Now that Easter is just a few weeks away it’s time to break out the bunny rabbits, colorful eggs and tasty terrible Peeps to make it another epic holiday. But this year instead of rounding up the kiddies and going on an old fashion Easter egg hunt you can try your hand at the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt being held in New York City. For this giant treasure hunt 275 eggs are scattered throughout the city, each measuring in at an astounding two and a half feet high, with an average of 36 pounds, decorated in impressive motifs by some of our favorite fashion designers and artists.

Game-goers have three weeks from April 1 to find all of the eggs for an opportunity to win Fabergé Egg pendants, valued at $30,000 and $48,000 respectively. But if running around the city like a crazy person doesn’t really appeal to you, you can always browse the beautiful artistry of the eggs online or bid on one of your favorite designs to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. Bidding started yesterday for the highly collectable eggs and prices are currently between $500-$7,600 (at the time of publication). If a massive, brightly-colored egg doesn’t match with your home décor, smaller collectable eggs are available from the Big Egg Hunt site. The profits from the event are 100 percent charitable and help raise money for children in New York City through Studio in a School, and conservation efforts through Elephant Family, saving the endangered Asian elephant and its habitat.

Where’s Waldo & Gentleman’s Valise

Some of the eggs are designed to be comical, like artist Martin Handford’s Where’s Waldo, others open to reveal decorated insides, like designers Hellman-Chang’s Gentleman’s Valise. Some look like juvenile painting or collages, while others take on abstract form that barely resembles an egg—even in shape. Fashion photographer Terry Richardson’s narcissistic design (titled I Am The Eggman) would probably not find its way into the average living room, but designer Carolina Herrera’s Royal Blue with gorgeous blue and white china patterns would be welcome palette in any home. With remarkable favorites like Ralph Lauren’s cowboy or Pilar Proffitt & Robert Bristow’s gilded cage, we’re going to have to seriously step up our decoration game come Easter.
