Kitchen Island Tray Decor…

If you don’t know where to begin with holiday decorating, a tray can be a great place to begin.  This year, to kick start some of my holiday decorating, I joined a bunch of bloggers for a “Winter Wonderland” tray tour.  Each of us decorated trays in a winter theme.  First, I chose to decorate my kitchen island tray but then continued on and decorated a tiered tray near my coffee machine.  Don’t you love it when your original ideas “snowball” into more creative ideas?  Read that blog post here – Kitchen Island Tray Decor (a Cozy Winter Theme).

  1. Hello Shelley, I love looking at your blog and getting ideas to decorate my own home. I was reading your most recent post and I really like the paint color you used in your family room/living space. I am really wanting to make a paint color change in my own family room and wondered if you would share what color paint you used on the walls. I have a similar neutral color scheme and your wall color looked like what I might like to try. Thank you so much. Sue
