Google search trends for Easter wreaths and spring flowers have both increased by over 100% this month.
March 2023: With Easter celebrations only a little more than a week away, now is the ideal time to decorate your windows egg-celently to mark the start of spring.
Experts at premium window and door designer, The Residence Collection, have compiled five top tips to dress your windows for Easter, creating a light, fun and inviting space for your home.
- Decorate your windowsill
Welcome guests into your home with an Easter tree made of coloured hollow eggs hung from spring branches. It’s a wonderfully easy and trendy way to spruce up a windowsill, ottoman or coffee table in a dining room or living room. Don’t leave it too late to hop on this trend as Google searches have increased by over 300% this week1!
Typically Easter trees are made from pussy willow, magnolia, flowering quince or cherry blossom, so choose a branch that fits your interior colour scheme and window style. Place the branches in a beautiful vase and adorn with hanging egg decorations or wrap around some fairy lights to add extra twinkle that can be spotted through the window.
- Match your interior style
Coordinate your spring and Easter decorations with the colour palette and design in the rest of your home.
If your home is neutral and minimalist, use simplistic ornaments and earthy accents, such as a spring wreath composed of pastel-coloured flowers and greenery. The wreath can also be made larger and used as a table centrepiece or windowsill ornament.
Many homeowners are going online to find inspiration for their wreaths with an increase in Google searches for Easter wreaths rising by 159% in the last month2.
- The perfect Easter bouquet
Fresh flowers and floral accents are the best way to mark the start of spring and spruce up a home, searches for spring flowers have increased by 102% in the past month3.
Along with the Easter lily and forsythia, daffodils and tulips are symbols of spring and each are a perfect addition for any Easter aesthetic. For more elegant touches incorporate snowdrops for the ideal Easter bouquet and display the arrangement in a simple or pastel coloured vase. To add a little more to the display of your bouquet, pop it on a table in front of a window for extra height.
- Incorporate patterns and egg accents
As well as adding decorations, there are other ways of incorporating the Easter aesthetic into your window space. Drape an Easter-themed garland around your window frame, just low enough for passers-by to see it, or place it along the windowsill.
Switch out your curtains for patterned styles such as gingham, floral or fun rabbit patterns to mark the occasion. If you have a spacious window seat try adding Easter print cushions and pastel blankets. If you don’t want to buy anything new this year, ask the little ones in your life to draw some Easter eggs to display in your windows.
- Get creative with DIY
Easter is a wonderful opportunity to express your creativity by making your own DIY window decorations. There are endless Easter craft ideas that don’t require big spending and people are already starting their handmade spring decor with TikTok views for #Eastercrafts receiving over 400 thousand views this week4.
You can put together a spring decoration collection out of ordinary items with a little added thought. Use ribbon and bright plastic eggs to hang from your windows. Or, create a stained glass window with tissue paper and vibrant tape if you’re feeling especially creative. A well-dressed window may enhance the ambiance and add a touch of refinement to your Easter decorations. Try choosing a colour palette with your projects that complements the season.
Jo Trotman, Marketing Manager at The Residence Collection commented: “Many people often overlook the window area when decorating their homes for occasions such as Easter. However, it is one of the best areas of your house to decorate in the spring by bringing the start of a new season into your home even more. By using one or all these ideas to fit your home’s interiors and window style will help you embrace the spring season and create a cohesive Easter aesthetic. ”
