Lovely DIY details can help turn a wedding from ho-hum to unforgettable. One of the best ways to do this is by repeating a particular theme, color combination or monogram throughout the day in small ways. This helps create a cohesive look for your wedding day that turns it from ‘just another wedding’ into an event to remember.
On that note, I came across these fabulous lucite monogrammed trays from Dabney Lee At Home and wanted to share them with you. I think these would be a spectacular way to personalize your wedding decor, and the best part is they are pretty and versatile enough to use in married life entertaining as well. Here are some ideas for utilizing these trays:
- Signature Drinks – set out your signature cocktails lined up in rows on a few of these monogrammed trays. Create a layout with a champagne or wine bucket in the middle of a long table, and two of these trays with cocktails on either side of the bucket. Add a few ‘objets’ that highlight your wedding theme, or architectural single-stem vases with a bold flower and you have yourself a functional self-serve bar that follows your theme and looks impressive.
- Appetizer Trays – Purchase four or five of these trays and coordinate with your catering staff to have them serve appetizers off the trays during your cocktail reception.
- Dessert Table – Use the trays as part of a dessert table display – either stack napkins or baggies in the tray with a sign inviting guests to help themselves, or neatly line up small bite-sized desserts such as petit-fours, shot glasses of milk with a mini cookie on top, or mini cupcakes. Mmmm… there is nothing yummier than style paired with good food!
