Salado will have several family Easter events, including blowing your own glass eggs, decorating ostrich eggs, Easter Sunrise Service and Easter Brunch at local restaurants.
Blow Your Own Easter Eggs at Salado Glassworks
Instead of hunting for eggs this year, try being a part of the experience at Salado Glassworks by blowing your own custom glass blown Easter egg.
Reservations are now open at the Salado Glassworks website — www.saladoglassworks.com — where you can purchase a “Blow Your Own” Easter Egg experience for kids, adults or whole families.
Reservations cost $47.50 per person; family members young and old can create lasting rare memories of this incredible artistic process. Participants ages 3 and older can actually participate first hand in blowing their own glass Easter egg.
Location: Salado Glassworks Dates: Friday and Saturday- March 30, 31: Times: Friday- 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm, Saturday- 10 am – 4:30 pm
How does it work?
The glassblowers get the initial gather of glass, pick up the color, reheat and shape the piece for completion. With the help of Salado Glassworks’ professional artists, participants use their breath to help shape the egg. The customer may pick up to three colors to craft their glass egg.
Reservations are required for the “Blow Your Own” Easter Egg event, and spaces quickly fill.
Don’t miss your once a year chance to give the gift of a lasting memory to yourself and loved ones. This is a family friendly event and and ages three years old and older are welcome.

Decorate an Ostrich Egg
Join Salado Winery for the ultimate Easter keepsake and wine tradition! Buy your tickets today to decorate ostrich eggs at the Salado Winery for Easter. These ostrich eggs are keepsakes and people tend to come up with some fun conversations over wine. It’s pretty awesome.
Cost is $45 per person. There will be wine since it is a winery, so it’s up to each parent as to whether it is “kid-friendly”, but certainly there may be a kid there and prices are not discounted for kids. Unfortunately the ostrich egg farmer didn’t sell us discounted eggs for your awesome artist kid.
When you join us, you’ll receive a cleaned ostrich egg (they have to be prepared ahead of time by scrubbing them with vinegar and a toothbrush. Aimeé is a real diva about the whole thing, which is why we have to charge you so much.), decorations, paint, egg dye, and a glass of wine included from Salado Winery Company & Salado Wine Seller. You will be able to take your wine glass home as a keepsake, as well.
PLEASE brainstorm before you come. Look up your favorite designs on Pinterest or think about a milestone of that year. Bring some of your own decorations, if you’d like. Classes will be lead by our favorite entrepreneur and small business coach, the owner of Bangarang Consulting, Aimeé Nesse.
Must be 21 to consume alcohol. Please bring your government issued ID to prove your age.
