How to Style a Tiered Stand for Fall
Most of us either have one of these tiered stands or we have seen them in retails stores and wondered how to style them. I thought it would be rather simple when I first purchased mine – just throw in some stuff and easy peasy – a styled tiered stand. But, it was more difficult than I had planned. Here are some ideas to help you style a tiered stand for fall.
A Few Tiered Stands Online That I LOVE:
- Galvanized SQUARE 2-Tiered Stand (LOVE this one!)
- World Market 2-Tired Stand: Wire and Wood
- Distressed Galvanized 3-Tiered Stand
- (Similar to mine show) 3-Tiered Wire Stand
So, what is my secret for styling a tiered stand?
Well, I’m sorry to say it’s not much of a secret really. But, I did figure out a few things along the way.
My tiered stand has three layers. I think the third smaller tier makes styling it a bit harder. The first tip I am sharing is simple…
1.) Use filler to fill dead space.
You can use anything. Newspaper, pinecones, moss. I used plastic shopping bags because I had them and they were handy. Using filler in the larger tier prevents you from having to use so many accessories. Here is how I covered up the unsightly filler and is also Tip #2.
#2.) Add some texture in the form of cloth, etc.
Last year during an after season sale, I purchased a few of these French-inspired towels. One of these was perfect for this project. I just loosely laid it inside the basket and let some freefall over the edge. You could use ticking or burlap or any type of fabric or cloth.
Next, I added various pumpkins and an artichoke.
On the second layer, I added some white accessories…a small white pitcher and a cute milk bottle, plus another heirloom pumpkin.
Here is another tip…
#3.) Add some dried flowers.
I added some stems of dried wheat to the white pitcher. It added extra texture and also added some height to middle tier. On the upper level, I simply added a few more mini pumpkins and grapevine gourds.
Once I was happy with how each of the tier’s were filled, I wanted to add a few bits ‘n pieces for accent.
Grapevine which I had cut and allowed the leaves to dry naturally is the perfect element, and Tip #4.
#4.) Add some Natural Elements.
I love the soft green and brown colors of the leaves don’t you? I simply wrapped the stand with long tendrils of grapevine, weaving the ends in and out of the stand to secure it in place.
Finally, I am adding Tip #5.) Bits of Color and Touches of Fall.
Just a few tucked here and there.
Put all of these tips together and here is what you get…
Once I broke it down into segments, it didn’t seem quite so daunting. It also helped that I gathered lots of elements together so I had a good selection to choose from and make decisions as I went along.
I’m tickled pink with how it turned out. Or, should I say orange, yellow and green? 🙂
