I’m a little bit nuts over coasters and trays. Stewart always teases me; “Babe, do you really need another tray. You have coasters and trays everywhere. You put coasters ON trays when the coasters are supposed to technically stop the condensation.”
Well, this is true. I do put coasters on trays. I also double up coasters and I triple up trays. It’s a layered and more textured approach. It makes things look a bit more loved and more fun.
And by the way, these are not any old coasters or trays for that matter. They are hot vintage coasters, family heirlooms, memorabilia from travel, or just unique fun pieces that add a bit of flare. They look great and they make me smile.
I am sharing an inexpensive vintage tray that I picked up one day antiqing and coasters from a trip to paris. Individually they are ok. But paired together, I think they really play off one another and make my table pop. The coasters almost look like they are jumping out of the tray creating a lot of depth and making it more interesting. I put a pink peony in a white polished cup to offset things a bit. It brings attention to the tray in my opinion. Don’t you just want to put your coffee cup there?
