Welcome! With Easter only a few days away, I’m excited to be joining Katherine from Katherine’s Corner and some of her other blog friends for an Easter on a Tray Blog Tour.
Each of the bloggers on the tour has prepared an Easter vignette on a tray. I know you are going to love all of the fun ways to decorate for Easter, with just a tray and some pretty Easter decor.
If you’ve been following the tour, thanks for coming by from Common Ground! If you have come by directly, welcome to the tour.

This is the first tray tour I’ve done, and I’ve been having so much fun with it. I’ve been trying to push myself to try things that aren’t my usual “forte,” and it’s always so refreshing to give something new a try.
I call my tray an “introvert’s self care Easter tray.” 🙂 Some tea, some candy, and some calming inspiration. (Actually, though, I only had one pretty teacup, so it could just as easily be an Easter visit with a friend, just by adding another one!)
The tray is a thrifted one that I bought with the intent to upcycle it but haven’t gotten around to it yet. (Still trying to find out if I can decoupage over contact paper??) I do think the green adds some spring cheer, though!
I used things I already had, other than the candy. It is a little bit dangerous to have all of this candy around me, though!
The vintage Easter postcard is from my small collection. I have some other Easter ones, but ever since our move a few years ago, a few things still haven’t been found. (Which reminds me of a special gold bracelet my husband had given me years ago. When we moved, I didn’t want to put it in the pods, so I kept it out to “keep it safe,” and I haven’t seen it since. Still hoping it will turn up one day!)
The teacup was my husband’s grandmother’s – not super old, but special still. (Well, it’s from the ’90s, so maybe it is super old, depending on your age and perspective!) The candy dish was a wedding gift from a special aunt. I used it a while back in an Autumn vignette challenge.
I made the simple little Easter card by rubber stamping and then embossing with gold tinsel embossing powder. I don’t really make cards too often anymore, but I still love my rubber stamps, especially the verses and nature ones. I mainly use them in my journals, now.
The teapot belonged to a neighbor from our previous neighborhood. When her husband passed, and she went into a nursing home, the family gifted me with the teapot.
Thanks so much for coming by! The next blog on the tour is My Hubbard Home. Be sure to stop there next, and don’t miss any of the other blogs on the tour. They’re linked below.
If you’d like to imitate the look of my tray, here are some ideas. These aren’t the exact same items I used, but I like them! (affiliate links)
