If you’re looking for Easter Tiered Tray ideas, look no further. I have a unique and versatile idea to share with you.
I have a variety of tea cups and as many of you know I like to use things or create something useful with them. With a quick stop at the thrift store, a little spray paint, and my tea cups, I made a serving centerpiece!
Easter Tiered Tray ideas Instructions
My first find was a candle holder.
I painted it with white Rustoleum spray paint.
After letting it dry for 24 hours, I placed my different tea cups onto the candle holders.
If you want it to be more secure you could use silicone, hot glue, E6000 to adhere the cups to the saucers and the saucers to the candle holder.
I placed it on my dining room table. I can use it as a display or …
I can use it as a serving tray of sorts … fill the cups with different treats for afternoon tea.
Another option would be to place it outside and put birdseed and or water in the tea cups and make it an outdoor bird feeder.
Shop any of these stores and I receive a small commission at no cost to you.
Other ways to use a themed tiered tray:
- A fall tiered tray with teacups filled with beautiful fall leaves or other natural elements.
- A fourth of July or patriotic tiered tray with teacups filled with red, white, and blue jellybeans.
- A Mother’s Day tiered tray with teacups filled with flower blossoms.
- An Easter tiered tray with teacups filled with Easter eggs.
- Include a tiered tray in a springtime vignette.
- A St. Patrick’s Day tiered tray with teacups filled with green and white jellybeans.
- Add a tiered tray to a coffee bar with teacups filled with cream and sugar.
- Could be used for hot chocolate with marshmallows and other filler items.
No matter if you use this for easter decorations, decor pieces, in a little nook, spring season or made to match your color scheme for year-round use, you will find there are unlimited possibilities for your own tiered tray! Kitchen island or on the coffee table, this is the perfect way to add pops of color to your favorite places in your home while adding a unique home decor piece to your collection!
This is brilliantly simple and handy Chas. It is perfect for a bridal shower, or a little girl’s tea party. What an adorable way to use old teacups. I use to have lots of them, but I downsized to about 10 favorites. They are so feminine and worth having and using.
Thank you so much Leanna, and what great ideas on other ways to use them. I don’t like keeping things hidden in cabinets and such… always looking for ways to use things.

Love this idea with using vintage teacups! Would be so lovely as feature for a baby shower or a celebration! Great idea with the candle holder to give them some height!!
Thank you so much Sam, I’m thrilled you like the idea too. Love the idea to expand it for celebrations too.

Chas, what a creative use of a candle holder omg! And I totally want to come to this party btw 🙂 Awesome job!
Thanks Tarah and you are more than welcome anytime 🙂
I love repurposing, creating displays AND tea cups. Cute idea!
Thank you so much Cindy 🙂
Michelle Leslie says
What an amazing idea Chas. Love how it turned out
Thank you so very much Michelle. I was so happy to use the tea cups instead of letting them just hide in a cabinet 🙂
I love how you repurposed the candle holder! Now I want one! And tea must be in the air. I have a post “brewing”, and I saw a Tea Party blog hop recently, too.
Thank you Liberty and I can’t wait to read your post too! Yes spring must be the time of year for tea parties 🙂
Michelle James says
I have an old candle holder like that & am definitely going to paint it! Love how you used the tea cups! Adorable ?
Thank you so much Michelle, and I’m thrilled you’re going to transform your candle holder too. Can’t wait to see what you do with it.

Chas…I just pinned the teacups server to my upcycle board, I think it would be great with dips and vegetables too!!!!
Thank you Michele and yes that is a fantastic idea – love that. Thanks for the Pin 🙂

Chas, that is sooo clever! I use teacups every day for tea, occasionally for soup or something, but it would never occur to me to combine them with a candle holder like this! #BloggersPitStop
Thank you so very much Jean, and love that you use your tea cups everyday. They’re so beautiful I just don’t want them sitting in the cupboards.

What a great way to display your beautiful teacups! Thanks for sharing with us at The Blogger’s Pit Stop!
Thank you so very much Roseann 🙂 Happy Mother’s Day
What a great idea, so many possibilities. I’m tucking this away to do in the future. Thanks for sharing on the Classy Flamingos party. Come visit us again this week we enjoyed your post.
Thank you so much Linda, and I’ll see you at the next party 🙂
Thank you for sharing at #ThursdayFavoriteThings. Pinned and shared.
Thank you Marilyn, I truly appreciate you sharing and Pinning. Have a great week and see you at the next link party.
That’s just lovely. I see these slightly odd candle holders in Charity shops and have never once thought ‘you know what that would be great for – tea cups!’
Perfect for any buffet, wouldn’t they be nice for a tea party, to hold a selection of teas. Or even for a winter hot chocolate bar. You could even go crazy and put tealights in them and make it a candle holder again!!!
Thank you so much Julie. You are so right the possibilities are endless and you can have so much fun with what you use it for.

Thank you for sharing at #OverTheMoon. Pinned and shared.
Thank you so much Marilyn, I really appreciate it. Have a wonderful weekend.
What a pretty teacup centerpiece. That would be so pretty for Easter or a tea party. I would never have thought about painting it but that completely transformed it.
Thank you so much Andrea. I thought the tea cups looked better on white. and a little more spring/summer like.
