Easter is about more than chocolate eggs - it's the time to connect with family and plan activities that drag everyone outside. It’s also a great opportunity to banish winter blues, brighten up your home, indoors and out with fresh flowers, cheery spring colours and decorate your home for Easter. Here, at the Wooden Furniture Store we've gathered some of the simplest yet most effective Easter decorating ideas for you to use to add a spring-like feel to your home.
Deck your front door
Brighten up your home's entry with a colourful Easter inspired door decoration. There's plenty of inspiration on Pinterest but we love the idea of a living spring wreath. Our friends at Rose and Mary have made this amazing smelling version using mini daffodil bulbs, mimosa, berried ivy, moss and eucalyptus.
An Easter hallway display

Welcome guests by creating an inviting Easter hallway display. Decorated trees aren't just for Christmas - the Scandinavian tradition of Easter trees is making its mark here and is great way to brighten up a console table. Simply display a handful of twigs or branches in a vase and hang with tiny egg, chick decorations or pastel feathers.
Easter dining room
Does your dining room look a bit tired and need a refresh ready for having lots of people over for lunch on Easter Sunday? Family gatherings are a breeze with this Shiro Walnut large dining table which seats up to eight and has a classic, solid design. For a contemporary take on dining chairs, these coordinate with the table and are upholstered in a sleek grey linen fabric and have solid walnut legs.
And to keep your Easter dining room clutter free, here are four great storage solutions.
Think about fitting bookcases into unused alcoves. This freestanding Mobel Oak large three drawer bookcase can be home to tablecloths and napkins, place mats or even be used to display pretty plates.
If you’ve got space, this Urban Chic six drawer sideboard is just the thing. It neatly stores everything you need and gives you a surface for serving dishes too.
Opt for a glass fronted display cabinet that will show off tableware and glassware rather than keeping it hidden from view. The Mayan Walnut corner display cabinet is perfect for tight, awkward spaces and matches the extending dining table.
The La Roque Mahogany dresser is a great combination of storage and display - the bottom half is a great place to store plates, cluttery and glasses out of sight, while behind the glass doors there is lots of display space for treasured crockery.

Bring the outdoors in
Why stay cooped up inside when dining outdoors in the spring is such a treat? Carry the dining table outside and enjoy your Easter lunch in the sunshine surrounded by trees and flowers just breaking into bloom. And while you're outside, why not organise an Easter egg hunt or create and Easter egg tree?

Your fireplace mantel is another great place to showcase a seasonal display. To spring-ify your mantel, fill pitchers with fresh-cut blossom, add dyed eggs, Easter bunting or even a small faux bird's nests add an organic touch.

You can also fill your rooms with spring flowers to capture a traditional Easter theme throughout your home - we especially like daffodils and hyacinths.
