As a grown up, Easter is considerably less exciting than it was when you could count on waking up to a bounty of chocolate, jelly beans and Peeps. We’ll be going low key for this Easter, but I still wanted to have a few tricks up my sleeve to make the table pretty and festive. I’ve seen a ton of GORGEOUS ideas on Pinterest by some of my favorite bloggers (like this, this, this and this) but I wanted something a little more subtle. Enter some Rit Dye, a couple tulip blooms, and a few air plants I picked up at my local greenhouse. And an egg cracker — because that’s an actual thing. An egg cracker is an honest to goodness kitchen tool that cleanly cuts off the top of the eggshell. It’s fantastically fun.
So I kept the exterior of the eggshell white, and instead dyed the interior. After the eggs were dry, it was as simple as plopping the air plants into the eggshell and propping the arrangement in porcelain egg cups. So lovely and simple, but the perfect little touch for our Easter table. You’d better believe I expect some chocolate, come Sunday, for my effort. (And yes, we’ve eaten a LOT of eggs this week.)
