The spring is here, and one of the most beautiful celebrations is on our doorsteps, bringing new happiness and hope. This year our celebration will be like no other, as most of us will have to celebrate it alone or only with people from our household. However, it is all in our hands to create the Easter spirit and keep the traditions! Whether you already have some plan for your Easter decor or are still looking for ideas, we are here to help you! We have collected some beautiful Easter decoration designs, which we hope you will love and thus discover something that can be adapted in your house or for the Easter celebration! We also couldn't resist adding a couple of recipes as they looked so appealing, and I am sure I will try one of them! Enjoy our suggestions and stay creative, as you can adapt dishes, vases, flowers from your house, and make a stunning design.
Spring Tray decoration
To achieve this style at your Easter table, you should pick a board or a tray where you can add some moss (which you probably won't have in your house), but it can be replaced by grass, herbs, and little flowers, which you may have in your home. You can also add a decorative bunny, your dyed eggs, candles shaped like eggs and small candles.
Bunny ears napkins
This simple, but the fascinating idea will turn your eating plates into an attractive bunny portrait. To achieve it, you need one colour napkin, preferably linen. Roll the napkin, bend it in half, use a little string to keep the 'ears' together, and put the egg in the middle of the loop. You also can add the desired flower.
If you do not have fabric napkins, you also can use a paper napkin.
Fresh blossoms centerpiece
Looking for the spring breeze in your room? This design is for you! To achieve this bright and refreshing look, you can use a glass vase or a pot, decorate it with delicately coloured eggs depending on your desired colour palette. You can use artificial or real cherry blossoms or any other blossoming branches to give the spring vibe to your table set-up.
Country Chich table décor
This style may suit you best if you have an old wooden table. Use white or pastel colour plates as they would look the best, you can place a bunny onto each dish and place a bouquet of neutral colour flowers in the middle of the table will do the job!
Pink accent Easter décor
If you like pink, you will love this design the most! Using white, golden, and pink details, you will achieve a playful and fresh design. Pink napkins, with pink flowers and egg-shaped sweets, will stand out on your table next to neutral colours. If you have/buy egg decorations/bunnies and use neutral candles, you will get it very alike to the picture, but be creative and add your ideas; you will do a great job!
If you do not have any beautiful candles for your Easter table, you can make your own candles, by recycling your old ones, and bringing them to new life. You will find these candles very useful for decorating your Easter table, and you will have most, if not all, needed items at home.
a. Candle thermometer;
b. Clean, empty eggshells;
c. Old pot for boiling water;
d. Wick (or old birthday cake candles);
e. Used candles (once melted, you can also reuse the wicks);
f. Melting pour pot;
Firstly, be very attentive to your candle wax as it is flammable, do not use direct heat to melt it and keep flammable items away from the stove, and do not leave melting wax unattended.
1. Cover your workspace with a newspaper, to ease your clean up later.
2. Boil a pot of water and put the old pot with candle wax inside.
3. Using thermometer heat candles to 125-150 F. Check temperature frequently and do not let it reach 250F as it can become flammable.
4. Pour the wax into your eggshells within two rounds. In first-round fill, ¾ of the shell, leave it for 10-15 min, then insert the wick into the centre of your eggshell candle. In the second-round, fill the eggshell with the rest of the wax.
5. Leave it for at least 2 hours before use.

Matcha moss muffins
If you feel that all these decorations are not enough to make your Easter table stand out, we have you an extra tip! You can bake or buy desired taste muffins and decorate them with matcha moss look, which we discovered at ThirstyforTea!

3/4 cups of fresh bread or cake crumbs
1/3 cup unsweetened dried coconut
2 Tbsp culinary matcha
1 Tbsp ground flax seeds or wheat bran
cupcakes, muffins, cakes, or cookies
frosting or nut butter
mixing bowl or a whisker
1. In a bowl, mix all the moss ingredients.
2. Frost the cupcakes with a thin layer of frosting.
3. Dip the top of the cupcakes in the matcha moss. Let the cupcake sit for a few minutes, then dip it in the moss mix a second time. Repeat for all the cupcakes. If you'd like, add more natural-themed embellishments like flowers or candies.
