Peeps Centerpiece – Whimsical Easter Table Decoration

This adorable Peeps centerpiece will be the hit of your Easter table. The project is simple to do and uses edible grass for an extra tasty treat.

The kids will love helping you make this fun table decoration. (It will be a miracle if all the candy makes it into the jar!) Join me me making some Easter fun.

Decorating for Easter is a lot of fun. You can add whimsical kid-inspired items like this one and also go all in for a Farmhouse Easter decor theme.

To make the centerpiece, I used a plain drinking glass set inside of a larger outer vase. This helps to keep the layers tidy and also means that you’ll end up using less candy.

Supplies for the peeps centerpiece

To make this project, gather these supplies:

  • 1 package of pink edible grass
  • A bag of robin eggs
  • 1 bag of pastel colored M & Ms
  • Pink tissue paper
  • A package of green bunny Peeps
  • 1 clear vase 6″ x 8″ I used a bulb forcing vase that I had on hand
  • A plain drinking glass
  • 6 foam Easter egg picks

Start by wrapping 1/2 of your edible grass around the drinking glass and inserting it into the center of the larger outer vase.

The pink grass gives a nice base for the Easter candy layers to come!Wrap the glass with edible grass and insert into the vase

Add a layer of Robin eggs on top of the edible grass and then arrange the Peeps on top of the eggs.

Don’t worry if they are a bit floppy right now. We’ll correct that in the next step!Ad the bottom two layers

Crumple up two sheets of the pink tissue paper and arrange it behind the peeps so that they stand straight and are against the outside of the glass vase.

Tidy the Peeps if they need it now.Add crumpled Paper

Pour the pastel colored M & Ms and arrange the other half of the edible grass loosely on top of the vase.Add the top two layers

The final touch

Since Easter eggs are a symbol of Easter, it makes sense to use them in this display.

Add 6 foam Easter egg picks in the center of the vase so that the stems sit in the inner drinking glass.Add the foam Easter Egg picks

That is all there is to it! The whole project comes together in about 15 minutes. (Longer if you have hungry kiddies helping to make it!)

What fun to have a table centerpiece that is decorative and edible!

Finished Peeps Centerpiece

Place the centerpiece on your Easter table or on a side table. Tell the guests to help themselves to the fillings!Peeps Centerpiece

This centerpiece is right at home with my burgundy eggs! See how to make the rope wrapped eggs here.

You could also display it next to Easter lilies, or a bouquet of dogwood flowers. Both of those flowers are symbols of Easter and have special meaning for the holiday!

Some of the other Easter symbols are hot cross buns (a traditional Easter bread with its own national day), butterflies, parades, and Easter baskets.
