Trays are so useful for grouping items together to create a fabulous display. Several objects that can look messy when on show can look put together and well styled when placed on a tray. In addition, they can also protect expensive or easily damaged furniture from becoming scratched.

Kimberley from Swoonworthy uses a gold tray on her coffee table to display some smaller items and a vase of flowers.

Random items may look a little messy on their own, but Kimberley shows that gathering them onto a tray can make for a well styled look.

The plain white design of the tray combined with the white flowers means the blue and golds of the box and vases really pop.
