New in the Shop: Hand-Painted Easter Eggs from Austria
Easter is celebrated in beautiful ways throughout the world. This season, we’ve collected hand-painted easter eggs from Austria. Peter Priess eggs are created by a husband and wife who buy thousands of eggs and sell the whites and yolks to bakeries so that nothing goes to waste. They take the delicate shells, clean them, and decorate them with gorgeous, miniature designs.
Ornamento is the only store in the San Francisco area carrying Peter Priess eggs. Floral designer Orna Maymon traveled to New York to purchase the Peter Priess eggs for the shop. Peter Priess does not sell their eggs online and does not take credit cards. They’re an old-school business with family values, and we’re thrilled to offer their special creations this Easter season at our shop in the Fairmont Hotel.
Whimsical bunnies and spring scenes are perfect for hanging on your mantel or from a frame on the wall. Though created as Easter decorations, they’re appropriate for all of your spring decorating. The delicate flowers are a perfect fit here in the Ornamento shop, surrounded by our fresh flowers and fragrant blooms from all over the world.
Stop by and see which of the hand-painted Easter eggs speaks to you. Peter Priess eggs make wonderful keepsakes, and especially poignant gifts for adult children in your life who will treasure a gift that harkens back to Easter baskets full of candy and toys.
At Ornamento, we have the privilege of enjoying each holiday through the eyes of those celebrating the ones they love. We hope you’ll come by and share your Easter story and look for a beautiful gift to celebrate your family, friends and those closest to your heart.
