The New Beginning, The True Meaning of Easter

Easter is the most sacred Christian holiday of the year. Easter represents the day the Lord Jesus rose from the grave and began his journey, driven by the Holy Spirit until the day He ascended into Heaven to sit at the right hand of God, the Father.

This is a time to celebrate, as it is a time to start anew. This is a time when most of us “spring clean” to rid the old, cleanse your surroundings, and re-decorate. Based on the example set by Jesus Himself, here are a few decorating ideas for all to enjoy their lovely spring season.

Easter Egg Coloring Tips

Spring Colors

Most people are thinking “green” during this time of year since St. Patrick’s Day is just before the Spring Equinox. Well green is an appropriate choice since it also represents the beginning of the grass and trees coming out of hibernation. I have actually used two different shades of green ivy twisted around each other with a strand of white Christmas lights intertwined. I have tacked the healthy greenery above my plain white vertical blinds. They add just a touch of spring with a bit of soft, romantic lighting.

Of course green is not the only spring color. All pastels soften the area and give off a relaxing vibe. Pastels also remind us of babies, another springtime miracle from God. Reds, bright pinks and yellows are hues that make great accents. From the Easter perspective, in my mind’s eye, I see Jesus in dark, Royal Purple and Gold. These colors are also aesthetically pleasing.

The color scheme you decide on is totally up to you. I recommend you base your décor on the furnishings already in your home.

Make an Origami Baby Chick

The Babies, The Miracles of Life

Oh the babies! There is nothing more adorable than a baby of any species! All birth is God’s creation. All living things are His miracles. Jesus loves all babies. Spring is a time for new life, just as Jesus began his new life in Heaven.

To honor Him, decorating with cute appliqués and window dressings of Him with babies of any sort would be adorable. You could also make your own baby chicks with colored cotton balls and plastic eyes, or origami chicks (as shown to the left).

My Ivy Design

Yes this is as easy as it looks!  I simply wrapped the ivy and lights together, and carefully laid the ivy above the plastic valance and used small nails to rest the stem on.  Be sure to leave the cord of lights hanging low enough to plug in.

The Flowers and Trees

Springtime is always the perfect time to grow a garden. It wouldn’t take much work to have a beautiful array of color in your yard. It is also common to fly flags such as the Christian flag, or perhaps an Easter flag including the words, “He is Risen”! Bird feeders and wind chimes also add color, sound and activity to your yard.

Inside the home, you may use all types of floral arrangements including the colors listed above. You can have the sweet aroma of real flowers. Or, you can choose an artificial floral décor that requires little to no upkeep. I will be placing a select few flowers and buds in my ivy decoration. This year, I believe yellow, pastel blue and maybe some white baby’s breath will brighten my ivy since my furnishings are beige and pastel blue.

Flower boxes are also attractive for window decorations, and at Easter time, feel free to add a couple of glittered, plastic eggs or a ceramic bunny.

Happy Easter! Happy Spring! Happy Decorating!
