easter terrariums


I was inspired by a recent issue of Martha Stewart's Living magazine to create my own Easter terrarium center pieces. I may or may not have performed the quality taste test on several pieces of....well I won't bore you with the details of each jelly bean, malt chocolate speckled egg, or milk chocolate robin's eggs. But I will share that the grass is edible. Green apple flavoured to be exact ;0)

In the break between General Conference talks today, Maribel and I coloured some eggs. Yay!
psst I'll let you in on a little secret. *I have never died eggs before today. Ever. For rizzle.* I definitely had fun and I know Maribel did too. I love how creative Maribel is but she is also a little impatient.

Tomorrow we will be turning these colourful 'fruits of the chicken's bum' into delish deviled eggs but as you can see, one won't be making it tomorrow.

" 'Dust one little egg Mommy? Can I have 'dust one? Teensie Blue egg?    Please?"

Fine. Just one...

Are you sure Martha didn't make those herself? So cute!

I can't believe I didn't know what a terrarium was. Should I be posting that? hee hee! I'll blame it on the fact I am French. lol!

Awe...so sweet that you shared a first with M!

Very cool Jenn. You are so creative. I have never dyed eggs either - they are beautiful.

How have you never died eggs before?? We did ours today, and they look much like yours. Except we lost four....no deviled eggs here tomorrow!!

PS - what is the green grass?

Aww thanks everyone for your kind words ;0)
I bought the grass @ Target, some new brand I have never heard of.
