, as well as throw blankets around the house, can also reflect your Easter color scheme.
For a sophisticated and neutral look, choose pastels that still complement your base décor. Peach and pink go well with light-colored furniture, while green, blue, and cream work well with darker tones. For something more whimsical, opt for cute bunnies, eggs, or springtime motifs.
Wreaths – Both Outside and In!
Wreaths are a great option for basic seasonal Easter décor that can be updated and changed as needed. A simple, green wreath for your front door can be decorated with eggs and bunnies at Easter and then updated with flowers for the rest of spring. For a whimsical design, opt for a bunny-shaped wreath that will give you spring color along with iconic Easter imagery.
For a unified look throughout your home, add smaller versions of your front door wreath around the house. Mirrors and windows make great backdrops for a wreath, and hanging one as part of your Zoom background can add instant color to the call. Consider using small wreaths on doorknobs as well! If you’d like to DIY a small or large wreath, these ideas will offer plenty of inspiration – from speckled eggs to seed packets and watering cans!
Garlands are an easy way to make a big impact in a room; rather than piecing together several different decorations, a garland can cover an entire mantle or wall for a bold statement. Consider placing a garland in your main living area as well as smaller styles at the top of bathroom mirrors or prominent windows. If you’re planning to host/attend an Easter Zoom party, then strategically put a garland out in full display for your background decoration. A more neutral-themed garland can feature a spring-green vine with pastel flowers; for something with a lot of pop, consider adding glittered eggs to the mix! If you’d like to DIY one or more garlands for your home, take a look at this variety of options – everything from tassels and carrots to plastic eggs!
Whether your Easter gathering is an intimate family affair or one broadcast across Zoom screens nationwide, your tablescape can reflect a sophisticated and/or whimsical design to celebrate the season. If you don’t want to go all out, choose a neutral pastel or cream tablecloth and a decorative runner. Arrange three candles of various sizes in the center, along with a few sprigs of greenery.
For something bolder, top a pastel runner with a green garland and bird nests and eggs spotted throughout along with pastel-colored candles at intervals; as place settings, use these wood chargers and gold flatware to bring a nice mix of elegant and rustic vibes. A statement centerpiece (try either a birdcage filled with flowers or a fun arrangement of Easter candies in glass jars displayed on a cake stand) will tie everything together!
Small Touches – A Little Goes a Long Way
Sometimes we forget that decorating doesn’t have to mean big, statement pieces. In fact, the details around your home often do the most to create a unified décor scheme! Try changing out your bathroom hand soap dispenser for an elegant pastel color and rotating any candles you have displayed to be seasonal colors and scents.
For a DIY small-touch project, try using Easter stencils and paint/spray paint the designs on the back of cardboard from an empty cereal/cracker box. Then cut the cardboard down to size and put it into inexpensive dollar-store frames around the house; you can also paint the frames various colors to match!
No matter how simple or bold your decorating choices, the Easter season will add some much-needed color and vibrance to your home!
