I’ve been thinking about Easter quite a bit this week. There’s a lot I want to make this year. But it all depends on where we are going. With two families and one two-year old, holidays can be tricky. We often have to celebrate two weeks in a row. My husband has two siblings that live in Texas and I’m the first-born so everyone wants to have Ava. And then we often end up at my aunt’s house if we’re doing my side of the family and she’s a Martha Stewart type so I sometimes don’t bother doing anything if that’s the case. But here are my inspirational Easter pins.
I won’t lie to you. I make an awesome deviled egg. They get devoured every time. But I hadn’t thought about using dyed eggs before. I can’t understand why. It seems like a no-brainer. So at the very least I’ll be making these. I have a great egg platter that I am in love with.
This was done with crayons on still hot boiled eggs. How easy is that? And they look really cute. Here’s the tutorial that came linked with the egg: http://www.cometogetherkids.com/2011/04/melted-crayon-easter-eggs.html I did something similar at Halloween and melted crayons over pumpkins. It was time-consuming, but the end result was pretty cool.
I gave up sweets for lent this year, so I will definitely be partaking in something delicious on Easter. I’m actually going to try to stay off the sweets after that because it was embarrassing difficult to do. But I am definitely having Easter cake. The “nest” on this cake is actually made from chocolate shavings.
