EGG-treme Decorating

Here comes Peter Cottontail....with a basket full of stylish Easter eggs!


Our friends at Evite, where they believe “Life’s Better Together”, has asked their Influencer Network to share our memories and ideas on gathering with family during Easter.

My fondest memories of Easter is dying eggs with my sister, my mom and my grandmother. Going to the drug store to get the decorating kits has been quoted, by me and my sister as "the best day ever", LOL! 



{Click here for classic egg dying recipe}

Why not turn this great family pastime into a party! Invite friends over, serve up some sassy appetizers, pop open your favorite wines and let the decorating commence! 

To get the word out, I created an invitation with Evite's "Design Your Own Invitation" feature.  This feature allows you to insert your own pic to get your guests "egg-cited" about the fun they are about to "egg-perience". Ok, I promise, no more egg puns. 😉


If you don't think you can eat 3 dozen eggs :), dress up your lovelies in an egg carton wrapped in clear paper or sheets of tissue paper, tie it up with a fancy ribbon, attach a tag and give as gifts to your neighbors and friends.  You can also use baskets stuffed with straw, plastic egg cartons, boxes...whatever lights up your bulb.{smile}



Not in the mood to cook eggs because you may not be able to eat them all (lol),  feel free to venture off and use wood or plastic products shaped like eggs.  These items can be reused again for next year or put on display as your own original art collection. 



This Easter, take your eggs one step further with different decorating techniques.  Step outside-the-box and create unique designs using acrylic paint, decoupage, glitter, chalkboard paint, markers, stickers, crayons, pencils, stencils, watercolors and Kool-Aid.  

Decorating eggs are easy and inexpensive to create.  You can get supplies from the supermarket, craft store or your pantry.

Here's a few of our favorites from across the web:

Angry Birds
Kool-Eggs (dyed with Kool-Aid
And Puppy Make Three
Claudine Gervais-chalkboard eggs


This post was a partnership with Evite. I was compensated by Evite for my time in developing this post. All opinions are my own.
