Easter egg dyers of all skill levels are welcome! Bring your own boiled (or blown!) eggs and we’ll provide wax resists, vinegar baths, and dyes, and, of course, take care of all of the clean-up. (We’ll also have prepared eggs available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis)
When you’re done working on eggs, enjoy a round of badminton under the shade of our 140 year old pecan tree and try a mango-hibiscus iced tea, a fresh-squeezed lemonade, and maybe even a rice krispie, too!
