Make a decorative statement on any tabletop by adding a tray to display and organize a mix of your favorite things.
Trays are some of those everyday items that you think might not have a purpose outside of serving guests while entertaining. But as you’ll see here, organizing and decorating with trays can solve a multitude of problems. From a large catchall at the front door to a small one placed on your vanity, trays work incredibly well for corralling items that once appeared to be clutter. They also add color and a nice layer of texture and pattern between surfaces and tabletops, lending a decorator’s touch to the space.
Now you can rethink the many ways of decorating with trays. And instead of getting rid of trays, better yet, start a collection of them when scouring through antiques shops and garage sales. You can never have too many, and you’re sure to find a clever spot to put them to work around the house.
