I have a small addiction to trays. Some people collect fine art, coins or vintage wine. I somehow started collecting trays along the way. I think it comes from my OCD ways and having to make sure everything is organized and has it’s place. There’s something about placing piles of things on a tray that just makes it look so finished. In my humble abode, you will find trays on my coffee table, bookshelf, kitchen, dresser, on my guest bed, my bathroom—basically every room in my house. Now that I see this in print I realize I have a problem. I just can’t help myself!
Trays come in every shape and form and are a perfect accessory for your event. Our favorite caterer, Kurant Events, uses the most unique trays to pass hors d’oeuvres. They’re like works of art! We love to work in a tray for our escort card displays. Mirror trays filled with wheat grass or a simple white tray filled with color coordinated jelly beans-love them both! We used a family heirloom glass tray under one of our wedding cakes. A subtle but meaningful touch to this cake table. There are so many ways you can work a tray into your events.
I recently discovered Katie Maennle’s preppy customized trays and I just have to share them with you all. They really caught my eye and now I MUST HAVE ONE.
Now I hope you think of me the next time you pull out your silver tray.
