A {Boozy} Egg Decorating Brunch

IMG_5923

IMG_5921Last Sunday (rather ambitiously, as it was the day before her big site launch, my sister invited a group of us over to her apartment in Brooklyn for some Easter egg decorating fun and a boozy little brunch.  There’s something nice about winding down the weekend with friends, family, and cocktails… and you know me, a little crafting never hurts either!  This is also when I took these photos… I know I’ve mentioned it nearly every day this week, but I’m still just so excited about Becca’s big launch… the collection could not be more perfect and I’ve loved seeing everyone else’s posts about it this week!

{If you celebrate it, I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend.  Our offices are closed today and I’m off to Dallas with Stefan to celebrate my coworker (and cofounder of BaubleBar‘s) wedding.  Cheers!}

    Look like you had a lovely brunch. The eggs look beautiful and the food looks so yummy. I’m loving your sister’s new line. I’m obsessed with her tie dye looking pillows.

    Such a fun idea to do with friends! Call me silly, but what are the holes in the bottom of your eggs? I can’t figure it out!

    • Grace says 3.29.13

      They’re from blowing the eggs hollow 🙂

    • Rebecca says 3.29.13

      The holes are from when you blow out the inside! That way you can keep them.
