From quilt blocks to bunny ears, let’s take a country approach to Easter Sunday
(And Welcome if you are joining in today from the Spring Blog Hop! Happy to have you here!)
Growing up, Easter Sunday was always spent at my Mamaw’s house in the country.
Hunting for plastic eggs in our pastel dresses, gathering around her big wooden table for supper, counting the yellow daffodils bloomed on the hill… it was like a storybook in my mind, simply filled with love.
So when I think of Easter, I think of a peaceful Sunday in the country.
I hope these little depictions pull you into Mamaw’s country storybook. Keep scrolling for my top 10 Country Cottage Easter ideas.
1. Place Eggs on Candlesticks
I picked up these Alabaster eggs (and basket) at a thrift shop for $10! They are made from marble. Placing them on a candlestick makes a perfect table piece or shelf decor. The candlestick adds some oomph, a pedestal for the egg. So sweet! You could use any decorative egg in place of the stone eggs.
2. Create a Spring Bunting from an old quilt
I recently found a set of cutter quilts on Etsy, and I’ve had so much fun creating simple projects with them. This bunting is full of Spring color and pattern. I hung it from my dining room peg rail for an added whimsy Easter touch. Country homes can’t have too many quilts…
I made this bunting by cutting out ten triangles, all the same size. I, then, sewed a piece of white double-fold bias tape with the top edge of the triangle inside. It was a single, straight line of sewing. My kind of project!
3. Add candy to mason jars before arranging flowers
Blue mason jars will forever be a classic staple in my home. Nothing says “country” like a mason jar! I filled my jars with Cadbury eggs and Whoppers before arranging faux flowers in them. You could also add jelly beans. The candy adds so much colorful charm. All of the faux flowers I used are from my local Walmart.
4. Switch out some art pieces for Spring
I LOVE Spring art pieces…anything that depicts birds or bunnies is my favorite. I recently ordered these Audubon prints from PhotoWall Sweden. They also printed the bunny canvas for me, after I downloaded the image from an Etsy Shop.

5. Add bunny figures to your China Cabinet or table
The obvious Easter decor is bunny figurines! How many do you have? I found the large bunnies at Hobby Lobby (now sold out). The mini bunnies are from the Target dollar spot.
Decorating my china cabinet with a few seasonal knick-knacks brings me joy; just a little personality amongst the pink & green dishes.
6. Sew a Bunny Pillow from scrap fabric
During the wet, cold days of spring, I like to sew. I made this bunny for my daughter, who is obsessed with stuffed animals.
To make the bunny: I drew a template on paper, cut out two matching pieces of fabric. Then with the fabric faces pinned together, I sewed the edges of the fabric leaving a small section unsewn under the tail. I flipped the bunny to right-side-out, filled it with stuffing, and then sewed the opening closed. It was a very simple project.

7. Add some seasonal tea towels and throw pillows
One of the simplest ways to bring Easter cheer is by adding a few holiday linens. I am completely in love with VHC Brands. I paired their Easter egg pillow with my Mamaw’s crocheted afghan. Sitting on the porch swing reminds me of her- and the linens just add that cozy feel.
VHC also has cute tea towels made with a flour sack type fabric. The Easter Greetings towel sets are available here from Amazon.
8. Add a cute bunny mat to your porch
Hop on in! Wow your guests on Sunday by sprucing up the porch. These Ruggable liners are so simple to switch with every season, and they keep your porch clean. I love that I can wash away muddy boot prints with ease- just toss the liner and rug top in the washing machine.
9. Use birds and nests to add more natural spring charm
To me, spring is all about reviving ourselves back to nature. After being cooped up all winter long, I am ready for the flowers and the trees, the birds and fresh air. Add those elements inside your home too- bring the “country” inside.
10. Add seasonal florals- tulips and lilacs
My Mamaw had the most lush flower beds; bulbs and flowering trees all coming to life at Easter. She had a large lilac bush that bloomed right beside of her front walk every spring. Its fragrance still reminds me of home to this day. Until I get a lilac bush of my own, I like to use faux lilacs from Nearly Natural. I have both their lilac stems and lilac wreaths.
The Easter holiday can mean many things to many people. To me, it means rejoicing in His Presence on His countryside. Enjoy the birds and the flowers and the gifts that are given to us. As Mamaw would remind: “Let everything you do, be done with love.”
Wishing you many memories with your family! Happy Easter, friends!
