Is it too early for Easter decor?

Pin It Now!

I'm K I D D I N G !   Of course I know it's waaaaay too early to decorate for Easter but I had to share these cute faux-chocolate Easter Bunnies with you! I bought them at Marshalls. The one above is big and it was only $12.99! There is also a Mrs. Bunny that goes with him and I'm going back to get her. I wasn't sure I would like these once I got them home but I LOVE THEM! Yes, that's Valentine's candy in the jar and no I don't think it's too early to decorate for that! It is only a month away!
This smaller one above was $4.99! It's so funny, I bought them on my lunch hour and brought them back to my desk. I had them sitting on my file cabinet (because I'm like a kid that way) and everyone that walked up thought they were real! (they also think I'm a little crazy!)

Okay, I'll pack them up now and put them away until we are closer to Easter!  How early is too early to decorate for Easter? Maybe mid-March is okay?

I love your faux chocolate bunnies. In fact, I've got some myself. And it's definitely not too early for Valentine's candy. Are those conversation hearts I see? I sent my hubby looking for Valentine's Peeps the other day, but now I'm craving the hearts!

Hope you have a great day!

I thought Marshall's had closed. Which still-open one do you go to?
And yes, a tad too early for Easter--you can't skip Valentines!

I got these at the Milpitas Marshalls. There is also one in Campbell in the Pruneyard shopping center.

I love the faux bunnies. I am working on Valentine's. Love your blog.

Dream Mom said...

Personally, I don't think it's too early. LOL! I happen to love Easter and all of the pastel decorations which go perfectly in my house.

As for your faux chocolate bunnies-I mean-who doesn't love bunnies?

Looovvve the bunnies! And no, it's not too early for Valentines decor! BTW, Easter is April 12th and mid-March would be perfect for putting out the bunnies, eggs and chicks! I have a pair of stuffed bunnies - Babs and Bruster - who are 54" tall, and I sit them at th wrought iron table on my front porch. (From Cracker Barrel, btw). Don't know if I'll put them out this year as we'll be leaving on Good Friday for a camping and canoeing trip to Savannah area. Have a great day! Becky G.

Gosh, Cindy!! I WANT to go to Marshalls right now! (By the way, did you receive my email about that maaaaany moons ago? I fear it has flown in your spamfolder:( If not, I will forward it again!)
The bunnies are lovely, and it is NEVER too early to decorate for Easter! I think after St. Valentine's day, if you don't consider St. Patrick's day, would be pefect!
Enjoy those bunnies!
Monica.

Ginger said...

Cindy, those are adorable and in the pictures they look real. I say it's never too early for bunnies. I'm not much for decorating for Valentines, but I love the Easter decorations.
Great find you got at Marshalls. Wish we had one here.

Penny said...

Never to early to display bunnies ~
I just finished making an easter garland ~
So, I am with you, Miss Cindy

Kim said...

Those bunnies are great. Nah, you don't have to wait until March. As soon as one holiday is over, it's time to decorate for the next. So I would say....Feb.15?

Southern Lady's Vintage said...

The Easter Bunnies are great! I saw some similar to at Home Goods! They really do look like chocolate bunnies!

Barb @ GritsandGlamour said...

Oh I almost bought one similiar at Ross yesterday. Accept this one was wrapped in different colors of foil lik eyou sometimes see. I like yours much better, although the foil one would not make me want chocolate as much. I would have to keep Cole away from it cause he would try to eat it. LOL
Isn't it funny....u can't wait for Fall, you can't wait for Christmas, you can't wait for Spring - we are so fickle! :-) Hugs, Barb

Fran said...

I love me some bunnies and I love me some chocolate.....so needless to say I love chocolate bunnies...even the ones that you can't eat!

Terri and Bob said...

Mmmm.

I hope that there are still some left for me!

Michelle said...

Looking at those faux bunnies just made me hungry for chocolate! They are ADORABLE! I better head on over to TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Ross...I'm sure their Valentines Day and Easter decor is out!

Pink Slippers said...

How funny--I was just going to head over to Michael's
and JoAnnes to look at there Easter knick knacks. With my coupons and all. BUT, I really like your chocolate bun-buns. AND I don't think it is too early for either holiday. Love+spring time+sunshine=happiness.

Those "sweet" bunnies go with my new diet !! Thanks for sharing.

How nice to see a reminder that Spring is on it's way! It's 20 degrees here with a wind-chill factor of 7 degrees and more snow on the way.....But the promise of Chocolate bunnies sure makes a girl feel better!!! -Sheri

Mary said...

