Simple Fall Trayscape

Another look at my tray...


Last weekend I picked up a new tray at TJ Maxx...and I wrote a post about how versatile I thought it would be for seasonal and holiday decorating. See..."Another Tray" post here.


This is the the tray as I found it. 


This is the tray after I placed an arrangement on it...I had to tinker after I brought the tray home. :-)

And here is what I did to it yesterday!


I have been wanting to make a "nod to fall" arrangement and this is what I did...and on the new tray. 


I gathered some older accessories along with some pine cones and created a fallish trayscape. 


The small brass container is a golden oldie from the past that once had a very pretty flower arrangement in it. 

The goldish candlesticks are from my stash of old stuff too. I pulled them out and created an quick fall trayscape. 

Use and reuse are my motto! Use what you have...in a new way. Mix and match. You get the idea! :-)


I thought the tray needed some color, so out comes a greenery ball (love those things!) and a tiny faux pumpkin. 

This tray is huge and can handle several things.

This is just the beginning of my playing with my new toy. ha! I may challenge myself to see just how many ways I can decorate it. 

I hope I don't wear you out with my new tray...but right now I am so excited with the many possibilities. 



Stay tuned for As The Tray Turns!
