Easter Tips for Your Home
Easter Tips for Your Home
With Easter just around the corner it’s time to start looking at activities to do and ways to decorate your home. Whether you’re one to go the whole nine yards or you would just like to put up a few decorations, here are some great ideas to start you off.
Egg decorating is something that we used to do years ago and it can be a whole family affair. There are heaps of different ways to decorate these days. My favourite way is to use shaving cream and food colouring. You don’t have to be too artistic, which is good, and when finished the eggs come out looking like little galaxies. Better Homes and Gardens have a great how-to guide on their website with step-by-step instructions and a DIY video. These eggs are super simple and easy to make for most age groups.
Once the eggs are done you can hide them throughout your home or garden for the kids to find or simply eat them!
When it comes to decorating your home to get into the Easter festivities (minus chocolate, for now) always pick a theme. There are a heap of themes to choose from these days from carrots to chickens, or bunnies to chocolate. If you don’t have enough space through the home to drop Easter decorations, pick a space and make that your focal point for decorations. A hallway table or small desk laid out with Easter cheer can make a great display rather than filling your whole house with decorations, if you like the minimalist touch.
Once you have your theme, start to look at building on it. For example, if you picked Easter eggs as your theme, what goes with eggs? Chickens I guess would be the simple answer. From here you can create farmhouse scenes with flower pots and hutches with hidden eggs in them. IF you want to go for the full minimalist look – try an Easter wreath on your front door. Simple, understated and still gives off Easter vibes. You can even reuse your Christmas wreath and just add the Easter touches, fake eggs, baby chicks, carrots you name it. Also look at swapping over the green or red Christmas ribbons on your wreath to a blue or yellow ribbon for that real Easter look.
If you have small children and a garden to use, you could look are re-creating a Peter Rabbit look in the backyard, which will be a little wonderland for them to explore while looking for hidden eggs. Jules Buono has some amazing ideas and places to search for decorations on the blog The Best Peter Rabbit Décor for Home and Parties, you can find it here.
So if you want to deck out your home from floor to ceiling or you would rather just put out a few decorations to mark the occasions, I hope these tips have been helpful for you to get started. If at the end of the day you’re more like me and are just in it for the chocolate 😀 that’s totally fine too, feel free to pass these ideas on to someone else.
