Go ahead and put all your eggs in one basket. These shaded shells resemble a spring sunrise when together. Take a combination of brown and white eggs, and dye half of them in faint lavender or bronze; then spray contrasting colors on all of the tops. Set them in a large oval basket made of pussy willow branches, and nestle in a gleaming focal point — a single "golden egg" — for good luck.
