Serve up these gorgeous dyed Easter eggs for breakfast, Or, display your vibrant creations around the house. Follow these easy dyeing techniques and you and the family can design your very own patterns and colour schemes.
Put an end to the kids’ Easter-holiday whinge, ‘Mum, I’m bored’, by involving them in making festive decorations. They can help put sticky dots and strips of tape on the hard-boiled eggs as well as dip them into diluted food colouring. Displayed in a clear glass bowl, the eggs look almost too lovely to eat.
Pop your dyed eggs into baskets or small containers filled with wheat grass (from juice bars, greengrocers or organic food stores) or artificial grass, or similar, then arrange them on your sideboard or table.
Arrange a row of eggcups along the centre of your table for an attractive centrepiece. Or, put an eggcup at each place setting.
Nestle two or three dyed eggs in nests made of woven-grass or dried sphagnum moss. Sit the nests on a rustic tray for a quaint nature-inspired theme. Alternatively, shop around for suitable baskets. Then, onto a bed of wheat grass, place a few of the decorated eggs. This is a sweet gift idea for your child’s teacher or a neighbour.
Pile brightly coloured eggs in a shallow white bowl so your guests can enjoy them.
