Your concrete countertops look beautiful on their own, but they’re begging to be decked out for the Easter holiday this month. Easter decorations are a fun way to celebrate the reason for the season, to welcome in spring, and to bring a breath of fresh air to your home. Extending these themes into the kitchen lets you enjoy them all day long.
The simplest way to include Easter decorations on your countertops is to bring in a pretty Easter basket and fill it with pretty things. Start off with a bed of easter grass, and work your way up from there. The possibilities for this project are endless, but here are a few of my favorite Easter fillers:
Egg: A go-to item for any Easter kitchen, eggs are the perfect filler for your basket. You can choose traditional pastels, or give it a little twist by using brown paper grass, and naturally colored eggs. Candy eggs are welcome in every family as well.
Fresh Fruit: Your kitchen easter basket is a great place to keep your selection of fresh fruit this time of year. When nestled on a bed of Easter grass, fruit looks festive and appetizing.
Fresh Flowers: Nothing says springtime like a pretty basket bursting at the seams with flowers. Choosing early season varieties like daffodils, tulips, or lilies gives the arrangement a real Easter feel.
Festive Jars and Canisters
A row of clear glass canisters or jars filled with Easter delights can be lined up across your countertop for a lovely display. You can fill them with anything you want, from simple easter grass to pastel colored marbles. Of course, Easter eggs are always a good choice, and so is candy. Chocolate eggs or mixed jellybeans are easy to find, and easy to replenish as your family and friends steal a bite. One of my favorite fillings is a bunch of marshmallow Peeps. They look adorable all mixed in there haphazardly. Fruit can also be placed in the jars if you’re looking for something less overt. Citrus like lemons and limes are perfect for easter, and so are yellow and green apples.
Don’t Forget the Bunnies
What’s Easter without bunnies, after all? There are so many cute bunny decorations for Easter, and there’s no reason why the little guys can’t invade your kitchen countertops too. Bunny candles set out on the bar are a nice touch that doesn’t take up too much space. The ceramic variety can be found ranging in size from salt and pepper shakers to bunny-themed serving platters and cannisters. Even a few bunny figurines hopping amongst your other decorations will be a nice addition to your countertops, and will make you smile all month long.
