Made in Texas Wood and Metal Lantern Trays

Today, we are sharing a few different ways to style our Made in Texas wood and metal trays. These trays are handmade by local craftsmen and made to last for years to come.

These gorgeous lantern style trays are available in three wood finishes. For example, choose a natural wood stain, white or a light grey color. Similarly, you can get a set of two or buy individually in three different sizes.

Tray Styling Ideas

When styling trays, typically include seasonal greenery, a candle or set of candlesticks, and books or a riser. In addition, always include something unique like a seasonal, vintage or architectural piece to personalize the space. This is a formula that I use when styling coffee tables, too. However, these trays can serve as functional yet pretty storage, as well. Therefore, use them everywhere from the kitchen and bathroom to the dining and living room.

Many of the products that we use to style these trays are in the shop, From: Susie. For example, wood risers, wood bowls, art blocks, candlesticks, candles and seasonal stems, wreaths and orbs are in the shop now!
