In my book For Good Times, one of my favourite chapters and the first one we shot was the third chapter Early Bird Breakfast. It has great ideas for Easter or a Spring party and I am going to be sharing the ideas over the next week or so. Enjoy!
RISE AND SHINE WITH A BREAKFAST SPREAD THAT IS DEFINITELY NOT ONE FOR THE BIRDS. FROM BUTTERNUT SCONES TO HUMMINGBIRD CAKE YOU AND YOUR GUESTS WILL BE INVIGORATED TO PLAY SOME “EGG”CELLENT LAWN GAMES.
CRACK ME OPEN INVITATION
MATERIALS Coloured Paint | Paint Brush | White Paint/Tippex | White Paper | Scissors | Pin | Toothpick | Twine | Blown Out Egg | Natural Raffia | Small Box
DIRECTIONS 1 – Paint blown out eggs in brightly-coloured paint and decorate with white paint by drawing on polka dots or flowers. 2 – Print the party details on a thin strip of paper (2cm x 20cm). Roll the paper into a tight tube and insert through the larger hole in the eggshell. 3 – Print the Crack Me Open Tags, cut out and pierce a small hole at the top with a pin and toothpick. Thread through twine and tie the tag around the painted egg. 4 – Paint a small box in bright colour and fill with natural raffia. Place the egg inside and the box lid on top. Tie the box closed with twine.
