Don’t you think it feels a bit unbelievable that it’s nearly Easter again? The past year has been very strange, to say the least. Lots of people have had to get used to meeting virtually and twisting their traditions to suit the new normal. If you’re looking to make Easter extra special this year and put the effort into decorating your home, we’ve put together a list of our favourite ideas to enable you and your friends and family to celebrate together.
Easter Eggs have become a staple of the holiday, so it’s only right they become part of your decorations. There are lots of ways you can use them. If you’ve got little ones, you could spend an afternoon decorating eggs. You could go down the traditional route and paint hard-boiled eggs, or attempt creating your very own chocolate moulds. If your baking skills aren’t ready for the latter, you can get Easter Eggs delivered and still enjoy a sweet treat.
Even though you won’t get to have people in your home this Easter, you could have a family dinner together over a video call. You can all put the effort into your table settings to make it feel more special. There are lots of Easter table decorating styles you can choose from. Whether you want to have a single, statement, centrepiece or go all out with your crafts – just make sure you’ve got room for a laptop so your loved ones can join you, online.
Speaking of crafts, there are so many possibilities out there. Again, if you’ve got children, this is a great activity you can get them involved in. You don’t have to buy decorations, you can get inspired by everyday household objects. From egg box chicks to toilet roll bunnies – there are plenty of Easter crafts to choose from. You could even go the extra mile and create your very own Easter tree or an Easter wreath to hang on your front door. Use this time to get creative, and most importantly, have fun.
Flowers go hand in hand with this time of year, so be sure to add some floral touches to your decorations. Easter decorations allow you to bring together whimsy and wild all at once. Think daffodils, crocus, and tulips for bringing the spring season into your home. For something that little bit different, you could display them in teacups or other quirky vessels. You could also use flowers as part of your table decorations for the family dinner.
Even though your celebrations might be a little bit different, it’s still a great time to explore your creative side and decorate your home. Your family can appreciate the effort, even from a computer screen. What are you doing for Easter this year?
