Dying Easter Eggs


According to tradition in Greece, today is the day to dye your eggs, if you are an orthodox christian. Most of you know that the original dying color is red (symbolizing Jesus blood). Through the years dying easter eggs has evolved to a really nice tradition for many of us, not always using red as our main color. 
So, this year I chose to dye my eggs with food coloring, making all these cute and pastel combinations.

In case you are dying your eggs too today and want to give it a try...you'll need food coloring, vinegar and water. Also, I used white eggs.

In a coffee cup, mix together a 1/2 cup of water at room temperature, 1 tablespoon of vinegar, and several drops of food coloring.  Prepare several different colors in this manner. Carefully place one egg in each cup of food coloring. Watch the eggs carefully and remove them when they reach the desired shade. Use a spoon to remove the egg and place it in an egg holder or on a paper towel to dry. You can also try two or three different colors on each egg, or dying it half and half. 
Have fun guys! And happy easter to those of you who are celebrating now !! xoxo
