{easter egg inspiration ... }

Easter is nearly upon us! Do you have plans? A big dinner perhaps? We always do church of course, and lots of family time. And Good Friday happens to fall on my brother's birthday this year so we are going to head to our favorite Greek restaurant, yum can't wait already!

Well if you've got time this coming long weekend you could attempt one of these fabulous Easter egg projects! I've rounded up inspiration from all over the interwebs:

Love the idea of pasting faux flower petals for a delicate & pretty look. I'm still inspired by Kelly's fabulous gold-dipped eggs from last year!

Martha Stewart show us how to get the perfect glittered eggs; water-colored eggs would be fun and easy!

Ombre, such a pretty effect! And all you would have to do is slowly keep increasing the amount of dye; I love blue & white and this assortment makes me swoon.

A marbled effect, follow these suprisingly easy steps with gold leaf. And this cheeky reference to Pantone colors is so clever!

Elastic bands can create an artisitc striped effect; or cover your egg in glue and simply roll in pastel-hued sprinkles.

Chalk board paint ... I adore the idea of writing messages on the eggs. And here's a fun little tip I found via Pinterest, use a whisk for easy dipping while dying!

So much inspiration, people are so creative! Doesn't it get you itching to tackle an egg project? Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Easter is probably my least favorite holiday, but I still love to decorate accordingly. All these ideas are so pretty and chic, I would love to try them all :) But I probably won't have enough time so I'll go for glitter and ombré effect: so pretty!

Wow, great round up of ideas Nancy! We've yet to decorate our eggs, I doubt they will be that fancy, but I sure like the chalkboard paint. Wouldn't that be cute as a placename at the table?
Have a lovely Easter,
