Easter has snuck up on me this year. I know that JoAnn’s has already moved on to its patriotic Memorial Day décor, but I’m still putting away stray hearts from February. Throw in spring break, a special 6 year old birthday celebration, and a week long visit from my in-laws and I’ve realized that our Easter will have a much simpler, but hopefully still very meaningful feel to it this year.
One thing that is incredibly meaningful for us this year is the chance to celebrate Easter brunch with a few friends that have no local family. There will be 19 of us in total and while the meal will be casual, a group of that size requires a little strategy with seating. With only a few basic supplies (and no skill required), each seat has been festively assigned and warmly awaits our Easter morning chorus of “He is risen….He is risen indeed!” Even if your celebration doesn’t require assigned seating, these iridescent eggs could make an easy, last minute centerpiece, especially if you’re behind the 8-ball like me!
Glittered Egg Place Cards
Paper name tags
I used both decorative robins eggs and standard-issue plastic Easter eggs for this project and had good results with both. For the plastic Easter eggs I chose ones in the same color family as the glitter I was using to avoid a glaring contrast showing through. The plastic egg in the image documenting the glitter step was a blue Easter egg.
Coat plastic egg with Mod Podge. Cover egg liberally with fine glitter.
Allow to dry and touch up areas with minimal coverage.
Use Spanish moss to create free-form nests. Print off name tags and adhere with glue dot, hot glue, or double sided tape.
And for the kids, we kept with the nest theme but made an edible variety.
It might have snuck up on me this year but my desire to make this day special is still the same. And, ultimately, we know that it isn’t about glittered eggs, nests and place cards.
However prepared you feel this Easter, may your heart and your home be filled with joy as you celebrate our risen Savior.
Looking forward to seeing you again soon at the Fence,

How lovely! I’d love to find time to do some glittering – it’s been since before christmas since I’ve had the glitter out!
These are so sweet…I love the mix of glittered and painted eggs, it gives a nice mix of texture to your assortment! Happy Easter, girls!
BEAUTIFUL and how exciting to be hosting those who would not be with family or friends on this special day. I’m sure it’s going to be a wonderful day — I’ll be celebrating with all three of my grown children at the table for the first time in a few Easters!
