The most charming expression of the finest Lindt Chocolate, the iconic Gold Bunny was created by Lindt’s Maitres Chocolatiers in 1952 to capture the joy of Easter. Today, the Gold Bunny is a recognized symbol of Easter around the world, and a playful part of Easter traditions from arts and crafts to baking to table decor and gifting (just look to Pinterest if you have any doubt!)
This year, I wanted to incorporate the Lindt Gold Bunny in an Easter table with a little more glam for grown-ups and children alike. Because Easter is such a symbol of Spring, it’s no surprise that the majority of decor items are in pastels. I wanted to go outside the box and decorate with gold and red touches and – of course – the Gold Bunny was the perfect star of our table setting.
Touches of gold (yellow) and red were simple to incorporate with a spring themed table runner, red napkins, gold candles and flowers. Then, adding the Lindt Gold Bunny to each table setting was the perfect invitation to sit down and join together in conversation and a great meal.
The centerpiece was a delicious strawberry shortcake topped with Lindt Chocolate Bunnies as well, making the dessert the star of the day!
Our own family has always celebrated Easter in our own household, because of the nature of my husband’s work and the inability to get together with extended family far away. Still, we have some great memories at our various detachments including our first Easter at our second RCMP post a week after we had moved into our new home, and a children’s Easter egg hunt one year when we didn’t have any snow (fingers crossed for this year!) The Easter bunny doesn’t bring toys for our kids (that’s Santa’s gig) but he does bring us chocolate, and chocolate is happiness!
The Gold Bunny is available in a variety of sizes including mini (used on the cake), 50g, 100g, 200g and even a 1kg size which retails for $83.99! You can even personalize your Gold Bunny with a name or message printed on the red ribbon at select Lindt Stores across Canada.
