I am so happy to present my very first metal tier tray post! You would have to be living under a rock not to notice everyone posting pictures of their decorated tier trays on their blogs and Instagram accounts. Tiered trays are the hottest home decor item on the market today, and after buying my own tray and decorating it, I can see why: they're FUN!
The "grass" was a square of grass that I cut into pieces to fit my tray. This filler really completed the Easter look of my tray. It also pushed all the objects up a bit so they could be seen better.
Now if you're new to this trend, you're probably wondering what to put in your tray. The answer: Anything you want! I've seen just about everything and anything in these trays. My advice is to always put in some floral or greenery, and use different sizes of objects.
My tray sits in the center of our dining room table. I plan on leaving it there and changing the decor with the seasons/holidays.
As I was creating my tray, I started to think about why they are so popular. I think with the whole "Minimalist" movement going on in our society today, it's a way of decorating on a very small scale that doesn't involve a lot of money, time, or totes and totes of decorations. It literally took minutes to put this cute tray together and when Easter is over, everything will fit nicely in a shoe box. I love it!
I did put a few Easter decorations out elsewhere in my home. I hung an Easter welcome sign outside my front door, and I also created this Easter vignette on my newly painted dining room hutch.
Everything on the hutch I already had except the grass and the "He Is Risen" sign. I bought those at Hobby Lobby. Gosh, how I LOVE finally having a Hobby Lobby in my hometown. I love their products. I use to have to drive almost an hour to go to a Hobby Lobby store. They are hands down the best arts and crafts store in America.
The metal lace vase is from Ikea. I filled the milk glass bowl with grass and three faux eggs. I just love the wooden sign from Hobby Lobby. It's so pretty.
As soon as Easter is over, I plan on decorating my metal tier tray for summer. Lemons are super hot in home decor so I was thinking of doing a lemon themed tray.
So what about you? Have you jumped on the metal tier tray decor bandwagon yet? I'd love to hear from you!
