Styling Heirloom Eggs…

Heirloom Egg & Plate Collection by Joanna Baker

The Heirloom Egg & Plate Collection launched nearly two weeks ago and I’ve had the honor of sending so many hand painted beauties off to their forever homes. While these one-of-a-kind decorative plates and eggs make beautiful Easter decor, they are also lovely to keep up throughout the spring and even year round. My Mom has kept hers displayed on the nightstand since she received it so she can see it every morning. 🥰

There are an infinite number of ways to style your Heirloom Eggs, whether you draw attention to a single egg or display them in clusters. Each one arrives with its own antique gold stand but they have flat bottoms and will also sit upright on a flat surface. One of my favorite ways to make a statement though, is to feature a single egg inside a bell jar or glass cloche.

Cloches look beautiful on a spring table scape, but they are also lovely on a mantle, entryway table, or in glass china cabinet. Here are a few affordable cloche options I’ve found to protect your work of art from dust and debris while also showcasing all those beautiful details.

2. Glass Cloche by Threshold from Target

3. Cloche with Base by Ashland from Michaels

4. Clear Glass Cloche Dome from Amazon

5. BEGÅVNING Glass Dome with Base from Ikea

When looking for cloches that will fit the Heirloom Eggs, you’ll want an interior dome dimension of at least 6.5″ tall and 4″ wide. Make sure that if the dome base has a ridge, lip, or groove, that the inside platform is at a minimum 3.75″ wide to accommodate the feet on the Antique Gold egg stand.

A Big Announcement…

I have some news… we bought a house and we’re moving to New Jersey! Even as I type those words, it doesn’t feel real. We closed this past Thursday and we’re moving in 9 days!! 🤯 I’ve been dying to share this news with you, but we had to keep things under wraps until it was official. And in this crazy housing market, at every turn it felt like things could fall apart. But finally, after seven months of serious searching, everything lined up and we found a house! It feels like the perfect fit for us right now and I can’t wait to get settled in our new space. I’ll share more pictures soon but here’s a peek at our new kitchen…

This challenge is one I’m very familiar with – living and creating in a one bedroom Manhattan apartment is no easy feat! And let’s face it – a trip to the art supply store can easily add up. (Raise your hand if you relate to this meme? 🙋‍♀️) I think it’s easy to get caught up in a Pinterest spiral and think you need a sun drenched, airy studio space or all the fancy art supplies in order to make great work. But that simply just isn’t the case!
