Transform your home this Easter with some simple hacks



We all love dressing our homes for Christmas, forgetting all about Easter but these easy decorating ideas here prove that this first major holiday of the year can be every bit as special. Bring some of the sunshine and energy of the season into your home with these easy hacks. 

If you’re entertaining for the whole family this Easter, then you’ll want to create the perfect ambience that everyone can enjoy. You can achieve traditional Easter decor in your home with themed tableware, homemade accessories and beautiful displays.

The best place to start your decor is with the table setting. Choose vintage-style touches, such as china with faded floral designs and vintage glassware. Build a pretty display of flowers to create a striking centerpiece that will wow your guests.
Add on traditional Easter extras such as painted eggs in teacups, bowls or even piled high in jars. Use your regular homeware to make a unique Easter display. A cake stand is the perfect place to display ornamental birds, bunnies or homemade gifts. Fill bell jars and lanterns with eggs and flowers and place home-made decor on tables and chests. Flowers in eggcups, or teacups filled with eggs and pretty displays of blossom and tulips will finish off your eggstra special Easter theme.


Decorate with eggs
Easter isn’t complete without Easter eggs, but this simple and elegant table display – suitable for a subtle dining room centerpiece or a seasonal accent elsewhere in the house, is totally design friendly and sugar-free to boot.

Keep your table relaxed and natural
There are so many ways you can dress a tabletop for Easter but this modern country look is pure pared-back elegance. Stepping the Easter theme up a notch, but without going overboard with bunnies, chicken and turkeys, we’d suggest you dress the table in a similar way to the mood you want to feel over Easter, informal yet stylish, obviously. Bring the food and the foliage to the fore with a simple monochrome table scheme.


Put together stylish place settings
Add a special touch to place settings with personalised name cards. Punch two holes in a plain white card with each guest’s name handwritten in calligraphy upon it, and thread a fresh flower’s stem through for a pretty, welcome to the dining table. Warm-toned cutlery brings an extra dimension to the cool-coloured scheme, providing a lovely optimistic glow for the new season, or just that particular meal.

Fill the house with flowers
Mealtimes needn’t be the end of this seasonal decorative journey; you can extend the florals throughout the house without going all-out flower power. Celebrate with a riot of spring colours
Could an Easter buffet spread be any more joyful or beautiful? With fresh blues, verdant greens, sunshine yellows and hot pink, a dining room’s rainbow palette of spring colours can’t help but make you and your guests smile.

Spell it out
Buy a personalisable letter banner and you can create your own Easter message to hang in a hallway, across a door or the front of your house. A visit to any big supermarket or major market should provide you with this kind of banner to add a unique flavour to your celebrations.
