Simple styling of a tray for Easter

Styling a tray for a season or a holiday is one of the easiest ways to bring the seasonal decor to your home. When you style a tray, you also keep your decorations “corralled” into a specific area of your home. If I am not entertaining for a holiday, I tend to stick to styling a tray or two to add just a touch of the holiday decorations instead of decking the halls from top to bottom!

I am so happy to be joining the sweet Katherine from Katherine’s Corner in another “on a tray” blog tour! I am honored to be joining all of these lovely bloggers, this time expressing an Easter theme “on a tray”

I stepped into my dish pantry and pondered which of my trays to use. This white wooden tray with the curlicue cut out designs around the edges seemed like the perfect choice for an Easter themed tray.

The first thing I wanted to add was a basket. Aren’t baskets synonymous with Easter? I know if I put candy in it (which I did consider), my husband and I would both be picking at it all week long! So, instead I selected some Spring blooms. Pansies, daffodils and tulips were just the thing. I may replace them this coming weekend with fresh flowers! This collection certainly says “Spring” to me!

The next addition is these cute little green flocked bunnies. I have adored these flocked bunny rabbits since I first saw them several years ago. I think my first collection of them was some little hopping ones supported on wires. I featured those and a couple of the larger ones in my Farmhouse Easter Table. This cute little trio is hanging out near the basket. Do you think they want to have a bite of my pansies?

Another larger flocked bunny hopped onto my tray! I don’t think there is anything as too many bunnies at Easter time!

One of the things I remember from when I was a child is how every single Easter my sister and I had a new dress, a hat and gloves. Sometimes I think we got a new little purse, too. That was such a different time, wasn’t it? I know I looked forward to picking out my Easter hat! Easter bonnets and Easter corsages have gone the wayside for more casual dress for church. I miss some of those traditions. How about you…or do you even remember those? So, I added an Easter bonnet to my tray.

A bed of colorful green Easter grass made for a soft landing space for my bunnies. The addition of some more daffodils spread the flowers across the tray.

This sweet tray is displayed on the bar near my big tavern table, ready for the desserts next Sunday to be displayed around it. In addition to this tray, a centerpiece on my table will be all of the holiday decor that will be needed next Sunday.

Supplies for styling this tray:

Tray
Peach tulips
Faux pansies
Hat
Flocked bunnies

If I wasn’t in the middle of a kitchen renovation, I might have styled my wooden tiered tray on my kitchen island, like I did a few years ago. You can check this one out in my springtime and Easter home tour.

  1. Hi Chloe! Your tray is delightful, my favorite part is the Easter bonnet! That did bring back memories of donning new dresses for Easter Sunday! The carved white wood tray is so pretty and of course moss bunnies are the perfect seasonal touch~ I hope you have a lovely and blessed Easter and that your husband is feeling much better

  2. Chloe,
    Love your sweet Easter tray!! I really like the carved wood!! The moss bunnies are lovely as I have a few of them myself!! And the addition of the Easter hat is perfect…I have the same one too!!! LOL!! Thanks for sharing!! Happy Easter!!
    Hugs,
    Deb

  3. What a pretty tray! You styled it beautifully, and I love that white tray a lot. I enjoyed your memories – my sisters and I always had a new dress, gloves, and hat for Easter, too. Such fun memories.

  4. It’s so pretty and that hat , oh my, it’s perfect! Thank you for joining in the fun my friend. Pinned! xo

  5. I love your tray. The moss bunnies are so precious, and that carved wood tray is beautiful!

  6. love the basket and flowers! Beautiful Chloe! Laura in Colorado

  7. Great tray Chloe. I would eat the candies too if they were in the basket. Lol. Adding the Easter hat was the perfect touch. And yes, I do miss some of the formal traditions gone by the wayside, but I guess they call it progress. Have a wonderful Easter. Share your dessert bar if you get a chance, I would love to see it. XO- MaryJo

    PS. Oh! and the kitchen reno. Looking forward to seeing that although I know it’s hard to live through.

  8. Chole, what wonderful memories you brought back to me on Easter’s long past. I think my mom made are dresses, but I can remember the joy the day brought as we dressed up for Easter Sunday. The little tray of bunnies and the hat make a perfect vignette for spring.

    I hope your husband is doing better, and you are able to enjoy the holiday together.
    Hugs,
    Rachelle

  9. Chloe, your tray is a delight! I do remember getting new Easter clothes each spring, and often my sister and I were dressed alike. New patent leather shoes too!
    Like you, I like to corral holiday decor on a tray for holidays. It makes it easy to move it about where needed at different times. It also grounds a vignette.
    Love the addition of the Easter bonnet. Perfect! Happy Easter!

  10. I love the moss bunnies so much. I bought some this year, too, but didn’t include them in my tray. Your tray is BEAUTIFUL by the way. Pinning to Pinterest Easter Board. Best wishes, Linda @Craftsalamode.com

  11. Chloe, your tray is utterly charming! I agree — you can’t have too many bunnies! (Unless they’re in the garden mowing my hostas…) I love all the details you added, each one a sweet nod to the holiday and traditions. You have such a flair for tray design! Such fun touring with you. Happy Easter!

  12. I have been a fan of the moss bunnies for the last few years. I remembered looking at your darling tray that I didn’t see my little one this year. Your faux pansies look so realistic. Faux pansies are hard to find. They are one of my favorite flowers. Cute, cute tray. I can’t wait to see the kitchen.

  13. Oh, I DO remember those new Easter dresses and patent leather shoes! Such sweet times, with always a big family gathering after church. Seems like such a long long time ago. Your tray is adorable. Loving those little moss bunnies! Have a wonderful Easter weekend, Chloe.
