What are Tiered Trays?

Tiered trays, also known as serving trays or tiered stands, have been around for centuries. Prior to becoming a popular home decor item, many were simply used to display baked goods such as pastries and cakes.

Tiered trays come in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes making it incredibly easy to find one to fit your decor needs. So, it doesn’t matter if your tray is wood, metal, 2-tiered or 3-tiered, they all can be beautifully styled to complement any theme, holiday or occasion.


How to Style Tiered Trays

Tiered trays can be decorated using items readily found in your home such as cups, mugs and figurines but if you’re looking for themed or customizable sets, you can find vendors on websites such as Etsy.

Below you’ll find over 100 seasonal and holiday-themed trays to inspire you year-round.
