Hello March! I am so happy you arrived with warmer temps and minutes of more daylight each day. Of course, in Colorado, we will likely have snow in April. In exciting news, I have a new favorite color! It showed up on my St. Patrick’s tiered tray. That’s right I am adding Kelly green or spring green to my decor. I just love this fresh pop of color. It reminds me spring is on the way!
With these ideas, you will have plenty of time to look for green items!
This is the time of year I dig into my Irish roots because when the Spring issue of the Pottery Barn catalog shows up in my mailbox (and inbox) I dream of holding the winning Powerball ticket.
And only if the winning ticket is worth 700 million dollars. Because with inflation and taxes 100 million might be tight.
So I had fun with this St. Patrick’s Day holiday tour.
If you have been a reader at Everyday Edits you know I love a tiered tray. Tiered trays take up less real estate on the counters. My tiered tray is the brownstone of trays.
Tiered trays are everywhere and I will share a few resources at the end of this post. But what I love about a tray for St. Patrick’s Day is I just found or spray painted everyday objects a fun shade of green.
TIERED TRAY IDEAS
I am on a spending hiatus until the market levels out a bit (Realtor life). So this time of year I like to find small accessories around my house.
For this tray I bought three items:
- green spray paint from Home Depot
- green and white coffee mugs from Home Goods
- green and white pom pom garland (bought it last year)
Everything else came from my cabinets.
I used a galvanized tiered tray that I have had for years. It spent too many seasons in storage and I decided it was the galvanized finish. I softened the three-level tray with a coat of flat white spray paint. And then I added the pom poms to the top tier. I loved the look!
Once you have a two or three-story tray you will have finding those tiny knick-knacks in drawers and bins.
Speaking of bins. I store all of my St. Patrick’s Day tray bundles/finds in a clear container with a lid.
Petite objects, the more random the better, add character, charm and whimsy! Who knew an empty kelly green candle jar could look so adorable on a tray (but would get lost on the mantel)?
Usually, less is more, but what I discovered is a tiered tray is like a vertical treasure hunt. It’s a game of eye spy. So more is better for a tray.
If you enjoy a tiered tray I recommend a dedicated box, drawer, or bin to stash your year-round finds. You are limited only by your imagination.
