Happy Easter, Peeps

Need a quick & easy centerpiece idea for this week?

easter-centerpiece-peeps.jpg

Here’s what you need:

7 oz (or about 1/2 a pound) of green jelly beans

10 pink bunny Peeps

1  14oz clear plastic cup

12 yellow gerbera daisies

1  4.5″ square clear vase

img_0957.JPG Set the clear cup in the center of the square vase (use a glue dot or double stick tape if necessary) .

Pour the green jelly beans evenly around the perimeter of the cup.

Carefully pour water into the cup, filling it about halfway.  (Wait until after you  have added the jelly beans to put water in the cup since they have a tendency to fall into the cup!)

Place the Peeps between the cup and the vase (3 on two sides, 2 on the other sides)…they will fit perfectly.

Cut your daisies short, with the taller ones in the center.

Of course what makes this fun and easy is that you can use whatever colored variations of the jelly beans, Peeps and flowers you’d like.  Couldn’t be easier (took me less than 15 minutes total).

Happy Easter!
