Decorating the Perfect Tiered Tray

One of our favorite ways to decorate a space is with tiered trays! 

You can do whatever you want with them, and they are a great way to really let your creativity and personality come out. That's why we're giving you five tips for decorating the perfect tiered tray!

1. Pick a theme

Decorating a tiered tray can be overwhelming at first. There are so many options and beautiful things that can be displayed on a tray. That's why we suggest narrowing your choices by choosing a theme. There are endless options to choose from.  Maybe try decorating for the next holiday that's coming up or try a décor style like farmhouse

2. Find a unique tray

There is no rule on what your tray must look like. As long as you like it and it's tall enough to fit what you want on each level then it's perfect! We love finding trays made of unique yet neutral colors and materials (Gray, Black, Metal, Marble, Wood). Play around with ones of different shapes, the sky is the limit.

3. Add some greenery

Make your tray look fresh and lively by adding some greenery. Faux plants or succulents are simple low maintenance ways to add some green to your space. 

4. Vary your heights

Try playing around with the height of your objects by getting items of different sizes, or by using a riser. We like to use easel stands to get an object to stand up and vary the height in comparison with the other items.

5. Mix and Match Materials

A great way to ensure that your tiered tray project doesn't look flat is to use items made of different materials and color.

Add texture by including fabric, unique signs, or faux plants. One of our favorite things to do is pair wood items with sleek white ones. You can even add that random ceramic you have sitting on a shelf in the other room.

By diversifying the materials and colors you use, you create a dynamic look that carries the eye around your tray. The key here though, is to mix and match in a way that compliments your over all look. 

Let us know what you think, and send us pics of your tiered trays! We're always excited to see what everyone is working on.
