Easter Decorations

Unlike holidays such as Christmas, Halloween and Valentine’s Day, Easter does not have many traditional decorations. Besides the obvious eggs, rabbits and crosses if you are religious, there aren’t many symbols that are associated with the holiday. When decorating for Easter a good place to start is with items that embody spring, such as florals and pastels, because of the holiday’s association with this season. Here are some decorations for your home that are perfect for Easter and spring.

Eggs are the most “traditional” Easter decoration. We dye eggs leading up to the holiday and hide plastic ones filled with candy for kids to find. In addition to these two types, there are a wide variety of decorative eggs available for your home. These eggs may feature intricate designs or hold a message, like the ones above. Arrange these eggs with flowers for a perfect Easter and springtime display.

Get the Look: Putting together a Vintage Tea

Whether inspired by a fabulous antique find or British television, here are a few tips on how to create your very own vintage tea.

The Essentials:

These are the items that separate a true vintage styled tea from just a simple tea.

Begin with teapots- Porcelain or silver, teapots add instant class and sophistication. If your teapot is not large enough to hold tea for all of your guests, use multiple smaller teapots. For a little something extra, have several teas and hang a handmade tag off of each teapot handle.

Teacups and saucers are a must- A simple setting of all white teacups and saucers will allow for patterned teapots, fancy floral arrangements and scrumptious foods to truly stand out, while patterned pieces will add up to an eclectically vintage vibe.

Wonderful Wire Decor

Wire no longer needs to be limited to the coop, so bring this rustic detail inside for creative organization and rustic appeal.

Organize

Baskets are a staple in many rooms, but this doesn’t mean they all have to be alike. Kick up your organizational décor by opting for wire baskets alongside their more traditional straw counterparts.

Smaller wire bins can be used in offices for paperwork. Use open shelving to your advantage and mix wire bins with sleek photo boxes or file bins for contrast that will make your rustic treasures stand out.

Taller bins, like our wire nesting baskets, are ideal spots for corralling difficult to store rolls of gift wrap. These are also well-styled trash containers, an ideal spot to drop your latest knitting project or organize folded fabrics for a quilt.
