My Easter Spread
April 16, 2010 § Leave a comment
Originally I had planned to do a full out jelly bean bar – that is until I saw the crazy price of jelly beans! Quite costly, I couldn’t believe chocolate candy, which I’m more partial to anyways, came in cheaper than Jelly Beans! So I nixed it and just focused on some of my favorites, jelly beans were involved to though! My little candy bar featured Peeps, 2 different types of jelly beans, Reese’s Pastel Eggs (YUM) and Whopper’s Robin’s Eggs!
I’ve got a sweet nephew who is allergic to peanuts, so I had to make sure that I labeled what everything was so that people knew what he could and couldn’t eat…the Reese’s eggs were out (yay more for me!)
Each place setting had a little egg bowl with some pink grass and a yummy chocolate bunny for guests to eat.
I made the fruit kabobs as an app…for some reason they didn’t fly off the tray as I would have thought – but the left overs made a great snack/breakfast for me for the next week!
I got this punch recipe from one of the girls on thenest.com message board! It was delicious and a big hit. It was a can of pineapple juice, frozen concentrate OJ thawed out, and champagne. I also added some frozen pineapple slices and cut up oranges to make it look pretty!
A week before Easter I bought a pre-packaged salad at Wegman’s and I fell in love! I decided to recreate it in bulk…super easy, spinach, feta & Parm cheese, dried cranberries, and croutons. The dressing was a raspberry vinaigrette.
You obviously can’t forget the entree, Ham! This was a Costco ham with the honey glaze – aways a hit.
