Never would I have thought that eggs would have been a wedding (or generally pretty) detail I’d be able to bring you, but in the last few months I’ve seen some seriously egg-celent (boom boom) nuggets of egg-related creativity and with the sixth day of Christmas being six geese a-layin’, I have the perfect opportunity!
First, how much do I LOVE this adorable message in an egg? Almost too pretty to crack open! I’m trying to think of an excuse to make one of these, but they’d be an adorable DIY to ask your best friends to be your bridesmaids, Save the Dates, escort cards or even as placeholders or favours on the big day. If making one per guest is too much (and let’s be honest, it may not be practical), think about making one for each table, and you could put something fun on the inside, like a trivia question for the guests to answer, or something about themselves to share (favourite place they’ve travelled, etc.).
Book page bird’s nest with glitter egg DIY
I love using printed pages from old books or newspapers in wedding details, and these would make absolutely darling place holders or escort cards, wouldn’t they? It’s the perfect combination of glitz and literary love – so me!
DIY Party Egg Game
by Oh Happy Day!
This image has to be one of my favourites from 2011. I don’t know why, but I find the idea of a pretty egg filled with glitter thrilling, like Christmas has come all at once! The idea behind this is a fun Easter game, where most of the eggs are filled with edible confetti and one with glitter. Friends crack them over one another’s heads and the one with the glitter egg wins a prize. That’s fun, but not sure it’s something you’ll want to bring to your wedding, I’ll admit. And maybe there’s no practical way of having glitter filled eggs at a Big Day. I don’t even care. It makes me happy to share it. :)
