My regular blog readers will be able to correctly identify this as a Handy Freddy creation. The large part of the barn is actually a facade attached to the television puppet theater, while the door and chicken coop are mostly free-standing structures. It's all made out of cardboard, and the only costs were for the red spray paint and some red duck tape. Thanks, Freddy!
My Big Martha handled a lot of the country-farm-themed decorations, including everything on the mantle. Folks were impressed with her collection of antique tins...my only contribution was the Clabber Girl baking powder container, which is not an antique and came right out of my pantry. That's proof that I made a really good decision in handing off a large part of the decorating to my mom.
My Big Martha took the kids' farm toys and made a super cute display on the dining room table. See the farm table runner underneath the toys? Yep, that's all My Big Martha. Thanks, Mom!
Other small farm scenes were scattered throughout the house, including this tractor that I put to work next to the punch bowl. It held the bottle opener and permanent markers so that guests could write their names on the plastic cups. How's that for fancy, y'all?
