peeps done wrong




One fine day last week, I was perusing the blogs in my Google Reader and stumbled upon this little post. I simply adored that Peeps centerpiece and was thinking constantly about attempting it...Shortly thereafter, I was in luck! Robyn, of Mix Mingle Glow, posted a fabulous and easy tutorial on how to make the Peeps Centerpiece. I was ecstatic. I made the rounds and picked up supplies.

Excuse the heinous & ugly flowers. I was at the mercy of a very lame supermarket floral department. I followed Robyn's easy directions and made this adorable display yesterday. My shining Easter centerpiece.

Imagine my horror, when I awoke this morning, to discover that one (or both) of my wild beast boys took bites out of the ears of three little Peeps while Mama wasn't looking...Far from perfect, but it should make for quite the interesting Easter conversation.

I so love my sneaky, mischievous, Peeps taste testing little boys. Hoppy Easter. May your day be filled with love, laughter and lots of good candy.

The Purple Pug said...

Thanks:) The even more disturbing part is that they had to put their faces into the flower stems and push them aside to take the bites....LOL!
It was an awesome Easter. Those boys never cease to amaze me:)
