Easter is around the corner, and the spring collections have been revealed! There are so many beautiful color palettes to celebrate this time of year, and Easter gives us a chance to enjoy the wonder of spring while spending time with the people we care about. Design lovers will be happy to know that there’s no shortage of interesting seasonal decor this year. From on-trend dried florals to a range of unique DIY projects, ’tis the season for putting your Easter decor on display.
Setting the Stage
When it comes to creating a memorable Easter Sunday for the people you care about, there’s a range of decor possibilities for evoking a festive mood. This table setting from Sugar & Cloth features the brand’s own Entertaining & Parties collection, available through Amazon. From pastel pink scalloped serving trays to modern cupcake stands, there are many fun accents for design lovers to enjoy while setting the Easter table. Check out all the details on how this one came together here.
Yarn is a major design tool in today’s world of decor. From wall hangings to pom poms, texture is everywhere you look. This yarn-wrapped egg from Spritz (available at Target) is perfect for a spring tabletop, and its soft hues are varied enough to blend with a range of palettes:
For more pastel goodness from Spritz, this Easter egg wreath is complete with a gradient of soft colors, plus subtle designs that add a dash of whimsy. Some eggs have a glittery coating for extra sparkle, and felt leaves sprinkled throughout the design add a green touch that gives a true nod to spring. Perfect for any door or window in your home!
Hearth & Hand’s version of an Easter basket involves a metal frame with a touch of wood on the handle. Fill with paper shred and wooden eggs, and you have a minimalist yet charming take on spring’s biggest holiday. Since this basket isn’t Easter-specific, it can be used for storage and decoration long after your Sunday celebration comes and goes.
A artful rabbit can decorate the entrance to your front door with the help of Anthropologie’s Bunny Doormat, made from coir and coconut fiber. With a look that’s perfect for those who love boho chic design (or eclectic style in general), this doormat is as stylish as it is sturdy:
Dried florals have become such a popular option for design lovers, they’re frequently used by top florists for special events such as weddings. The best part: they won’t wilt! Since more and more design lovers are embracing dried flowers, it makes sense that they would be a big part of this year’s spring decor offerings. Terrain is heavily featuring them in their spring collection, and we’re loving the look. Note how well these dried tropical plants pair with earthy baskets. The look is perfect for spring holidays such as Easter, yet you can continue to enjoy the plants once the day has come and gone.
If you’re feeling crafty, consider grouping dried flowers in artistic arrangements with the help of floral wire. Adhere them to furnishings and other surfaces that are in need of embellishment. Details at Terrain. More DIY fun will follow in the next section.
Terrain also offers an abundance of fresh flowers, and it’s hard to go wrong with flowering branches. The salmon color of these beautiful quince branches instantly channels brighter days ahead, and the stems are particularly fetching when placed in a favorite vase. No embellishment necessary!
