Valentine Tiered Tray Decor

I've finally managed to do a bit of decorating for Valentine's Day around here which I'll be showing you in some upcoming posts.  Today, I'm sharing how I put together my tiered tray for this, the "love month".   I've mentioned before that tiered trays are a great way to add seasonal decor to one spot in your home.


I usually place mine on the end of our kitchen island and it definitely sets the tone for whatever holiday or season we are celebrating.

This year, I chose a red and white colour scheme for my Valentine's tray.

On the bottom tier, I placed a stack of small white bowls with a heart, a red pot with some greenery, two lovebirds and a Love Lives Here sign.

The top tier had a similar look with a red pot and greenery and small white dishes with hearts.  I found some tiny white pails at the Dollar Store and they were perfect for holding cinnamon hearts.  

I tied a white lacy-looking drink coaster to the top of the tray with some gingham ribbon and taped a red heart to the front of it.  Red and white gingham ribbon was tucked in here and there on both levels.

This is the view of the tray as you walk in the kitchen...

...and this is the view from the other side.

The top tier on this side holds a white house, a birdie and a heart with more gingham ribbon.

On the 2nd tier, sits a red house, a Bee Mine mug, another pail of cinnamon hearts and an Our Happy Place sign.




I tucked greenery, a faux red rose and gingham bows here and there on this side as well.

Do you do any decorating for Valentine's Day?
A tiered tray is a great place to start!

This isn't a sponsored post but if you are interested in getting a tiered tray like mine, I got it online at Amazon and it's called the Creative Coop Two Tiered Wooden Tray (here).



Here's how I decorated it for Valentine's last year.

Thanks for visiting!

Absolutely lovely! You have a perfect sense of compositional balance in this tier, in the whole kitchen. I just love everything you've done. As a side note, that tiny white bucket probably is not lead-free (Dollar General/China sort of thing). Would cupcake papers work inside it?

Again, this is so artistic. Your have a gift. :) Thanks for sharing.

That is beautiful! I love all the green pops of color too against the red and white. Pinned.

I saved both--love this years AND last year's! I think you've convinced me to finally get a two tiered tray!

I have several tiered trays, but am tempted to order one like yours. I like the way you've styled it both last year and this. Fun to change things up! Happy Valentine's Day!

I love your Valentine's Day tiered tray! I'm a sucker for a pretty decorated tray. Lol. This one is awesome! I also love that little gnome in the background. He's adorable!

Honestly, Lori, I just love your Valentine's Day tiered tray! You've inspired me to do a little Valentine's decorating of my own--I haven't done ANY this year, but I can imitate you and pull together something along these lines (on a much smaller scale). You've set a great example!

Thanks so much for joining the Grace at Home party at Imparting Grace. I'm featuring you this week!
