Christmas tiered tray decor ideas to help your home say happy holidays is what we have in store for you today. Do you have a tiered tray? If not, you'll be adding one to your winter holiday decorating list.

These Christmas tiered tray display ideas are filled with jolly holiday inspirations.  Each little farmhouse winter holiday tiered tray is an excellent conversation piece.


Tiered trays are lovely places to display your family holiday heirlooms or a new collectible item you want to show off. They can be used as a coffee bar center, a fruit stand, or a seasonal vignette.

We have a fun little surprise in this roundup, so let's not stall anymore.


Tiered trays are trays or plates that are stacked one on top of the other with spindles in between to add space for items like food or accessories. Christmas tiered trays are tiered trays decorated with Christmas decorations like bottle brush trees, gnomes, mini farmhouse Christmas signs, Rae Dunn mugs, and more.


Our blogger friends did not disappoint us when we went searching for great Christmas tiered tray decor for the holidays. The color-popping themes they use to accessorize their tiered trays are something we can't wait to share with you!

Lindsay takes her time to tell you how to repurpose items you might already have to make your tiered tray.

I want to sit with her and have a cup of coffee and hear stories about those antique looking Santa mugs and cute little tiny trees.

If these mugs could talk, would they tell stories of eggnog, hot cocoa and Christmas laughter?

Every one of them looks well loved.


Remember we told you we had a little surprise in this weeks round up?

Well, our surprise is we jumped over to Instagram and asked some of our friends if we could share how they accessorize, and style tiered trays for the holiday season.

We're excited to show you their talents!
