Hello friends! Welcome to another Friday Favorites, where I shop till I drop around the web for the best of the best things for your home for the best prices. Today we are talking about the BEST tiered stands. What’s a tiered stand you ask? Think of stacked cupcake or candy trays. They also come in egg basket-style tiers. There are a huge variety available rustic tiered trays, wooden tiered stands, stands with an industrial look. They fit in any décor and add real impact to a table.

I LOVE tiered trays. They are so perfect for every room in your house. Use them in a bathroom with towels and pretty soaps piled in. Display them in the kitchen with coffee mugs, herbs and candles. Fill the trays with succulents, rocks and pretty shells and display them on a coffee table or sideboard. Of course, they’re also perfect for any buffet table and really add height and variety to your tablescape.

There are endless ideas on how to use a tiered stand in your decorating. I’ve rounded up a variety of awesome finds in different finishes and styles. There’s plenty of tiered tray inspiration for any home. You might even find two or three tiered stands you need for your house (and they’re at great prices, so why not?!).  So, are you ready to check them out??

How To Style a Tiered Tray

Today’s post is all about tips and tricks for styling a tiered tray!

If you’ve been here for awhile, you know I have a several tiered trays in my home that I like to decorate each season!  Many of you have purchased the trays I have, or similar trays, and then messaged me to say, “Love this tray….now, what the heck do I do with it?!?”

So today I am going to break down some easy tips for styling your tiered trays, and the method I use almost every time!  There is no right or wrong way, but these are just some steps that have worked for me!  I will also be sharing a few ideas for using your tiered tray for entertaining and where to find one if you don’t own one already!

You can also watch me style a tray in video form HERE.

I have several tiered trays in my home, but this one is my favorite!  If you want to snag one for yourself, you can find this one here.

I always clear my tray totally off before styling each time.

I almost always start with an anchor piece on the bottom level.  This might be a sign, a pitcher, canisters or a larger plant.

If your anchor piece is not exactly the right height, I often adjust it with these wood pieces I find here.  That way I can make items the right height, but the wood is hidden by the lip of the tray.  For signs, they are also good so that the bottom of the sign or wording is not hidden or cut off.

I like to add greenery to my tray every time to give it a little life!  I usually have it repeating in opposition on each tier.

This little cutie is from Ikea.  I find most of my small greenery at Ikea, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx or Hobby Lobby.  You can also use real greenery, but watering plants is not a strength of mine, so I usually opt for the faux!

I like to use stackable items as a way to play with height.  In this tray I added these fun mugs, on opposing sides, and the small cupcake stands.   These stands are almost always available at the Target Dollar Spot, and I used my wood pieces to  make them just a little taller.

I always look for fun mini items to add to my trays!  These mini terra cotta pots come in a pack of six for a couple of dollars at Hobby Lobby and are stackable as well.  My five year old and I painted them white and distressed them a little.  These mini white pitchers are also a favorite I have used often.

I found these mini watering cans at Hobby Lobby.  They just make me giggle!  I have often caught my son using them to “water” my tray plants.  Hobby Lobby, Target Dollar Spot, Michaels, garden centers….all great places to keep your eye open for miniature items that add something creative and unique!

To me, what makes the tray most aesthetically pleasing is the repeating items on opposing sides and the overall balance of everything on the tray.  Having the same item, like the mugs or the watering cans or the greenery, on multiple tiers ties it all together for a more cohesive look instead of a bunch of randomness thrown on a tray.

Step back and look at the balance of all the items together.  Adjust heights if needed using your wood pieces, play, move things around and keep adjusting until it all works together.

As I said, this white tray is my favorite, so here are some ways I have decorated my tiered tray for each season!

I also have this rustic wood tray.  It has mixed reviews here, but I have never had any problems with mine!

And again with the watering cans!  Fruit is also a favorite of mine to use in these trays!  Decor you can eat….yes please!

Aside from being decorative, these tiered trays are also great for entertaining!

I have used these wood trays for cupcakes at almost all of my kids’ parties and for showers I have hosted!

I used this tray to make a little ice cream bar last fourth of July!

Displaying food or utensils on these trays saves table space, adds height to your table and is just more fun!

I keep this little tray by my coffee maker.  It holds sugar, marshmallows for hot cocoa in the winter, K cups, straws, etc. that are needed with coffee.

