In the lead up to Easter, when we start to see the first signs of spring, there’s always a feeling of hope in the air. The winter is finally over and we can celebrate the change in the season. Many people choose to do this with Easter decorations for the home, and there are a huge number of different types of decoration to choose from!
This European tradition is becoming more and more common in the United States. All it means is setting up a small tree, usually made from natural twigs, in a pot or container around the home. The Easter tree is then decorated with dyed eggs, paper flowers and candy.
Easter is really about spring, so bringing some spring flowers into your home is perfect for getting you in the mood for the season! Some typical Easter flowers include tulips, lilies (symbolizing the resurrection), and daisies.
