This Easter egg fruit tray is the perfect way to dress up your table for lunch, brunch or even dinner. Serve fresh fruit in a festive way! Best of all the platter I bought was from the Dollar Tree so it was affordable! Skip the fruit salad, and create a simple and delicious fresh fruit tray for your holiday entertaining. Let me share how to make an Easter egg fruit tray in a matter of minutes.
I picked up a couple of these egg-shaped serving trays I found in our Dollar Tree party section. I am going to use these for making a cheese and cracker platter along with a fresh fruit platter for our Easter party. Affordable, easy, no fuss platters you can assemble ahead of time to pull out from the fridge and serve your guests!

Can I Prep This Easter Egg Fruit Tray Ahead of Time
Absolutely! Slice and prep all your fruit and assemble in the tray. Then wrap in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and tuck in the fridge. When ready to serve remove from fridge and serve!
What Can I Pair With My Fruit Tray
I love having fresh fruit out for holidays. It is a nice sweet treat that can help calm the sugar rush from all the candy and chocolate covered goods. Let me share some fun dippers you might enjoy!
- Whipped Cream
- Melted Chocolate (like fondue)
- Fruit Dip (Raspberry Fruit Dip or Salted Caramel are two favorites for our family)
- Flavored Yogurt
Or if you prefer, skip any dips, and just set out the fruit! With the colorful arrangement, it will lure your friends and family in!
How to Assemble Easter Egg Fruit Tray
I simply dice up the fruit that needs to be cut, and prep and wash all the other fruit. Then slowly add in layers of fruit, to give it that Easter egg decorative look. You can pick and choose any fruit you want! These are just fruits that we have on hand and our family enjoys, but feel free to swap it with any fruit that will hold up over time and you enjoy.
Fruits like bananas and apples will brown after they are cut for a bit. If you go that route, maybe brush some lemon juice over the top to help from browning. Or skip that kind of fruit and buy fruit that does well at room temperature.
