French Tray...


I've mentioned that my son is getting married in a couple of months. My husband and I are hosting a brunch after the wedding. It's going to have a French country theme with broiche tea sandwiches, quiche, yummy salads, tartelettes, macarons, chocolate croissants and other pastries, etc. Yum. Because we live in Colorado and the wedding is in California, I'm shipping some items that are lightweight and can be transported easily to use as platters for the event. That's where these $7.99 wooden trays from Hobby Lobby come in. {I bought them on sale at 50% off at Hobby Lobby for $4.} These are lightweight trays, but they are definitely sturdy enough for pastries, cookies, or tea sandwiches...


My inspiration {even though I think it's a bit "much"} for this project is this $59 wooden tray from Bellacor...


Yes, that's right... $59. Mine should cost around $5. I love me a good deal.


I'll post the finished projects in a few days!

My son was married out of state and we were in charge of the reception decorations. We packed each table in a bag and recruited one person per table to set them up. We were ready to go in 20 minutes. I was very stressed but it worked out wonderfully. Best of luck with yours and congratulations!

great idea for doing those projects and shipping them Suzanne!

I recently used that Krylon spray paint on that EXACT same tray! Instead of stenciling, I took the easy way out and used some Washi tape.

I bet yours is going to look BETTER than your inspiration piece.
