Tray Service!

 I love trays, I use them around my house in various ways.  Some of my favorites I use as art pieces, such as the Southern Living at HOME French Quarter tray.  I love the texture, color and size and often when I hold a decorating show in my home, I have women who wish to purchase it!   Sorry ladies it’s not for sale!  When I want to use the tray for food, I can easily access it!


 What I also love about trays is the way they corral items and give them more present by making them a focal point.  Such as the one I use on my Great Room coffee table.  Two candlesticks, candle snuffer and a vase of fresh flowers!  Look how it keeps the table from looking cluttered! 


I use the Willow House Jamestown Tray on my husband’s vanity to hold his colognes.  Again it keeps the counter tidy and organized!   I don’t know about you, but my guy doesn’t take the time to put toiletries away in the morning as he gets ready for his day!


In the bar, I used the Windsor Tray to hold a container of stir sticks and a pretty bottle of liquor. 


In a small guest bathroom, I used my Willow House Estate  Vanity Tray to hold a liquid soap dispenser and a faux orchid.  The tray actually catches any drips from the dispenser, yes it is doing double duty!


When decorating for a holiday, smaller items tend to look lost as they are scattered about a room, by using a tray to hold small objects such as bunnies at Easter gives them more present, and looks rather charming! 

 Check out these pictures and notice how they look and feel in the room.  They aren’t just for serving up food!  Look about your home, where could you use a tray?    How would it make you feel about your space?







If you care to share your thoughts, I’d love to hear!  If you like my blog, I’d be honored if you share it as well!
