Hello, friends. Here's a quick and easy decorating idea for you. A couple of days ago I added some natural decor to my tiered tray. It only took a trip to the grocery store and then a few minutes to style it.

I added persimmons, pumpkins, nuts, and eucalyptus leaves for a natural look.

I have to admit, when I first saw the persimmons at the grocery store I thought they were some kind of exotic tomato. They are like a tomato that grows on trees and is sweeter. 

I haven't made anything with them yet though. I really bought them for their color. Is that crazy? I hope not. I love to decorate with produce, lol. 

I also added a few of my dried hydrangeas as filler and a copper tea tin for some contrast.

And a vintage Thanksgiving postcard rests in a flower frog on the top tier. Aren't the colors pretty?

Here are a other few ways you can use a tiered tray:

  • hot cocoa items
  • Christmas ornaments and mugs
  • herbs 
  • succulents
  • bathroom items
  • teas and mugs
  • office supplies
The sky is the limit!

Here's how I styled the same tiered tray at Christmas.

I styled my 2 tiered tray with some blue and white pieces along with a few succulents. It's nice for spring or summer.

  1. These are some really cute ideas, pinned them so i'll some inspiration, thanks.

  2. Oh my gosh.... I love all of these! I will now definitely be on the lookout for tiered trays, even though I see them everywhere! Thank you for all this inspirational fun! I LOVE that piece in your dining room (I think?)with the double doors that open from the center. It is truly just beautiful!
