How to Decorate for Easter & Style Eggs

Is anyone else counting down the days till Spring? We’re ready to shake off all the winter doldrums and embrace some warmer weather! And of course, we can’t wait to break out our little chicks, bunnies, and pastel eggs for Easter.

Yes, Easter decor isn’t only for the little ones counting down the days ‘til their big Easter egg hunt. The secret lies in coordinating the details and incorporating Easter items with your personal style.

Here’s a look at what’s inside our themed Easter boxes this year:

How to Elevate Your Easter Table

If you’re looking for a simple way to elevate your dining room or kitchen table, think about ways to reflect the design of your garden (or your dream garden). Bring the freshness of spring inside with a dough bowl tablescape that incorporates color, greenery, and flowers.

Start with a Bowl

Large bowls offer endless opportunities to change out your decor for the seasons. Bright, cheerful spring items will add a festive touch to your Easter home decor.

Incorporate Green Moss

Try lining a dough bowl with faux green moss[1]  for a fresh, seasonal centerpiece and fill it with fun Easter items, like bunnies, eggs, or carrots. If you’re going for a more sophisticated look, switch out the bunnies for a single colored moss arrangement.

Decorate with Only One Item

Don’t have much to work with? Don’t worry about it! Whether your style is farmhouse or boho, a single element can make a significant impact. For example, see how you can achieve a simple, bold statement by filling a bowl with just one element, like a bundle of carrots.

Now that you have some inspiration, take a look at these simple steps to get started with crafting the perfect Easter centerpiece.

How to Build an Easter Centerpiece

  1. Choose your focal point, which should be something you want to build your centerpiece around.
  2. Select traditional elements such as bunnies or chicks for Easter or more subtle spring designs, like eggs or flowers.
  3. Pick your greenery or filler. This could be small flowers, moss, ferns, or any other type of pretty material you want to use to fill most of the space in the bowl.
  4. Layer in other interesting objects that are smaller than your focal attraction but large enough to add interest and color. A small bird’s nest with colorful eggs, some sprigs of flowers, or small topiaries would work well.

If you don’t want to use a dough bowl or other large container, you can still have a stunning centerpiece using a tray or wooden board as your base. This option works particularly well if you’re using it on an island or a buffet instead of a table. It’s an easy look to scale up or down, depending on the size of your surface. You can even use a cutting board or cheese board you already have on hand.

Incorporate Candles

Candles make a beautiful addition to a flat centerpiece. Start by arranging your candles and any other large pieces. Several larger bunnies would look great here as well. Next, put some potted plants around the board. Consider using one small pot with Lily of the Valley for a smaller board. Its beautiful, delicate flowers will stand out in a smaller setting.

Choosing the Right Flowers

If you’re using a big board, you may want to go with larger, sturdier spring flowers such as tulips or daffodils. To finish your board, fill in any empty spots with eggs of different sizes. You can use egg shapes made from moss or other neutral materials. To add variety, enclose some of the filler material underneath a small decorative cloche.

Create Easter Egg Garland

Another fun way to bring Easter decor to your table is to create Easter egg garland with beads. Wooden beads bring a neutral color to a garland made from natural colored eggs. You can make one by drilling holes at each end of white or tan plastic eggs and then stringing them in a pattern with the wooden beads. Substituting colored eggs and fun, bright plastic beads will make a garland suitable for a kids’ table. Situate them on one of our tiered trays with surrounding items.

3 Ways to Style Easter Eggs

It wouldn’t be Easter without piles of colorful plastic eggs, a staple in Easter egg hunts. That’s why each of our ReadyFestve Easter themed boxes include eggs this year! Even if you aren’t planning an Easter egg hunt, you can style these eggs in fun ways to add whimsy and color all throughout your house. Let’s explore different, creative ways to style your ReadyFestive eggs.

Style Eggs in a Vase

Fill a clear glass vase with brightly colored eggs to serve as a container for a pretty bouquet of real or artificial Easter flowers. It can also stand on its own as an attention-getting display.

Top Candlesticks with Eggs

You can buy candlesticks specifically for this purpose, or use what you have on hand (Just make sure the top has enough surface area to support an egg). Arrange the candlesticks on your tabletop and add greenery as a base before placing one egg on top of each. This would also look great on a buffet or sideboard.

Incorporate Eggs into Your Centerpiece

Create a centerpiece of elegant eggs that will perfectly match your place settings. For example, a large serving bowl filled with pretty nesting materials and several eggs will look great as the focal point of your Easter dinner table. Smaller bowls or vases filled the same way can be grouped in the center of your table as well.

