Happy Easter weekend! Are you needing a last minute egg decorating idea for Sunday? If so, I’ve got you covered with pretty in pink painted eggs, inspired by the iconic Peggy Porschen bakery in London. The architecture of the bakery, with the floral front door is enough to leave a lasting impression, but add in the pink hues, and the perfectly decorated confections and it’s no wonder the bakery is so well known worldwide! Peggy Porschen dessert parlour is heavenly, from the pictures alone and a must visit destination on my bucket list. While struggling to find inspiration during these times, turning to the beauty of Peggy Porschen was just what I needed to feel inspired and add some bright color, to what will be a very quiet Easter celebration at home.
If you’re in need of some cheer and a therapeutic painting activity, grab a brush and some eggs and let’s get started!
PEGGY PORSCHEN PAINTED EASTER EGGS
Elegant Easter eggs painted with Peggy Porschen inspired details, for a chic and pink spin on the holiday.
WHAT IS PEGGY PORSCHEN CAKES?
Peggy Porschen cakes is the London based dessert parlour, featuring intricate cakes, elegant cookies confections and more. The bakery is known for its pink hue and gorgeous main entrance that is often adorned with an array of flowers and festive decorations based on the current season or holiday. The bakery has become an insta-worthy destination, with plenty to discover and indulge in.
While dreaming of a visit earlier this year, I turned the dessert parlour into a 10″ sugar cookie!
The Easter eggs were just as fun to decorate, but much less time consuming, taking only about 15 minutes to complete each one.
You’ll need just a few supplies to create these beautiful Easter eggs at home as referenced below.
EASTER EGG SUPPLIES
You will need at least 3 different shades of acrylic pink paint, as well as green, gold and white paint. 1 black fine tip marker. Faux or boiled eggs, a pencil, the handy cut and downloadable printout below and a pencil.
The shapes can be printed onto letter sized paper and cut with scissors, or you can download the file to your desktop and transfer into silhouette cameo, or cricut to cut the shapes that way.
HOW TO DIY PAINT PEGGY PORSCHEN EASTER EGGS
Please watch the quick video below to see exactly how you can create these eggs for yourself.
Hand painting these eggs is quite easy and forgiving. There’s really no wrong way to make them!
Start by cutting the frame shape and tracing it onto each egg using a pencil. Once you’ve drawn the base shape on the egg, use the pencil to divide the shape into thirds. Draw one square window in the top center of the traced frame shape, drawing the main door rectangle shape below. Draw one long arched window on either side of the center door, followed by an arched line above the door.
Use the darkest pink paint to outline the building, windows and door, and the soft pale pink paint to fill in the building, leaving the windows and the door unpainted. Add gold details to the bottom of the door and the door handle, then paint the shape of a gold vase in the bottom right hand corner of the door. Use the brightest pink to dab flowers from the vase, all the way up around the door and into the top left window. Use the lighter pink paint and dab additional flowers around the bright pink painted blooms for dimension. Incorporate leaves into the floral archway with green paint. Dab a few flowers into the window boxes located at the bottom of each arched window, then write the words “Peggy Porschen cakes” into the top of the building.
Adorn either side of the Peggy Porschen sign with a black dot, then set aside to dry.
Refer to the full instructions for the rest of the egg designs.
The finished result is a gorgeous and creative display for your Easter celebration.

For the Peggy Porschen Eggs:
Download the printable, then cut out the shapes.
Using a pencil, trace the frame (building) shape and additional shapes onto each large egg.
Draw an arched line widthwise 1/4" down from the top line of the frame.
Draw two lines in the inside of the frame (beneath the arch) to divide the shape into even thirds.
Draw one square window in the top center of the middle space, drawing the main door rectangle shape below.
Draw one long arched window on either side of the door.
Now it's time to paint!
Use the darkest pink to paint the outline of the building, windows and door, and the soft pale pink to fill in the building, leaving the windows and the door unpainted.
Add gold details to the bottom of the door and the door handle, then paint the shape of a gold vase in the bottom right hand corner of the door.
Use the brightest pink to dab flowers all the way up around the door and into the top left window.
Use the lighter pink and dab additional flowers around the bright pink painted blooms for dimension.
Incorporate leaves into the floral arch design with green paint.
Dab a few flowers into the window boxes located at the bottom of each arche window, then write the words "Peggy Porschen cakes" into the top center of the building.
Adorn either side of the Peggy Porschen sign with a dab of black paint, then set aside to dry.
For the additional eggs:
You can use the additonal prints to trace a flower vase, and circle shape for main building of the logo.
For the vase:
Trace the vase shape near the bottom of the Easter egg. Paint it gold, then use the same floral technique for creating the flower arche above by dabbing on the pink paint. Incorporate all three shades of pink for variation, painting towards the top of the egg and finish each floral design with green leaves.
For the Peggy Porschen Sign.
Trace the circle shape onto the center of each egg. Paint the interior of the circle with two coats of pale pink paint.
Once dry, use the gold to paint a decorative "P" onto the painted pink circle in the center of the egg.
Decorate the outside of the pink circle with gold dots to resemble the look of the Peggy Porschen sign.
These eggs dry quickly, and will only need to be set aside for aboout 10 minutes before they can be put on display!
This is a very forgiving decorating project. If you don't have pink paint, you can always mix red and white to make your own. Enjoy!
The Peggy Porschen painted eggs can be decorated from start to finish in under 20 minutes (per egg). They’re also an easy project to complete with only a few supplies necessary.
With the majority of us quietly celebrating the Easter holiday at home, this is a gorgeous and creative Easter egg decorating idea to try!
I hope you enjoy this creative spin on Easter egg decorating, and that have a wonderful holiday weekend!
