I first hatched the idea for these lucite trays nearly one year ago. I had carried monogrammed trays in my boutique for a couple years and wanted to take the look to the next level — from an item you’d serve drinks on during book club to a piece you’d proudly display on your console or coffee table even when it wasn’t in use. I teamed up with Connecticut artist Susie Horner and it’s been incredible to see the idea go from a pen and paper sketch at a Starbucks back home to exquisitely detailed canvases shipped to my office in Dallas and finally to the crisp printed and personalized tray inserts you’ll see below. I am so in love with the way they turned out and can’t wait to give them as housewarming and wedding presents in the months to come.

A few styling and gift giving ideas…

The girly girl tray (monogrammed) for catching your keys, organizing your jewelry and makeup, or gifting for a girlfriend’s housewarming

The happy hour tray (monogrammed) for brightening your bar cart, displaying on your coffee table, bringing to a couple’s stock the bar shower, or a festive 21st birthday present

The topiary tray (personalized to your liking) is a timeless gift for commemorating a wedding date, a new address or zip code, your family’s last name and favorite place, etc.!
