Pinterest Inspired Easter Candy And Tulip Arrangement

Easter is in less that a week! I wanted to share a Pinterest inspired arrangement I made the other day using jelly beans, edible grass, bunny peeps, flower suckers and tulips. Everything including the vase can be purchased at Wal-mart. There is also a vase inside the vase that is holding the tulips...it came from Wal-mart too.
 
 I love jelly beans, peeps and tulips so it's no wonder it caught my eye on Pinterest. The only thing I added to make it different was the candy suckers.
 I also added a bowl lined in peeps that holds jelly beans. Boy are they going fast! I can't keep my hands out of them! lol...
 I was going to do a step by step tutorial but got so excited and in a hurry that I forgot to take more pics! Sorry about that! You can get the idea though...I added a small vase with water in the middle of the large vase and layered the jelly beans, edible grass, peeps and flower suckers. Last, I added the tulips. This could also be done with silk flowers.
 
 
It is very simple to make and everything can be bought at Wal-mart! It would make an adorable centerpiece for your guests at Easter.

What a beautiful centerpiece! And I love how easy and simple it is. Only problem I would have is putting the Peeps in the vase...I usually open them as soon as I get in the car and start eating them. I must admit, Peeps are my favorite Easter candy!

This is adorable. I saw the peeps someplace else...and that is just too cute. Maybe if I did an arrangement, I wouldn't eat them!
