These days simply dipping your eggs in colored water seems like only half done.  Add some interest with a little bling, ribbon, or stickers.  Not only does it add pretty detail, it also adds dimension.  Great idea for centerpieces or place settings! (Photos from BHG: here and here) Happy Easter, Everyone!
