Finding Inspiration in the Colors of EasterApril 8, 2019
If warm weather, birdsong, and a few early buds on the trees haven’t gotten you thinking spring, knowing that Easter is coming should do the trick! Bright, pastel Easter colors are a nice departure from the deep tones of winter. You will find these happy shades blooming in Easter dresses and other spring clothing, baskets with artificial straw, jellybeans, candy coatings, and seasonal sweet treats, and egg coloring kits. You can even see it in colorful and bright Easter embroidery designs to get you in the spirit of Spring and get artsy! So, while you’re preparing for Easter egg hunts, church services, and chocolate overload, it’s great to know you can add bright, safe LED lighting to your decorations-in colors that perfectly match the season.
Practically every color of the rainbow can be incorporated into Easter decorating, from the colored, beautiful metal prints by Bumblejax to funky colored table clothes and tableware, but your selections might be different depending on whether your design focus is the Christian Church calendar, the Easter Bunny, or a combination of both.
Color is used in Christian worship to represent a number of elements important to the faith. White (purity or victory), red (Christ’s blood), green (life), purple (royalty), and rose (joy) are used throughout the year, while at Easter other colors are added, including blues, pastels, and even metallics. There is a large palette to decorate with, and rich meaning behind each hue.

We offer a variety of bulb shapes in many colors to suite all multiple holiday and non-traditional decorating needs. Teal, pink, purple, red, green, yellow, orange, blue and many other colors in between. The pastels associated with popular bunny-themed celebrations are also inspired by the new life that blossoms in spring. From there, they find their way into spongy marshmallow confections (that people seem to either love or hate), take over the color schemes of candy favorites, and fill clothing stores with promises of warm sunny weather, prompting homeowners to check that their AC is working in preparation for the heat and, if they need a repair, getting in touch with professionals, like the team at The Wirenut (https://thewirenut.com/services/air-conditioning-repair/), so that the work can be done before the heat really arrives.
Whether you’re designing a tablescape for home, family, or church gatherings, or just brightening up your seasonal décor (inside or outside), colored lights are a great choice, and LEDS are the safest and most economical.
The cold of winter may have made you wonder if spring would ever come. But Easter promises it will (if it hasn’t warmed up where you are yet)-and an array of happy, inspiring colors awaits! Not just Easter eggs, jellybeans, and baskets, but colorful and customizable LED holiday lighting that will stay in fashion year round!
