Tiered trays are unbelievably popular. They are extremely versatile and can be changed out for each season without spending a ton of money.
It’s a vertical shape with two tiers and plenty of space to add lots of fall goodies.
Here are some simple tips that you can implement with any style tray.
Decorating Ideas For A Farmhouse Fall Tiered Tray
1. Start with a blank slate.
One of the first things I do is remove all the existing items from the tiered tray to start with a blank slate.
2. Gather your pieces
Choose a variety of pieces that correspond with the style you are going for. In this instance, I gathered fall pieces that can also be used in a farmhouse style.
You want to choose pieces in varying heights and size, as well as coordinating colors.
3. Start with a focal piece.
Begin with the top tier and decide on a focal point. I love this adorable blue truck that I found at Target last season, so I put that front and center.
4. Choose accent pieces.
Add coordinating accent pieces around the focal point. I started adding items until I was happy with the placement.
I tend to follow the rules of threes and it worked perfectly on this tray.
You will see I added a floral tea cup with a neutral velvet pumpkin first, and then ended up swapping that out for a white and blue floral pitcher with fall stems for added height.
5. Decorate the bottom tier.
For the bottom shelf, work in a triangle design starting with two side anchor pieces and then fill in the middle. Again, work in odd numbers. The bottom shelf is larger, so I went with five pieces.
I really wanted the white pitcher with feathers to stand out, so I placed that on the right side and then added a white and blue floral tea cup with a pumpkin to the left side.
The velvet pumpkins were added to the middle, but it still seemed to be missing something. Every farmhouse tray needs wood beads!
The little squirrels are right at home in this fall display. They were a thrift store find a few years ago. Shop your home when you are decorating your tray.
It’s amazing what you can find in your stash. I completely forgot about the little squirrels and they are the perfect accent piece!
6. Add finishing touches.
To add symmetry, the string of pearls were brought in to fill in the right side. Every vignette needs a pop of greenery, even if it’s faux.
Now just take a step back and admire your decorating skills! Add pumpkins or fall decor around the tiered tray to make a pretty fall vignette.
