Making serving more fun!

Confession: I have a slight obsession with serving trays and platters. 

Every tray I have is just that, a tray, so I really wanted something that was fun, unique and had some height. So I found some plates that I loved and made them into cute tiered serving plates. I am having several get together’s  soon and I am so excited to use them.

This first one is more fun and colorful. I love the flower plate on top. Isn’t it so cute!!

This next one is more classic and a little more formal. I love the square plate in the middle and the bowl on the top plate. I LOVE black and white so of course I fell in love with this pattern. Can you picture strawberries and lots of fruit on this with some yummy dip on top. I sure can. PRETTY!

This last one was a cool candle stick I found and was going to do something else with it. But then I found this big blue glass charger and loved the dark sparkly blue with the black. (The plate is sparkly if you can’t tell.) I am not 100% on this so I haven’t glued it together. What do you think? Keep it or use them for something else.

The treats on this tray are Oreo cookies dipped in brownie batter and baked with white chocolate drizzle. The drizzle didn’t turn out the best because I didn’t melt the chocolate enough and I was impatient with it, oh well.  Everyone at game night tonight loved them!

If you have any suggestions or ideas LEAVE A COMMENT!!! :)

Thank you for your comments! :) In the in between layers I used candlesticks! They work awesome for so many things. I got them at H.L. I waited until they were 50% off.
