Easter Decorating for Every Inch of Your Home


"Easter is not simply one feast among others, but the 'Feast of feasts', the 'Solemnity of solemnities'..." (Catechism of the Catholic Church).

This is a great summary of how just about every, single Christian feels about Easter; not just Catholics.

And we all know that decorations and food are a 'must' whenever we're celebrating. So with this grand feast of Easter on hand, I will show you how you can use some simple items to decorate each and every inch of your home in celebration of this great Christian feast.

You can also make a gift of any of these home decor items to fellow Christians (family members, friends, colleagues, church members, etc.) for decorating their own homes.

Easter FRONT YARD, PORCH, LAWN

Well the first place anyone visiting your home gets to see is the front yard or lawn or porch.

Then there will be strangers who drive or walk past your home.

You can use your front yard, lawn or porch to proclaim the message of Easter!

Many people decorate their front yards, lawns and porches for Christmas with Christmas lights, Santa Claus, reindeers etc. So there’s even more of a reason to celebrate with Easter.

Easter DINING ROOM WARES

As a child, while growing up, I remember that I looked forward to an elaborate breakfast after returning from Mass on Easter Sunday.

Breakfast was late (sometime after 10 a.m.) but it was served only after decking off our dining table with the wares saved up by my Mother for special occasions.

What will your dining table look like this Easter? Here are some kitchen and dining room items to decorate your living room and dining table in order to bring in celebratory feelings of the Easter season to you, your family and your guests' dining experience.

Easter KITCHEN & PARTY ITEMS

Baking & Serving Items

Now in the afternoon on Easter Sunday, you may decide to invite some of your children’s friends, your friends and their children, some group from church or your Parish Priest or Pastor to your home for a little Easter party or get together.

So you have to make some serving decisions: What are you going to be serving your guests for Easter? What will you serve the finger foods or meals on?

A cake or cookies in the shape of a cross are a great way to extend the Easter theme to food preparation.

Easter BEDROOMS & ROOMS

Finally, here are some simple decoration ideas that can bring the Easter spirit to your bedrooms and the other remaining rooms in your home without being overwhelming.

Like this Easter pillowcase in the photo above. As I lay my head on my pillow Easter with Easter-themed pillow case, I remind myself that I can lay the burdens of my day at the foot of the Cross as I remind myself of some corresponding scripture verses from the Holy Bible:

“Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28)

"Leave your troubles with the Lord, and he will defend you; he never lets honest people be defeated." (Psalm 55:22)

      @DuaneJ: Thanks for visting and sharing your Easter plans with us, Duane_Jackson. Keeping Christ at the center is important for me because, I have nothing against easter eggs, but I think the real reason for the season has gotten lost. Have a blessed week.

      Church and back. When we were kids, we'd look forward to the Easter eggs but not anymore. Christ is bigger than all of that. I'm happy to see that you kept the focus on Him.

      we usually just do church, which I find so calming, and I still get the boys chocolates even though they're grown up, except for one who is 13
