Happy Saturday sweet friends. In case you haven’t checked your calendar, yes it is already Easter weekend and if that fact has caught you by surprise you are not alone. This month has (say it with me) flown by so if you haven’t had the chance to even ~think~ about Easter decorating, no one should blame you. If that is the case, but you still want to bring some festive touches into your home this Sunday, we have your back. These are six easy and cost-friendly hacks that we’ve done ourselves, and each one will have Easter Sunday brunch feel bright and happy in no time. Let’s get into it.
Use Dyed Eggs As A Center Piece
If you are celebrating Easter with young ones, you are probably planning on dying eggs. You are already halfway there! All you need now is a footed (or regular) large bowl, your dyed eggs, and voila you have a centerpiece that is colorful, affordable, and festive.
Forage For Spring Flowers
Spring, as they say, has sprung. Foraging for flowers and branches is an everyday styling trick that we here at EHD will do any chance we can. It saves so much money, is good for the environment, and it makes for beautiful, rustic flower arrangements. We love all types of wildflowers, but if you have cherry blossoms or daffodils near you, talk about the perfect Easter flower arrangement.
Spray Paint Branches To Make An Easter Egg Tree
Emily successfully did this craft with her kids for the past two years (sorry no pics). All this entails is a few branches from outside, white paint or spray paint, a pretty vase, plastic or paper eggs, and some string. If you don’t have any plastic eggs, you can cut egg shapes from construction paper or even a paper plate. Or, nix the eggs altogether and hang little pom–poms. This is just a fun, easy-to-do DIY that can act as a pretty amazing centerpiece too.
Use Greenery For Your Tablescape
Name cards add a special touch of thoughtfulness to any gathering and this one is SO simple to DIY. We used dried flowers from Target, a real leaf, the name written with white sharpie, and a piece of twine to tie it all together. It’s a DIY even I could do. On the right, you’ll find a sweet little DIY that Emily did all the way back in 2014 (!!). All you need is a napkin, gold wire, and a rosemary sprig. It’s so easy, so chic, and will elevate any tablescape.
Grab Some Pink (Or Pastel Colored) Taper Candles
If you are really in a pinch and just want a pop of color, almost any craft store will have taper candles, and a few pink ones (or other cute pastel colors) sprinkled throughout will feel festive and intentional. Add this to your tablescape with a few spring flower arrangements and you are in business.
Add A Dose Of Gingham
When in doubt, go with pastel gingham. It’s a pattern that screams spring and is very playful. If you don’t have a pastel gingham tablecloth lying around, do not sound the alarm just yet. You can replace the full table cloth with a fabric square and angle it on your table so covers most of the table, but still shows some of the pretty wood underneath.
And there you have it. Hopefully, this post helped you find some fun, low-maintenance Easter decorating ideas if that’s what you are looking for. Have a great weekend everyone (speaking of the weekend, please enjoy my favorite video clip). xx
