I love using
throughout the year. They’re so versatile and fun to decorate. And they
don’t take up very much space at all. You can create a festive little
vignette quickly and easily.
Here are my tips for decorating your tiered tray.
1. Start with larger items
For this patriotic
version, I added a vintage style navy soldier cloth doll to the top. I won
this one and the marine one a few years ago and love their cozy time-worn
look. The American flag looks so perfect behind him.
On the middle tray, the
floral enamel mugs
were the first things added. One wasn’t quite tall enough so I stacked them
to get more height.
I knew I wanted to use my red, white, and blue
vintage dish towels
so they were the first things added to the bottom tray.
2. Fill in with greenery and smaller decor items
To fill in the gaps, I added some faux greenery, a couple of
vintage milk of magnesia bottles, and a few thrift store pieces that I’ve found over the years. On the
bottom tray I added a succulent for some weight and texture. And I tucked in
a couple of
mini preserved boxwood topiaries
for filler as well.
I just got these vintage milk of magnesia bottles
a couple of weeks ago and love the pretty cobalt blue color. They add a nice pop of
color to the tiered tray.
3. Add a garland
The last thing added to the tiered tray was a strand of wood beads. It’s
like adding a piece of jewelry to an outfit before you walk out the door.
Just a nice little finishing touch.
