easter decorations

Last week while running some errands I noticed that easter merchandise is already marked down.
How is this possible?  I haven’t even started decorating for easter.
Not that I mind that if I do desire to add any new easter decor this year it will be at a discount, but the point is that it stressed me out because I immediately felt behind the 8ball.

When I finally reviewed the calendar, I felt better since about a month of easter decorations around the house is about my limit.
So today Master M helped me get the easter bin out of the attic.

I haven’t necessarily started decorating yet, but I took everything out so I can remember what there is and start formulating a plan of attack.
We have about 1 bin of easter decor and to some this might seem like a lot And for others it might seem like nothing.
For us it’s about the perfect amount.
Easter decor3
I made the sheet music frame with the bunny silhouette a few years ago.  It combines two things I love; sheet music & silhouettes.
What isn’t there to love?
The happy easter bunny sign is from Homegoods a few years ago.
The egg & grapevine wreath I’ve had for years and can’t really remember where I picked it up.
Easter decor4
The large Mr. & Mrs. bunny I actually picked up at a local grocery store years ago for a great price.
The big vintage artwork cardboard eggs in the middle are from Tuesday Morning and I use them full of candy every year in the kids easter baskets.
I also picked up the faux moss little bunny on that same shopping trip @ Tuesday Morning.

The sheet music eggs I made a few years ago & you can read the DIY tutorial here.
I’m hoping to make some moss & | or glitter eggs this year.  I’ll share when I do.  Stay tuned.
Easter decor6
The natural colored eggs are from Michaels.
I loved all the shades so much I bought a few bags.
I don’t know if they still carry them since I haven’t noticed them again.
Easter decor7
One of my favorite bunny decorations is this vintage chocolate mold I picked up from a fellow consignor when I was still working in the shoppes.
It is one if the many reasons I miss my consigning days.
I usually use the mold in the kitchen, we’ll see where it lands this year.

My newest addition is this faux chocolate bunny.
I have big plans for him.
I just picked him up a couple of weeks ago at Marshalls.
I’ll share more once all my decorations have found there home for this year.
Have you started decorating for easter yet?  Are you done?
I love all the inspiration out there & can’t wait to get to work with mine.
Happy decorating !

  1. Oh great collection. I love rabbits so I had to stop to look at your post. I linked my spring mantle. I’m #100. I love the music sheet covered eggs. I can’t wait to see what you do with everything. I still need to do some rearranging and get my table set.
    Have a fun Wednesday. Nice meeting you.

  2. Oh goodness I need to get our my eggs and get decorating!!!Everything looks so cute for aster!
    Have a great week and thanks for sharing on the #OMHGWW this week!!

  3. Mary Jo, I just emptied the last of my three apple boxes filled with Easter décor today. I also tried my hand at making some moss eggs. I love your chocolate mold and the large bunny couple is awfully sweet. I try not to buy any more Easter. Three boxes is more than enough. lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC. Oh by the way, a month is about how long I can handle each holiday décor. 🙂

  4. Your bunnies are adorable! I’ve just about finished putting out my Easter things. I’m guilty of having more than one storage box of Easter things, but who is counting? ‘-) I don’t put everything out each year, and this year I’ve really minimized what is out.
    Thanks for sharing your cute things. I have some of the chocolate molds too. A friend got me started on collecting chocolate molds a few years ago. It’s fun. I like to mix them with faux chocolate bunnies.

  5. hi jann- i loved your moss eggs! i want to give these a try as well. i tell myself i’m not going to buy anymore easter as well…but then i see that one item i just can’t resist! lol xo- mj

  6. hi sherry. thanks so much for stopping by & leaving a comment. i just found out some of your comments were going into my spam folder and that’s why i’m just getting to this now. so glad to have you over. xo- mj

I love hearing from you!
