The tulips are blooming, the days are getting longer, and the Easter holidays are just around the corner. Time to banish those winter blues and add festive, Easter-themed touches here, there, and everywhere—just in time for celebrations with family and friends.
“Whether you're hosting a brunch, lunch, dinner party, or egg hunt, Easter is a perfect time for families to come together and get creative,” says Shelli Gardner, CEO and cofounder of Stampin' Up!, a leading papercrafting company. “Sharing what we create is a powerful yet simple way to reach out and strengthen our relationships.”
Spring is also a time for renewal, and what better way to bring a fresh, new look to your home décor than with do-it-yourself Easter-themed design ideas from Stampin' Up!?
How about creating a “pin-worthy” table setting for your holiday meal by decorating your table with handmade table place cards, baskets, flowers, and eggs? Easter-themed stamp sets, such as the whimsical For Peeps' Sake Stamp Set, and the colourful Petal Potpourri Stamp Set with the coordinating Flower Medallion Punch, will help bring these fun projects to life.
Once the family has coloured and decorated their Easter eggs, present these wonderful treasures in adorable handmade baskets you can decorate yourself using the Berry Basket Bigz L Die and other themed embellishments.
Gardner also suggests that you bring your own style to the holiday by packaging Easter chocolate party favors in handmade boxes or kraft bags that you can decorate with themed stamps, tags, buttons, flowers, paper, and vibrantly coloured ribbons.
Handmade Easter cards are another fun family project that displays everyone's personality and taste. These custom cards made with coloured cardstock and Designer Series Paper can feature themed stamps and embellishments that show loved ones how much you care.
Make sure to celebrate the arrival of spring with special décor touches both indoors and out. Enjoy the long-awaited warmer weather by doing some gardening work and dress your flowers and plants with charming personalized Handpicked Framelits Dies with accompanying From the Garden collection stamps.
