A few weeks ago I styled my tiered tray for the holidays and filmed a couple of Reels and Tik Toks. The plan was to style a few tiered trays but that didn’t quite happen. I had no idea what direction my tiered tray would go when I started. It quickly turned into a Santa tiered tray. And I love how it turned out.
Last year I styled my larger three tiered tray in a gingerbread theme. This year I wanted to use my newest tiered tray (that I used for the Fourth of July) because it’s three tiers but it’s not super large so it would be easier to decorate.
That’s one takeaway I always like to share when it comes to tiered trays: the larger the tray the more difficult to decorate and more items you need to use.
Let me show you how I styled my Santa tiered tray this holiday season.

SANTA TIERED TRAY
When I styled my tiered tray for the Reels and Tik Tok I did it on my bookshelf. It’s easier to photograph/video and my kitchen doesn’t have to be perfectly clean in order to decorate it!
I snagged the little milk for Santa bottle from Hobby Lobby recently. It was a fun find!
A few easy items to use when styling your tiered trays: mini houses, mugs, mini trees, bottle brush trees and large ornaments. The red houses are from Target but I also have some white houses that I use year round.
Got some empty space to fill? Stick a bottle brush tree or two in that spot and you’re good to go.
I can’t explain how happy this tiered tray makes me feel. I didn’t have to overthink it or mull over it. I just grabbed a few items and it kind of came together. Honestly that’s the best way for me. I don’t like to have to really put a lot of thought into my tiered trays.
You can see that I switched up the bookcase shelves between the time I took these pictures and my dining room decor update.
I get asked about the noel sign often and I wish it was still available. It was from Joann Fabrics last year and I was drawn to it because it looks like a sweater! I wish I had more in more words and colors like a deep green or white…so hey Joann if you’re listening 🙂
Carefully I moved the tray over to my accent table. I switched out the Santa mug in the front because he belongs in my kitchen! I wasn’t using this Santa mug so I put him here and popped a bottle brush tree inside. Easy peasy!
You can see a sneak peek of my kitchen and I’ll be sharing that very soon. Along with everything else…
