Bill and Abbie and I have been enjoying watching some old episodes of “Leave It To Beaver”. One of the things I have observed is how they use cups and saucers for their coffee ~ and how June will often bring in a tray with their evening coffee for them to enjoy together. And at the beginning of some episodes, she is shown in the doorway holding a tray with a glass pitcher and glasses bringing refreshment to her family who are working in the yard.
Being inspired ~ My tea trays have come down off the wall on several occasions and been put into use!
This is the thrift shop tray that I fixed up earlier this year ~ this one is fun to use with our china cups and saucers and tea or hot chocolate. Here we are enjoying some hot vanilla milk! ♥
Our son and daughter-in-law gave me this pretty English tea tray for Christmas and it hangs on a wall in our kitchen. I thought it went so well with these vintage style glasses that I purchased a few years ago. It makes a perfect summertime serving tray! Yesterday we enjoyed some fruit smoothies. We found a box of discounted fruit for $2 at the fruit stand and it has been just right to use for this summertime treat!♥
I am so happy to not only be able to enjoy my tea trays as decorations on the wall ~ but to be able to put them to practical use as well!
How fun it is to be able to use some pretty things to serve up a little refreshment to my family!♥
Sweet joys to you!
