You know it’s springtime when the Easter bunny comes around! While Easter is one of those holidays that’s rooted in religious tradition, it has been overly commercialized in modern times as well. And that’s probably because a lot of people would rather embrace the more modern traditions of the holiday than think about the gruesome crucifixion of Jesus.
For some people, Easter is still one of the holiest days of the year. For others, the holiday has become more so a celebration of spring than anything else. No matter how you choose to spend Easter Sunday this year, there are many options when it comes to decorations that you can put on display in your home.
Ready to make the day seem more special? Looking for some ideas on how to decorate for Easter this year? We have you covered!
From Easter bunnies to colorful eggs and everything in between, keep reading for a list of 15 timeless Easter decorations that will put you in a springtime mood and help you celebrate the holiday in style!
How to Celebrate Easter
Millions of people celebrate Easter for the sake of its religious significance. For millions of others, the holiday is all about the whimsical decor, the pastel colors, the egg hunts, the bunnies, the Peeps, and the chocolate eggs!
Traditionally, Christians celebrate Easter as a way of commemorating the resurrection of Jesus. Holiday festivities usually involve getting dressed up, attending church, and having an Easter dinner with the family that, more often than not, consists of cooked ham and many side dishes.
But there are plenty of people who celebrate Easter as a sort of kick-off to the spring season, too! Families and friends often gather to partake in the more commercial side of the Easter holiday by giving Easter baskets filled with candy to the kids and Easter flowers, such as tulips, to mothers, grandmothers, and anyone who’s hosting an Easter dinner or brunch.
No matter how or why you celebrate the holiday, Easter is still an opportunity for you to put on a cute outfit, gather with family or friends, and eat to your heart’s content. What could be better than that?!
Our 15 Favorite Easter Decorations for 2022
If you’re hosting a celebratory Easter event or you just want your house to feel a bit more festive this April, these 15 timeless Easter might just help you celebrate in style and welcome spring into your home!
1. Easter Egg Wreath
If you’ve ever visited someone’s home on Easter Sunday, there’s a good chance you’ve been greeted with a Happy Easter wreath hanging on the front door. Classic wreaths with Easter greetings and bunny rabbits are great, but we’re more into the quirky yet cool look of this egg wreath. We love this egg wreath simply for the fact that the metallic eggs add a modern touch while the wrapped vines add a natural and rustic appeal.
2. Easter Egg Tree
It’s almost impossible to make your home look Easter-ready without Easter egg decorations. Aside from the age-old tradition of dying and decorating hard-boiled eggs, placing egg-shaped decor around the house is a fun way to get your family, friends and guests in the Easter spirit.
One of our favorite egg decorations is this Easter egg tree. It’s basically a tabletop tree featuring a burlap covered base as well as multicolored eggs and pom poms all over. It stands about 18 inches tall, making it the perfect size for kitchen counters, window sills, side tables, or shelves.
3. Easter Table Centerpiece
Nothing beats an Easter brunch with a fun, welcoming tablescape that uses whimsical accents, just like this Easter table centerpiece. The colorful egg display comes in two sizes, allowing you to choose the perfect size for your dining table.
It’s adorned with colorful speckled eggs as well as artificial yet natural-looking foliage and leaves. Plus, it’s handmade so each one will have its own one-of-a-kind look.
4. Easter Baskets
You can’t have an Easter celebration without candy-filled Easter baskets around the house! This set of three Easter baskets offers a fun, retro feel tied into the multicolored woven bamboo… Pun intended! They come with shredded paper that acts as filler by lining the bottom of the baskets. Plus, if you fill them with buttercream eggs, Peeps, and chocolate bunnies, they make excellent Easter gifts for kids.
5. Bunny Ears
Handmade using wood and fuzzy pink fabric, these Bunny ears make us smile from… Well, ear to ear! They’re just over three inches tall, making them easy to add to an Easter tablescape. They make a great accent on top of a mantel or a shelf, too!

Simply drape it across a mantel, place it above a doorway, or line the edge of a dining table with this beautiful decoration!
