21 Best Decorative Trays To Buy For Your Tabletop

From decorative trays for your vanity table to statement trays for coffee table styling

Jessica Harding By Jessica HardingSenior Creative Buyer

Decorative trays... Objects of beauty in their own right but also useful commodities to group like items together into a pleasing decor arrangement. They have a place in bedrooms and in bathrooms alike, they perform an aesthetic function in the kitchen when stood upright to add texture, and then the classic serving tray does what it does best in sitting and dining rooms, i.e. serve drinks and nibbles to whoever’s in waiting. So the question begs, where would we be without them?

Senior Creative Buyer Jessica Harding shares her selection of the best decorative trays to consider for your tabletop.
