Creating a Farmhouse Vignette

I do not live in a farmhouse. However, I love elements that make a farmhouse home. Farmhouse style is so popular and you don't need a farmhouse to enjoy some farmhouse decor. 

Many farmhouse items can be found in many of our homes. Here is a simply vignette that I put together with some items that I consider farmhouse style that you might already have.

I started with an enamel tray. You will often see enamel pieces in farmhouse style.

If you don't have an enamel tray, try using a wooden one or a painted tray. You can even use wood and add handles to make your own tray.

Next I added some old books. I left mine as is, but you could also cover them in plain white paper or burlap. No old books, cover any books you already have.

The books will also give some height to the ironstone pitcher.

Ironstone is a farmhouse staple. Your vignette could consist of various pieces and sizes of ironstone. Add some flowers and you would have a lovely display. 

Here is an Easter display for my table using several ironstone pitchers and some pearls.

I added some curly wooden sticks to my ironstone instead of flowers. I liked the texture of them, but fresh flowers would be nice also.

I added a ball of cotton from a tree here in Florida. You can even see the seeds. (Not farmhouse decor) I just liked the texture.

Next is a mason jar. This one was my grand mother's. Mason jars are also part of farmhouse style. I have lots and use them for so many things. If you don't have any old mason jars, you can find them at flea markets and can even purchase new ones at your local craft stores.

Lastly, I added a creamer that was also my grand mother's. I added these game pieces from a game that I never heard of. I bought it at a garage sale for $1. The pieces all have numbers on them.

If you don't have any game pieces, you could add marbles or wine corks. No white creamer, add a clear container filled. 

With just a few pieces, you too can create a lovely farmhouse vignette. Caleigh, our Doxie likes being in the picture too.
