Easter Tables and Desserts

This year we are hosting Easter dinner at our house. I'm keeping things simple this year. Sometime I hope to really go all out with fun table decor and some fancy desserts.

I've been gathering ideas in hopes that I'll be able to just a couple of the ideas to our Easter dinner. Here's a look at some of my favorites.

This simple nest and egg setting would make a nice touch on the dining table. It's a perfect way to add a bit of spring to the table without going overboard.

Love this idea of spreading giant confetti pieces on the table. There is certainly enough paper in our house to make this happen. Maybe I can talk my kids into cutting out a bunch of circles. Or maybe I'll enlist my Cameo to do the cutting. I do have one Easter table runner, but we are going to need at least two tables for Easter dinner. This may be our table runner on our second table.

Sometimes all you need is a single centerpiece to make a statement. I think I'd do lighter pastel colors, but this vase in a vase ideas is great.

Here is another vase idea that uses eggs. I like the simplicity and the mellow color palette.

Okay, now on to my favorite past about dinner, the dessert! This Salted Caramel Easter Popcorn would be great to have out as both a snack and a dessert. Caramel, chocolate and popcorn together in one place. Delicious!

This classic bird nest dessert would be easy to make and looks festive. A perfect place to hold a few of my favorite mini Cadbury chocolate eggs.

I don't think I have the patience for this dessert this year, but I really love how it looks.  It's hallow chocolate eggs filled with cheesecake. So creative!

These macaroon cookies made to look like nests look so pretty and delicious. I have the items to make these on my grocery list, so I'll have to tell you how they turn out!

This spring colored Easter cake would be pretty easy to make and would be even prettier to serve.

Although this Salted Caramel Cheesecake isn't necessarily spring themed, I think it would be a decadent choice for an Easter dessert. I'm thinking about making this for Easter. If not for Easter, then very soon.

Do you have plans for Easter? Is there a special dish that you like to make?

Wishing you a wonderful weekend with your family and friends!
