Whether you’re planning a family dinner or an Easter egg hunt, incorporating unique lighting touches can create a memorable experience that everyone will enjoy. In this blog, we will explore some lighting ideas to help you celebrate the Easter holiday in style.
If you’re looking for something a little more vibrant, consider using bright colours like hot pink, turquoise, and lime green. These colours can be used in your Easter decorations as well as in your lighting. Try using colourful paper lanterns or LED lights in fun and playful shapes. You can even turn your existing string lights into adorable easter-egg lights using inexpensive supplies from a craft or thrift store.
For a chic and sophisticated look, try using a monochromatic colour scheme like all white or all pink. You can use different shades and textures of the same colour to create interest and depth in your decorations, like with the egg-shell speckled plates in the table setting below. For lighting, try using white string lights on white wire overhead, or candles in clear glass holders to create a romantic feel.
Do you live somewhere warm enough to dine outside for Easter? If you prefer a more natural look move dinner outside and, try using earthy tones like orange, warm white, and green. You can incorporate natural materials like wood, burlap, and twine into your Easter decorations. For lighting, try using natural woven lanterns or a jute-wrapped pendant light for some soft lighting at dinner time. And there's always the tried-and-true method of stringing some 5mm mini lights through your bushes and shrubs for added atmosphere. They will also help to light the way to the eggs in the Easter egg hunt!
Play with Florals
Easter falls just after the Spring equinox and signals new buds on trees and blooming tulips and daffodils. Incorporate the colours of nature into your decor with floral-inspired hues - think pinks, purples, and greens. You can use these colours in your table settings, floral arrangements, and even your lighting. Consider using flower-shaped string lights or paper lanterns in these colours, or pay a visit to your local craft store to create your own!
There are many different ways to incorporate lighting into your Easter decor, and there’s always a lighting design that’s perfect for you, so get creative! Have fun experimenting with different colors, decorations and placements to create an Easter holiday that’s truly magical!
