Hello! If you are a frequent visitor you know I love quick and easy decor ideas that can be tweaked for the holidays and seasons. Today I want to share a decorative wood tray with greenery on the side.

You guys it looks so much better than I ever expected. I had to share!



  • wood tray
  • or a repurposed brown shipping or retail ox.
  • Why not? I have repurposed retail boxes for years. Just make sure to remove the shipping labels.
  • Greenery or wired stems


I used green floral stems and a wired garland. The wire makes it easy to twist the garland and position the stems around the square edges of the wood tray.

Oh and if you are hauling out the greenery and stems from last year here is a quick tip to freshen them up for the season.

One of my favorite things about greenery is it looks so good against wood grain trays or tables. Wood and greenery also look amazing against dark and stormy navy walls with my favorite paint color.

Adding greenery to a wood tray is it makes the centerpiece appear so much larger without making it fussy. With family and friend get-togethers I love a tray centerpiece because the tray makes t so easy to remove for dinner or a game of Cribbage.
