Summer entertaining

In the previous post I spoke about the appeal of wood decorative pieces. A few days ago I came across a set of three wood trays. After some research, I discovered these were originally sold as a set of four. However I purchased them for $3.99, and am content with just three.

I think the blond wood is just perfect for a summer accent to any table. These trays are light weight too, adding to the ease of summer entertaining. The round, silver-tone corners are a nice detail.

These trays were made in Japan. The finish is great, and clean-up seems to be easy to do with a damp cloth. Each tray is solid with no weakness in construction. Had they felt loose at all, I would have passed them by. Function is important as I plan to deliver summer drinks and food to the porch table.
