Look! Egg Cups as Flower Vases

We just saw these photos at Martha Stewart, and they reminded us of this post last year where Chris used his cute egg cup collection as decoration for his Easter table. He put egg-shaped candles in his egg cups, but Martha's filling hers with tiny little bouquets. Do you have egg cups lying around your house?We're imagining all kinds of possibilities. You could use them as place settings, line them up along a windowsill, or put one on a bedside table as an Easter morning surprise for a child or significant other.

Martha groups them together for a more striking centerpiece, putting them on a silver tray or scattering them on a tiered cake stand. We're actually more partial to the photo on the right, with leggy flowers tossed in casually. It looks like less effort, it works well with a mismatched set of eggcups, and you could make one bunch of blooms go a long way.

If you don't have egg cups, you could do something similar with small juice glasses or (maybe not quite in the spirit of Easter morning) a shot glass collection.
