Prepare the egg drying rack per the instructions in the link above.
To decorate the candy eggs with gold, use a small tip paintbrush and metallic food paint. Make stripes, squiggles, and polka dots. Let dry on rack.
To transform a candy egg into a chick, use the candy decorating pens to paint two dotted eyes with black, then use orange to make a beak, and add extra details.
Shape the shredded Easter grass into a birds nest per the instructions in the link above.
Place the nest at the center of each place setting on top of a folded napkin. Once they have dried, add decorated candy eggs to nest.
