The color red represents good fortune & happiness, while the egg is a symbol of fertility. The ginger represents the mother who during her postpartum healing eats foods cooked with ginger. The dinner is also a time for the mother to come back out in the social world since traditionally, she's been at home healing for 30 days.
For Lila's Red Egg dinner, Meli & Angi made these "Red Egg" cookies for all the guests. We used 3 different types of writing on the eggs for variation. They were a hit with all the guests...definitely more of a treat than the actual red-dyed eggs that were given out ;)
