Ever So Clever, Ever So Pretty Friday, #11…A vignette in a tray

Happy Friday everyone!

Today, I bring to you basket/tray vignette decor inspiration.

From the one of the Queens of Vignettes, Kim of Savvy Southern Style.

I have forever admired the way she can style a tray.

Here is my tray today…


Kim and I bought the same basket/tray at the Williams Sonoma Outlet in Georgia..a deal at $22.00.


On this post she showed it with magazines and books on her table in the sunroom.


In need some small hurricanes….remembered that I had these in a closet..

…..so I whipped out my ASCP Duck Egg and painted them.


I gathered some items, such as my Ralph Lauren blue and white plates…the painted hurricanes..

…..my swan that was a gift from a friend many years ago…


This is one of my favorite tray vignettes (and Kim’s) that Kim has posted here.


Kim uses real and faux flowers in many of her tray vignettes…


Such as this one in her gorgeous dining room.


I inverted one of the hurricanes and placed an apple under the glass…

…..topped it with a candle and moss…the other with rock and a candle.


The apples were added for that punch of color and texture…

…..the vintage tea towel is from a friend’s collection that I purchased from her.


Kim has also used fruit in her vignettes….wish I had that pretty cow!!!


I added a couple of my favorite pieces of silver..

…..the silver fork turned into a vase was a momento from the Hartstone Inn in Camden, Maine

It was a fantastic trip for our anniversary a couple years ago.

The silver pitcher I purchased from Barbara at The Treasured Home…she lives in California.

She brought it to me at the Southern Bloggers Conference…she forgot her iPhone, but not my pitcher!



This is the first time I had used Duck Egg Blue…I love it and need to buy a can of it!


My hubby said that he was glad I was painting something other than white! (He loves color)



So glad you stopped by today…..

…..I am off to Virginia!…


For the Lucketts Spring Market…and to meet up with fellow Hometalk Bloggers on Sunday at Lucketts! 🙂

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!
