The calendar says it’s officially spring. Is it spring weather where you live? We are headed to South Carolina for college visits and to watch our older son play in a college tennis tournament! #gotommies So before we leave I wanted to get a few Easter decorations up because we host Easter dinner this year.
How to add Easter decor
My children are teenagers now and although I (I mean the Easter bunny) brings Easter baskets (bags), my decor has grown up too. Knowing we had spring break plans, I wanted to keep the Easter decor simple.
And, instead of using the traditional, plastic grass I used everyday greenery.
The Easter eggs pop against the greenery and when the chocolate eggs have been inhaled, the greenery stays. And, the best part of using everyday greenery, there is no cling wrap strength, faux grass stuck to the carpet and rugs.
Once I figured out the (faux) grass situation, I decided I needed faux eggs. A few years ago, when the Easter egg hunts were replaced with brunch after mass, I donated bags of plastic eggs.
I found the best selection and prices at Hobby Lobby. Who knew? The checkout line is maddening, but the selections are amazing. I guess the finds are worth the wait.#snarky
I found a fun egg garland at Marshalls. For the past week, it was sitting in my favorite wood crate because I couldn’t figure out what to do with it. But I love the speckled eggs.
I used a little-shredded “grass” for this cute little bunny I found at Marshall’s. I added a pink ribbon to give her a cute outfit. Hmm…I think I might switch the shredded paper for greenery.
I shared these cute bunny frame prints. They are so cute! And, add fun Easter decor that extends into spring. And, these framed bunny prints are mobile. I move them around every other day. Sounds like a bunny on the shelf idea.
And, here’s a trick to bulk up my centerpieces, wreaths and Easter eggs. You might have caught it in some of the photos. I add grapevine to everything; nests, tablescapes and wreaths. I keep a stash of grapevine wreaths and sections of grapevine for all my staging tricks!