I have seen people use similar tiered trays to hold their essential oils, paint/art supplies, toiletries and makeup in the bathroom, soap and brushes by the kitchen sink….the list goes on and on of ways you can make these trays functional and save counter space!

My white tray sits on the bar in my kitchen, so I often put ingredients in mason jars on the opposite side of my tray:  sprinkles, chocolate chips, marshmallows, straws….you know, all those healthy essentials!  I also often store things we will use in the mini white pitchers, so that our tray is both decorative and functional.

If buying online, be sure to read the dimensions and check that the tray will work for your needed purpose.  For example, the tray by my coffee maker is VERY small!  It can hold K cups and essential oils, but it is not even large enough  to hold a coffee mug.  On the flip side, the rustic wood tray I have is VERY large!  I had a friend purchase it, and the base barely even fit on her counter.  Think about what you want to use it for and where you want to put it and measure before purchasing.  I know this sounds like common sense, but I can’t tell you how many Amazon purchases I have returned over not carefully reading the dimensions!

Below are the trays I have and a few additional ones I have found online that have great reviews!

I hope you’ve found these tiered tray tips to be helpful!  Always feel free to send me your tray pics!  I love seeing your style and creativity!

20 Fabulous Ways To Style Tiered Trays

Hey guys!!!  I have got an awesome round up for you today!  I have recently been redoing my den, we moved in 2 years ago and never touched it.  It is the first room you walk into and we just starting dumping our purses and bags in there and it was bad.  The walls were a flesh colored paneling and I could not stand it so we painted them white, wait I feel like this is a story for another blog post…. Back to tiered trays.

Sooo long story short I have a lot of surface and shelves that need decor in my den so I have been scouring the thrift stores and flea markets in such to build up a stash of decor for this room.  Thanks to Pinterest I have become obsessed with tiered trays, I own 3 now….

my trays

But they are naked, no styling to them whatsoever, they just are sitting there waiting to be filled with all sorts of perfectly arranged bits and pieces.  So back to Pinterest I went, it got me into this tiered tray mess, it needed to get me out lol.

Soo I have gathered for you (and myself) 20 Fabulous Ways To Style Tiered Trays.

These are gorgeous and I want all of them!!  But that required buying more trays and then my husband might cut me of lol.

Want to buy your own tiered tray to decorate?  I have found mine at Ross, Sam’s Club and Save-on-Crafts but you can also find them on Amazon and usually Zulily.

How to Decorate a 3 Tier Tray

Tfarmhouse style 3 tier stand

Do you see all the pretty pictures on Pinterest of a decorated farmhouse 3 tier tray? I do and sometimes think that’s super cute, I can do it. But just like most things on Pinterest they aren’t always as easy as they seem. Decorating these stands can be pretty easy if you keep a few things in mind.

Choose A Focal Point or Object

Most 3 tier trays have at least one object which anchors everything else together. This piece is usually your main focal point and the item you will first put into place. These objects might be your favorite thing or a seasoned item. For instance, if you are decorating for fall it may be a pumpkin. Or maybe for spring, it might be a big floral scented candle in a pastel color.

But just like most things on Pinterest they aren't always as easy as they seem. Decorating these stands can be pretty easy if you keep a few things in mind.

Pick a Color Scheme

Choosing a limited color palette would be my suggestion no more than 3 colors. I believe the more colors you choose to combine in your space, the trickier the decorating becomes.

Something to keep in mind when decorating with neutrals is to choose items with differing textures.

Add Natural Elements

If you were to grab one of your home decor catalogs or magazines, chances are very good that in every picture featuring a room you will find at least a sprig of greenery, a plant, a vase of flowers, fruit, or something living.

Bringing elements from the outdoors inside is a way to add a pop of color and complete the look. It can be as simple as a stem of cotton or a faux plant.

Shop Around

I like to go around my house and find new items when decorating my 3 tier stand. Adding things that match my color scheme. Then I will head outside and see if anything works too. Fresh clippings or something from my garden. This time around I used succulents the girls made me at daycare. The little glass jars they are in were super cute.

It is mid-July so I just went with a rustic theme and browns and greens. In a month or two I will change it over to fall items and post some more pictures.

There is no patience, the tightness of her vagina makes me do reciprocating movements, I gradually go crazy and start to cum like. A groom on their wedding night. The first shot fell on her raised dress, and the second I caught with my fist and almost screamed with pleasure. I sat down next to the stool, looked with annoyance at my wife, then at Svetka and thought, These are the same people, your grandson.
