Easter Color Scheme
Since Easter is a spring holiday, opt for pastel colors. Soft shades of yellow, blue, pink, purple, green and orange are lovely Easter colors. You may also choose to add splashes of silver or gold to add a spark of sophistication.

Decorative Elements for Easter
When decorating your home for Easter, be sure to add traditional decorative elements such as decorative Easter eggs, Easter baskets, an Easter tree, and birds' nests. Fill wicker and wire baskets with pastel colored eggs. Create an Easter tree by hanging Easter eggs on a potted tree branch. Ornament tables with Easter eggs nestled in birds' nests. Don’t forget to add vases full of fresh spring flowers such as lilies and tulips. Finish decorative elements with beautiful ribbon in coordinating pastel colors.

Table Décor
Easter Sunday dinner deserves a well-decorated table. Begin with a beautiful table cloth, table runner, place mats, and napkins in spring designs. Add a stunning Easter centerpiece.  Include fresh colorful flowers in a colorful vase. For example, add purples tulips to a purple vase. Tie an attractive, coordinating ribbon around the vase. Another option is to put pillar candles in silver-toned candleholders and arrange fresh greenery and spring flower petals around the base. Consider using an Easter tree as a table centerpiece as well. View more Easter centerpiece ideas here.

Easter Wreath
Finish Easter decorating by hanging an Easter wreath on the door. Either purchase an Easter wreath or make one using natural vine material and embellishments.  Some suggestions include silk flowers and leaves, speckled Easter eggs, stuffed animals, and ribbon.
