Hopping into Spring with Easter Décor
Moss bunnies $12.99 & $24.99 | Nest with eggs $9.99
Spring is finally in the air! As the sun shines brighter and the temperature begins to rise, it’s time to bid adieu to the dull winter season and welcome the vibrant hues of spring! To me, the onset of this season represents growth and renewal. We see it in nature as fresh buds emerge from the stale leaves of fall, and we feel inclined to mimic this in our interiors. With Easter around the corner, this is the perfect opportunity to freshen up our homes with a bright and airy makeover!
Whether you’re looking to brighten up a dark space or add some air to a stuffy room, there are plenty of ways to give your home a spring refresh. I like to start by cracking the windows. The outside air always pulls fresh energy into the house. Some music and a good deep clean feels so good this time of year! I like to go through room by room decluttering anything that no longer brings me joy or that is reminiscent of winter. I grab a basket and pull out everything that doesn’t belong so I can begin to decorate with a clean slate.
Once all signs of winter are out of my house, there’s space to fill in with seasonal and Easter décor. I didn’t ever decorate my house for Easter until I had children. And initially I brought in lots of dollar store items, because that’s what I thought made the kids happy, and it was cheap. But over the years I’ve found that it doesn’t have to be tacky to make the kids excited. The anticipation of the holiday is what brings the joy! So, in recent years, I’ve switched gears and use décor that suites my home and that I can use year after year. No more one and done decorations to add to the landfills. Of course, we still do plenty of Easter crafts and painting eggs. But now, as far as décor goes, it is thoughtful and adds to the look of the house. And every year when I pull out the artificial tulips, lavender, and bunnies – the kids are excited as ever. Easter is around the corner!

There are so many different ways to freshen up our homes for the season. Ultimately, whatever makes YOU happy is the best choice! For me, adding in lots of colour & florals always seems to bring the house to life after a long winter. I don’t go overboard, but I do go through all the main rooms adding a little bit to each space. To keep it from looking overwhelming, I try to keep a cohesive colour scheme for each area. One spot may have pink and yellows, another room will have pale blues and greens.
In the living room I start by swapping out my textured winter throw pillows for a brighter version. I still keep lots of texture, but store away anything that is furry or heavier, in lieu something lighter. I also change up my coffee table décor. Here I like to add in some artificial florals and, of course, a cute bunny or two. And any vases that housed wintery greens are replaced with artificial stemmed florals.
In the kitchen, I like to keep things simple, cute, and functional. Counter space is always in high demand when preparing meals, so I try to keep my décor purposeful so as to not add clutter.
