This month of celebrating was a blast. Which, for my waistline wasn’t so great, but for enjoying myself, was sublime. Carl and I recently moved into a new apartment, which we’ve been renovating for about a year. (I can’t wait to show you more in future posts…) That being said, our kitchen is a bit away from our living room, so I realized in about two seconds how important trays are when carting hor d’oeuvres back and forth…in high heels nonetheless. I’ve always loved them placed upon an ottoman with a sprinkling of beautiful objèts or books, but honestly, true practicality was never my focus. That is, until now.
So, I divided trays into two categories for future development: 1, usability, portability and design and 2, purely decorative (ie: heavy or low sides). For sure there’s a need for both, but for serving you need them to have both form and function. Here are a few of my favorites I plan on having at home.
Now, time to hit the gym!
