Christmas Farmhouse Tiered Tray

There is no limit to what you can display on your farmhouse tiered tray. At Christmas time that doesn't change. Here are some ideas for your tired trays to add some festive cheer.

Why are Tiered Trays so Popular?

We all know that tiered trays are perfect for displaying your decor. You may wonder why tiered trays are so popular? When did the trend start? It goes back to the 19th century when afternoon tea served as a bridge between lunch and dinner. Tiered trays were used to offer tiny sandwiches and cakes. They were a great way to serve due to their elegant design space saving size.

How Do You Style a Christmas Tiered Tray?

Rae Dunn pieces are popular on tiered trays, as well as gnomes, Santa, vintage items, mason jars, small candlesticks, and cute marshmallow mugs. Also, pops of greenery are easy-to-find decor items that will add a farmhouse aspect to your farmhouse tray.
