It wasn’t until a few months ago that I I realized I hadn’t created any Easter content during the first eight years of IBC’s existence. How was that even possible? Clearly, I have made up for it this year with lots of festive ideas, decor, recipes, and bunnies.

With the holiday less than a week away, I thought I’d put together a recap of all of the Easter fun we’ve had on the blog these past two months. I’m also bringing in a few of my favorite ideas from blogger friends to give you a total of 16 Wow-Worthy Easter Ideas and Recipes.

Whether you’re hosting Easter, heading to family or friends, or just enjoying the day by yourself, I hope one or two of these ideas makes its way into your home or tummy. And if you don’t do Easter, with a few simple tweaks, any of these ideas could make the perfect way to celebrate spring.

Let’s get to it! (Click on the image or text in teal to be directed to the recipe / red.)


1. To start, I must mention my favorite sugar-overload-inspired treat: Easter Dessert Kabobs! Skewered in a rainbow of sweetness, it’s a taste of all of your favorites.
