Introduction

This idea comes from our friend Anusha Rajeswaran of Fish & Bull. These modern Easter eggs are bright and colorful, and easy to personalize with your own message. Decorate them individually as monogrammed place cards for guests and or display them together for a bold centerpiece at the Sunday table.

 

To preserve your eggs for seasons to come, watch our 1-minute video for the quick tutorial on how to blow out an egg. And for drying your dyed eggs, a drying pin-board makes for even drying and quick cleanup.
