Flowering Egg Shells

Flowering Egg Shells

Easter dinner guests will shell out countless compliments when they catch sight of these flower-filled "vases" made from ordinary eggs.

To hatch these cute cups:

  • Crack the narrow end of a raw egg and break away a small portion.
  • Empty the contents of the egg. Rinse the shell and let dry.
  • Create a larger opening by breaking away more of the shell. Place a small piece of wet floral foam inside the shell. Fill with water. Insert small, fresh spring flowers (such as grape hyacinth and agapanthus) into the floral foam. Set the flower-filled shell in egg cup.

For our centerpiece, we mimicked these miniature flowering egg shells by placing greens and bigger blooms of hyacinth in larger vases.
