Aside from sneaking a peanut butter egg, one of my favorite things about Easter is entertaining! I absolutely love to entertain for Easter. From pulling together details for a charming brunch to orchestrating the egg hunt, and of course an Easter dessert bar, it's just a blast!
The candy for Easter is so festive and adorable, it really needs its own presentation. So we put together a very simple Easter dessert bar with some of our favorite Easter treats. Here are some tips that will help you create your own!
Start by prettifying your space! You can hang some simple bunting behind the table or bar. We also used ferns and greenery around the desserts to give it even more color. Dyed Easter eggs make great decor on their own. Add height by using a tiered dessert stand and small bowls for a variation of treats and candy.

We made one of our favorites: fluffy coconut cupcakes. (Martha has a great recipe.) Lemon tarts are also good to serve for Easter. There is something about lemon and coconut flavors together around springtime that I just love!

Don't forget bowls of candy in pretty pastel colors!
And macarons too!
You can also put out a giant bowl of fruit on your dessert station for the guests who enjoy healthier fare. One of my favorite Easter ideas is serving watermelon cut with bunny-shaped cookie cutters! It's always a hit! Creating a charming Easter dessert bar doesn't have to be stressful — just keep it easy, colorful with Easter pastels and be creative!
