Beyond the Bunny: Creative Easter Decor
Think outside of the box to ensure your Easter brunch stands out this year. We’ve put together four of our favorite décor pieces to help you along the way!
Rich in color, carrots are the perfect tool for creating an incredible centerpiece for your brunch table. This idea can be super simple or extravagant depending on the look you want. To create it, you’ll need the following:
Glass Vase, Bottle or Hurricane
Medium and Small Size Flowers of Your Choice (color selection will depend on your event’s color palette)
Carrots (with or without the tops, depending on your look)
Additional Greenery of Your Choice
That’s it! You can add or take away as much as you like to construct a unique piece. Check out our inspiration below:
Pastels, Eggs, Flowers…OH MY!
Easter eggs shouldn’t be reserved for tacky tables and children. They can be the staple for your whole theme. You can find pre-dyed eggs or, if you are feeling adventurous, dye your own! This allows you to get the ideal matching colors. You can even try ombre-dying your eggs. The possibilities are truly endless. To get started you’ll need:
Eggs (either pre-made, white or hard boiled)
Easter Eggs Dye Kit (if you want to make your own!)
Display Piece of Your Choice
Matching Floral of Your Choice
This idea will have your guests oohing and ahhing over your elegant eggs. Here are a few we love:
Miles of Garland
Let’s be honest, we can always find use for a good garland. This DIY project is great to include the kids and looks great inside or outside to add a pop of fun! You most likely have the goods to make a garland in your craft box, but here are some essentials you might want to try:
Twine or Small Ribbon
Check out a couple of these examples to figure out where you can start:
The Egg Tree
This is another project that the kids can help with! Start by gathering long twigs and branches from the back yard. Spray paint them to match your colors and tuck them in to a vintage bucket or tall glass vase. Then tie small ribbons and attach them to your eggs. Hang your tiny art pieces from the branch and voilà! You’ll have a tall, full piece that can serve as a focal point for you table. A few things you’ll need:
Display Piece of Your Choice (we suggest a metal pitcher or bucket or a tall glass vase)
Ribbon or Twine
Paint, Metallic Sharpies, Glitter, Etc.
You can even have guests decorate their own egg and hang it on the tree before they go! Here are some trees that are sure to impress:
We hope that these ideas have inspired you to go beyond the mundane decor this Easter holiday. Be prepared to wow your guests with your modern take on simple decorations.
