Happy Easter, and Happy Spring!!
This year for Easter a friend shared an idea for a centerpiece with me, that I immediately fell in love with. Those who know me, know all about my love of PEEPS(tm)! I actually have a "stuffie version" of them in my home office year 'round, they just make me smile. So, when I saw this idea for a centerpiece, I knew it would be the most fitting arrangement for our table this Easter.
side by side, my two main table attractions
I used a 6" square glass vase. Start by inserting a smaller glass, or vase into the center. The version I saw had marbles in the bottom, I chose to go with jelly beans. I hunted and hunted for the perfect hue to match the PEEP(tm) colors that I had chosen. I settled on these, that were made by Sweetart (tm). Pour the jelly beans around the glass vases edges. Then it's time to insert the PEEPS(tm)! Four of them fit perfectly on each side. Looking back, I wish that I would have had just one more bag of jelly beans to hoist the bunnies up a little higher. (I'm sort of a perfectionist, and it really bothered me that you could see that little bit of 'space' above their ears.) Then it's time to insert the blooms!
an assortment of pastel blooms worked perfectly
It took more flowers than I had anticipated. I actually went back for more, because I wanted them to be really full. A variation of daisies, roses, carnations and mums were what I chose. Watering them is the trick! I used my turkey baster! ;)
I have been contacted by Robyn from Mix Mingle Glow. She informed me that this was her original idea. Upon researching ALL of the like centerpieces on the internet, I have found so many links that it's hard to tell where it came from first. But I will give her credit if she made it first!
Sorry for any confusion. But in the day and age of Pinterest, it's just so darn hard to tell.
