Idea 1. Kids’ IKEA to the rescue!
It’s Easter egg decorating time and considering that it is basically impossible to get white-shelled eggs in Australia, this year I went with a slightly different presentation of the pastel kind. Mainly because last year we spent a gazillion hours at the local supermarket picking through ALL of the egg boxes to get a dozen light beige ones – the closest to white we could find.
And aren’t they cute? Serving the little egg and prawn ‘cocktails’ in these teeny weeny cups and saucers from IKEA’s kids section makes them not only look super cute, it saves the hassle of being asked to leave the supermarket…… recipe coming next Monday.
