2. Look For Easter Linens – An incredibly simple way to decorate for the holiday is to put out a dish cloth or tea towel with an egg or a bunny screen-printed or stitched onto it. Look for Easter-themed tablecloths or cloth napkins. Choose Easter table linens with a delicate floral print or embroidery if you want something more subtle.

Another option is to dye intact egg shells and arrange them in a basket.

Line the basket with grass clippings or paper shreds to cushion and protect the eggs.

4. Hang a Wreath – Easter wreaths come in a range of styles, from straw wreaths wrapped in ribbon to evergreen wreaths decorated with sparkling Easter eggs. If you feel crafty, string several plastic eggs or hollowed out eggshells together end to end and shape into a circle for a home-made wreath.
