Easter Eggs for Brunch

Our Easter tradition is to have a nice brunch Easter morning.   These days the menu is simple maybe crepes with fresh fruit and bacon.  Not at all like when the boys were teenagers and the menu was 13 items long.  We don’t have a fancy dining room, or fancy plates so I jazz it up with Easter decor instead.  Last year I folded pretty yellow napkins into bunnies,  dollar store placemats and Lindor chocolate bunnies on the plates.  This year I am making these Easter Egg place settings.  With a tiny bit of effort and expense I think they make an ordinary table look very special.

You will need egg cups, if your like me and the stores had none in stock you can buy small clay pots at Michael’s and quickly paint them with chalk paint.

To get the shells you will need an egg and a box cutter with a sharp blade.

Be careful, be cautious, do this slowly and don’t get cut.

Make sure the box cutter blade is sharp.  Apply a steady pressure to the narrow end of the egg.  Spin the egg slowly as you scratch a single line, it may take two rounds.  The egg will start to crack along the weak scratch point.  Continuing cutting along the line until the cap of the egg is lose and comes off.  Look carefully my egg cuts weren’t perfect but they still look pretty nice.

Empty the egg contents out into a bowl, you can still eat them.  Rinse the shell out thoroughly with water and let dry.

Place the Easter egg shell into the egg holder and add a little bit of water and your flowers.

Next make your name tags.  I printed ovals out in Microsoft Word on regular paper and then taped them to sparkly cardboard.

Take a two foot piece of thick thread, I used pink crochet cotton, fold it in half.  Hot glue the thread to the back of the name tags.

Tie the named tags to your eggs with a pretty bow.  Place on the table setting.

This looks pretty festive now I think.  The flowers cost $8.00 and I had enough for six settings.  I consider the eggs to be free as we had omelettes for dinner with them.

Please let me know your thoughts and if you like the post pin or share it for me.  Who knows maybe another lady or two could be happy with their less than perfect table setting as well.

Pass the crepes, I will skip the bacon.

    1. Thank you Kim. I am very proud of them. They make a big impact on a ho hum table for Easter. I appreciate the comment.

    1. I am glad you like them Dyana. Its so nice to have the tulips available in the grocery stores. Eggs and flowers are such a nice part of Easter decor. Thank you for commenting.

    1. Hi Jehava: I hope that you do try them out. After I made them I was really happy with how long the flowers lived in the eggs. They lasted several days.

  1. So cute! We use to cut them at work with a tool, but my fuzzy old brain can’t remember.
    The officers like their eggs in those little cups.

    The place settings are adorable.

    1. Would you believe that in a city of 1M I was not able to find egg cups during the end of March. After 7 stores I figured would have them I had to make some of my own. I like how the little cups turned out and they were under a dollar which is a bonus.

      Thank you for commenting Pam and for featuring me on your Create and Celebrate blog party. So honoured.

    1. It is such a long time between Christmas and Easter that it makes the fresh fruit, flowers and sunshine seem just so special. Cutting the egg is pretty easy to do I but I was very cautious of not getting cut.

    1. Honestly Debra I was feeling pretty frustrated about not being able to purchase some cute egg cups for this post. They turned out really well though and were so inexpensive. It turned out better than expected.

    1. Hi Lisa:

      You never know where inspiration will come from. I started with an egg and then thought boil, hollow, or cut. Decided cut was the most unique and it went from there.

      Thank you taking the time to comment. Love the Purple Hydrangea blog.

    1. Thank you for that Marie. We just don’t have the room for a separate dining area. Tablescapes are so beautiful but I cannot justify the cost especially in Canadian prices. Your comment makes me happy.

  2. Stopping by from Sunday’s Best. I love this tablescape. The egg holders are adorable, and perfect for an Easter lunch or dinner. Thanks for sharing.

    1. They are easy to put together and inexpensive. They would be okay for an Easter dinner I had no considered that as we always do the brunch. Happy Easter.

  3. I don’t do fancy breakfasts right now since it’s usually just me and Hubby {when he’s not out of town for work}. 🙂 I love these egg cup flower holders ~ I pinned them to my Crafts to Make and Holidays boards. The place cards are cute, too. Makes me think I’ll have to look for a crimper to crimp paper. Love your table decor!
    Thanks for two fun craft ideas. 🙂

    1. Like you I certainly don’t cook like I use to. I am as close to retired from cooking as I can get actually. Brunch and Easter and all kinds of appetizers for Christmas are two traditions I keep every year. Turkey not so much.

      Thanks for writing. Leanna

    1. Thank you Kathryn these are easy to make. No dyes no large mess. They really are very easy to do. Have a great weekend.

    1. Hi Florence: Thank you for saying so. I will do more of them closer to Easter, likely a day before. I tested them and they kept pretty well.

      Thank you for commenting. Leanna

  4. Using empty egg shells for flower pots is such a lovely idea Leanna. Your table looks beautiful and I’m sure everyone’s going to love what you’ve done. Hope you have a lovely Easter oh and please save the bacon for me 😉

  5. Oh my! That looks so elegant but so simple to do. Your super creative girly! I love it. Going to follow you on IG today too happy to find you via bloggers pit stop

  6. What a great add to your tablescape! It’s the little attention to detail that makes it special. I especially like the one with the pink and white flowers with the little bit of baby’s breath. Thanks for sharing! Pinned!

  7. I’ve never seen this done before and I love it! You really are the master when it comes to Easter egg decor….and using those clay pots is genius. I’m not sure if you have a World Market (or if you actually looked there) but they usually have inexpensive, plain white egg cups on sale year-round. I got some there last year. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! I’ll be pinning! xo Kathleen | Our Hopeful Home

  8. These are just so darling! Thank you for sharing. You will be one of the features tonight at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. The shindig starts at 8:00pm CDT. Hope to see you at the bash! Happy week to you! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
