Easter Peeps Centerpiece

I love cooking, baking and decorating for any type of holiday or celebration.  I have to admit decorating isn’t always my strong suit, but love the way it jazzes up a room and perks everyone up.

Pinterest is a great place to find ideas.  While browsing the site I saw so many darling Easter decorations, but Easter Peeps Centerpieces were plentiful.  I’d love to say this was my creation but it’s not. Although based on the variety on Pinterest I’m not sure who created these.

Here’s my version, although I have to say my jelly beans were with all the Easter candy, so I would have thought them to be pastel colored – they’re not.  Even still, I think my centerpiece is darling!

What do you think?

Easter Peeps Centerpiece


  • 3-inch cube vase
  • 5-inch cube vase
  • Jelly Beans
  • Gerberas Daisies
  • Hyacinths
  • 1 pack of Peeps



1. Center smaller vase inside the other and insert jelly beans (colors of your choice) between the walls of the cubes.



2. Place Peeps on top of jelly beans.  Don't be afraid to squeeze them into the space.  Fill the gaps if possible. 


Gerberas are sold with plastic tubes on the stems, perfect for supporting them.  Keeping the plastic in place, cut the Gerberas and plastic if needed, to desired length along with Hyacinths, and arrange in vase.  Flowers around exterior should be cut shorter than those towards the center of the vase….Select your favorite flowers!


I used a 3 and 5 inch vase but you could also use the 4 and 6 inch vases or even rectangular vases.  Whatever suits you.

I’m lousy when it comes to floral arranging but this is easy.  These vases can be used all year with various colored marbles, rocks, shredded colored paper or jelly beans.  Then fill with your favorite flowers.  The perfect low centerpiece anytime.

Isn’t it adorable?  I sure think so!
