In case you’re the lucky lady hosting the Easter meal this year, these super fast DIY color blocked egg place cards are the perfect addition for your table (just don’t try and say their name really fast five times). Also, when I say “perfect”, I’m really just assuming that you procrastinate as much as I do and need something cute that only require about ten minutes of effort.
- Martha Stewart all-purpose craft paints
- Martha Stewart twine
- Card stock flags (or card stock to cut your own)
- Hole punch
To color the eggs, pour various colors in their own cups, then dip the eggs in one side and let dry.
Once they’re dry, write each name on a flag, hole punch, and then tie around the egg. It seems harmless enough, but tying twine around an egg is no small feat, so do this just before placing them at each setting.

Hands down one of my favorite food bloggers is Melissa, the magician and all around sweetheart behind The Faux Martha. Not only does she have pictures pretty enough to take a bite out of, but if there is a tip or trick to be had, she’s got that too.
For a little last minute Easter weekend prep, I picked out a few recipes to try over your (hopefully) long weekend…

For those of you that couldn’t be at the Ikea DIY event a few weeks ago, you can catch the flavored drink recipe portion on the Ikea Houston blog! Trust me, you’ll really like this one. Plus it’s crazy simple and you could make jugs of it in about the same time frame that it takes to eat a cupcake. It’s been proven, take my word for it.
