20 Best Easter Decorating Ideas for a 'Perfectly Pastel' Spring

While all the tips below are based off a combination of 2024 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.

easter decor tips

#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.

#2 Warm Undertones

Easter decoration ideas wouldn’t make much sense if they didn’t feel comfy, inviting and like home. While a light and airy palette is the hallmark of Easter style, warmer colors make for a cozier ambiance. For an aesthetic that feels just as relaxed and lived-in as it does bright and chirpy, don’t be afraid to incorporate heavier neutrals into a breezy pastel color scheme – just make sure to keep the heavier colors closer to the floor. An area rug, for example, in brown or grey is an excellent way to ground and warm a space while preparing it for more refreshing accents. 

neutrals hue tint shade

#3 Neutral Eggs

“Tone” (a mixture of any color + grey), “tint” (a mixture of any color + white) and “shade” (a mixture of any color + black) are some of the hottest design buzzwords you can expect to hear this spring. But when it comes to incorporating them into your space, don’t let the confusing jargon get in the way; to stay on the all-natural, all-organic trend of 2024, just remember that the elements which take up the most space (think: tables, rugs, walls) should be kept in year-round neutral finishes. How to add a jovial Easter touch to a neutral color plan? Opt for decor that is easy to switch in and out – like pillows, dyed eggs and wall art – in soft, springtime neutral pastels.

#4 Fresh Wreaths

Nothing says Easter decor – and the rejuvenating, renewing feelings that come with the season – like a wreath of fresh tulips or other spring flower; place together two wreaths, each of the same design and color but different heights, on a front door setting or hallway wall for a chic take on a classic staple.

#5 CHIC-ster Brunch

Whether you’re planning on feasting outdoors or in, give Easter brunch a chic makeover with on-trend tabletop decor; think place settings, egg cups and bird's nests full of faux flowers. You can also create a buffet-style set-up with various place cards for guests to customize their meal, away from the main dining space. Lots of greenery + napkin rings with pops of color.

#6 Carrots and Baskets

Easter baskets aren’t just for the little ones anymore; and filling them to the brim with plastic eggs and candy isn’t the only way to style them. Just the right amount of rustic-meets-chic, placing decorative baskets with handcrafted carrots around the house – on a coffee table here, a kitchen counter there – brings a light simplicity perfect for a sophisticated Easter aesthetic.

Designer Tip:

#7 Bedroom Buoyancy

Because it is out of the way, the bedroom is most often the most neglected room of the house – but it is precisely because it is out the of the way that it gives you a little more freedom to experiment with color! Bedroom decor is especially helpful as a testing ground for when you are considering ‘going bold’ with a particular shade in the living room or dining room, but are not quite yet sure how your color choices will play out. This season, use spring cleaning or prepping for Easter as a chance to show your bedroom some extra springtime love. Swap out your everyday duvet for a fun yellow throw blanket or go bold with a refreshing shade of paint.

#8 Egg-cellent Seating!

“Egg-shaped” furniture and decor with oval silhouettes, incorporated with spontaneity through your home and backyard, make for delightful Easter surprises both kids and adults are sure to love.

#9 Outdoor Easter Decorations

You can’t talk about Easter decor without talking about outdoor spaces; full of fresh foliage, sweet spring flowers and the radiant sunshine, a clear spring day in the backyard is as “Easter” as it gets. Play up the warm energy of nature by arranging cozy seating and dining arrangements al fresco, and, again, have fun with egg silhouettes! (Eggshell-shaped chairs in particular are a hot trend – and make for winning Easter yard decorations.)

#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!

#11 Season-Long Spring Decor

While bunny ears and Easter eggs are festive, they can't be left out into May and June. Use the time for sprucing up an Easter-decorated home to refresh with seasonal colors. Sage, white and light blue bode well this time of year long after the holiday — and will act as the perfect gateway into the summer months.

#12 One With the Birds

When chirps, tweets and peeps ring in the mornings, it's time to think about bringing positive Easter vibes to the trees. Hanging lanterns are the trend to embrace if you're looking to celebrate fresh air and new life — in a way that blends in with the branches.

Designer Tip:

#15 Easter Bunny In Hiding

Designer Tip:

“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.”

#16 Family Gatherings

Easter Sunday is a time for family to gather in celebration of a religious tradition. Traditions include Sunday brunch and Easter egg hunts — well, for the human families. On Easter Sunday or any given Sunday around the time, families of songbirds, cardinals and warblers flocked together = a common sight for searching eyes.

#17 Lighter Than Air

Light-up paper lanterns aren’t just holiday decor, they also serve to keep the party lingering after dark. Pretty pastel shades pop against a clear black spring sky — making them a must-have for a cute Easter aesthetic.

#18 Easy Easter Loungin’

Whether or not you have family over for brunch or dinner on the Sunday after the first full moon of the vernal equinox, you’re going to need seating. Why? If you’re with family, it’s the pretty obvious need for making sure every guest has a spot to rest. If you’re by yourself, a reserved vignette just for you to contemplate, reflect or even meditate will make Easter feel all the more special and sacred. (After all, it’s not just a common Sunday!)
