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 are 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! —Shandra Ward, Designer for Party Elements

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

Think Outside The Egg Crate

If you’re not in the mood to cook eggs, 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. Therefore, take your eggs one step further and use a different decorating technique. Step outside-the-box and create unique designs using acrylic paint, decoupage, glitter, or chalkboard paint.  Use markers, stickers, crayons, pencils, stencils, watercolors and Kool-Aid.

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. Think about using baskets stuffed with straw, or plastic egg cartons, or boxes.  Create whatever lights up your bulb. {smile}

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. 😉

Here are a few of our favorites from across the web:
