I love eggs.
Any kind, really: the Cadberry chocolate kind, the dyed kind, the painted kind….
I think we should keep them around all of the time, not just at Easter. They’re beautiful and delicate and something that would never survive two weeks at our house but something I love nonetheless. The Saurus is still too little to decorate his own eggs. Giving a one-year-old a bowl of dye sounds like the worst idea ever. He found one of my ink pads in my desk once and that was bad enough. Plus, he really just doesn’t care. So for this year, we have mama-decorated real eggs and plastic ones for him to find. And as much as I love decorating eggs, I didn’t want to devote a ton of time to this project, so I kept it simple and monogrammed them. I just used regular blown eggs (here’s a great tutorial that doesn’t use any special equipment if you need one) and monogrammed them with a gold sharpie. Yup, just that simple! It took maybe one minute and I love the way they turned out and they look so cute on our table. The rest of my decor is from World Market’s Easter collection-I love that store.
