Serve ‘Em in Style DIY Trays for Summer Entertaining

July 18, 2016 • Contributor: Julie May

Summer is the perfect time of year to entertain outdoors day or night. There are endless reasons to host BBQs, poolside brunches, and a little afternoon croquet. But when folks pop over for an impromptu hello, it’s good to be prepared. You can’t go wrong with stylish trays ready to serve lemonade, wine, snacks, and more! So let’s get you ready to host on the fly.

This modern tray boasting a starburst design serves two purposes: a cool snack tray for any party and a permanent decorative piece.

The chevron look is chic every time. This is the perfect tray for serving stylish sangria or mint juleps.

Lemonade, anyone? Make this perfect vinyl decal for a clear or white tray.

Think outside the tray like the folks at Kingston Crafts. They took an old cabinet door, upcycled it, and added vinyl decal lettering. What old surface can you upcycle into a tray?

For you vintage lovers, find an old tray and spice it up with a modern message like “Lucky” or “You’re Hot” for a little fun on those scorchers. 

We have lots of other projects for summer entertaining ideas from napkins to table runners. Make sure to check out our Home Décor section in Cricut Design Space.

  1. Re Cricut Design Space™ software, does this software come with air 2, or purchase?
    I am a graphic artist, really don’t need another graphics program. I want to create on my computer with my programs.
