HOLIDAY COCKTAILS: EASY DIY SERVING TRAY

Having the right accessories for the holiday makes a big difference while entertaining. A stylish party is what I want my guests to experience. So whether it’s one, two or five guests, a fashionable serving tray is a must-have. This year I’ve been in the Champagne-mood, so I will be serving some nice bubbling to my guest for the holiday season.

I have a few trays around, but this idea of making my own tray sounded fun. It was the perfect project that I can make easily without going nuts. I headed to Lowes.

It literally took me 10 minutes to create this tray!

What you need:

-a drill

-a piece of wood (36″ x 12″)

-pulls with screws (5 inches)

-felt tips

What You Do:

Grab a piece of wood that was 36 inches long and 12 inches wide. I had them cut in half for me. Then I headed to the hardware aisle and found two long pulls.

Measure the width of the pull holes and pencil that measurement on the wood. Drill two holes on each end of the board to fit the pull screws. Stain the wood.

Attach the pulls with a screwdriver. Add little round felts tips on each of the screws for furniture protection.

 Viola! It’s that simple! What’s great about this tray is that  it can be used for serving and cutting cheese as well
