Spring has definitely sprung around here and I couldn’t be happier! Easter is coming next weekend and the weather is warming up and nature is showing some signs of color. Easter is always so much fun and when you live in a state that gets hit plenty with grey skies, extreme cold, snow and ice all winter long it’s always nice to see the fun colors of Easter make their appearance. One staple of Easter in my house is always a variety of PEEPS®. The fun shapes and colors always make me think spring. What’s even better is that you can use PEEPS & COMPANY® products to help decorate as well as munch on this Easter. This quick, easy, inexpensive PEEPS® Easter Centerpiece will make a fun and colorful addition to your Easter table.
This centerpiece is perfect for an Easter table not only because it fits perfectly into the Easter theme but because once the meal is over and the table is being cleared, the kids can each grab a PEEPS® pop out of it and enjoy a sweet treat. The other nice thing is that this centerpiece is so quick and easy to put together that the kids can help or an older child can even make it on their own.
Quick, Easy, Inexpensive PEEPS® Easter Centerpiece
1 package of PEEPS® Decorated Eggs
9 short skewers or lollipop/cake pop sticks
1-2 packages of Easter grass filler
floral foam (I found a four pack at the dollar store that worked perfectly)
1 Easter basket
Arrange the floral foam blocks into the Easter basket.
Cover the foam and fill in any spots that need it inside the basket with the Easter grass filler.
Remove the PEEPS® Decorated Eggs form their package. Separate and skewer them onto the sticks.
Take the PEEPS® Decorated Eggs on the sticks and stick the sticks into the floral foam. Space them out and arrange them to your liking and there you have it, a beautiful, fun and festive centerpiece.
