Of course, that may be after a few Irish lemonades!

How To Decorate A 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.

I usually add seasonal scarves, or decorative paper to the bottom of the tray.

This time I used St. Patrick’s Day scarves.

You can see how I decorated this same tiered tray for different seasons below:

2. Gather your pieces

Choose a variety of pieces that correspond with the style, or holiday you are decorating for. 

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 piece.

I wanted the adorable little gnome from Dollar Tree to be the focal piece, so I put that front and center.

On the bottom shelf, the little truck was the focal piece.

4. Choose accent pieces.   

Add coordinating accent pieces around the focal point.

I start adding items until I’m happy with the placement.

I tend to follow the rules of threes and it worked perfectly on this tray.

Add finishing touches

To add symmetry, the mason jar with babies breath gives some height.

I also added a few drops of green food coloring to the water in the mason jar, for an extra pop of color.

Also, every vignette needs a little greenery, even if it’s faux, like the succulent.

The most important thing, is to just have fun with it.

It kind of reminds me of decorating a doll house when we were kids.

It’s no surprise, that was one of my favorite things to do!
