Hostess with the Mostest

November 23, 2015

You’ve ordered the turkey (a fresh Hoka), you’ve almost completed your grocery shopping, the pies will be made on Wednesday and you found some great recipes for appetizers on the ‘net, but what about setting your table and your serving trays?

You’ve ordered the turkey (a fresh Hoka), you’ve almost completed your grocery shopping, the pies will be made on Wednesday and you found some great recipes for appetizers on the ‘net, but what about setting your table and your serving trays? Have you taken inventory of them lately…do you even remember where you stored them?

In my early days of entertaining I can remember scrambling through closets at the last minute trying to find enough decent trays for serving, but no more.  I’ve got a nice selection of practical but attractive trays that are my go-tos, but I’m always on the lookout for more. Here are some options if you want to serve in style this holiday season.

But for more elegant entertaining, here are some options in metal or marble.
