Welcome to my Easter Decor Home Tour! Last year was the first time I decorated the house for Easter and this year I’ve added a few bits to my collection. I decided, why limit Christmas to the only time I make the house look pretty? We do tend to go all out at Christmas with the house resembling Santa’s Grotto by the time I’m finished and I have a funny feeling it won’t be long before we start looking like the Easter Bunny’s warren at this time of year!
Spring decor is just so pretty though! All the pastel colours, flowers and decorated eggs – it is completely the opposite of the deep reds and greens of traditional Christmas decor and it makes the home feel fresh and ready for Spring. The weather here has been fantastic this last week and we’ve been able to have windows and doors open letting the fresh air flood through the house. Unfortunately with sunshine comes the need for a Spring clean as it shows up every speck of dust and my very grubby windows!
I love this Easter wreath in our hallway. It gives such a wonderful welcome to our home with it’s beautiful pink pastel speckled eggs. I bought this at Homesense but you can buy similar here. My HOME cushion is from Dunelm Mill and usually belongs on my spare bed, but I moved it to the hallway and think it looks great there!
In my opinion, the key to successful holiday decor is in the small details! I got this bunny doormat from Aldi. I do part of my weekly food shop in Aldi and I don’t think I’ve ever come out of the shop without something I didn’t plan to buy! They have such brilliantly unusual stuff at great value and items just seem to jump into the trolley whether I need them or not!
At Christmas I decorated our mantle with garlands and fairy lights and it looked so pretty – it was the main reason I wanted a fireplace in our living room! These Easter decorations look so cute and the colours are fresh and bright. The Happy Easter garland and wooden sign are both from Homesense. The wooden daffodil, pink bunny and chicken are all from dot com gift shop. I love this store and often log on and buy their sale stock, it is amazing value. Check out their current Easter stock here.
Like the Christmas tree, the Easter tree is a must at this time of year! We make a special outing to search the local woods for just the right fallen branches to create this masterpiece. I spray painted the branches white and then organised them in a large jar (a vase would do just as well, but…well…everything looks better in a jar ;-)!). The hanging decorations are all from dot com gift shop and the large paper eggs in the bowl are from Ikea. These come apart and can be filled with treasures so we will definitely be using these as part of our Easter Egg Hunt this year.
This cosy nook is one of my favourite places when I get the odd 5 minutes to sit and put my feet up. We hadn’t planned on buying an arm chair for the living room but Mr C insisted that we needed a comfy chair and so we ordered this one. It looks out over our garden and really is a great chillout spot! The little cage of eggs on the side table came from Homesense (oh how I love that place).
It’s been a lot of fun decorating our home for Easter. Do you decorate your home in the Spring or for Easter? I’m starting to plan what decorate with next…it’s a long time until Halloween!! I’m currently putting together some Spring printables and can’t wait to share these with you!
Enjoy the rest of the fantastic weather!
