A Vintage Farmhouse Tiered Tray For St. Patrick’s Day
On the landing of our stairway we have a small area for my daughter’s shoes since it’s the most convenient spot and I love to decorate the small tiered tray for all the holidays. This one for Valentine’s Day, this one for Christmas and a farmhouse tiered tray for everyday.
This tiered tray I created for St. Patrick’s Day definitely has vintage farmhouse touches and nostalgic pieces like these two Holly Hobbie pieces that I found thrifting. These take me all the way back to childhood – who else had the Holly Hobbie room, lunchbox, bike, etc?!
The rest of the tiered tray is filled with vintage pieces like antique green books, flower frogs, milk glass, and vintage St. Patrick’s Day greeting card. I added wooden shamrocks and a wood bead garland in gold.
A St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape
I used the 1-2-3 Formulas to a Beautiful Table guide to create this table. The parts of the centerpiece are gathered on a green toile tray. An old light fixture’s shade becomes the perfect piece to hold a St. Patrick’s Day centerpiece. Vintage hymnal music is scrolled in a chippy rustic sewing drawer. A shamrock plate with an Irish blessing, a vintage book and more wooden shamrocks are part of this centerpiece. A cloche filled an aged gold candlestick (because what is St. Patrick’s Day without a little gold?) another shamrock and antique button cards fill a cloche. More ideas to fill a cloche are can be found here.
A vintage farmhouse St. Patrick’s Day place setting was creating with a few easy pieces. I used a white wooden charger, shamrocks I cut from cardstock and glass plates. A white napkin and a copper napkin ring completes the place setting.
A Vintage Farmhouse St. Patrick’s Day Mantel
The focal point of this mantel is that vintage inspired chalkboard I created for my back to school decorating. I taped a botanical print of ferns from Graphics Fairy and a sheet of music to the chalkboard.
A collection of vintage pieces complete the mantel – a spool of thread, a flower frog with a ticket, bottles and a vintage St. Patrick’s Day greeting. A patterned green plate finishes off this vignette.

It’s hard to believe the holly hobby is vintage. I remember it way back when! All of your vingettes are pretty and creative. I would love it if you would share this at my Friday With Friends link party: https://myhubbardhome.com/friday-with-friends-advancing-into-spring-link-party/
Right Rachelle! I guess since Holly Hobbie and I go way back I am vintage too! 😉 I’ll head over and link up now!
Kristin, LOL I still use pyrex bowls that are now considered vintage. So, like you, that puts me in the vintage category!
Thanks for sharing at the FWF party!
I have a large Holly Hobbie collection. If it had Holly Hobbie on it, I had to have it, One day, I just decided at my age (and I am definitely much older than most of your readers) that I did need all that stuff. It was in a box in the basement. Took it all to Goodwill, along with another large collection of Santa Clauses. Nice to see Hollie again.
Tawn I love Holly Hobbie! I had a Hollie Hobbie bedroom, lunchbox, all the things! I am so happy to share that love with you!
