Remember the way we used to color eggs when we were kids? Wire dippers, a tab of dye in a cup of water, and maybe some crayons or stickers if you had a really “crafty” mom. These days Easter eggs have gone a little wild.
Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of beauty to behold in the tradition, and the endless creative things people come up with truly amaze me.
I just don’t want you to feel like you are a failure if your Easter table doesn’t have marbleized decoupage flower eggs that you drilled with a power tool and emptied out with your own mouth before placing on the table.
If you’re pressed for time, or if DIY just isn’t in your vocabulary, rest assured you can still have a beautiful pile of Easter eggs on your table.
For my table last year, I went back to basics. To create this tablescape, I used a classic Paas egg coloring kit ($1.50 at Target), and tossed everything but the dipper and the dye tabs. I dipped my eggs just once, a few eggs in each color, and let them cool on paper towels. To display, I grouped like colors together in small whiteware dishes. The end!
