Personal champagne service at the press of a button? Darling you don’t have to say it twice! As an entertaining enthusiast and champs lover at heart, I look forward to the day that I can ring a bell for bubbles on demand, or at least visit the Montage Beverly Hills so I can see the iconic “Press for Champagne” bell in person. With Easter’s arrival coming up soon and my mind on champagne service and bells, it didn’t take long before I was painting these buttons all over easter eggs. Because it’s almost a guarantee that champagne will be flowing over brunch on Easter Sunday and these chic little eggs made with paper rose gold frames, although no service included, will certainly look adorbs on display next to your festive mimosa bars and beverage stations.
P R E S S F O R C H A M P A G N E E A S T E R E G G S
6 – 12 hard-boiled eggs, at room temp.
Small paper frames that you can download for free below.
White & Rose Gold acrylic craft paint. I use Martha Stewart crafts.
2 medium tip paint brushes.
Glue of choice. I used glue sticks, but any craft glue will work.
Black sugar pearls.
Black fine tip pen.
1. Print your downloaded frames onto heavy card stock and cut them out with sharp scissors.
2. Paint the cut out frames with rose gold paint and allow 20 minutes to dry.
3. Once your frames have dried, cover the backs of them in glue and attach to the center of each egg.
4. Paint the inside of each frame with one coat of white paint.
5. Once dry, paint a small circle in the center of each framed egg, using the rose gold paint (door bell.) Allow to set for 5 minutes and then paint another coat of rose gold over that circle.
6. Place one small black sugar pearl into the center of each painted gold circle.
7. Transfer to the fridge to dry. About 15 minutes.
8. Once paint has set, remove the black sugar pearl from the center of the egg. It should leave an indented black circle to mimic the look of the bell. Allow to dry.
9. Once the “bell” is completely dry, use a fine tip permanent black marker to write the words “PRESS FOR CHAMPAGNE” in caps on each egg.
10. “PRESS FOR” should be written above the bell. With “CHAMPAGNE” written beneath.
11. Paint with a gloss finish if desired, then transfer back to the fridge until ready to display.
Here’s how they look when they’re done!
Easter Sunday chic.
Happy almost Friday! I hope you give this champagne DIY a try over the weekend! I’ll more on the way soon!
