You will need:
- Needle or egg pricker
- Different sizes of eggs (such as quail’s eggs and medium white eggs)
- Delicate flowers such as gysophila, ranunculus, freesia and other dainty spring flowers
- Attractive egg cups, an egg box and other attractive egg holders
- Linen napkins
How to make it
Use a needle or egg pricker to make a small hole in the egg. Then, with the tip of a sharp knife, make the hole in the eggshell a bit larger, and catch the egg in a bowl.
Rinse out the eggshells thoroughly, then fill them with a little bit of water and place the flowers in the eggshells. Make sure the stems are not too long or too heavy.
Give the eggshell vases a romantic setting to show them off to their best advantage. Place them in a bamboo eggcup, a felt egg holder or group them loosely in a linen napkin. Or, keep the egg box and use it as a vase holder. If you're after a splash of colour, then paint the egg box in a colour that matches the table setting.
Use the eggs that you've saved for a delicious breakfast omelette, homemade cake or other treat.
