Fall Tiered Tray Decor

It is so much fun to have a big kitchen island to be able to style for the seasons. With a brand new kitchen this year I have a whole new look for the holidays! I am so honored to be joining 22 other bloggers being hosted by Katherine from Katherine’s Corner for a Welcome Autumn Home Decor on a Tray Blog Tour!

Why use a tiered tray:

Tiered trays are a great way to display more items in a smaller footprint. By going vertical you can expand a vignette for displaying seasonal decor or to act as a coffee bar or appetizer serving spot.

There are as many tiered tray decor ideas as their are different tiered trays. I like to include something natural on mine, like many of the ones above show. Small signs are a fun way to add a message to your tray display.

My Fall tiered tray:

It is the ability to keep my fall kitchen display corralled onto one part of my kitchen counter that made me select this wooden tiered tray for this beautiful fall display. Instead of going with traditional fall colors, I chose a different color scheme this year.

I styled my tiered tray a with a color palette of blues using the blue pumpkins I had painted for my Fall Tablescape in Shades of Blue. It is so easy to

I love to catch detailed shots of my tiered trays. These sweet little wooden cheese boards are the perfect size for setting out some snacks when friends and family gather in the kitchen.

My fall pheasant from Michael’s is a great addition to my themed tiered tray. She is one of the focal points on my tray.

Bundles of raffia add natural texture to the seasonal touches on my tray. Did you know that the leaves of a raffia tree can grow up to sixty feet long?

I always pick out my real pumpkins with interesting stems like this one. When the fresh pumpkins are past their prime, I break off the stems and save them from year to year. I simply add those natural stems to my artificial pumpkins with a little hot glue. It is so easy to use acrylic paint to make your pumpkins exactly the color you want!

Just like the wooden cheese boards, a few small plates add color, and are convenient for setting out some treats for visitors.

Natural beauty adds to the seasonal look of my tray. How many natural elements could I capture in this one photo? The natural pumpkin stem, the wooden tiered tray, the raffia…fun, right?

Figurines, elegant or fun are a great addition to your tiered tray.

Fall decorating is just the most enjoyable for me, I love adding all of the seasonal touches to my home.

Isn’t that cheese knife with its acorn decoration a little cutie?

This large blue pumpkin is a focal point on the bottom of my tiered tray. Make sure you use a mix of larger and smaller items on your tray for balance.

  8. hi Chloe! First of all, I love your tiered tray, it is so unique and pretty with that decorative edge. And I am crazy over your blue pumpkins and pumpkin plate! Love the mini boards, leaves and raffia, and the pheasant is the star! Your tray is one of my favorites of the tour!

  9. Chloe, I love your mix of natural elements for a fall tray! The textures come through even in photos. Having the design vertically layered adds a lot of impact. Although I tend toward ‘traditional’ colors for autumn decor, I’m a sucker for blues and your pumpkins are delightfully striking. This will make a wonderful statement on your island — or anywhere else!

  10. Chloe your tray is overflowing with Fall and I love it! The pheasant is one of my favorite parts and I need to get my hands on some of those adorable little cutting boards. So cute!

  11. Hi Chloe, I love how you’ve taken that gorgeous plate and used it as a theme for your tray. The rectangular shape gives so much more space to display. And LOVE that wonderful blue pumpkin. I’m like you, saving real stems and changing them out for the faux plastic one. Happy Fall!
