While dying eggs may be fun, it's far from artistic. However, with watercolors, painting blown eggs or hard boiled eggs can become true works of art. Using watercolor paints or simple food coloring, you can create soft watery designs in beautiful pastel colors. It is a great interactive project for kids to share in without the mess and monotony of dying.
Whether you're dying them for Easter, eating them for breakfast or making Deviled Eggs for brunch, the hard-boiled egg is in fact incredible.
This year when YOUR Williamson magazine asked me to design an Easter table for their April issue I was thrilled because I adore Easter! I totally have my grandmother to blame ... it's her favorite too. Growing up, I remember Easter Egg hunts in her Williamsburg boxwood garden, beautiful Easter dresses (one year I even wore a matching hat), family photos and lunch after church around her long dinning room table.
I always make a cake for my family's Easter celebration (one year it was in the shape of a bunny ... sometimes I get carried away). With the holiday quickly approaching, I can't decide which spring favorite to bake, so I thought I'd make several options in the weeks leading up to Easter to help decide. First, the Carrot Cake.
