Simple Easter Decorations

simple sophisticated easter decorations

Easter is one of those odd holidays for me.  My husband and I don’t have children yet – so sometimes I hesitate going all-out decorating our home for holidays.  Especially ones like Easter, where the decorations can tend to lean towards the child-like or cheesy-side.  But, I love switching up the decor in my house, so I am always looking for simple, sophisticated ways to decorate.

I love the natural feel of all of these ideas:  they scream “spring” and hint “Easter!”  This trio of pots would be darling on a front entry table or as a centerpiece for Easter brunch.  I love how they filled each one with something different!  You have all heard me talk about my bowl full of moss balls that typically sits on my coffee table…..I am LOVING this easy update for Easter: mix in a few blue robin’s eggs.  Simple, and a lovely touch of color!

I still dye Easter eggs – sometimes I can coheres my husband into participating, sometimes I do it all by myself!  I love the idea of polka dotted eggs – and presenting them in a bowl with some twiggy moss.  And lastly, a simple update to your house plants: sponge paint your pots with a soft metallic paint, and add some moss at the roots.  It will take it from boring to beautiful instantly!
