To Christians, Easter season is the remembrance of the crucifixion, death, and resurrection of Christ. After the season of Lent, commemorating the 40 days Jesus spent fasting in the desert, Christians recognize Palm Sunday and Easter. It is complicated to determine which Sunday Easter takes place each year. I found this article to be informative. This year, 2022, Easter Sunday is April 19th, so you still have time to design a look for your home.
Many Easter traditions are not found in the Bible. The Easter bunny is the most prominent secular symbol of the holiday, and was reportedly introduced to America by the German immigrants who brought over their stories of an egg-laying hare. The decoration of eggs is believed to date back to at least the 13th century. Other secular traditions, like Easter candy, are modern additions to this early spring holiday.
If you want to emphasize the secular season of Easter in your Spring decor, add some bunny focused items. As my style is more formal, I am careful to keep an elevated look and not let things go too cutesy or country.
First, I swap out the green cabbage leaf salad plates for the Bunny salad plates which coordinate with the dinner plate.
I found moss covered bunnies and added those in the Great room and dining room. I use the beaded carrot napkin rings (I have had these for years) to give additional color to the table centerscape and the side table arrangement, and to further highlight the bunny theme.
There are many options for the napkin placement. When I have a theme decorated salad plate, I prefer to use the napkin in the water goblet, to the side of the setting, or folded between the plates.
There are so many ways to decorate for Spring and to customize for the Easter holiday. Changing the decor seasonally keeps your home fresh and interesting for those who live there, as well as for those who visit!
