Pretty Easter Garnishes

Easter garnishes can be simple to make and can dress up your serving platters. I just ran across these photos that I took at a previous year’s Easter party at our house. I’ve not yet shared them on my blog. I thought these photos might give you some ideas for garnishes that you can use to beautify your next Spring party.

When planning a party or event that has a color theme, consider including foods that have colors that harmonize with your color scheme. We often plan the colors of the table settings, cloths, flower, etc. But how often do we consider how look of  the food can add to the color theme?

Buffet table with Easter garnishes

Here is our Easter table decorated with some fruit and vegetable garnishes and radish bouquet.

For my Easter garnishes and fruit tray,  I used the color theme of pastel pinks, yellow, and greens. I added a leek brush flower to the serving tray of sliced turkey. Look at the sliced ham platter and you’ll see leek ribbon flowers and a purple onion flower in the sliced ham serving platter. On the fruit tray, the pineapple was cut into the shape of butterflies. I put the deviled eggs on a 3 tiered served and topped it with a simple radish bouquet like the one taught in my free lesson.

It’s easy to add a curly green onion garnish as I did to top the potato salad. This is one of the lessons in my Vegetable and Fruit Carving 101 Course for Beginners.

This pretty onion flower is available as a free lesson on my website. The leek ribbon flower is one of the lessons in my Hearts and Roses video lessons. These Easter garnishes were on the sliced ham platter.

Both the soft purple color and the light green of the leek ribbon flower is in keeping with the pastel Easter color theme.

I displayed the deviled eggs (that match the pastel color theme) on a 3 tired dish display and topped with a radish bouquet.
