Spring Centerpiece: Jellybean Tower

If you’re looking for a candy centerpiece idea, this Jellybean Tower will add a little vintage sparkle and warm colors to your table.

The photo below shows you all of the parts to this centerpiece:  three vintage, glass candy dishes {one of my new favorite accessories} and three glass votive holders.

You can find vintage candy dishes at just about any thrift store or antique store.  I bought these at a thrift store for only $2.00 each.  The glass votive holders are available just about anywhere — the grocery store, craft store or Wal-Mart.  As you can see, I filled two of them with jellybeans and used one as a vase for the ranunculus.  These flowers are brilliantly colored and have tons of petals that actually look like paper.  Very pretty!

The final step is to stack each part on top of the other beginning with a candy dish and ending with the flowers.  Add extra jellybeans in the top dish {optional}, and you’re done!  Needless to say you can use any color of jellybeans you wish.  I wanted warm hues, hence the yellow and orange.

The great thing about using clear glass items is that they become whatever color you want them to be just by what you put in them.  So don’t ignore a pretty glass container even if you want something colorful.

One other point — this tower is best suited for adult gatherings.  Unless you glue all of the parts together, the display can topple over so use your discretion when children are around.  I’m pleased with how this centerpiece turned out and I’m sure it will make for a fun dinner conversation.
