As I watch the snow fall I am dreaming of warmer weather – Spring, flowers and Easter. I’m getting my house dusted off and brightened up with Easter eggs, bunnies, flowers, and colorful candy for Easter. Oriental Trading has everything you need for Easter. They sent me some Easter goodies so I can show you my idea of what you can use to decorate for Easter.
For the Easter Basket I used a wired white-washed metal basket I found at Homegoods a few years ago. This type of basket is versatile and can be used for other events and also brought out year after year. I stuck with an orange and green theme for my Easter decorations. You could easily turn this into a pastel or bright multi-colored Easter and Spring theme.
My Easter Supplies from Oriental Trading
I started with the traditional plastic eggs but only used the green and orange ones. These large eggs from Oriental Trading are already filled. Each one comes with a small toy and a sticker. They also sell eggs filled with candy. You get 24 filled eggs. They are great for Easter egg hunts too.
These Lime Green and Orange Mini Lollipops are fun and swirly. Each 2″ sucker is on a 4″ plastic stick and each is individually wrapped. You get 24 piece in each box. Mix and match them. They come in lots of colors and flavors.
Buttermints work for any occasion and since they were wrapped in fun papers that matched my theme I decided to add them as well. You don’t always have to give chocolate at Easter. You get approximately 108 pieces in each box and they are fat-free, gluten-free, kosher and Made in the U.S.A.
These Peas and Carrots gummies had to be the most fun candy I ordered. You can fill their Easter baskets with these fun Peas & Carrots Easter Candy Fun Packs and kids will love eating their veggies when they are really Easter candy instead. You get 18 packs in the box and each package contains around 15 peas and carrot candies.
Just a note on the Moss Table Runner. It is made out of real moss and comes apart quite easily. If you want to use it again, it should be handled with care. It looks absolutely wonderful on my display though so I highly suggest it.
Moss gives you an earthy vibe and beautiful green color while also adding a bit of unexpected texture to your details. Whether you’re planning a romantic wedding or a chic birthday party, this 14″ x 48″ table runner can tie your theme together.
I opted for a nice 7″ x 5″ Jar with lid and used some of my own glasses to display the stick candies. The jar is well-made and also has a rubber seal in the lid. This will get used over and over throughout the year. Fill it with sea shells during the summer and tiny Christmas balls and lights for the holidays. Another good option is this Glass Jar Set
You could literally spend hours on the Oriental Trading site looking at everything they offer. My advice is to pick a color scheme and go from there, otherwise you won’t be able to make any decision and might wait too late.
