This fantastic cascarones idea comes from my mother-in-law, also know around these parts as Nana. For those not in the know, cascarones are confetti filled eggs you crack over an unsuspecting victims head at festive occasions. There is a 10 day celebration in San Antonio called Fiesta, and cascarones are a huge part of it. People also enjoy them at Easter and Cinco De Mayo.
These festive eggs handmade by Nana and DKITW are filled not with confetti but with dried rose petals! It is (almost) lovely to get hit over the head with sweet smelling rose petals. Also, they easily compost in place, unlike confetti which lingers on for weeks and you find small pieces of months later in your shoes. Fiesta!
