As much as I’ve been trying to not succumb to the pressure, as of yesterday, I finally broke down and started decorating for fall. With it officially being September, I knew I had to eventually jump on the “I love Fall” train before it was too late and left the station. I kind of had no choice in the matter as you can see!

I’m slowly pulling out my fall decor and inventorying everything I have. I’m the type of person who needs to see all my decor in front of me before I can formulate a plan. Can you relate?

I had somewhat of a good idea of the fall decor in my totes, but I did snag a few new things on sale at the end of the season last year and also purchased some new pieces a couple of weeks ago when I was out shopping for our lake house master bedroom. I must admit that seeing all my fall decor in one place did in fact give me “All the Fall Feels!”

I was able to completely set-up my fall tablescape on Monday and then started moving my attention to our bar and coffee area next. Although I’ve had some pieces for the bar area that I’ve used in previous years when decorating for fall, I knew I wanted to switch things up and add a little more to that particular space.


Just recently, I purchased a new galvanized tiered tray from Marshalls. I had a wired tiered tray prior to buying this new one and although I liked it, it was rounded along the edges and was made more for holding fruit. I personally didn’t need my two tiered tray for fruit but rather to hold all my coffee bar essentials.

My new two tiered tray is much larger and also has a flat bottom. This makes me super happy because now I can load it up with all the things and up my decorating game! I didn’t worry about doing too much to the tiered tray for my summer decor since I only had the tray for a couple of weeks so I just set my eyes on really doing it up with fall decor instead.

After looking for tiered tray decor ideas on Pinterest, I felt inspired to pull together some fall decorations for my own tiered tray. Let’s take a look at what I created for my very first fall tiered tray.

If you happen to be new around here, you might not know that we live on a lake. When it comes to our home decor, I try my best to bring the colors from the lake inside our house. Blues, teals, and greens are the common colors you’ll see in our home decor year-round.

Although challenging at first, I’ve now learned how to easily switch up the decor from season to season with minimal effort. You’ll want to click over to the post, 5 Ways to Easily Change Your Home Decor for Every Season, after reading this for sure!

I knew I wanted my two tiered tray decor to be in my traditional blue and green colors to go with the rest of my fall decor. I also knew it needed to be functional because I actually used my galvanized tiered tray every day to hold all our coffee supplies.

To start, I added a layer of moss to the bottom of my two tiered tray. If you have high sides on your tray as I did, you might want to add some paper to the bottom of your tray first and then cover it up with the moss on top of it. The paper will give you some height so that the items you’re displaying inside the tray don’t get hidden behind the sides.

The next order of business was to gather the items that I actually needed on this two tiered tray. I’m referring to our essentials. Those items were my coffee and tea containers, sugars and other sweeteners, and my spices. I started playing around with the placement of them on the tray until I was somewhat happy with how they looked.

Once I had my essentials in place, I got to work on the fall decorations for my tiered tray. I found a gorgeous kitchen towel at Joann’s last year at the end of the season that I pretty much used to inspire the entire color palette for the tiered tray. I had a variety of pumpkins in different sizes and shapes to add plus some floral pieces to tie in with the colors of the fall kitchen towel.

Just like I did when trying to find spots for my coffee essentials on the tiered tray, I just started playing around with the look of the tray by adding the fall decor pieces I had. I wish there was an exact formula to doing this but really it’s just about moving things around until you’re happy with the outcome.

The one key tip I can give you for your two tiered tray decor is to have greenery and flowers available to fill in blank spaces. Not only does it take up a ton of room, but it’s also pretty cost-effective as well.

I’ve got to say, for my first attempt I was definitely happy with my fall tiered tray decor. I hope my tiered tray decor has inspired you to think outside of the box when it comes to your fall decorations. Give it a try and see what you can create!
