Styling My Tiered Tray for Fall

First of all...
I want to apologize about the duplicate send of the post "Three Pumpkins on a Plate"  this morning. I really don't know what happened for that post to jump out like that...but I guess it just wanted to be seen again. ha ha. I must have mistakenly hit a button or something.  :-)


On to today's real post...


Today I want to share my tiered tray with you. It is such a fun piece that I won from The Dedicated House a year or so ago. 

I have had great fun decorating it for the seasons. Earlier this week I shared it with a fun party "Tiered Tray Extravaganza" hosted by the ladies at Thoughts of Home Thursday.


Here is my tiered tray. It has trays and baskets that can be switched out depending on my needs...or whims. :-)




After placing the wire baskets I decided that I wanted to create a nice fall display in them.

I set about styling my server for fall.


I began by going to the basement to shop the house for things to place in the baskets. I began by putting in some faux greenery balls. I love these. (They can be used for so many different applications. On top of urns, or candlesticks, etc.)



They just fit into the baskets. I had to squish them a little to roll them in!




Next I started placing nuts, sprigs, and faux fruits among the greenery balls.


I added several mini pumpkins also.




I have a mix of natural elements and faux ones. They seem to get along.


I decided to move my pretty tiered stand into the kitchen...because it is too large for our tables. 

It looks lovely on the countertop I think...since I have a black and white kitchen.  Any colors that I add seem to "pop" nicely.




I added a couple of fall tea towels (from Marshalls in Lexington)... I have trouble passing up cute tea towels. ha!



And I added a nice fall candle that I already had around the house.

Say Grace.

(If you missed my previous post about my Mary and Martha tiered server, then you will be happy to see that I added these photos of the tags on each basket.)  

Give Thanks.


Practice Kindness.

Here is my previous post about my Mary and Martha server in case you want to take a look.

I guess you all can tell that I love this server! Thanks Kathryn!

My kitchen is ready for fall now. I just need to plan to do some cooking and baking so that my kitchen smells like a kitchen. ha!

You can create a similar tiered look by stacking cake plates. Or make your own. 

I saw a tiered stand that someone made using glass candlesticks from the dollar store and gluing pie plates on top. Just an idea! 

Use your creativity and let's see what you have!

Here are three previous "fall" themed posts in case you missed them. 
Have fun! And thanks for visiting!
