New Tricks for Serving Trays

When it comes to versatility and adding value to your home, you can’t go wrong with investing in a nice wooden tray.  Trays are a hard working home accessory – a great option for organizing kitchen counters, consoles and dressers; and a must-have for the buffet table and home entertaining.

Let’s not overlook their great decorative value as well.  Trays can add texture and impact to ottomans, cocktail tables and beneath centerpieces – a really detailed tray needs no adornment and can be centerpiece unto itself.

I love this reclaimed slat wood tray for its great texture and large scale – it’s a multi-function piece that I use all over the house throughout the year.  As a centerpiece this tray’s substantial size fills a long dining table with ease.

Don’t limit your tray to horizontal use – I’m quite fond of it hang this one on my front door or a blank wall, changing the greenery with the seasons.

It also works great to brighten a blank corner near the staircase.

New or old, you can’t go wrong with a great tray for a little decorating inspiration!