Cindy, They are adorable! I picked up a faux choc santa claus 1/2 off after Christmas.
I think you should decorate right after St. Patricks day!
Thanks for commenting on my window treatment.

Emily said...

Adorable Bunnies! I saw those the other day there. Too cute! I LOVEEE Easter! Your home is just beautiful! You have inspired me!

KJ said...

Love the faux chocolate bunnies. I started drooling, so it convinced ME!

Got a chuckle from the early Easter. Yea, I'm not quite there yet. Let me have my Birthday and Valentine's Day first.

Blessings, KJ

Love the bunnies so much that I rushed over to Marshall's on Stevens Creek Blvd., but unfortunately, they didn't have any. Did find some cute Valentine's themed items, though. I'll keep searching for those bunnies!!!

The chocolate bunnies do look so real. What cute pieces. I think we can decorate for whatever we want when we want, right? Cute post. Hugs, Marty

I'd post a picture if I knew how :)

bj said...

Ummm, these look 'good enuf to eat'.....i saw some here the other day and thought i might get some before Easter...they are so cute.

Brenda@View From The Pines said...

Well, why not? Decorate whatever you want whenever you want, Cindy! I don't think Marshalls will go out of business, as many of the stores are. You give them too much good business!

ROSE VINE COTTAGE said...

Hi Cindy,

Hugs~Kelly

Erica said...

Cindy;

They are so cute. I actually went to a Ganz's Warehouse sale in Canada and bought smaller versions for 1.50 each. But I'm going to Winner's which is the Canadian store here for Marchalls, owned by the same company......to see if they have any of the bigger size like you got.

They are so cute and everyone thinks that they really are chocolate.LOL.

Love, love your home. Erica

The Bliss Journey said...

I love the faux chocolate bunnies. My thought is if the stores are decorating for Easter then it's fair game. I like to put it up early so that I can enjoy it. The holidays always come and go so fast. Start getting your chicks out too.

Tracy said...

Love the chocolate bunnies! I saw one at TJ Maxx this week and I'm ready to decorate for Easter now too!

Melissa said...

It's never too early to plan for the next holiday... but you might be a bit early for the decorating! They're really lovely, though!

Tricia Anne said...

My first glance at your chocolate bunny made me hungry. :o) How fun they are!

Kim@ForeverWherever said...

Wow! They looks so real I think my kids might take a bite!

Koleen said...

I love those rabbits! I have got to find a Marshalls to go to! You always get the neatest things there. I don't think it's too early at all for Easter. Of course, I collect rabbits. Mix it! Put your valentines out with your rabbits.

sandra/tx said...

Too early? I'm not sos sure. Makes me want to get my Easter stuff out. Thanks for the inspiration.

Debbie from NJ said...

Oh these are so cute! I have tiny ones that look real. they are about 3" high with different color ribbons on their necks. I can't wait to put out spring stuff.

Anonymous said...

I have the smaller one, too... I don't think you're all that early.... And definitely by the first of March, you can kind of start pushing the envelope on Easter. Otherwise, it's gone! Love your tassles, by the way...

Gayla said...

ah.. that last post was from me... I didn't sign in... Who signed me out I want to know! haha..

Bre said...

Too funny .....I was worried if it was too early to post for Valentines ...which I did anyway cause I needed something cheerful after the January doldrums.

...good thing I don't have those bunnies. They look so real I'd probably take a bite of them the way I've been with chocolate lately ...can't get enough !

Cindy,
I love the chocolate bunny...I would take the jellybeans out of his basket and buy valentine hershey kisses and fill his basket...place him on a red paper lacey heart and put hershey kisses around him...I think it would be adorable...put a red ribbon around his neck with a little glass drop hanging from the bow...it would make him look velvet and very romantic.
hugs

Bodil said...

Hi Cindy!

I was looking at your cookie recipie and I would like to know what meringue powder is? (I'm not American)
Also I want to paint a wood floor and wood stair white, do you know what paints to use or where I can find out.

Would be very grateful for help.
Bodil.

Too funny! I asked myself the same question just the other day. Can't seem to get inspired to do anything else in my living room because all I can think about is springy, Easter-type decor. I say bring it on! Wonder if it has to do with the fabulous weather we've been having here in Northern California?? Cheryl in California

Debra said...

Love the rabbits! I couldn't get to Marshalls fast enough, and I grabbed the last two that were out. (the smaller version) They have great seasonal decor! Marshalls should be thrilled you're sending so many crazy women their way.
