Simple Spring Decor Ideas

 

Is it just me or did Easter seem to take forever, but then creep up really quick? If you’re anything like myself, it’s Wednesday morning and you’re thinking, Huh - what am I actually going to do for Easter meals/decor/baskets/everything?

Here are some simple decor ideas for those who wait last minute and just call it minimalistic ;)


Wheatgrass, duh - such a good idea! Just save some egg shells from your breakfast and rinse them gently. Next, fill the shells with potting soil and sprinkle a dense layer of wheat seeds over the dampened soil. Place in a sunny window and within three days you’ll see fresh little sprouts! Use this method to also create a liner for Easter baskets with real grass!

How fun is this fresh and colorful centerpiece?! Grab a some vibrant vegetables and large glass vases. To achieve this look you’ll have to get a little crafty. While some grocers don’t offer veggies with their greens, many root vegetables like carrots and radishes may still have them attached in the organic section. If they are cut off, you can grab some long leafy greens like parsley or spinach. Tie your “leaves” in a bunch with a rubber band and attach to the top of the vegetable body with a skewer - half in the “leaves”, half in the veggie. Finish off with some cute twine to cover the rubber band. Place vegetable in a large glass vase and fill water up to the “leaves” to keep them from wilting. Ta-da! This is lots of fun to do along side your kiddos, play with colors and textures to get them involved.

This idea is so simple and resourceful - I love that about it! Grab a large trough or tray and layer the base with greenery; eucalyptus works well for this (plus the scent, yum). Next place a bag of lemons atop the greens. Tuck cotton twigs in for an extra little accent. Boom - done! Now where'd I put that 1lb chocolate bunny….
