As with holidays like Christmas, particular stress is involved when entertaining at Easter.

You want to ensure that your table looks beautiful and not burn the roast in the oven.

While I cannot ensure that your roast doesn't burn, I can help you create something extra special for your table this Easter.

Colorful hard-boiled eggs! Yes, you read right. While we will all be eating our fair share of chocolate eggs, these boiled eggs are an excellent way to kill two birds with one stone - and stop you from constantly eating chocolate.

Your table will look excellent, and you will have a tasty snack for the days following Easter!

What you will need:

  • As many eggs as you want
  • A pot
  • Water
  • Salt/Vinegar
  • Non-toxic craft paint
  • Paintbrush
  • What you need to do:

1 - Boil your eggs in the pot for about 10 minutes to ensure they are hard inside. Add vinegar or salt to the boiling water at the start to ensure your eggs do not leak out of any cracks in the shell. Be careful when you place the eggs in the boiling water and when taking them out, as you do not want to break the shells.
2 - Run cold water over the boiled eggs and leave to cool - 30 minutes should be fine.
3 - Once cool, dry off your eggs, and place their eggs on newspaper and on an even surface - you don't want them rolling away and cracking.
4 - Use your craft paint and brush to decorate your eggs however you see fit. The more colorful, the better!
5 - Place the eggs on your table to decorate your Easter meal.
6 - After the meal, store your eggs in the fridge and enjoy them over the coming days. A hard-boiled egg will be delicate in the refrigerator for up to a week after cooking.
