Easter will be here soon, and many of us are looking forward to the holiday with family traditions in mind. Pastel Easter dresses, candy-filled Easter baskets, and dyed eggs are just a few ways people celebrate the holiday. In this guide, we discuss some strategies to help you build the perfect Easter basket for the special people in your life. Whether you’re celebrating together or at a distance, Easter candy from Wockenfuss can make the holiday extra sweet. Don’t celebrate Easter? These tips are excellent for putting together any gift basket!
Start with a Theme and a Good Basket
While a theme isn’t strictly necessary, choosing a unifying color or idea can make assembling Easter baskets and other gifts much easier. The result is a beautiful, cohesive basket full of items that serve a purpose and make sense. Rabbits, eggs, and pastel colors are typical for Easter baskets, but getting creative can open a whole new world of possibilities. You may consider making a coffee-themed basket with chocolate-covered espresso beans, coffee truffles, and a new mug. The kids in your life might enjoy a beach-themed basket with milk chocolate crabs, chocolate-filled seashells, and gummi blue raspberry sharks. The baskets you choose aren’t limited to traditional baskets, either — an oversized mug would be a cute container for a coffee-themed basket, and a sand pail and shovel are ideal for a beach-themed basket. With creativity and delicious Easter candy from Wockenfuss, anything is possible!
Choose Easter Candy, Fillers, and Other Items with the Layout in Mind
Presentation is everything when it comes to Easter baskets. When selecting your Easter candy, toys, gifts, and fillers, be sure to consider the physical layout of your basket. Try to assemble components with a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. A box of vanilla butter cream eggs or dark chocolate minikins makes an excellent starting point, and chocolate foil chicks and bunnies can add a fun element to your basket. Consider using shredded paper or raffia to fill particularly large baskets. Don’t forget to fill any empty spaces with pastel malted milk eggs, fruit cordials, and milk, dark, or white chocolate foil eggs.
Assemble Your Easter Basket!
The final step is to take an artful approach to Easter basket assembly. Throwing a bunch of Easter candy into a basket works, but taking care when placing and securing each item can make your Easter baskets look breathtaking. Nestle each item into a nest of shredded paper or raffia. Wrapping the basket in paper, tissue, or cellophane can help keep things secure (and secret!) in transit. Finally, add some ribbon or a bow as a finishing touch.
