Colorful Peeps Centerpiece
Adorable and colorful, marshmallow Peeps are good for so much more than just eating – although they are quite yummy. You can use different varieties of Peeps to create a very attractive centerpiece. Robin’s egg candies or malted milk balls in spring colors work great with the Peeps to add a bit of contrast and the colors are perfect for Easter.

Easter Egg Centerpieces
Using up those leftover eggs from the egg hunt is easy when you make them into a centerpiece. If you don’t have any left over, just color a few for your table and you can turn them into egg salad the day after. You just have to choose how you want your Easter eggs displayed which will determine how many you need. Baskets of eggs combined with flowers are always a good idea for centerpieces or you could be completely creative and come up with different methods for displaying them.
