If you like it then you’ll want to put a tray under it!


Here is a great and easy tip for expert decorating and style in the home.  Gather all of your little tidbits, knick knacks,  decorations, collectibles and brick a brack and cozy it all up together on a tray.  Together,  on a tray all decor items look cohesive, pulled together and special.  It looks like they were meant to be together and the entire vignette takes on a larger more important focal point than just the items by themselves.  All of the images are from Pinterest.silverplatetray

Here a group of books ties together, candlesticks and a little pot and bird look like they are the most artistic vignette but if they were just sitting on a table separately the impact would not be as appealing.

Piled up books on a tray?  Who would have thought this could be so good looking?


Now you know that three silver pomegranates just sitting on a table would not be as cute as the same things gathered on a tray.

    I also love tray collections. Right now on my den coffee table I have in a straw one a blue and white ginger jar, two pillar candlesticks, a square Mercury glass container with silk rosemary and a little porcelain red bird. Love your ideas.
