Design-a wooden egg cup by Baker Ross

What Easter breakfast table would be complete without egg cups for your freshly boiled eggs! As I didn't have any egg cups that went with my colour theme I recently purchased the design a wooden egg cups and have started painting them in the pastel colour paints I used to decorate my Easter bird houses last year. This year I am having guests for afternoon tea at Easter so I was thinking of putting chocolate eggs in mine, but I also love Martha's idea of putting flowers or candles in the empty egg shells.

I hope to finish painting my egg cups soon and I will post the pics up here.

Have a sweet day!
