1. Easter trees

Allow yourself to be taken in by this spring trend! While many might be sceptical and associate this simply with Christmas, Easter trees have been on the periphery for a few years now and are now making their way into mainstream. Typically a smaller artificial tree in white or a colour of your choice, the trees can be as small as big as you like, and are perfect for hanging handmade Easter decorations and special pieces in pastel hues that showcase the season.

The decorations don’t need to be limited to eggs either, think spring so farm animals, flowers and insects are worthy of an appearance. Pictured above are some great examples of Easter decorations that Good Homes loves from Dunelm including: Striped Rainbow Beaded Hanging Egg Decoration £3; Yellow Beaded Hanging Egg Decoration £3; Green Beaded Hanging Egg Decoration £3; Beaded Hanging Rainbow Decoration £3. For a similar tree, try the White Tree Decoration, £7, Matalan.

If you’re looking for more Easter decorations to darn your tree that don’t appear gimmicky, there are plenty of unique options available. Paper cut decorations were a major trend for Christmas 2021, and the theme is continuing into spring, and these distinctive shades of sage green, amber orange and off-white are particularly stylish. The glass hanging eggs ooze classy elegance, while the handpainted wooden eggs are perfect for those with young children. Prices for the ideas pictured above are: Hanging paper egg decorations set of three £18, Layered Lounge; Feather filled glass hanging egg £7.50, Ella James; Easter wooden painted eggs set of three £16, Ella James.

2. Easter wreaths

Just like trees finding their way from a certain festive holiday, wreaths have made their way into the spring season. Whether you choose to create your own DIY wreath or purchase a ready-made one, the effect will still dazzle your doorway for the Easter festivities. If you prefer something maximalist and out there or opt for a more understated doorway design, there are plenty of ideas on the market. Discover how to make your own Easter decoration wreath, or invest in one of the ready-made designs available.

3. The Easter table

A huge part of the Easter festivities is the food! Whether it’s a typical Good Friday fish supper or the traditional Easter Sunday roast lamb, it’s a time to be gluttonous and celebrate with your nearest and dearest. As this part of the occasion has been missed out by many for a while now, it’s definitely an element that people will be looking forward to reclaiming and therefore tablescaping decor must be on point. Pictured below are some accessories which are wonderful for adorning your table and giving a tasteful Easter effect: Easter crackers 6pk £5, B&M; Halk cottage jug with tilted sprout £18, Dunelm; 6pk Easter wishes napkin rings £3.

As well as setting the table beautifully, another key element is the centrepiece. Whether you opt for a table piece or an overhead hanging decoration, this can make a serious statement to your Easter decor scheme. The below design brings instant spring vibes to the table and resembles an Easter nest. Order your large hanging wreath £60, Garden Trading.
