When I was a kid two things meant Easter was on it’s way when they popped up in our house: hot cross buns and an Easter tree. My Mum would always have an Easter tree in our kitchen choc full of pretty pastel eggs which meant the Easter bunny wasn’t too far away. I think the first time we had one she had bought the little eggs in America as it wasn’t really something you would see here in Ireland, well in rural Cavan anyway!
I featured this nostalgic idea on my insta stories this week but thought it might be nice to do a little feature over here too.
The Easter egg tree is a symbol of new life and new beginnings and it’s the perfect little seasonal update for any space in your home. What’s great about it is you can have even the smallest space and still make this happen and it won’t break the budget either! Pop it in your hallway so visiting guests can see or, use as a pretty centerpiece for Easter Sunday dinner.
Simple Easter Tree Decor
What you will need:
- Lightweight eggs with ribbons or string attached (bonus points if you get crafty and make your own!) I picked these pastel cuties up in Pennys/Primark for €4 but I also spotted them in TK Maxx, Dunnes Stores and Heatons.
- Dried branches or twigs long enough to fit your chosen vessel. You could also use pussy willows for a neater look (your local flower shop may have these) but I quite like the freeform look that the dried branches from the garden give.
- A vase, jug or pot which you can fill with blooms and your branches. The duck egg blue one featured is from Heatons.
- Some pretty pastel blooms.
Tips for Creating your Own Simple Easter Tree Decor
- Make sure your vessel is deep enough to hold the branches.
- Pick flowers in pretty pastel shades for a pretty Easter look. If you don’t want to use flowers, you can use sand, floral foam, or pebbles to keep the branches steady.
- You don’t have to use a vase, why not try a potted plant?
