Looking for a fun and festive way to decorate your Easter table? Try making a DIY Easter candy bouquet for a lovely table centrepiece! Why not incorporate your favourite Easter candies into a beautiful design (that you can eat later, too!)?! This project is easy to do and can be customized to fit your style and taste.
Here's how to get started:
- A variety of Easter candy (including Jelly Beans, Peeps Marshmallows, and Chocolate!) Look at our Easter candy collection to see if any sweet treats intrigue you!
- Wooden skewers or toothpicks
- 1 big vase
- 1 smaller vase (that can fit inside the larger one)
- OR Optional:
- A foam block or styrofoam ball (the size depends on how large you want your centrepiece to be)
- A vase or container to hold the foam block/ball
- Your favourite flowers!
Around 5-15mins (depending on how much of a perfectionist you are!)
How to make a candy bouquet / centrepiece for Easter?
- Start by choosing your vase or container. It should be large enough to hold your candy and tall enough to provide height to your centrepiece. You can select any type of container that you like, but clear glass vases or mason jars work well since they allow the candy to be seen.
- Next, fill the vase with a bottom layer of candy. We used M&M’s chocolate for ours. If you chose the foam block or ball, ensure it fits snugly so it doesn't move around.
- Insert your foam block/ball or second vase into the vase and place it gently on top of the bottom layer of candy you added.
- Take your wooden skewers or toothpicks and insert them into the candy pieces. Be sure to vary the colours and shapes of the candy to make it more visually attractive. We used Peeps Marshmallows for ours!
- Arrange the candy in a way that is pleasing to your eye. You can create a pattern, make it look like a bouquet, or scatter the candy randomly.
- Continue adding candy until the foam or vase is completely covered.
- If desired, you can add other elements to your centrepiece, such as Easter eggs, flowers, or ribbon.
- Display your candy centrepiece on your Easter table and enjoy!
How we made ours
- Try different treats: Each year, a variety of new Easter candy is released; you can mix it up with both new and old treats that you and your guests will love!
- Use fresh flowers: Fresh flowers can add colour, texture, and fragrance to your centrepiece. Be sure to choose flowers that are in season and will match your colour scheme!
- Stick to a colour scheme: Decide on a colour scheme before you start designing your centrepiece. This will help you create a cohesive and visually appealing look.
The Final Product
Remember to have fun and be creative when designing your bouquet. It's an excellent opportunity to showcase your style and make a lasting impression on your guests. Not only is this centrepiece fun to make, but it also doubles as a sweet treat for your guests to enjoy.
