Easter Candy Themed Tablescape

Easter Candy Themed Tablescape

For Easter this year I put together a tablescape with a theme of Easter candy.  Even if I am too old for Easter egg hunts I surely can still enjoy eating some of my favorite Spring time sweets!  The mix of bright colors makes a fun but not too stuffy Easter meal.

I made Easter basket cupcakes made up of green frosting, chocolates, jelly beans, and a candy grass handle.  The entire thing is 100% edible!


For each place setting, a little Peep is perched in their very own graham cracker house with candy grass.

The table was inspired by the colorful mismatched placemats I found at World Market.  Who says you have to have matching placemats?  I love being able to fall in love with each individual one.

The centerpiece is simple--a collection of cupcakes and a few more Peeps hanging out in a bowl of candy grass.  A small house plant adds some additional height and color.

Each place setting also got their own chocolate.  I found these fancy chocolates at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods.  The pretty packaging adds a bit of color and also serves as a fun take home for guests (in case they aren't sugared up enough!).

This tablescape is so easy but definitely feels special.  Using the food to double as decor makes for less need for table clutter.

To make your own Peeps graham cracker houses, some tips at keeping your house standing long enough to admire:


To keep the graham crackers in place, I glued down a frosting "x" so it would stick to the plate.


I then glued down frosting for the side walls.


 Put up walls.


Reinforce the standing walls by frosting the inside and outside of the connecting graham crackers.


Let dry so that the walls are strong enough to hold the roof.  If you have time, I let most of mine dry overnight.  While you wait you can fill them with edible grass (found at Walmart in the Easter section) and Peeps.


Once walls are dry, frost on the remaining two graham crackers for the roof.

  3. The Peeps in the bowl like 2 little lovebirds--I just died! Your table design is so pretty and fun. I can't get over the fact that you made birdhouses for the Peeps. Love it! :)
