Three Tips for Creating a Tray Tablescape!

14 Jul 2017, by Agricola Redesign Staff in Fun Fridays, Home Decor, Make Me Want To Shop Monday

Layers are having a huge moment in home decor, in the same way they’re stealing the show in fashion! The layered look gives a room (or an object in a room) depth and creates a focal point for the space.


One of the easiest ways to create a layered look is with a centerpiece. You probably have one on your dining table and another on your coffee table. But is it a look you love? Does it feel like something is missing?

If you’ve found it difficult to create a centerpiece on your dining table or an eye-catching look on your coffee table, the design team here at Agricola Redesign is here to help!

We put together these three helpful tips for creating a fabulous tray tablescape you’ll love!

1. When shopping for a tray, you want it to be a similar shape to the table you’re putting it on. So, if your table is round, try a round tray. Have a square coffee table? Go with a square tray.

2. Think about the items you want to display on your tray tablescape, such as a plant, photo frames, or candles. You don’t want to choose too many big items that will overwhelm the tray, but rather, go with a variety of sizes that will complement each other well.

3. Arrange your items on the tray, varying the heights of them all. You can set a photo frame on a couple of stacked books or set a plant on a small box.
