Decorating your home for Easter
When it comes to Easter florals, there are a few key elements to keep in mind. First, Zita Elze thinks about the colours and textures associated with springtime. Soft pastels like blush pink, baby blue, and mint green are perfect for creating a light and airy feel, while bold and bright hues like fuchsia and coral can add a pop of energy and vibrancy.
Zita Elze is experienced in creating table centrepieces using an assortment of fresh blooms and foliage. Zita starts by selecting a mix of spring flowers such as tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, and ranunculus in soft pastel shades. Arranging them in a low, wide vase with plenty of greenery and filler flowers like baby's breath or ferns creates a lush, full look that's perfect for an Easter brunch or dinner.
Zita adds texture and uniqueness by utilising branches and twigs as the base of some centrepieces. Budding cherry blossoms, forsythia, or dogwood arranged in a tall vase, with a mix of spring flowers and foliage, creates a wild and organic look. This type of arrangement is perfect for a more rustic or natural Easter theme.
Floral garlands draped over your mantel or table with an assortment of spring flowers and greenery to create a lush garland, is another home décor option. With Easter-themed elements like colourful eggs, bunnies, or decorative carrots added in to bring a playful touch to your decor while still maintaining a sophisticated and elegant look.
Lastly, don't underestimate the power of a single stem. Single-stem bouquets are predicted to be a huge trend for 2023. A single stem can make a big impact when it's placed in a beautiful vessel or bud vase. For Easter, consider using blooming branches like cherry blossoms or pussy willow for a delicate and whimsical touch.
Here are a few additional décor suggestions to really bring Easter to life in your home this year:
- Consider incorporating Easter-themed elements:
While it's important to focus on the beauty of the Easter flowers themselves, adding in Easter-themed elements like eggs, bunnies, or decorative carrots can add a playful touch to your decor.
- Use unique vessels:
Don't be afraid to get creative with the vessels you use for your Easter floral arrangements. Consider using vintage vases, antique pitchers, or even hollowed-out eggs for a unique and unexpected look.
- Play with colour:
Easter is all about the colors of spring, so don't be afraid to experiment with bright, cheerful shades like pink, yellow, and purple during your floral design. However, if you prefer a more subdued look, pastel shades like pale pink, soft blue, and mint green can also be beautiful.
- Think beyond the table:
While table centrepieces are a popular choice for Easter, don't forget about other areas of your home that could benefit from some floral beauty. Consider purchasing a wreath from Zita Elze for your front door or a garland to hang on your mantel.
- Embrace simplicity:
Sometimes, less is more when it comes to floral arrangements. A simple, single-stemmed vase or a small bouquet of daffodils can sometimes be just as stunning as a larger, more elaborate centrepiece.
- Use seasonal blooms:
Zita incorporates the beautiful flowers of spring into Easter decor, such as cherry blossoms, lilacs, hyacinths, tulips, and daffodils. These flowers will add a pop of colour and a fresh, seasonal feel to your arrangements.
- Create a floral crown:
If you're hosting an Easter egg hunt or brunch, consider holding a small, light-hearted floral workshop, creating a floral crown for yourself and for your guests. Choose small, delicate blooms like forget-me-nots, baby's breath, and ranunculus to create a whimsical and ethereal look.
- Think outside the vase:
Don't limit yourself to traditional flowers in a vase for your Easter floral arrangements. Consider using unique vessels like teacups, mason jars, or even hollowed-out fruit like pineapples or watermelons.
- Mix and match:
Don't be afraid to mix and match the flower bouquets your order for us as your Easter centrepieces. Pair delicate blooms with lush greenery, or mix bold, bright flowers with soft pastels for a striking contrast.
- Create a tablescape:
Instead of a traditional centrepiece, consider commissioning a tablescape with multiple smaller arrangements or elements like candles, napkins, and place settings. This table flower arrangement can create a more dynamic and layered look that is perfect for Easter brunch or dinner.
- Play with scale:
Don't be afraid to mix and match different sizes of flowers and containers in your Easter flower arrangements. A single oversized bloom in a small vessel can create a dramatic and unexpected effect.
- Add a scent:
Fragrant flowers like hyacinths, lilacs, and lavender can add an extra sensory element to your Easter decor. Consider placing a few stems in key areas of your home to create a beautiful and inviting scent.
- Incorporate natural elements:
Easter is a celebration of new life and growth, so incorporating natural elements like branches, twigs, or even small potted plants can add to the overall theme and feel of your Easter flower decor.
Easter is the perfect time to incorporate the beauty of florals into your home decor. Whether you prefer a traditional or more contemporary style, there are endless possibilities for creating stunning Easter floral arrangements and centrepieces.
Remember, the most important thing is to have fun and let creativity guide you as you choose your Easter floral arrangements and centrepieces. Happy decorating and Happy Easter!
