How do you style a three tiered tray for a vintage farmhouse Summer? With sunny pops of yellow, vintage flash cards, old buttons, toys and milk glass.
This pink tiered tray has been decorated for every theme and season in between. For spring and Easter, for Christmas and Halloween. With pigs, blueberries and swans. I think a tiered tray is a perfect way to create small vignettes and decorate a small space in your home easily!
Ideas to Decorate A Tiered Tray For Summer
Themes for A Summer Tray
- beach/coastal/lake – use seashells, small wooden boats, and fun signs
- summer fruit – lemons, watermelon, strawberries, peaches, or blueberries
- patriotic – Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day
- bees/butterflies/lady bugs
- gardening – terra cotta pots are a great DIY for this, vintage inspired garden flashcards and seed packets would be perfect
- sunflowers or another summer flower that you love
What To Put On A Summer Tray
- Flowers – faux summer florals (tulips, daffodils, lilies, sunflowers)
- Summer fruit – faux fruit in wood, plastic or ceramics
- Books – whether these are real or a faux book stack they create height on your tray
- Wooden Bead Garland – make your own with this creative upcycle
- Vintage Flash Cards – These or this set from Twigs & Fluff are perfect for summer but they come in every theme
- Animals – This filler is a favorite of mine. I’ve created an entire pig themed tiered tray and this Valentine’s tier tray with entire menagerie of farm animals.
- Bottles, jars and small pitchers – these can hold flowers picks or just sit empty
- Cupcake Stands – great for lifting items and creating different heights in your tray
- Wooden Summer Signs – create your own with this patriotic dollar tree repurpose
- Thrifted and vintage pieces – the sky is the limit on this! If it will fit on a tray and goes with your theme go for it.
How I Created A Vintage Farmhouse Summer Three Tiered Tray
To make the three tiered tray I used the same colors and items throughout, white and yellow, faux floral, and vintage pieces, to make my tray cohesive.
