Trays are one of my favourite decorating pieces.  They will instantly create an organised display for grouping various pretty items together.  Use decorative trays in your livingroom, bathroom, bedroom and kitchen.  A tray can bring both a functional and a decorative element to a space.

Use trays to organise items in your living room such as keeping all your remotes in the one spot or on a console table in your entrance to hold your keys and mail.

I love this glamorous mirrored glass tray with bevelled edges from West Elm.  Add a tray to your bathroom or on your dresser to hold perfume bottles,  jewellery or a stack of books on a coffee table or ottoman.

Use your tray to display your beautiful collections of ginger jars and candles.  A tray can turn your collection of items into a neat display.

Trays are an easy and simple item to style and display.  Design a simple vignette on a side table or dresser, adding candles flowers or a beautiful trinket box. This large square tray above is in a translucent acrylic finish from Country Road with handles and is also great for organising everyday items from your kitchen or office.

Your tray can also help to serve your guests in style when entertaining in your home.  I hope this gives you some ideas to have fun creating your own displays.
