If you’re anything like us, we are all feeling the aching need for spring. That crisp air that gives you chills but the good kind, like, “oh hey, I can get out my sweet white sneakers that I bought last year. “ We’re almost there. This period of time before spring can feel like the last haul of a work out when you’re feeling exhausted and just want to lie down. But you keep pushing and like true Minnesotans, we keep pushing through Sprinter. Sprinter: When it snows on the first day of spring. But during Sprinter a beautiful holiday occurs, Easter, a time to get together with family, eat delicious egg bakes, and celebrate the miracles of life. Whether you’re hosting Easter or just showing up with a side, we have some trendy ideas for a different take on your typical Easter décor. Whether you’re a millennial that wants to decorate your open airy apartment or a new homeowner who is hosting their first Easter, we have the ideas for you to keep your focus during this time of transition from winter to spring, to make the most out of this holiday.
Chalkboards are our love. For our Easter brunch we’re using it as a menu. We bought this particular one at a local antique store. However, you can find a chalkboard at excellent price points at Target, Hobby Lobby, or Michaels. Chalk can get messy, so use chalkboard markers for a clean look. As Vanilla Ice would say, “brunch brunch baby.”
Here is a modern take on the classic Easter basket. We feel that Easter baskets are bought every year but there is no use for them after one day. So why not purchase a “basket” you can use year round. We love this one from Carver Junk Company. After Easter, use this in your bathroom to hold soap and any other small toiletries. You could also use this as a desert tower. Place cupcakes, cookies, and cake for another hosting event. Or use it in your bedroom for plants, jewelry, or even your remote. The possibilities are endless.
Try this! Take any candle stick holders in your house and place an egg in each one. So easy.
We are obsessed with succulents. Succulents are easy to maintain and their colors and different shapes and sizes are perfect for centerpieces. For pots, take old bowls or other plant holders you haven’t been using. Fill with dirt and add small rocks or sand to fill it in at the top. We made ours at Carver Junk Company during their Succulent Bar.
