I love decorating for every season – Easter Decorating is one of my favorites though. When my kids were little we had little bowls of Easter candy sitting around to munch on, plastic eggs hanging from trees, and bunny signs in the yard. I am a more ‘sophisticated’ decorator now that they are all gone, so I went through all my Easter decorations and picked out my favorites. That makes it so much easier to decorate and creates less clutter.
Create Staging Areas –
When we built our house I made sure that I had 3 ‘staging’ areas for decorations. One is in the foyer. One is in the living room, behind the sofa. One is in my back hall area. This way I have decorations where I most travel through the house so I can always see them. And they make me so happy.
Easter decorating is really easy to do because you really don’t need that many things. First – Find an area where you can display a few items. (I usually have to remove things to make room for the seasonal.) Group a few things together. Step back, I bet it looks great!
Most of my Easter Decorations came from Pottery Barn. I used to work there and would scour the shelves for cute and fun stuff. (not too hard to find cute and fun stuff at Pottery Barn). The large easter eggs have clear string lights in them. I used paper shred for the ‘grass’. (I hate regular Easter grass – I seem to be finding it at Christmas!). I added sparkle eggs. Back in the day, when my kids were home, I would have added candy eggs. They would be totally gone way before Easter. (the little sneaks :))
So, how can you make your Easter Decorating Easy? Find a table and grab a few –
Grass or paper shred
Little dishes for candy
Eggs – glass, plastic, glitter or the candy ones!
One thing I like to do is put grass or paper shred around the items – gives them a more cohesive look. See the cabinet in my foyer.
Head on over to Pottery Barn – I bet they have the Easter Decorations on sale now. They also have the cutest bunny plates – I love mine.
