Something about holiday decorating sparks joy and nostalgia. The best thing is that festive styling doesn’t have to be costly, or time consuming. Celebrated property stylist and founder of Vault Interiors Justine Wilson shares four of her best Easter decorating tips. With no time to waste, be sure to start planning to ensure your home shines this Easter Sunday.
Welcome family and friends to your home with a festive statement hung on the front door. Ms Wilson says, “For Easter, I’m always drawn to lots of greenery, earthy and natural-looking wreaths with pastel tones. Wreaths with cute details such as eggs, bunnies, chicks, or flowers will definitely signify Easter is coming”.
The Morgan & Finch bunny wreath decoration features soft tones and natural touches to create a fresh and elegant look. It’s from Bed, Bath N’ Table.
Create a magical fairyland scene for the kids. Coloured eggs, pretty floral arrangements, cute bunnies and sweet treats look great. “Grouping together can create a magical Easter vignette,” Ms Wilson says. “Display your Easter decor on hall tables, coffee tables or mantles. It’s an easy way
to spruce up your space and create a festive vibe.”

Decorate a tree
Who says the Christmas tree should be used only once a year? Ms Wilson says decorating the artificial tree is a fun visual statement for your home. “For Easter, consider dressing the tree in pretty ribbons, faux floral, hanging carrots, Easter egg ornaments, or cute bunnies. At night it will create a pretty background twinkle and ambiance, and having a decorated Easter tree is a great way to bring in the festive feeling.”
For a more understated statement, consider adorning a few tree branches with colourful decorations. You can also purchase small wooden Easter trees and stems from various retail stores.
A well-thought-out tablescape will inject style and festivity into your home. For Easter, a grass or hessian table runner is a great base. Build on the look with pretty linen. “Then add a centrepiece; this could be as simple as seasonal floral in pretty vases with some candles, or fun trinkets like Easter bunnies or pretty Easter eggs,” Ms Wilson says. “I think the key with any centrepiece display is to play with the height levels of your objects. If you can have a variety of sized objects, or vases in your arrangement, it’s sure to look intricate and fun.
For an inexpensive decorating option, we like the Harper bunny placemat from Provincial Home Living. These paper placemats come in a pack of 50.
Flowers accompanied by greenery are a must for any Easter table. This sweet native bouquet of peonies arranged in a glass vase is from Adairs.
