I love to decorate for the holidays and season. People who know me might even say that I’m obsessed with decorating my home.
The sad thing is that we have an itty bitty condo, so I don’t have the physical space to do all the things I envision in my mind that I want to do. We also don’t have a yard, so I don’t have the opportunity to decorate my yard. Maybe… someday… we can have a house with a yard.
My husband always jokes that “IF” we had a house he’d need a second job just to afford all the decorating I would do. LOL!
Now that Spring is almost here, and the weather has been getting warmer (finally!), I am REALLY into swapping out our Winter decor with cheerful, colorful, spring-like decorations. Easter is also fast approaching, so I like to decorate for the Easter holiday too.
Decorating your home to reflect the season and/or holidays does not need to “break the bank.” You can find wonderful decorations (and more!) from an unlikely source – Oriental Trading Company.
Some people that I know personally (co-worker, friends, neighbors) who are familiar with Oriental Trading Company think of it as a resource for inexpensive, bulk items (party favors and supplies, prize boxes for the classroom…). While it is true that you can buy a lot of thing in bulk from Oriental Trading Company that you can use as prizes, trick-or-treat goodies and party favors, Oriental Trading Company offers so much more.
I recently added some new holiday/seasonal decorations to our home, thanks to Oriental Trading Company.
I love fun, cute and whimsical things. They have so many to choose from. It was hard to narrow down my favorites.
Check out the delightful decorations I selected.
Easter Egg Table Decoration IN-92/454 $9.99
I keep this on the television stand in front of the TV. It’s low enough that it doesn’t interfere with the television screen.
I moved it from it’s currently location to take a photo. It wasn’t turning out right in front of the TV (the light was not good enough).
This piece is so cute and full of details – right down to the pink cheeks on the bunnies.
You can’t tell from the photo but this is a decent size too.
Sparkly Decorative Easter Eggs IN-13726055 $10.00
I really like this set. You get a dozen sparkly “eggs” in a cardboard egg holder (like the kind you might find in the store). The eggs are very colorful and sparkly. They look real!
I put these eggs in a cute Easter basket and I am using them as a centerpiece on our coffee table.
Spring Bunny Table Topper IN-92/724 $10.00
In hindsight I should have removed my Peanuts canvas print located behind the Spring Bunny Table Topper.
You can’t tell from the photo but this decorative piece is a decent size (not too big, not too small). I love the soft colors. It’s very “spring-like.”
I’m not sure what it’s made of but it’s well made and heavy (not too heavy, but it certainly won’t tip over if slightly bumped).
Lilly Long Ears IN-92/802 $18.00
This is lovely decoration. It looks like it’s made out of wood (it’s not). It’s so much bigger than I thought it would be (which was a nice surprise).
I wish the photo came out better. He/She is so pretty!
Bunnies are often associated with Easter. They can also represent Spring. I think I am going to keep this piece out year round – or at least most of the year (I’ll probably put it away during the Winter holidays).
I took a photo of her (above) next to the Easter basket filled with the eggs from Oriental Trading to give you an idea of her size. Please ignore my daughter in the background.
FYI… the wooden “LOVE” blocks in the background are also from Oriental Trading Company.
Happy Easter Wall Hangings IN-13725728 $7.48
The wall hangings come in a set of two (the two pictured above).
The hangings are super adorable. They are lightweight so you could use a single tack to hold them up (as pictured in the bottom photo with the egg).
The egg shaped one has a real fabric bow tie on the bunny’s neck.
I love the rustic look to them. They are also very colorful.
Light Green Light Up Paper Lanterns IN-13628053 $9.99 (Light Green)
These are much nicer in person than I thought they would be.
I’d love to hang them outside but I’m afraid they might blow away. For the time being we have one between the dining room and living room and my son has one in his bedroom.
The set comes with three lanterns. They light up when you insert two AAA batteries. I’m surprised by how much light they give off.
I tried to get a good photo of one of the lanterns in the dark (with the light turned on). They are really pretty and give off a nice glow. They are available in different colors too.
Plush Egg Shaped Printed Pillows IN-13627558 $10.48
My kids think these pillows are funny.
These are more for decoration than for sleeping with (although you could cuddle with them). You could even use these year round. They are egg shaped but they don’t necessarily look like Easter eggs.
Each of my kids has one and the third one in the set is on our couch in the living room. The one in the living room is green (the green one is not pictured).
