What to Consider When Purchasing Easter Decorations

Price:‌ Easter comes and goes fast. Considering these decorations will only be on display for a limited time, you'll likely want to reign it in when it comes to the price point. You may consider spending a few more dollars for handmade or one-of-a-kind pieces that you can display year after year though. Below, we gathered Easter decorations that cost under $50, with most ringing in far before that.


Durability:‌ Will your Easter festivities include little ones? How about curious pets with excitable tails? If you answered yes to either of those, you might want to choose Easter decorations that are made from more durable materials, just in case a sticky-fingered toddler decides to play with them. (In the eyes of children, many Easter decorations look like toys, so they'll be tempting.) Easter decorations can be made from a variety of materials, from delicate paper garlands to plastic centerpieces to wire baskets. Whichever you choose, consider its durability, both in case of "oopsies!" accidents and for the ability to display them for many Easters to come.


Style:‌ Easter decorations come in a variety of styles, from fun and playful to classic and elegant. Instead of mixing and matching, achieve a cohesive look by sticking to one style. Do you prefer bright and colorful or sweet and subdued? Before you click "add to cart" consider how (or if) your decorations will complement each other.


Now hop to it! Scroll on for our favorite bright and cheery Easter decorations.
