Tiered trays are all the rage these days! I love using them as serving trays when hosting events. They’re especially great when you don’t have a ton of counter space to work with and you have a lot of food to serve.
But what about every other day of the week? I hate to pack my beautiful trays away only to bring them out for special events. Here are a few different ways to put your tiered trays to use in the day-to-day.
- Mail Station – Place a tiered tray on a piece of furniture near the door you use most often. We have a small built-in desk in our kitchen that’s the perfect place for ours. Add a mail sorter – complete with envelopes and stamps, a perpetual calendar and a couple pens – and you’ve got yourself a handy mail station!
- Fruit Tray – Add a tiered tray to your kitchen island or table and place your weekly fruits and vegetables on it. All the beautiful color is a nice addition to any kitchen and you can’t beat the reminder to eat your fruits/veggies you’ll get every time you see it!
- Coffee Bar – Place a tiered tray next to your coffee pot. It’ s the perfect place to house your coffee beans, mugs, sugar and syrup. It’s both functional and beautiful!
There are many daily uses for tiered trays and I’m always looking for new ways to use them. The possibilities are endless!
