I've been feeling like the vase on the table looked a little lost and lonely on the big empty tabletop.
So when I saw this round tray at Target on sale for $15 I knew exactly what I could do with it.
I love trays. I could probably have one on every single surface of our house. I love how a group of items that look like clutter or random when they're all shoved together on a surface, suddenly look purposeful and neat when they're contained within a tray.
It's been nice having the vase, bowl of fruit, and cup of the twins' utensils on the tray too since this table gets used a lot throughout the day for a lot more than eating- when it's being used for painting, coloring and playing with play dough I clear it off, so with the tray it's quick to move everything all at once instead of three individual things every time.
I also love the little bit of color the items on the tray are giving this spot, and that the round tray mimics the shape of the light shade. I would love it if the tray was the same scale as the light fixture, but the table isn't big enough for that anyway. But I'm really liking how this looks!
