Easter decorations for the home typically involve dyed eggs, pastel colors, spring themes, bunny rabbits, and cute baby animals. Flower and butterfly decorations from Bugs-n-Blooms fit very well with these decorations. The wide variety of colors in the different styles of decorations can match any Easter decorating scheme.
Decorating ideas for Easter and spring themes often include wreaths. Handmade wreaths can be used to decorate a door, hang over a mantlepiece, or used as a wall decoration. To make the creation of a wreath easy, bases made of grape vine, straw, wire, or foam can be purchased at a local craft store.
Foam or straw wreaths can be wrapped in fabric or ribbon to provide a colorful base. Wire frames could be covered with moss, woven through with small twigs, or completely covered in a decoration such as butterflies or plastic eggs. Moss can also be used on grapevine wreaths, though leaving some of the vines visible often creates a nice, rustic effect.
Bugs-n-Blooms butterflies are available in a variety of bright and pastel colors for decorating a spring wreath. The decorations come in a variety of sizes. Small butterflies, which measure 7- by 5-inches or 5- by 4-inches depending on the style, would work well as a focal point on a wreath. Mini butterflies measuring 1-inch, 2-inches, or 3-inches would work well as accents for other decorations, such as a tiny plush Easter bunny.
Several varieties of spring bulbs can be planted in pots and encouraged to bloom early indoors. This is known as forcing. The easiest bulbs to force are small daffodils, hyacinth, and crocus. Larger daffodils, tulips, and dutch iris can also be forced.
Forcing spring bulbs starts with a chilling period. Bulbs sold as “pre-chilled” can be potted up immediately. Otherwise, the bulbs need to be kept at a temperature between 35 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 to 15 weeks, depending on the bulb variety. Paperwhite daffodils and amaryllis do not require chilling. Bulbs will flower within 2 to 3 weeks after chilling and potting up.
After chilling, the bulbs can be planted in pots filled with commercially available potting mix. Plant several bulbs in the same pot, close but not touching, and cover with soil until the tops of the bulbs are just visible. To add a little extra color, pots for forced bulbs can be decorated with with Bugs-n-Blooms decorations. Mini bumblebees, dragonflies, and ladybugs can all be glued to a flower pot.
The iconic Easter egg can be dressed-up with a little help from Bugs-n-Blooms decorations. The smallest mini butterflies could be pasted directly onto an Easter egg. Easter eggs could also be painted with flower designs, and then arranged as decorations with artificial flowers that complement the painted flowers. For easier decorating, flower stickers can be used on the dyed eggs.
Bugs-n-Blooms flower decorations pair nicely with Easter eggs to decorate a shelf, hall table, or mantlepiece. These flowers come in a variety of sizes, from extra-large flowers for hanging on a wall, to small flowers that can be used in a décor vignette.
