Back in 16th century Germany, children were told a nice bunny rabbit would bring them candies and eggs each Easter if they behaved well all year. So in preparation for the generous hare’s arrival, young girls and boys would create small nests out of bonnets, caps, or baskets, in which the bunny could “lay” his eggs. This custom eventually gave rise to both the traditions of the Easter Bunny and candy-laden Easter baskets!

So what’s even better than an Easter basket? Why, an entire Easter buffet, of course! Read on to learn how to design one of your own!

We filled our buffet with sweet pastel hues and even sweeter candy delicacies, like these seasonal Rolos and Easter Eggs Quins. To create a springtime display sure to delight any and all guests, be sure to stock it with jelly beans, such as these Teenee Beanee delights! And what would the holiday be without a pile of Peeps? Be sure to include some coloful Peeps Chicks and a box of Peeps Bunnies, tucked into vases or laid out on plates for good measure.

Did someone say Easter pops? If not… they should have. Because nothing is more delightful than a bunny shaped lolly! Peppy swirled suckers and delightfully shaped marshmallow pops make a great vertical addition to any candy bowl.

Eggs are another necessity during the spring. So if you must include them, why not make sure they’re delicious? Fill some bowls with colorful Brach’s Bunny Marshmallow Easter Eggs, and watch your guests melt over these oversized jelly beans! As well, Brach’s Fiesta Malted Milk Chocolate Eggs and Reese’s Mini Chocolate Easter Eggs are colorfully delectable additions to any candy dish!

What’s the number one rule of Easter decorations? Never forget the bunny! (Ok, maybe we just made that up, but it sounds good, doesn’t it?) Weighing in at a whopping two pounds, Palmer’s Big Binks is sure to be the center of attention in any buffet! Speaking of chocolate, you should never leave out Cadbury Cream Eggs — they are an Easter staple, after all!
