Easter PEEPS {Easy and Edible} Centerpiece!

Easter PEEPS Centerpiece

 I have an Easter Peeps centerpiece for your table that’s easy to assemble and edible too!


I like to decorate with my Peeps with hatching chicks in egg shells for Easter and candy skewers in vases for Halloween.


To make this centerpiece, you’ll need Peeps, candy for filler and two vases~ one vase smaller and shorter than the other. I used a set of square vases I found at Michaels with a 40% off weekly coupon, but you can use round vases too.


I used jelly beans that look like speckled eggs and bunny Peeps for this easy to assemble Easter centerpiece! Center one vase inside the other and place your jelly beans or candy of your choice between the walls of your vases.


And for fun I added some Peeps to peek out among the flowers on bamboo skewers!



There is no right or wrong way to make this centerpiece. . . use all one color or multiple colors of Peeps, or let your Peeps multiple like bunnies and arrange them in multiple rows!


After your Easter Peeps are assembled add water to your inner vase and add your flowers. I used some long-lasting alstroemeria from the grocery store, along with some tulips (not so long-lasting :)


Since I’d rather play with my Peeps than eat them, I can replace the flowers and enjoy the vase for the next three weeks between now and Easter.


Or if you’re like a lot of Peeps-fans, your Peeps will be deliciously stale to enjoy after Easter!

    I love those little peeps. Not much for eating them either. I think the purple and yellow ones go great together in a display with colored eggs. Your centerpiece looks wonderful Mary. Thanks.

    Peep-a-Boo Mary! Delightful, I love the peeps on skewers among the flowers! I saw quite an assortment of peeps at Walmart the other day, I was going to buy some and was overwhelmed with the choices! I think your bunny peeps are the cutest for Easter and they are perfect for peeping out in a vase of jelly beans 🐰

    This is so lovely. I don’t think we can get Peeps in England (I’ve never heard of them before) so I’m off to the shops late to see what I can get instead.

    Hi Mary, I must be one of the few of your readers who actually LOVE to eat peeps! So this centerpiece is perfect for me ~~ I can have my peeps and eat them too! Your peep creations never fail to delight me for all holidays. You must think about making a book. You can call it Home is Where the Peeps are! :) Linda
