I'm Amanda and I’m passionate about creating a well loved and well lived in home for my family and I I'd love to help you do the same!
I love Easter! The pastel colours, the cute bunnies, and of course the warmer temperatures after our long winters! I like to decorate my home for Spring and layer in the following 5 traditional Easter decor items in a fun but subtle way.

It’s Easter so of course, there must be eggs! I found beautiful faux speckled eggs at Michaels craft store. They came in a variety of colours and I chose the neutral eggs to use on the mantle and in the bookshelves. If you can’t find any faux eggs you can always make your own using this faux speckled egg tutorial.
I used the brighter coloured eggs on a fun Easter tablescape I set up for the girls. The orangey-pink colour looks cute with some little sparkly carrots from the dollar store!
I also like to use real eggs and eggshells as easy and inexpensive Easter decor items. You can make cute little planters, eggcup tealights, or just display the eggshells on their own!
I love bunny season! And I love adding little bunny touches around the house! This year I added Easter Egg hunt signs, paper lanterns, and of scroll down to see the two real bunnies I found stealing chocolate eggs!
I found these cute paper bunny lanterns at the dollar store!
These two little bunnies solemnly swear they are up to no good!
I love large oversize blooming stems for Spring! The renewal of life outside is so energizing and I love starting to bring the outdoors in! My favorite stems are cherry blossom and magnolia. I have faux stems since the real thing isn’t blooming here, but I always cut pussy willows from the end of the driveway to add something fresh too!
One really simple Easter decor idea is this “Easter tree” made using cherry blossom stems and speckled eggs hung on ribbons!
I always look for pretty paper decor items each season. They are an easy and inexpensive way to decorate! This year I found this fun “Hoppy Easter” garland and I set a kids table for the girls with sweet little paper plates and bunny treat bags and napkins!
Now I know where the mini eggs went!
I like to incorporate fresh greens in our decor year-round, but especially in the Spring! I added the mini Easter egg hunt signs around the house in all our various potted plants. And I hung a beautiful fresh green garland in the mudroom to make it feel like a potting shed until I can get outside and work in the real thing!
The girls have already been practising their egg hunting skills. These ones are already gone!
Fresh garland makes the mudroom feel like a potting shed! Greenery is a simple, but sometimes overlooked Easter decor idea!
