A Farmhouse Tiered Tray

 When Valentine's Day weekend was over, I took down all my Valentine decor.  I looked at my now empty tiered tray and thought "Now what?".  Even though Easter is only about seven weeks away,  I wasn't quite ready to pull out the Easter bunnies and eggs yet.  I would have done a winter themed tiered tray but all my winter florals are packed away with the Christmas decor and there is absolutely nothing left in the stores;  they have all moved on to spring already.  So,  even though it doesn't make a whole lot of financial sense as the decor in this tray will probably only be up for a few weeks, I decided to go with a farmhouse theme for my tiered tray.  And I'm so glad I did, because I actually think this is my favorite theme ever!  Even though my house is kind of on the "grand scale", I do live in a farm land area and I see cows and other animals almost on a daily basis;  so I think my farmhouse theme fits in quite well!



EVERYTHING you see in this tray, including the tray itself, I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  It is all part of their spring collection, usually located in the front of the store.

So let's begin the tour of my "Farmhouse Tiered Tray" shall we?

The top tier of the tray features a galvanized sign that I hung from the top of the tray.  I also placed a little ceramic house.  I didn't realize until I got it home that the little house also lights up, which I think is super cute!



To the left of the house I put a ceramic cow and to the right I set a stone bird on top of a cupcake holder.





On the lower level of this side of the tray, I placed a ceramic pig and a miniature milk can.  I always use painted wooden blocks to lift items up in the tray.


 



Isn't this pig the cutest?  I just love him!

To the left of the pig I placed another galvanized miniature, then I filled it with ivy and pink flowers to match the pink pig.





In the third and final section I have a blue and white ceramic dish that also has a cow image on it.  I placed an antique jello mold that I already owned inside the dish and then filled the empty spaces with ivy.



On the top level of the third side I placed a galvanized metal bucket and filled it with ivy and white florals.  It sits right next to the bird on the cupcake stand.


 

 You can find all these items, except the antique jello mold, at your local Hobby Lobby store.  The lace tray that the tiered tray sits on is from Ikea.

 
  Every time I walk into my dining room and see my farmhouse tiered tray I smile.  I'm so happy I spent the money to decorate my tray during these gloomy final winter months before Easter.

Have A Great Day!  Amy

  2. Have always liked the lace tray your tiered tray sits on. Really frames your tiered tray so well. This is a darling arrangement of farmhouse items. That cow and piggy are precious. I have a ceramic sow and about 8 nursing babies a long time ago that were my aunt's pieces. Had them displayed on a blanket rack. One day when we were sitting at the dinner table, the piggies and their mom leapt off the blanket rack and onto the floor where they broke to bits. I was so sad. Maybe I will get one of these Hobby Lobby pigs to replace those I lost. Really sweet!!

  6. Lovely arrangement on your tiered tray Amy! We don't have a Hobby Lobby store. Sounds a bit like Michael's. I love craft stores! I keep my Valentine's decor up till the end of February and I also have some winter decor that I'll keep up till I start my Spring/Easter decorating. Can't wait for spring!

    Blessings!

    1. That's a shame they haven't moved into Canada yet. Hobby Lobby is amazing and is nothing like Michaels. It's more like Michaels and JoAnn's Fabric and Crafts combined and on steroids! It's the BEST craft store there is! Thanks so much. I can't wait for spring either.

  9. What a wonderfully creative idea you have there Amy! Loved it. The cute little pink pig and the farm theme gave me nostalgia of a movie "Babe", back from my childhood days around 1995 I guess. Your style of using common utensils in creating an aesthetic object is something that I should take up in my craft works too, do check https://www.bloghasting.com/ for ideas on bridal make-ups.
