One no-fail stylist secret is gathering things in mass on trays. It works in the living room on your coffee table, for home accessories, and even on the dining room table. It’s a universal stylist trick. When I’m hunting flea markets and vintage shops, I’m always on the lookout for trays to add to my I prop stash. They’re just so versatile.
Trays make plating food simple and fabulous, and styling with them is a tool of the trade you’ll want to have in your repertoire. Next time you have a party to plan, look around the house for trays to repurpose. Think outside the box, and you will wow your guests.
Here are a few of my favorite ways to use trays:
For an unexpected centerpiece: Gathering guests around the table will never be a problem if you place a beautiful tray of bruschetta (or any other nibble!) in the center.
For salad, beverages, and desserts: Try turning the tray upside down to use it as a riser on the table.
For a beverages station: Gathering glasses for guests to help themselves always makes for a beautiful display.
For entrees: Using a gorgeous wooden tray instead of a ceramic platter adds instant style to your table.
