While your Christmas decorations have been taken down for some time now and are most probably safely stored away in the loft gathering dust for another year, now is the time to quite literally shake the cobwebs of winter away and to start preparing your home for Easter!
A growing trend in the UK, many people up and down the country now decorate their homes for springtime, especially in the run up to Easter celebrations. Gone are the days of lugging boxes out of the loft but once a year!
To help you bring a fresh springtime vibe to your home for Easter, we’ve prepared a selection of our favourite Easter figurines and homewares, as the Easter Bunny prepares for his big arrival, as well as being loved the whole year through (they’re definitely too gorgeous to spend the rest of the year locked in the loft with the Christmas tree)…
At Easter time, some bunny definitely loves you, so why not spread your love for Easter around your home with this gorgeous piece from Jim Shore? Forever My Honey Bunny Figurine featuring two of Jim Shore’s adorable rabbits designed using his signature quilting style, inspired by American Folklore, and is sure to add a fresh touch of spring to your Easter display.
And speaking of decorative displays, what would be an Easter table ready for a seasonal feast of fresh roast lamb, mint sauce and all the trimmings, without a stunning centre piece for the table? Create wow-factor for your Easter Sunday lunch guests with this beautiful piece from Jim. A Bonnet of Easter Blessings captures the fun and festivities of the Easter Bank Holiday while perfectly depicting a variety of animals that are synonymous with spring. From ducks and chicks to blue birds and bunny rabbits, this pretty piece will look right at home this Easter in your home.
If rabbits aren’t quite your thing and you aren’t into the idea of the Easter Rabbit hopping along delivering lots of chocolatey treats, then perhaps chicks are a more appropriate sign of springtime. If so, you will love Jim Shore’s Mini Standing Chick! Super sweet with long delicate legs, little yellow beak, and delicate pastel quilting pattern to its wings. Display this little chick on a shelving unit, sideboard or even as part of a wider Easter-themed arrangement. Wherever you choose to stand this little chick, it’s sure to have a big impact and bring a touch of spring to any home.
Nothing signifies the start of spring like Easter. It’s when the weather turns warmer, the daffodils start to push up from their sleepy beds in the ground, and wonderful wildlife come out of hibernation. What better way to celebrate the start of the new season this springtime then, than with these beautiful Peter Rabbit items to decorate your home for Easter?
For Beatrix Potter fans, we have a delightful figurine featuring everyone’s favourite bob-tailed bunny rabbit. The Mrs. Rabbit, Flopsy & Peter Rabbit figurine from Border Fine Arts is a lovely way you to add some extra cuteness to your Easter display this year. After all, nothing says ‘Easter’ like families coming together to enjoy Easter egg hunts, gathering around the dinner table on Easter Sunday, followed by long lazy walks in the hazy springtime sunshine. With this piece, Peter Rabbit and his sister Flopsy can been seen peering into Mrs. Rabbit’s wicker basket which appears to be full of eggs – a fun and unique way to bring a touch of Easter to the home for the whole family to enjoy!
And keeping with the theme of family, how about this piece as another sweet yet seasonal way to decorate for Easter this year? A lovely figurine from Border Fine Arts featuring Jemima Puddle-Duck with Ducklings, this piece draws on the illustrations from Beatrix Potters’ family-favourite stories, showing Jemima surrounded by her little yellow chicks on a bed of lushes green grass. A perfect sentiment for spring!
Easter signifies the start of new beginnings. From the Biblical stories of Christ’s resurrection to the new life that starts to spring up in the wild as animals come out from their winter’s hibernation. Add a touch of the outdoors to your home this Easter with this lovely piece from Enchanting Disney. Pretty Flower featuring Bambi, Thumber and of course little Flower in a woodland scene, gazing at the ground and admiring all the foliage around their feet. This piece is perfect for Disney fans looking for classic way to decorate their homes for Easter.
Finally, if springtime is making you look for a fresh new way of displaying your favourite Disney characters, then look no further than this piece from acclaimed artist, Romero Britto. Romero’s Thumper Mini Figurine features Bambi’s cute little sidekick who can pack-a-punch with his hind legs, rolling on his back in a fit of laughter. Unlike the usual grey, white and pink tones that you would expect to see with depictions of Thumper, this piece applies Britto’s signature style of pop art to the rabbit’s face and torso, using spots, line work and bright springtime colours of purples, yellows and blues to really bring this piece to life. A fresh take on a cult classic and guaranteed to brighten up any Easter display!
