Easter is quickly approaching and what better way to spruce up your centerpiece than with Peeps. Yes, I am talking about those colorful, marshmallow candies! For the past four years, my mother has asked me to make a Peeps themed centerpiece to add to her spring decorations, and this year is no different.
To make your very own Peeps centerpiece, here is what you’ll need:
- 4-in. cube vase
- 6-in. cube vase
- Jelly beans
- 30 gerbera daisies (real or fake)
- 5 packs of Bunny Peeps (4 per pack), for a total of 20 peeps
Center one vase inside the other and insert jelly beans (in any colors you like) between the walls of the two cubes.
Place Peeps on top of jelly beans, making sure to save a few for the corners of the vase. Don’t be afraid to squeeze them into the space. You should have enough to fill in any gaps.
Gerberas are usually sold with plastic tubes on the stems for support. Keeping the plastic in place, cut the flowers to desired length and arrange them in the smaller vase.
Cutting shorter stems for the outside flowers and longer stems for the inner ones will give you a nice rounded top. And don’t skimp on flowers: If you don’t want to use that many gerberas, find a pair of smaller vases.
