It’s almost Easter, my spring Christmas but without the presents.
This year I’m having a go at dyeing eggs naturally using spices and vegetable juices for a pre-Easter kiddie party. I’ve been walking around with red and purple hands and for the love of all things shiny I couldn’t get my eggs pink. There was supposed to be at least one pink egg in the photos but alas. I’m going to try radishes and raspberries over the next few days because I will have a pink egg eventually!
The principals are quite simple. You mix water, vinegar and salt with either spices or vegetable juices and you let your white (hard boiled) eggs soak in it. If you want darker blue or purple eggs you should use brown eggs and you’ll have to soak the eggs for a longer period. For example turmeric with brown eggs will give you green eggs. It’s so much fun!
I got to lay the table with all these cute new Dille & Kamille goodies especially for kids. I absolutely love the colouring placemats and the crocheted egg cosies. There’s a ton more to pick from to lay a beautiful table.
