Vintage Style Easter Decorating Ideas!

When I was a kid, my parents went to great lengths to make Easter one of the most special holidays. They set up an egg hunt to lead us to our hidden Easter baskets. We would run around with glowing excitement, looking for the ‘golden egg’, aka the Easter egg that held twenty dollars.

 As the youngest, my brother and sister would always help me spot the more obvious eggs, but it was only later in life I was able to acquire this ‘golden egg’ before my older siblings.

Even today, as I’m about enter my 25th year and my brother, his 30th, this special spring tradition continues.  Of course, it’s more of a silly tradition but I’m very fond of the time that we get to spend as a family laughing about the infamous golden egg.  My desire to further our traditions and these memories inspired me to host a Welcome Spring/Easter Brunch for my family and friends.

Easter boasts a variety of pastel flowers and whimsical décor.  I’m seeking to create a special celebration that combines those whimsical pastels with unique vintage décor for my DIY Celebration.

I envision an apothecary jar candy bar, filled with an assortment of jelly beans, macaroons, and colored eggs. Assorted cake stands at different heights with chocolate rabbits from my local chocolatier, and delicious snacks. I also envision a mimosa bar with delightful pink paper straws to give the glasses some sparkle.

As for my plans for table décor: I’m dreaming of assorted milk glass vases filled with my favorite pink peonies on a burlap table runner, eyelet paper lanterns, and hanging paper pom poms to give the space some depth. I love utilizing paper lanterns for all kinds of décor ideas but especially at parties. The soft lighting creates the perfect ambiance for any gathering, and the best part about it is you can reutilize the paper lanterns in your home for fresh DIY decorating.

At all of my parties I set up a camera on a tripod and hang a 20’ by 20’ gold frame for festive photo ops! This is one of my favorite party decorating ideas as you can customize your party theme by the supplies you use! For my Easter brunch I’m utilizing two gorgeous pink pastel lace parasols -- my niece and best friend will love these!  I’m also planning on making a fresh rose garland with fishing line as apart of the photo backdrop! As a party favor I'm filling up twenty favor bags with jelly belly beans. Yum!

We would love to see photos of your celebrations: be sure to #LunaBazaarDecor
