Before styling your own decorative tray, you should first gather the personal belongings you want to use. Check if you have the following in your household:

  • Plants (leafy, flowers or succulents)
  • Pottery & Vases (a range of colour, patterns, sizes)
  • Candles (votvies, taper or pillar candles)
  • Sculpture Figures — small figurines or a statement piece
  • Perfume Bottles & Aroma Sticks
  • Decorative Soaps
  • Decorative Cutlery

Set these items in front of you and look at them thoroughly. Consider if you have items of the same color or similar interior style/aesthetic.

Your items will help you decide what type of decorative tray you’re going for, and where you want to place it.

For what interior style to choose, also check out on StyleMag: HDB Interior Design Styles Young Homeowners Love (Other Than Scandi).

Choosing A Tray

The type of tray you choose can either make or break your decorative tray.

Consider the following when choosing a tray:

  • Size — How much space do you actually have? Are you placing your decorative tray on an open dining table as a center piece, or on a small side table next to your sofa? 
  • Shape — Do you want a classic rectangular-shaped tray? How about a homely round tray?

Tip: Rectangle trays help accentuate items with round or soft features. Rounder trays accentuate vertical, straight objects.

  • Color — When styling, trays with neutral colors are the most versatile.
  • Depth — Consider if the decor items be seen if the tray is too deep.

Interior Styling Rules

Before styling your decorative tray, you should learn about basic styling rules.

At its core, a decorative tray has the following:

  1.  A Tray — the base for your decorative items.
  2. A Personal Belonging to give your tray personality. This can range from trinkets to a photo of a loved one. 
  3. A Living Item — plants, or something related to nature
  4. An Object With Height — typically be a vases, candlesticks and statuettes.

Consider following these simple interior styling rules to make your tray more visually pleasing:

Rule Of Three 

Collate objects into groups of 3 (or odd numbers). They can be separated by size, shape or texture.

Tip: Less can be more, so it’s recommended to use larger objects.

Visual Triangles

Arrange decor items so that it forms a triangle. Experiment with the heights of your objects to avoid creating ‘blocky’ formations. Put your tallest object in the middle and taper off with your decor.

Add an anchor piece

An anchor piece is the main attraction to your tray and is your most eye-catching piece.
