While all the tips below are based off a combination of 2023 trends and timeless “rules” for Easter decorating, perhaps the most impactful comes from Kirstin Paul – one of our on-site interior designers and contributor to this article. When arranging your Easter tablescape, it can be easy to focus on the visuals – but Kirstin suggests that aromatic decor is just as powerful. In her own words: "My favorite Easter decorating idea is aromatic infusion, made to elevate your senses! I love an herbaceous Easter table setting; table with various vases and jars of fresh dill, basil, chives, or rosemary. Not only do they provide amazing aroma and elevate a seasonal meal, they provide a great natural backdrop for the trendy pastel colors and naturally-dyed decorative eggs. The combination creates a table setting fit for the season." Whew! If that doesn’t whet your Easter-decorating appetite, we don’t know what will!
And now, the full list of everything you need to know about the holiday’s design trends for a, ahem, chicer Easter.
#1 All-Natural, All-Organic
When prepping your home, it can be easy to focus on the tried-and-true (think soft pastels, fresh florals and colorful Easter eggs – all of which put the “pretty” into the holiday’s decor). Along with the fun aesthetics, though, Easter is all about reflecting the feelings of refreshment and renewal that come with the season. One of the hottest trends for the year ahead, furniture – like dining tables, coffee tables and case goods – in earthy, toned-down neutrals deliver a fresh organic feel, and provide the perfect canvas for “pops” of pastel decor. Swapping out artificial colors and textures for distressed, unrefined surfaces offers effortlessly chic style – without losing the organic, renewing feel that makes this time of year so special.

“I love a buffet-style set-up with various platters for guests to customize their meal, away from the main dining space. Lots of greenery + light/bright linens with pops of color.”

#10 Refresh, Renew, Repeat
When all is said and done, Easter is the perfect time for fresh beginnings, and for fresh beginnings, the perfect place to start is home. Easter home decor should bring to you a sense of calm and renewal, so the colors and style choices best for your Easter decor will depend on the ones with which you associate these feelings the most!
“Use the time for sprucing up an Easter-decorated home to refresh with seasonal colors. Sage and white bode well this time of year long after the holiday.”
“I say, ‘Let winged creatures do your bidding for Easter decor!’ Try placing tiny bird figurines on windowsills, in bookcases and on kitchen counters to capture the newness that the end of April brings.”
