What do you put on a tiered tray for spring? Here’s how to style the perfect bird themed tiered tray for a spring centerpiece.
Spring has arrived, and the change of seasons is happening inside as well as outside! As the birds sing their song, I’m decorating my nest to reflect the new season. If you’re wondering what you can use as a centerpiece, today’s ideas will fill your head with inspiration! Here’s How to style A Bird Themed Tiered Tray you can use in any room of your home.
I’m joining my Pinterest Challenge friends today, led by Cindy at County Road 407. If you’re visiting from Bluesky at Home, I’m sure you enjoyed Carol’s Simple Fresh Spring Centerpiece Idea. The rest of my friend’s centerpiece ideas will be at the end!
Ideas from Our Inspiration Photo
This month’s inspiration photo comes from Suzy at Worthing Court. Suzy created a pretty Spring centerpiece on her dining room table, centered on a tiered tray.
Here are the design elements that caught my eye in this pic:
- plenty of green
- topiary shapes
- nests and eggs
- variety of textures: wood, ceramic, burlap, rattan
- tiered tray as anchor, dishes gathered around
For my version, I decided to use one of my “DIY Junk Styled Tiered Trays”. See the full DIY and other ways I’ve styled this fun project through the seasons in my post. Because my DIY tiered tray is fairly large, I used it as a coffee table centerpiece. I coordinated it with the rest of the bird themed decor in my Spring living room. You can see the rest of the room in “Decorating the Spring Mantel (with vintage and birds).“
A Bird Themed Tiered Tray
Gather Accessories with Bird Illustrations
You’ll notice that Worthing Court’s vignette has a combination of bunnies and a birdhouse. I went all in with the bird theme, but added one moss bunny as a nod to Easter. You don’t need to have a bird figurine itself for a bird theme. Simply shop your home for accessories that have bird illustrations.
Bird illustrations can be found on these:
- decorative tins
- framed prints
Next, Add Bird Related Items
To fill out your arrangement, find anything in your home that’s related to birds:
- bird houses
- any of the above as illustrations
Fill Your Tiered Tray with Foliage
Spring decor requires plenty of green! Gather faux green foliage and add Spring flowering branches if you’d like, too. To fill in all the spaces around the various elements, I tucked in my “DIY Pinecone Succulents”, along with moss. I also placed vintage books here and there for height as needed.
Lastly, Add Flicker for Ambiance
The candles weren’t lit in Suzy’s photo, but I could see she had some there. I placed one real pillar candle in a tureen, but chose to be safer with battery powered tapers on the tiered tray. With a faux forsythia spray tucked in, the tapers fit perfectly in my “Repurposed Vintage Bucket Rustic Vases”. The rustic wood is a great textural contrast, too. I love easily pushing the button on the bottom of these tapers and enjoying their flicker at night when I’m reading.

Enjoy a Bird Themed Spring Centerpiece
The bird themed tiered tray finishes out my Spring living room decor perfectly! I’m loving all the green, since we still have some patches of snow lingering in our brown yard. And it’s so fun to enjoy my bird-themed accessories all together.
