Easter Inspiration

Eggs, bells, chocolate, baskets: all the makings of an Easter Sunday celebration. Martha Stewart Magazine offers a beautiful cover this month and found their inspiration with the Greek and Eastern European eggs.

Inspired by the magazine cover, we created a basket in a red and beige palette, icing cookies in the same patterns as the decal eggs on the cover. It was lots of fun and here are the results:
