A Beautiful Tray and a Giveaway!

But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. – Joshua 24:15b
My house is a gift from God…as is everything good and useful in my life.  One of the ways I give Him thanks is to try to make it a warm, welcoming and comfortable venue, not just for visitors, but for my family as well.  This doesn’t require a lot of money, or a degree in interior design.  What I think makes a home inviting is to see that it reflects the personality of it’s inhabitants and holds items of significance to them.  If you can see and feel that its a place they love and long to be it can’t help but rub off on on friends and family.

I recently received this gorgeous Ornate Metal Collection - Cross Serving Tray from DaySpring.

I love items that are both decorative and useful…and trays definitely fit the bill!  This piece is made of substantial metal and has a warm bronze-brown hand finish.  The decorative cross is a beautiful reminder of the importance of my family’s faith.  It looks great in a plate stand or carefully leaning on a shelf ready for you to grab at a moments notice to proudly serve beverages, desserts or appetizers {not food-safe, use a doily, napkin or dish underneath}.

Here it is on an ottoman providing a place for the remotes and hubby’s reading glasses. There’s plenty of space left to set a drink or two {I would probably use a coaster, just to protect the finish}.

What a beautiful place this would be to collect your keys and daily mail in the entry, or to corral small items on a dresser or vanity.  This would make an incredible {and affordable} wedding gift…or for any occasion at all!
