Adorable and Easy Easter Ideas  

As prepared by Jackie Fo

Are you planning an Easter soiree? Well, you’re in luck.


Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or brunch, I’ve got two eggcellent ideas for your Easter table! These ideas are easy, economical, and adorable. It’s pretty much how I roll.

Nest Egg Cupcakes




For these Nest Egg Cupcakes, you can use any flavor of Betty Crocker SuperMoist cake mix you like. These cupcakes get their character and flavor from toasted coconut and robin egg Easter candies.

Make cupcakes and let them cool. Toast a whole bunch of coconut flakes by spreading them out on a rimmed baking sheet and baking for about seven minutes until they start to get a little brown.

Safety note: Do not accidentally drop the entire tray of coconut flakes in your oven. You will not be able to get them all out, and you will start an oven fire that will ruin your happy baking day. Nothing gets your blood pumping like smelling smoke and opening the oven to see a small coconut fire a-blazing. Ah, memories.

Frost the cupcakes and top with toasted coconut.

Place three robin egg candies in the center of each one, and voilà: You’ve created adorable cupcakes that will impress your guests. For more on these cupcakes, check out my blog post.

Easter Tree




If you’re looking for an easy Easter centerpiece, I have just the thing for you. Make an Easter tree from branches and decorative Easter eggs! Let me show you how:

Go outside and collect a few good-looking tree branches. Better yet, if you have kids, let them do it. They’re outside, you’re inside with your feet up—it’s a win-win.

Purchase or make decorated Easter eggs. I got my adorable polka dot eggs for about $5. These are also adorable!

Place the branches in the vase and hang the eggs. Decorate with a pretty ribbon.

Stuff the top of the vase with decorative grass for the final touch.

So don’t stress! With these Easter ideas (and the bonus tips), you will have the cutest table around.
