Spring is in the air, and the Easter Bunny will be hopping into town soon!
One of my favorite Easter traditions is egg decorating. I’m a big fan of the traditional pastel-dyed eggs (they are hard to beat!), but this year I wanted to mix it up and try another decorating style as well: glitter eggs!
And oh, my goodness—they turned out amazing!
How to Make Glitter Easter Eggs:
Look at that glitter egg!
For the traditional dyed Easter eggs, simply fill a Chinet Cut Crystal 9 oz. cup with hot water. Add 1 teaspoon white vinegar and the food coloring of your choice. Let your hard-boiled egg soak in the dye for 5 minutes, and then use a plastic spoon to transfer it to your platter to dry.
I love the look of both the pastel-dyed eggs and the glitter eggs, but I think glitter stole the show this year! They are just SO pretty.
Having the disposable Chinet Classic White platters at each place setting was such an easy way to host an Easter egg decorating party—plenty of space to work on, sturdy enough for spills and best of all, easy to clean up.
With all the creative energy that was spent on decorating eggs, some tasty Easter treats were also a necessity!
These crispy robin’s egg nests are easy and cute for any Easter party.
Crispy Robin's Egg Nests
3 tablespoons butter
1 package (10 oz.) marshmallows
6 cups puffed rice cereal
1 package Robin eggs Easter candies
TIP: You can also use store-bought puffed-rice cereal bars, cut them in half, and mold into nests.
Another fun Easter party treat I tried this year are marbled Easter egg cakes.
These are easier than they look and such a crowd pleaser!
Marbled Easter Egg Cakes
1 box moist white cake mix
Easter egg cookie cutter
Last but not least, this Easter party punch is delicious and super cute served with candy party straws!
Well, there you have it! All you need to create the perfect Easter egg decorating party. And the best part about this party was how easy the cleanup was thanks to Chinet Cut Crystal disposable products!
Try your hand at glitter Easter eggs this season and maybe a treat or two to enjoy, as well. Happy Easter!
