Easter Eggs

On Saturday I had a few friends over for an Easter egg decorating party.  We started with quiche, baked goods, and mimosas - who doesn’t love brunch?  Then we dyed the eggs with food coloring as well as trying a new technique I learned about via Pinterest.  Foxflat posted an amazing how-to on dyeing eggs with silk ties.  Basically you wrap eggs in the fabric from silk ties, then wrap thread around the entire egg, and boil for 15-20 minutes.  When you unwrap the egg the pattern will have transferred to the egg.  Check out Foxflat for the full how-to.  It’s pretty amazing!  We didn’t have too many ties to try it out with – but I’ll be saving ones I find for next year.

  2. The Easter eggs are so lovely! I tried doing a similar project with my nieces, and somehow, my eggs did not quite look as wonderful as yours. Nonetheless, it's such a wonderful tradition and activity to do with loved ones.

    Cheers!

  8. Such a fun idea! I tried to dye eggs and ended up breaking four and had dye all over my arms..... looked like a child's art project gone terribly wrong!

    Yours turned out wonderfully. Great party idea!
