Cute Tiered Trays In Cotton Candy Colors

I recently created some easy and inexpensive tiered trays for a ladies luncheon.

The beauty of this project is that it can be created in any color palette.

You just need spray paint, small cordial glasses/goblets/candlesticks, clear glass plates and epoxy glue.

I found most of the glassware/candlesticks at Goodwill but you can also find clear glass items at Wal Mart and the Dollar Store.

Simply spray just the backs of the glass plates in three thin coats letting the paint dry completely between applications.

Once all your pieces have been painted and are completely dry attach the candlestick or goblet to the plate with epoxy glue.

Because only the backs of the plates are painted the trays are technically still food safe.

However, I recommend adding a paper doily just as an extra measure of precaution.

TIP: You can add a third level to the trays by topping it with a mason jar.

The trays were used in various areas throughout this lovely home.

The luncheon started at 11 am and there was such gorgeous morning light when the desserts were set out I couldn’t resist snapping a photo.

I think the pink and mint color combination is my favorite.

After the luncheon, and a quick hand wash, the tray made its way to the Fashionista’s room where it now holds jewelry.

Happy Friday Friends!

That's a really cute idea and an inexpensive way to have decorate trays for party tables!

Absolutely lovely! I can see them used for weddings, showers (bridal or baby), Easter etc.

Perfect for any holiday, really, by using seasonal color paint.

Cute, cute idea!!!

Your raised serving dishes are all so pretty! Love the colours you used. I would feel safe serving food off the glass tops since there wouldn't be any paint on the surface.
These would be wonderful for using for a shower or party since you wouldn't feel too bad if one or two didn't make it back home and so much prettier than paper or plastic.
Thanks for sharing. Off to look through my collection of old dishes to see what might work. :)
