Nothing inspires creativity quite like a package of Peeps in the springtime.
These three seasonal window displays showcase the marshmallow bunnies and chicks in fatigues, fancy hats, as cherry blossoms, and more:
The vintage furniture and decor store Miss Pixie’s brought in David Ottogalli, a self-proclaimed Peeps artist, to construct its window display. He and a crew fashioned thousands of Peeps–more than 4,100 according to his website–into garlands, cherry blossoms, and what looked like a Japanese garden sculpture made of Peeps.
Ottogalli, whose online bio says he is “obsessed with artificially colored food,” has been making Peeps art since the early 1990s . Miss Pixie’s sold the garlands for $10 each to benefit We Are Family DC.

The five finalists in the Washington Post’s seventh annual Peeps diorama contest, Peeps Show VII, are on display at the newspaper’s 15th and L street office. Each year, District residents come up with an impressive variety of clever and intricately constructed Peeps-centric scenes. This year, I was especially drawn to the funeral service for Twinkie, but I’ll always have a fondness for local scenes like the line at the Black Cat , a finalist last year.
Proclaiming “TELL YOUR PEEPS EASTER IS EARLY THIS YEAR,” quirky gift shop Chocolate Moose is pimping out its Peeps merchandise in a spring window display featuring bunny and chick screens and over-sized Peeps figures.
