Peeps and Petunias Easter Centerpiece

March 19, 2018
Good Tuesday Morning Dear Friends!

How many more days do we have to wait for Spring ...not a single one! Say what... I know how excited we all are to kick off the Spring Season. How about we start this week with a Springtime tablescape bloghop and an easy DIY Peeps and Petunias Easter Centerpiece.

Incorporating colorful Peeps Candy into our Spring and Easter Décor is a fun and an economical way to add a touch of whimsy.

Using Peeps in Easter décor isn't anything new. In fact I made a Peeps Easter Centerpiece a few years ago. But just for fun for 2018 I put a new spin on it by using some different vessels and a new product that I stumbled across at the craft store.

This fun and colorful product is Bunny Batts Funfill and I love it! (No advertising here, I just wanted to share this easy to work with fiberfill.) It's not messy and I think a really great alternative to Easter grass, plus it's reusable too and can be used for other Spring projects. I placed the fiberfill on top of the petunias and then added a few Easter Eggs.

To begin this project I used a Trifle Bowl for the foundation of this project, then tucked in a couple of colorful petunias and placed them inside a moss pot that was just a wee smaller than the trifle bowl.

Next up I added the Peeps. I used three packages and had two leftover (which I did not eat, I really prefer to decorate with peeps, not eat them!) How about you????

Tuck those little colorful peeps all around the moss pot.

I just love the pastel shades of Spring, I have missed them so much and I bet you have too.

Thank you for joining me today, I appreciate you all so very much and your sweet and supportive comments from my Wispy Willow Flower Farm post just warmed my heart so much! So THANK YOU!!

This group of talented ladies are sharing their beautiful Spring Tablescapes throughout the week and I am sharing some of their photos and links right here. There will be plenty of joyful, colorful and happy Tabletop Inspiration to celebrate Spring!

  1. Oh Jemma, I love PEEPS! I made an Easter basket for Francesca and filled it with Pink Peeps, even though she's only four months hehehe. The blue ones are cute, and this is a delightful centerpiece. I am noticing those bunny candle holders, they are darling. And I really like those sparkly eggs. You always give us so much inspiration, dear Jemma, when working on your home projects. : )

    love, ~Sheri

    Many thanks for the ideas and inspiration.
    Easter is so close now.

    All the best Jan

  3. Adorable Jemma! Your peeps centerpiece is so cute. Looking forward to your table tomorrow.

  4. That is so cute, Jemma! I haven't bought Peeps in six very elderly neighbor in our previous home, was the only one I had ever known who liked Peeps (my kiddos didn't even like them when they were little). I would always buy them for this neighbor, and it was fun because they have Peeps for every holiday!

    Happy "Spring" to you, sweet friend!
    Hugs, Carol

  5. Honestly, Jemma, does your creative mind ever go on "hold"? This is so clever and fun -- and really so darned adorable! What's not to love with bunny peeps and eggs?!

  6. What a darling idea! It looks soo springy and fun! Your tutorial was excellent, as I am a visual person, and it was nice to "see" how you put the arrangement together. Happy First Day of Spring :) Hugs!

  7. Love this Jemma. Oh my gosh peeps and petunia's how sweet is this. Enjoy that nice Texas early Spring.
    We are still cold here. Probably won't see any Spring weather for a few more weeks. So enjoy this first day of Spring.

  8. Finally a good use for Peeps! I think they are horrible to eat but so cute in your decoration!

  9. So many cute ideas in that one trifle bowl, Jemma! And I don't think I've ever seen bunny candlesticks like those - Nutcrackers?!
    The way you packed that trifle bowl reminds me of much of the purge packing I've been doing, lol....layer after layer, tightening things up. Glad your box arrived without issues.

  10. Oh Jemma, those blue peeps are beautifully put into your vase. You're having fun, aren't cha!!!!! How I wish I could take the time to really decorate, but my spring break is next week, so if I can at least clean my house and put away the winter décor and start freshening up things, I'll be happy. Happy spring, my dear friend!

  11. I love your Peeps and Petunias Easter Centerpiece. The centerpiece is so pretty. I am partial to Peeps,since that is all the Easter candy i can eat. I am allergic to peanuts and chocolate.

  12. What a gorgeous centerpiece. The colors are beautiful and appropriate for Spring and Easter. The centerpiece is lovely and elegant. Thank you for sharing.

  13. Oh Jemma, your peeps & petunias made me smile. So colorful and cute! I bet your Grands will be delighted! Hugs, Cecilia
