Hello friends, today on the blog it’s a Summer on a Tray Blog Tour! I always enjoy creating vignettes and this one was extra fun, I call it the Ladybug Garden. I invited some lovely bloggy friends and tray decorators to join me for a Summer on a Tray Blog Tour. Wait until you see all of the amazing and creative trays, you will love them all! Please remember it doesn’t matter if the tray has one tier, two tiers or three, or if you use a little something out of the ordinary as a tray. Adding a tray filled with summer will surely bring smiles your way.
If you’ve arrived here from Our Tiny Nest welcome, and thank you for continuing the tour. You will be inspired by all of the creativity being shared, and your pinning finger will get achy, but it’ll all be worth it. (smile)
The Ladybug Garden
I found the inspiration for my ladybug garden tray when I “spotted” 😊 a little ladybug on a leaf. Ladybugs are lucky, so what a great way to bring a little good luck into our home. I was initially concerned I had gone to far and maybe shouldn’t have put so many things into the tray. I asked my hubby what he thought, he replied, ” that’s a ladybug garden”.
I started my tray by adding a cake plate. I don’t have a 2 tier tray so I like using this method. I threaded some ladybug ribbon through the edge of the cake plate and I filled the inside of the tray with faux greenery. I plopped a small faux topiary into a red mug ( mug from dollar tree) then I added the wooden ladybugs and signs. I threaded a few wood beads on some bakers twine to add a bit more natural wood too. A sprinkling of daisies, sweet treats and little ladybugs finished the tray.
I threaded some wood beads on bakers twine and draped it here and there.
more bakers twine was used to add ladybugs to the beaded planter
Live life in full bloom is a reminder that life is short, make every moment count.
