Decorating Your Home For Easter

Outdoors

Few people string lights up outdoors for Easter. But a great way to greet guests on this special day is to have a string on the front door in the shape of a colorful egg or bunny. You can even make a nice design in the shape of an Easter lily.

It's no accident that Easter is close to the beginning of Spring when the Earth comes alive. This ancient festival began as a celebration of fertility and new beginnings. You can help show that by planting some Easter flowers in yellow, red and blue - all traditional colors.

Easter Flower Gift Ideas for Everyone

Start the season off right by selecting some bright tulips. Yellow, orange, pink or purple, they are available in all the Easter colors. Put them in a brightly colored pail and decorate the handle with a ribbon and an Easter tag in the shape of a bunny.

A bucket of blossoms isn't the only way to deliver those delightful Easter flowers, though. A beautiful coffee cup full of violet plants can be more than just petals on a plate. The cup itself can reflect the fine color of these welcome messengers of Spring.

Great Halloween Gift Ideas

Lots of people use the occasion to give a gift to another family's dog. After all, parents often think to buy great costumes for the kids but Rover would like to join in the fun, too! A spooky ghost sweater or a glow-in-the-dark hourglass covering works well. Well-behaved dogs are also a good thing to bring along on trick or treat trips around the neighborhood, adding an element of safety to the experience. A glow-in-the-dark leash decorated with pumpkins is the perfect gift choice then.
