Style your table with minimal Valentine decor that features a beautiful tiered tray.
Holidays are amazing and exhausting! Always full of decorating, celebrations and family. The festivities are wonderful, but fatigue tends to set in by New Year's morning after all those late night New Year's Eve parties. So put your feet up, take some time to relax and indulge in the chocolate on the counter that's been staring you down. Then you'll finally be ready to decorate for the next holiday.
Even though a routine is appreciated after the busy holidays, I still enjoy having a few simple Valentine's Day decorations. One area that I like to decorate with my Valentine's Day decor is my entryway. Changing out the entry table with fun seasonal decor and Valentine's Day is no exception. A great way to add in some decorations is to use a tiered tray.

- Embellish a tiered tray
- Balance your table with a vase or small signs
Create a Focal Point - Wreath
To begin your decorating, come up with a great idea to be the focal point for your space. I designed a visual feature above my entryway table for my main focal point. Using my XOXO wooden cutout, I attached it to a wreath for the perfect eye-catching centerpiece.
The green foliage from the wreath strikes a beautiful contrast with the blush pink paint. Tie the cutout to the wreath with twine for easier removal.
Create Layering by Adding Garlands
An easy way to bring in some fun color and texture is by layering items. Before I added my wreath to the wire frame, I added some simple DIY felt garlands. These bring in pops of color and texture to the frame without looking cluttered and overwhelming.
Keep your decorations clean and minimal if possible. This will help you to avoid decor clutter, even when layering items.
After hanging the garlands, I added my green wreath to the wire and this makes the perfect focal point for my Valentine's Day decoration.
Accent your table with simple holiday decorations that are beautiful and classy.
Valentine's Tiered Tray
How to Create a Tiered Tray for Holiday Decorating
Embellish your tiered tray with these easy tips.
Step 1 - Pick up a stacked tray if you don't already have one
Not only can these be used for home decor, but you can also use them for serving food dishes at parties. A great multi-use item! There are so many options tray finishes. Mine is metal, but a wooden tray or porcelain option would be great too!
Step 2 - Add Fillers
- Candles are a great filler item. (View some here) Place them on the different levels of your tray. If your candles sit too low you can stack them on top of something. (fun black candles here too)
- Flowers and faux plants are essential on tiered trays since they create added texture and can bring in lots of color. You can use artificial or real flowers and achieve the same look. (favorite florals here)
- Glass jars filled with candy. I found these pink and red heart candies at a dollar store last year. Dollar stores will also usually have containers or mason jars you can grab for super cheap. It is always worth it to at least check there first because you can find some good deals. (some other fun glass jars here)
- Figurines and other items. I added the Willow tree "I love you" doll, a house vase and a strand of wooden beads to the top tier. Layering items like these figurines and other pieces of different heights will create more dimension in the display.
Step 3 - Finish up with Greenery
Greenery will fill in the empty spaces and give a more complete look to your stacked tray. Also be sure to use greenery of different shades. You can see I have some dark green and sage green in this display. By adding in different green hues there is more variety and texture. Greenery also helps the tray look full without being too busy or cluttered. (view my favorite greenery here)
The end result will be a beautiful themed tiered tray set.
Balance Your Table
Once you've completed your Valentine tiered tray, make sure to add in some kind of Valentine's Day decor on the other side of the table to balance the entire display. A white vase with flowers and greenery are perfect for simplicity.
Another fun idea would be to add Valentine printables or signs or other cute farmhouse decor. I love how this Valentine's Day decor turned out. It is fun and colorful without being cluttered. I kept it fresh and simple by using greenery with pops of color with flowers and garlands.
