Easy Decorating with Easter Eggs
Beyond the baskets
–Francine Segan, Betty Food+Home Editor
Ah, Easter eggs. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…
1. Piled high in pretty napkin-lined basket as a centerpiece. Great as both an Easter brunch decoration AND to eat for brunch.
2. Set out in a cluster on the table in all those cute egg cups I’ve been collecting at tag sales.
3. Decorating a sturdy branch set in a heavy vase. You can make your own by attaching ribbon with glue to an empty decorated shell or buy them ready-made from Pottery Barn.
4. Empty decorated egg shells can be made into little mini candle holders. Just shave off the excess wax from a small candle until it easily fits into the shell, or purchase ready-made egg candles.
5. Nestled into yummy Easter Bread, either bought in a bakery or made at home using refrigerated supermarket cinnamon rolls. Cluster the rolls around a few hard-boiled colored eggs, and bake.
