10 Favorite: Easter Eggs

Total honesty: I have never dyed an egg in my life.

Ok, actual total honesty: There might’ve been one Easter when I was a kid when I dyed an egg. I have a vague memory of it.

But these days? With my schedule? And no kids? Yeah, Easter eggs just don’t happen. Every year, I pin my favorites and every year, Easter comes and goes, I throw together a side dish, arrive at Grandmother’s house, eat till I’m comatose and eggs go undyed once again. But I won’t be discouraged! One year, I WILL do something totally awesome to eggs (besides this, which is maybe the most awesome thing you can do to an egg). And until then, I will continue to amass creative egg ideas.

Here are my current favorites:EasterEggs1

Do you dye eggs? Got any great ideas for Easter decor that are quick and easy?

Friendsgiving : A Tablescape

Saturday night, Aaron and I invited friends over for our second annual Friendsgiving dinner – 12 people gathered around my dining room table, stuffing their faces and drinking as much wine as possible. It. Was. Excellent.

For the centerpiece, I gathered mini-gourds, pomegranates, pinecones and a few gold and bronze tchotchkes and votives, plus my beloved birdie salt-and-pepper shakers.

For the flowers, I used a mix of coral/yellow and orange alstroemeria, yellow daisies, orange mums, maroon chrysanthemums and purple aster (I think…).

I made extra candle-holders by bringing in my Nate Berkus gold bowls, filling them with whole coffee beans and sticking a candle in the middle.

I took a lot of inspiration from my Modern Thanksgiving dream table, which you can read more about here. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
