Today I’m sharing a simple Easter centerpiece with a tiered tray. I just love decorating with tiered trays for seasonal decor or even organizing in the kitchen. For this centerpiece I’m focusing on what says spring to me, with some little blue and white patterns in the mix.

It’s time for our March Pinterest Challenge and I hope your are as excited as I am. This month we are creating tiered tray centerpieces for spring or Easter. If you’re new here, our host Cindy over at County Road 407, selects a photo each month for us to recreate. Each participant puts their own spin on the photo according to our individual style of decorating.
The best part is seeing how everyone interprets the image, and we always have an interesting variety. Be sure to click through all the links at the end of the post. If you’re stopping by from my friend Lora of Create and Ponder welcome! Lora’s bird theme centerpiece is just gorgeous!

Our photo inspiration this month comes from Suzy, of Worthington Court. I adore her classic style of decorating and her effortless way of pulling together a timeless arrangement. Take a closer look at her post by clicking on, Charming Centerpiece For Spring With A Nod Toward Easter.
Here’s a list of what I’m gathering for a similar look and feel for a spring and Easter centerpiece.
- tiered tray
- stacks of dishes
- straw placemats
- rabbit topiary
- bird nest
- small bowls
- spring figurines
- small pitcher
Simple Easter Centerpiece With A Tiered Tray
The centerpiece I’m arranging is mostly things from the kitchen with the addition of some springtime decorative items. I would be perfectly happy with only decorating a tiered tray, but for the Pinterest challenge, I’m going for the whole enchilada.
Note I’m following Suzy’s lead by keeping the tiered tray arrangement simple and not over crowding it.
Decorating With Dishes
Nothing can be easier than decorating with dishes, even when they’re just plain white ones. I think that’s why I have such a fondness for ironstone. The small vintage French pitcher, the little yogurt cups, and the creamers mix in so well with my everyday white plates and bowls.
Our round kitchen table is small, but I’m still able to include straw placemats, and a stack of dishes next to the tiered tray. For color and pattern, I’m using my blue and white transferware salad plates.
Two mini pie plates sit on top of the transferware holding natural colored wooden eggs. How easy is that?
Touches of spring and greenery
Blue and white flower pots hold a couple of herb plants, that I snagged at the grocery store. They will be happy here for a couple of weeks, then I’ll plant them in the garden.
For an extra pop of green I have little mounds of deer moss in the vintage yogurt cups.
I love Suzy’s bunny topiary, but I kind of wish I had seen hers before I made one. Don’t get me wrong I’m so happy with mine, but those sweet little bunny ears sticking straight up are just adorable.

The bird nest is also a homemade craft using sticks from the back yard and preserved sheet moss. If you want to know how to make a bird nest, check out my post DIY Foraged Bird Nest.
Instead of a rabbit figurine I’m using a couple of vintage looking sheep. They’re easy to squeeze in between the ironstone pieces and have the sweetest faces.

If you don’t have a tiered tray, you can use a cake pedestal on a basket tray for a similar look. Gather small items and dishes and play around with the arrangement. Be sure to check out the other bloggers participating this month in the links below for more ideas.
