10 Unique Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

With the advent of Pinterest, long gone are the days of the Paas Easter Egg dying kit in my house. Can anyone else relate?  Easter egg decorating is actually a craft that I feel comfortable tackling. Some of the ideas below were done by yours truly, so if I can do it, anyone can.  This year, why don’t you think outside the “carton” and try something new!

Can you believe that the eggs below are colored using whipped cream???  That is what gives them their dreamy watercolor look.  Click on the source below for the full tutorial!

These ombre dyed eggs by yours truly could not be simpler.  You simply increase the level of dye exponentially.  I opted for blue, but you could use the hue of your choice. You can read the full tutorial here.

Would you believe me if I told you that these eggs were dyed using Kool-Aid?  I love the abstract lines and if you tell your kids that Kool-Aid is involved, they might just want to try something different this year.

I love the idea of cameo eggs.  These silhouette based eggs look a little daunting, however the precise lines can be created by using contact paper.  Why not have your little cuties on your eggs this year?

These moss-covered eggs are simple but so adorable.  You could customize them any way you like.  I have so much moss lying around my house from various craft projects,  I could do soo many of these!

All of these ideas sound totally doable, right?  I am tempted to try more than one.  Well, I guess we will see how much dye, whipped cream, or Kool-Aid gets spilled in the process!

Come On Over For Easter Brunch!!

I am actually really excited for Easter this year.  My two girls are super giddy about it and that makes it even more fun.  Oh, to be a child again!!  I love entertaining and this table I set up for an Easter brunch was simple, but turned out really elegant.  I used mostly things I already owned, which makes it even better.  So, come on in and see how we roll for Easter . . .

The flowers are ranunculus, tulips, hyacinths, ornamental kale and reindeer moss.  You can’t have an Easter table without tulips, right?

The plates are a combination of basic white plates from Pottery Barn and fancy china from Vera Wang and Wedgwood.

Spring Home Tour

Spring is in the air!!  Actually, this week has felt more like winter in Northern California, but a mere technicality!  I don’t decorate per se for Spring, but I do love to add a few touches here and there.  This usually involves me buying more flowers than I can carry!  Here are some touches of Spring from around our home:
