I love the deep intense colors of these eggs. Only possible with brown eggs!

Last Easter when we arrived for Easter dinner with Sophia and Antonio, there was a large basket on the dining table filled with beautiful eggs like these.

As I told you, I was a bit apprehensive about how the eggs were going to appear when Lisa told me she had used brown eggs. I will never forget how gorgeous that basket of dyed brown eggs looked.

I've been playing around with brown eggs this week!

Having never even considered using brown eggs at Easter, I was more than a little apprehensive last year when I learned that Sophia and Antonio had been dying brown eggs for Easter.

Turns out - brown eggs are beautiful when dyed and tomorrow I will show you Sophia's and Antonio's tricks!

Today, however, I wanted to share some beautiful brown eggs I have been playing around with - revisiting techniques I have used in the past and some great ideas from fellow bloggers.

Ribbon Sandwiches - Perfect for Easter

When I was a kid and my mother made these little Ribbon Sandwiches - which she did every year for the church circle Mother's Day Tea - I was in heaven when she finally pulled the chilling loaves from the fridge and sliced off the crusts.

You see - we kids got to eat the crusts and the bits of those yummy fillings still clinging to them! We weren't allowed to have any of the perfect ones because they were for the tea. But that was just fine with us. The "reject" crusts were just as good.
