Chick Deviled Eggs

I don't know about you all, but I love deviled eggs! Every time we go to a friends house for a get together, party, etc... there is always deviled eggs. 

This Easter we are going to friends house and there is supposed to be about 35 to 40 people. I have bought 4 dozen eggs and will be getting my deviled egg on for the next few days. I am going to dye the eggs and the filling colors and make these Chick Eggs too!

I saw this idea on Rachel Ray the other day.
Here is what some of the eggs will look like... Cute! Right?

Its simple but can be a little tricky. All you need to do is slice the egg a little less than half way down. Then as careful as you can get the yolk out. I found that if I pushed a little on the bottom it would slip out better. As you can see in this photo some of them weren't successful.

Once you have gotten all your yolks out prepare the mixture as usual. You will put your mixture in like you would normally just add a little extra. You want them to be tall enough to hold the top of the egg and enough room to put a face on them. Once you have them filled add the top. Next you will add the face. I used black olives for the eyes and cut them into tiny piece. Infact for the ones in the pictures I used ONE olive. That's 7 chicks with one olive. Then for the nose I used baby carrots. Again one carrot was used for all 7 chicks.

Since Easter is only a few days away, I though I would share my banner and the little bit of the Easter decor I have in the house. As you can see I have a table cloth and two glass cylinders that have Easter grass and a few plastic eggs in them. Simple! I actually made the cylinders. Get two candle sticks and two glass decor cylinders and glue them together and you will have a new decorative item for your home. I move them around my house. I put different decor in them for any season and or holiday.

I made my banner and egg tree last year. All From the Dollar Store! For the tree the center part is part of a wire hanger and then the branches are floral wire. Add a bow and you have a tree... 
For my banner I just got foam butterflies and flowers and then bought some square pieces and cut out letters and hot glued them on the butterflies or flowers. Then strung it together with purple ribbon. 

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter!
