Trays for Days..........




A friend of mine asked "What are you supposed to do with trays?" The question was innocent enough, I mean she wasn't the first person to ask me this, so I responded(with a smile, as I rub my hands together in delight) "What am I NOT going to do with these trays !" Truthfully up until just a few months ago I may have asked the same question, then I attended the local Christmas home tour in my town (quite the affair I might add). And then my love affair with all things to do with trays and what to put on them, began. I actually have laid awake at night thinking of unique things to do with these lovely things(I'm odd I know). They just seem to say "Look at me!" Anything you put in a tray (and I've tried it all) just looks better. So I have decided to post my ideas in the hopes of sparking your interest in trays as well. They just look so how do I say it............lovely, interesting, eclectic, professional, polished and just plain unique. How better to present a vinette? I hope you enjoy. Paula

Your table looks very charming! I look forward to seeing your next eye-catching design with your trays! We are getting more snow today, so much that our church service was canceled! So with your inspiration I’m going to decorate my Easter wreath today since we are snowed in yet again! Wish me luck! Amy

I think it looks wonderful!! I am a big fan of Trays - I have them everywhere. They are perfect for adding little trinkets to, and I also like those primitive rag balls, mixed with rosehips and candles on silver trays....Now you have me thinking I need to make a new centerpiece!
How are you doing sweets? Good I hope! Have a great week - xo Sherri
