Tempting Trays

Containment .... the action of keeping something under control or within limits.
 I'm not talking about terrorists here or even teenagers  ..... just the stuff that accumulates on coffee tables or dressing tables or any other surface in the home. This is where the humble tray comes in handy. 

The selection of decorative and practical  items that adorn our coffee tables look so much more attractive and less haphazard when placed on a pretty tray.

 A drinks tray can be both stylish and functional. It could be an antique silver tray holding your vintage decanters or a more contemporary tray holding bottles, glasses, ice bucket and lemons for when you are entertaining.

Great styling by Mary Ann from Classic Casual Home

Another area where trays can be very useful is on a dressing table or bathroom vanity. Perfect for keeping those everyday make up items, perfumes, jewelry and toiletries corralled in an attractive way.

 And finally, a beautiful tray on a kitchen counter or island can turn your utensil storage into a gorgeous still life.

 From Nell Hill - what a lovely and pratical idea
