Decorating for Spring always makes me so happy - give me all the pastel colors, floral patterns and gingham! Since we will most likely be celebrating Easter in quarantine this year, I wanted to make sure our home was “egg-stra” festive.
One of my favorite ways to decorate for Easter is using the colorful plastic eggs. This year I found sparkly eggs at Walmart and I used them to fill the bottom of my vase for a floral arrangement.
Another favorite diy that adds a special touch is painting faux eggs that can be brought out year after year. I find these over sized craft eggs at Michael’s, and they are perfect to paint or mod podge. My toddlers loved painting their own too, if you’re craving a little mess. I painted mine light pink and added a monogram with palm leaves. If you aren’t comfortable painting a monogram, you could use a sticker or make one in vinyl with a cricut machine.
Obviously, PILLOWS. My bunny pillows are one of my favorite designs. I have them in a couple color ways, but there is something about yellow that screams Spring, so that’s what we have here. Blue plaid bunnies, orchids in a giant clamshell, a green bamboo pagoda mirror.. I mean this motif is good enough to copy..but don’t ;) Don’t forget the table and don’t be afraid to mix patterns (my favorite thing to do!) If you are hesitant to try mixing patterns, here’s a tip- start by sticking with the same color family. For instance, a blue floral pattern mixed with a blue (or green) plaid pattern. Blue and green are both cool colors and are in the same color family.
I picked up these buffalo check ceramic egg shaped plates at Michael’s and paired them with my Kathleen Collection placemats and napkins. When I went to set the table, I couldn’t find napkin rings to match, so I used decorative tassels. Don’t be afraid to improvise, have some pretty ribbon on hand? Use it! That would be another easy way to mix in a new pattern to the table scape.
