In The Studio: Capture the Spirit of Easter with Chalkboard China
As they say, Easter is on its way! Whether you’ve been busy putting together the perfect Easter dinner menu, crafting up cute crafts with the kids, or contemplating what hues of pastels you’re considering for home decor, we want to help you be the most happening hostess on the block this holiday with an Easter basket full of ideas below:
1. Easter Floral Arrangement
Pretty floral arrangements not only represent the freshness and rebirth of spring, but Easter decorating often calls for flowers like lilies and tulips. Try making an arrangement with the two together or simply as a single flower arrangement. Use either our Medium Vase, Large Vase, Rectangle Vase, Cylinder Vase or Daisy Vase, or a mix of them all, for beautiful home decor or a cheerful centerpiece. You can add fun messages to the vases like “Hippity, Hoppity”, “Here comes the Easter Bunny”, or draw traditional Easter symbols like carrots, bunnies, Easter eggs and crosses for personalized decor. Plus, using colors from sweet COLORS collection, like Honeysuckle, Fern, Plum or Seaside, can help to incorporate the added liveliness the season and the holiday both bring to the table.
Learn how to craft the perfect arrangement from Better Homes & Gardens. And, our friends at House Beautiful, share other unique and beautiful flower arrangements to adorn the Easter dining table.
2. Easter Tabletop Decor
We all know Easter egg dying is a MUST for the holiday! It’s a fun activity to do as a family and the dyed eggs can then be used for home decor. For a twist on decorating with dyed Easter eggs, either use our Chalkboard China Plate or Charger in one of our bright COLORS, make a paper Easter basket to hold the eggs (see how here), and then arrange the colorful eggs within your paper nest. This can be used as a centerpiece or with each place setting at your Easter lunch or dinner.
3. Easter Basket Goodies
Whether you’re throwing an Easter brunch for your family and friends or looking for a cute Easter basket gift, our Daisy Vases make for great party favors and Easter surprises from the Easter Bunny. For Easter brunch, our Daisy Vases can be a substitute for a place card. Write your guest’s name on the vase, tie a pastel or patterned ribbon around the top, and plop in a single flower of your choice. Then, place the vase on the plate or at the top of the place setting. Let your guests take the vases home as a special Easter surprise! Another idea for our Daisy Vases is to include a blank one in your little one’s Easter basket along with a couple of pieces of colorful chalk. They can then draw all over the Daisy Vase and you’ll have a very special, memorable addition of decor in your home this holiday.
Now that you know you’ll be the most happening Easter hostess this year, we’d like to wish all of our friends, families, and fans a very Happy Easter!
