With Easter just around at the corner, it is time to for you to decide on how you will decorate your table and your home for your Easter brunch celebrations. In my mind, nothing says Easter more than decorated eggs. I made a short list of easy Easter egg decorating ideas that would bring a modern feel to your Easter decor.

The first idea adds beautiful patterns to your eggs with Washi tapes. In Canada, Omiyage carries a beautiful selection but you will need to hurry up to receive them in time.

For your table or your home

You will save time by mixing white eggs brown eggs, tiny quail eggs with your decorated eggs. If you are lucky to find a source for naturally coloured eggs, like these gorgeous pastel eggs pictured at the farm in Vermont by Bea from La Tartine Gourmande, you may skim the colouring step all together.

A sure way to modernize the look of your decorated eggs is to leave white spaces. This is what Courtney of Merriment did with her cute neon-dip-dyed eggs. I love how they turned out.

You can quickly add white patterns to basic coloured eggs with the wide rubber band technique. This is a good reason to collect the rubber bands attached to the broccoli, instead of throwing them away.

Using basically the same technique and vinyl letters, you can create fun Easter egg place cards. If you don’t have enough rubber bands, 1/4-inch-wide electrical tape will do the job. This is what Martha Stewart used to create her scrambled lines and letters eggs.

Lastly, leave it to Martha to teach us how to make our own egg drying rack. You will even find a video on her tutorial page.

Have fun decorating your Easter eggs. There are only two Saturdays left to make it happen.
