A Fall Single Tier Tray
Tiered trays are all the rage right now and can be decorated for all seasons and holidays. But, they can be expensive to purchase and then one must find (or buy) all of the little decor pieces to display on them. Plus, finding a spot to display them and then store them for later isn't always easy. So, here is my easy-peasy solution. I took an empty wide ribbon spool that I had saved and covered it with Fall colored ribbon securing it at the back.
I placed a plastic orange charger plate on top of the spool and then decorated the charger with these items that were in a $5 tiered tray starter set from Target.
I actually tried using just a regular plate the first go round but somehow this just didn't look right. Plus, I was afraid the plate might fall and break.
So, I picked up a couple of very inexpensive chargers at Hobby Lobby figuring I can use them for Fall table settings when not in use as a tiered tray. I realize this isn't your typical tiered tray but I think it looks good and fits the kind of look I wanted. And the pieces can be used for other decorating if I don't want to use them on this tray so that makes everything versatile.
In other decor news, I picked up some faux white pumpkins to add to my flower arrangement that sits atop our pantry cabinet in the dining room. I really am pleased with how this arrangement turned out.
And, I treated myself to this new pumpkin. I think it is so pretty with the white leaves on the silvery background.
It looks pumpkin-perfect on top of this table with the blue vase on the bottom in our dining room. This table matches our foyer table in case you are wondering about the resemblance!
