I was browsing through the aisles of TJMaxx one day when I spotted a package of 6 white egg cups. Perfect. They would go with any color decor and I could maybe even get creative and paint something on them. For just $4.99 I had my set of egg cups.
On Wednesday, Sherri posted this, her ideas for decorations with egg cups, which got me thinking. I love all of her ideas, especially the candy one, but we're trying to not eat so many sweets around here, and I didn't want to copy her. I saw someone else's idea of putting monkey grass into eggs. So, when I was shopping this morning, I went to the garden section of Wal-Mart, and found the perfect thing. The small packs of annual flowers come in sets of six, so I found some vincas that looked good (I had to search to find a pack with six nice blooms), and for $1.68 I had my egg cup flowers.
Here's my finished product
I then took a painter's pen, and wrote names on each cup, so we can use them as place cards.
I'm hoping that I'll even be able to plant these after the weekend is over, but I did have to cut some of the root balls in order to fit them in the cups. Even if they don't make it into the ground, it was well worth less than $2 for a table decoration.
