Tag Archives: trays


So I picked up a couple of my findings from a market for a couple of years ago. I have always been fond of trays – we have a whole bunch of what we believe is an adequate size for a coffee / tea cup and a sandwich, instead of plates. But in this case it is about smaller trays that are for smaller attractive object – whether they are edible or not.

I can never get enough of serving trays. Large or small, does not matter. However, I have drastically reduced the number of trays & if I’m to buy one nowadays, it requires a some thought before. Some things are like that. It’s difficult to explain what it is with trays that are so special. They are practical of course. Easy to use, easy to carry to & from, plus that the small ones, are great to use as sandwich trays with a cup of tea on the side.

I have put away most of the big ones now. We use the small ones on daily basis. I like to put together small tea lights, candle holders & other nice stuff on a tray, to keep things together – as to not flow out & look messy. However, I can tell you that we are definitely not fond of breakfast trays in bed. No one can convince us that it’s nice or romantic. It’s just messy & has a tendency to leave behind a bunch of annoying crumbs.

Make way for the tray / 185

Hej there,

You know, it might sound a bit silly perhaps, but serving trays belongs to one of my (many) passions. Just like candle holders, glass, wall & mantel clocks & other accents to the home. And I have not even yet mentioned textiles of all kinds. I guess that we all have our favorites, things that we’re collecting & things that we always return to, over time, out of pure habit or great love. From time to time, I don’t seem to be able to make up my mind. I do occasionally fall for decorative, cute & overworked things. But on the other hand, I occasionally prefer it more rustic … to then again be attracted to the modern & simple style with basic colors & straight lines. I have a taste / style preference that does not change – that is the real me. But it seems like I’m attracted to the opposite or other sweet things that’s not really me. It might be the need to try a bit of everything, in order to know what you truly enjoy … so as not to get tired of what you like best, if that make sence? Or perhaps it’s the need to just get some variety.

Well, even if I change my mind now & then regarding style, my interest for the trays of all sorts, will remain. I believe 🙂
