Potluck Eggs-travaganza!

We recently hosted our monthly potluck! The birthday kids voted on pizza to be served, an oldy but a goody! Being as we always need to have some sort of activity to go with our food, we tied in an Easter theme with potluck and hosted an Easter egg decorating contest. Team members brought in their eggs that they decorated over Easter weekend.

Check out these egg-squisite works of art!

Imelda F., our Cutting Department Manager submitted these. Notice the Mardi Gras inspired egg, completely covered in colorful sequins!

Mandy L., Design Team Director, submitted this elegant egg. Died with onion peels (her grandma's recipe) and a hand-drawn, henna inspired pattern.

Rachel D., Creative Services Manager, submitted these beauties. Dyed with a Martha Stewart recipe that involves food coloring, olive oil and vinegar. You may notice the egg on the right magically appeared with a tiny smiley face on it!

These delectable treats were not real eggs, rather egg-shaped cakes! Submitted by Erika B., Marketing Assistant

Everyone at LILL voted on his or her favorite entry. It was a close race between all 4 submissions, but Imelda F. ended up with the prize! LILL's newest style, NIKKI. Made in Fleur de LILL.

Really, in the end, everyone wins. Not only are these contest entries beautiful works of art, but they are delicious, edible treats!

Mandy and Imelda were caught enjoying a little egg dessert after the potluck.

We hope you enjoyed sharing in our potluck festivities!

Email me if you have a fun idea for our next potluck!
