This tray right here…. is a must! I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve used it to style parties and tablescapes. It is hands down, my favorite party must. In fact, I own four. Don’t judge me. These trays by Zak Designs are 12.5 x 12.5 inches, 100% melamine, and dishwasher safe. White has been perfect for multiple uses, but they do come in other colors. They are incredibly inexpensive and crazy durable. I strongly suggest you invest in one, or two…or four. These babies are quite versatile in look as well as usage. Here’s a look at how I’ve used them in the past.
For our Mod Stripe Mini Golf Party, we cut turf to fit inside the tray as a liner. It was perfect! It actually looked as if the trays had already come like that!
My absolute favorite aspect of these trays is that it fits a page of scrapbooking paper perfectly. Scrapbooking paper is standard size of 12 x 12 in. No cutting necessary, just pick out something cute and place inside the tray. So, that’s exactly what we did for our Neon Roller Skate Party! It makes adding a pop of color super easy.
Of course there is always the traditional usage of using it as a serving tray. The handles make it easy to carry around from guest to guest if necessary, or it gives you a great place to hang a food tag. See how we served up some snacks in our Rock Star Party and more!
