Eggcelent Thoughts

I love a good egg pun, don't you??  Today's eggstra special post is all about decorating with Easter eggs.
Our Easter-decorating mentality is pretty simple; throw a few eggs here and there and call it a day. Okay, not quite that quick, although I have to say I decorated for Easter in about 20 minutes...
In the spirit of working-with-what-you-have, I arranged similarly hued eggs in moss to create a centerpiece for our coffee table. The round wooden dish is a cheap-o IKEA purchase from last fall and the white platter is there simply because it doesn't fit easily into our cabinets; but I like the look, so it stays!
The next thing  I did was put up our Spring wreath that I made several years ago.

Here is our cake plate centerpiece, in case you missed it:
That's about all the egg-o-centric  decor in our home. However, if you are looking for something with a slightly higher degree of difficulty, here's several pictures from Easter, circa 2008.
I saw this idea in a Martha magazine and decided to replicate it. To create this look, My trusty sidekicks and I dyed eggs in various hues of the same color by keeping each egg in the dye for a different amount of time. Next, I actually dyed raffia to match the eggs, using a big pot and the same egg dye.
I arranged groups of eggs on white ceramic cake plates, bowls, platters and anything else I could find! As you can imagine, this took a lot of time and effort, but the results were really beautiful.

10 points to the lucky reader that can find all the rotten (egg) jokes in this post!

    Yes I purchased the "swirly-looking" ones and painted the plain ones and dotted one. Unfortunately, I made the wreath several years so I don't remember where I got them from!
