Things I Love Week – Vignettes on Silver Trays

I have always had an attraction for silver. I love it’s luster. I don’t save it for special occasions like when company is coming – I use our silver as much as possible  even though I know it will need to be polished at some point. Not that  I can say that I  really enjoy polishing silver – it is a small price to pay. Nothing is prettier than nice and shiny silver.

Silver trays can be used literally in every room of your home. They are not just for formal occasions or should your silver stay only in the dining or living room. They are wonderful accents for corralling any of your decor into vignettes . Depending on what you put on your silver tray will dictate whether is more formal or just casual.

I use a silver tray in our foyer with pieces of cut glass and wine decanters. Imagine these pieces without the silver tray –  they would only look like a bunch of stuff!

I love this vignette………if you notice a large silver tray leans against the backsplash with picture in front of it. Another tray holds a silver bucket for wine with a figurine in front of it.

Do you like to use silver trays in your decor? SIlver trays are either handed down in families, or  could be something you have decided to collect, or pick up at estate sales, flea markets or find through searches on ebay or craigslist.  If you are not using your silver trays and have them stored away because you don’t want to have to polish them – get them out!!! Use them!! They are little “happy’s” to use in your home. I hope by looking at the photos that show different ways to use silver trays has inspired you.

Thanks for visiting!
