While the calendar indicates that mid-March is the first of spring, most of us hold our first big spring celebration on Easter Sunday. Easter provides you the opportunity to celebrate the arrival of the re-emergence of leaves on the trees, joyful tulips poking their heads out from under their winter cover, and the arrival of the birds singing their springtime songs. So, in honor of spring décor, today’s post is all about How to Decorate for Easter Indoors and Out.
How to Decorate for Easter
 Outdoor Easter Décor
Many of us celebrate Easter over brunch. If you’re in a climate that’s already warm, why not serve your guests outdoors? You can all enjoy these moderately warm and pleasant spring days before the heat blast of summer hits your area.
Front Porch Easter Décor
Whether you’re dining indoors or out, offer your Easter guests a gracious entrance by decorating your porch for Easter. It will make them feel welcome when they see the effort that went into your decorating.

Hang an Easter wreath on your front door to add color and a warm welcome. Or, if you prefer, you can create a wreath that is “spring-themed” rather than Easter. Then, wire a stuffed bunny to the wreath for Easter Sunday and remove it on Monday…this gives you more bang for your buck.

The Easter Tablescape
Creating an elegant Easter tablescape is fun and easy. Take your inspiration from those first shades of spring. Robin’s egg blue, the soft green of new grass, the soft pink of cherry blossoms, or daffodil yellow are colors that come to mind. Take a look.
