At Footstools & More we produce a range of handmade serving trays in a choice of woods and finishes and in various sizes, either square or rectangular. If you don’t presently have a serving tray and you buy one, you will very quickly wonder how you ever managed without one.

Serving trays have so many different uses. Obviously, you can use them to serve drinks when you have guests around which, since Freedom Day, you can now do once more. You can also use them for having a coffee or breakfast in bed as you can sit up with the tray on your lap and everything is right in front of you. Of course, you can do the same thing when sitting on the sofa or in an armchair if you are just having dinner on your own, for instance.

You can also pop them onto your footstool and use them to hold your knitting pattern and wools, or you can use them to hold your laptop level while you work. If you buy a large square serving tray, it will be perfect for playing board games on, such as Monopoly, Snakes and Ladders, or chess.

If you have a bookstand, you can plonk it on the tray and read your book easily without having to hold it in your hand, which can get tiring sometimes when you are reading a book that you can’t put down. You can do the same with a tablet if you have Kindle installed and like to read off that instead of buying a physical book. Buying a book on Amazon Kindle is often much cheaper than buying a physical book anyway.

A serving tray is also useful if you like to have flowers around the home, which many people do, as you can pop it on your footstool when you are not using it to rest your feet, and you can place a vase of flowers on it without fear of it falling over and soaking the footstool.

Of course, it goes without saying that when you have guests around for a dinner party, it is the perfect thing for bringing all the plates and dishes into the dining room to serve the dinner courses from, which is why it is called a serving tray in the first place!

You can buy a serving tray from us in light or dark oak, or finished in black, charcoal, or wenge, in whatever size is perfect for you.
