One of the most loved ways to style our trays is by adding refillable dispenser bottles. Because our trays were designed with our bottles in mind, the two make an ideal pair. Using a tray on your kitchen counter or bathroom sink to hold dispenser bottles creates a cohesive + functional feel.

While our candles already standalone beautifully, a simple way to enhance their element of decor is to place one on our wood or ceramic trays. This elevates the look of any space. To create the perfect trio, consider styling a tray with a soy candle and a bottle of safety matches.

These dishes also function as a trinket holder. Small items such as jewelry, keys, and other miscellaneous trinkets can be placed on the tray to avoid them from being misplaced. This use of the trays works perfectly when placed on a nightstand or end table.

If you are someone who enjoys keeping a bar of soap on your bathroom vanity, consider using our trays as a beautiful soap dish. Because of their generous size, you can mix + match various items on the dish to complement your countertop decor.
