Here’s a quick view at the Easter Season Tablescape I put together last week. I love how easy and simply it came together. I really thought I had already blogged about this until I couldn’t find the post – and realized that I had only put it on Instagram, not my blog. I swear, Instagram truly is “micro-blogging” – it’s my current favorite social media. I’m “SugarBeeCrafts” on there (and everywhere else) so follow along in the fun.
Let me tell you a little about the elements that pulled this all together…
I was at Michael’s and saw these unfinished wooden crates – I think they were only $5. They are actually made to hold CDs, but I just liked them. I considered staining them but ultimately the unfinished look won.
I had it in my mind that I wanted to make a couple of crates, but buying them sounded so much easier! I wanted something to replace the crates I had to give back to Trevor:
So with the crates in my cart, I still didn’t know what I would fill them with – – until I was checking out, and saw the Peeps display – it was put there for my personal inspiration. I grabbed 2 packs but wished I had grabbed 4.
I used skewers I already had and just poked them right through the peeps. I filled the milk jars with jellybeans to bring in some more color, then surrounded them with this fun Easter grass (I love it so much more than the plastic kind).
It adds a little seasonal cheer in my dining room:
The kids CAN’T WAIT for the season to pass so they can eat the dusty decor. The anticipation grows daily. As does the hardness of the peeps – but apparently the majority of people like stale peeps anyway?!?
Do you ever use candy as decorations?? Let me know I’m not the only one!

I’m impressed the peeps and candy have lasted this long! They would’ve been long gone in my house and I don’t have kids here consistently either… hahaha

I’ve only used candy for displays at parties. Then it is eaten really quick. Love jelly beans so could not resist your display!
I have a peeps wreath this year! I’ve become obsessed with a holiday wreath nestled into a more seasonal larger one. My spring/summer wreath is just green twigs and leaves, so last week I had a shamrock wrapped wreath hanging inside it… now it’s positively exploding with peeps! I used toothpicks and just stuck them in there — figured out midway through it was easier to NOT break the peeps apart, they bend anyway! I also learned the hard way that I should have started on the inside and worked out. I just used a cheap-o 14″ straw wreath and even left it wrapped in plastic. It looks fabulous!

You are definitely not alone! I have a vase on my table right now that is layered with peeps and jelly beans!
