I have been picking up these adorable vintage egg cups throughout the year at yard sales and thrift stores and now have a collection in varying sizes.
I couldn’t envision ever using them for their intended purpose of holding a soft-boiled egg but I could envision using them for decorative purposes, especially for Spring. I am drawn to the very plain ones and really like how they look when grouped.
Recently, I planted them with my go to “fresh flowers” … wheat grass. Wheat grass is so easy and fast to grow (about 1 week) and I love how it brings a pop of Spring color into my home.
For my Easter table, I set a couple on some wood rounds and covered them with a glass globe. This gave them a bigger presence and also helped to deter our cats from jumping up on the table and chewing on the grass (cats love wheat grass).
I also weaved a few egg cups into my mantle display to refresh it for Spring and continue the theme. It’s nice to see an element repeated.
Here’s a few other cute ideas for using egg cups that I found on the internet:
I have amassed more than I need of these egg cups, so if you would like an instant collection I will be listing a few sets in our etsy store in the coming days.
