Are you ready for Easter? We usually love to have a big feast with friends, and I always think about to make the table look seasonal and different. This year we’ll have tiny individual nests placed at each setting, shaped around gold-painted egg shells and filled with beautiful little praline eggs (not to be eaten until later!)
(I have to show these beautiful over-sized bowls here as often as I can; my best friend helped me drag 8 of them back from Paris after our trip there and never lets me forget how heavy they were; I feel compelled to demonstrate at every opportunity that they are well-used…)
First, gather some egg-shells, rinse them out and paint the inside gold (and the outside too if you like)…
Then weave a little sisal or hay around them and tuck in a few sprigs of moss. Other ideas for elementary nest construction here!
I used a box of these eggs to fill them; small enough to fit, pretty enough to look startlingly real (and very edible).
