How to celebrate Easter at home this year

Easter weekend might look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take in the holiday and bring some festivity into your home.

Here are a few ways to celebrate Easter weekend at home:

  • Put up homemade Easter eggs in your window: many people are taking part in a social distancing Easter egg hunt, which is a great way to connect with your neighbours, without any physical connection.
  • Decorate eggs: take your Easter egg game beyond traditional food colouring, you can decorate an egg with almost anything!
  • Bring in flowers: it’s officially spring, and that means there are beautiful fresh flowers with all the colours of Easter—tulips, daisies, daffodils, etc. A bouquet of spring flowers will not only freshen your home but bring some Easter flair inside as well.
  • Do a family Zoom meeting: many families and friends are turning to video conferencing apps to stay connected during this time, so schedule a virtual meeting with the whole family as a check-in over the weekend.
  • Easter tree: tree decorating isn’t just a Christmas tradition, the Easter tree is actually a long-running Scandinavian tradition. You can buy ready-made Easter trees at many home decor shops, or you can make your own with a few branches or twigs in a vase, and decorate with tiny Easter ornaments or colours.
  • Easter wreaths: a simple and creative way to decorate for Easter is to have an Easter wreath on your door. You can buy them at any craft or home decor stores or find tons of DIY ideas on sites like Pinterest.
  • Get inspired by the Easter Bunny: whether it’s a creative twist on dessert or a DIY craft you can do with the whole family.
  • Bring in the pastels: if bunnies, eggs and chicks all over your house aren’t your styles, you can easily bring in Easter to your home with splashes of pastel colours. Simple pastel touches in flowers, throw pillows or table decor will make a huge difference. If you’re looking for colour inspiration.
  • Decorate the table: Easter-inspired decor on your table looks festive and also takes your dinner hosting to the next level. Add splashes of pastel, or decorate with eggs. A great idea for seating signs is to dip eggs in pastel colours, and then write the name of the person on the egg with a permanent marker.

We hope you find some peace this holiday long weekend.
