Trays are a decorators best friend.  They are both functional and pretty.  I’m a big fan of trays and use them extensively in my home.  They are great for serving and entertaining, for keeping items neat and organised on a coffee table, or in the bathroom for storing perfumes and toiletries.   I especially like using trays to hold decorative objects on a dining table, so you can quickly clear the space when you need to without individually moving everything.

Things to Consider when Buying a Tray

  • When buying a tray, make sure that it is stable.  You don’t want to put drinks down on a wobbly tray.
  • Consider whether it is necessary to have handles for easy carrying.
  • Lastly consider the material of the tray for waterproofing, durability and what sort of care and cleaning is required.