5 Home Decor Trends & Tips for 2022

Keeping up with changing interior design and decor trends every year isn’t easy. From fresh color schemes to textures, patterns and prints, we’re here to help you stay in style in light of what’s predicted for 2022!

The following decor trends are a roundup of not only the latest industry trends, but also what we’re seeing in our search for decor that fits your favorite styles and themes. We hand pick every item in every box to be in line with what you’re sure to be looking for in the upcoming seasons. 

 

Co-Founder Liz looking at summer textiles 

Keep reading to learn more about the trends that have inspired us to curate this year’s boxes. We’ll also share our favorite decor tips and, if you have a ReadyFestive home decor box, help you get started decorating.

1. Bringing the Outdoors In

We’ve all felt a little cooped up this past year… This might be why we’re seeing design styles really lean into bringing more of the outdoors in.

Fresh greenery can bring life into a space. Plants are known to purify and improve air quality, and some studies have even shown that they increase productivity and reduce stress. 

Along with flowers and plants (real or artificial), certain materials inspired by nature, like wicker, hemp, and wood can be interpreted with baskets, rugs, and lamps. When brought in, these textures can liven up your living room, bathroom, and even your home office. 

Our “Modern” themed spring box includes this succulent with an airy sculptural sphere. It looks great added to a coffee table or bookshelf.

We’re bringing in more greenery with preserved moss topiary. Look for these adorable bunnies in our “Neutrals” themed Easter box. They come with a burlap accent bow and rest in a textured stoneware pot – perfect as a table centerpiece, or on your mantle! 

RF Decor Tip: Artificial green moss and eggs are a great way to decorate your surfaces for spring and Easter. See how we’ve incorporated eggs this year below:

2. Grandmillennial

You might have noticed the millennial generation’s newfound love for vintage inspired pieces, ruffles, patterns, pleats, and florals. Though this style isn’t new, it sure is seeing a resurgence among 20 to 30 year olds this year. 

The grandmillennial trend is making room for more traditional styles, signaling a shift away from minimalism and modernism. 

Co-founder and CEO of The Inside, Christiane Lemieux, says “The grandmillennial trend is really a reaction to the generic mid-century interiors we’ve seen for so long.”

For the first time, it might actually be cool to decorate like your grandma. 

In the spirit of grandmillennial, our Easter Pastels box features embroidered pillows.

We’re also pulling in more florals for spring, including a warm and colorful patterned pillow and hand towel.

RF Decor Tip: The best way to add in some grandmillennial decor? Throw pillows! Go for a blue and white color scheme to keep it simple and charming. Here’s an example from Sweet Savings & Things

3. Lots of Texture

Texture is sure to be everywhere this year. Play around with different textures by mixing and matching materials. Soft and velvety throws, linen furnishings, cane furniture, woolen rugs, mohair anything — the possibilities are endless. 

Getting that balance right between texture and color will be key to hitting all the right notes with your design scheme.

Here’s a sneak peak at our decor for Thanksgiving, featuring a gold pheasant, velvet pumpkins, acorns and other rich textures and patterns. 

RF Home Decor Tip: You might have noticed we have an affinity for beads at ReadyFestive. Adding beads to a table top is a great way to pull in texture. You can also wrap them around a vase or set them on top of a tray or stack of books. Many of our Thanksgiving boxes will incorporate wood beads to pull in more natural material, like the ones above.

4. Earthy and Neutral Tones

You might have already noticed that we’re going to be seeing more and more earthy and neutral tones this year. Browns will rule as will shades of green, gray, beige, and off-white, hence the “Woodlands” theme we are including in our Winter box collection. 

The color palette is very much nature-inspired as we’re opting to bring more of the great outdoors into our living spaces.

A single shade can make or break your design scheme. Try different shades of the same color or mix and match different colors with the same tones. Natural colors can be far from boring!

RF Home Decor Tip: Accentuate your bedroom with brown, green, or beige accents. Cotton stems like these can add a nice touch. 

5. Patterns and Prints

Floral, botanical, and animal prints will continue to be popular. 

Mod and retro styles as well as big and bold patterning are expected to rise in demand. You may want to pass on geometric prints like chevron and lattice. Design experts predict that these are on their way out. 

We’re so excited for you to see what we’ve chosen for our summer boxes this year, especially if you like color. We’re pulling in bright patterns and prints through items like these, which will be part of our “Rainbow” themed box: 

RF Home Decor Tip: 

Mixing and matching prints and patterns can be a little tricky and maybe even overwhelming… The good thing is that there are pattern matching basics that can help. 

To Wrap Up…

Keeping your home decor on trend shouldn’t require you to purchase new and pricey pieces, nor should you have to overhaul or redesign an entire space. A few small elements is really all it takes!
