Attention, Southern hostesses!
There are a few dishes every Southern hostess should have in her cabinet, and one of those is a sturdy (and pretty) serving tray. If you’re lucky, you already have vintage serving trays handed down from Mama’s mama (and her mama), but if you weren’t blessed with beautiful passed-down-pieces, there’s no reason to worry. You can find gorgeous vintage serving trays right on Etsy, and you won’t believe the incredible prices. Whether you need a vintage serving tray for party appetizers, holiday main dishes, or desserts, these are the best vintage finds right now. As your guests pick up homemade treats off your newly polished vintage serving tray, you can smile knowing you didn’t spend a fortune (and you’re not scratching Mama’s silver either). Easter is fast approaching, and these stunning vintage serving trays couldn’t be a better fit for the occasion.
