Three Tiered Tray

For Marty's Tabletop Tuesday this week, I thought I'd share a new three tiered tray I got recently at a local kitchen store (Chantilly Kitchen & Bath).  It has turned out to be perfect for buffets or times when I want to take up less tabletop/counter space.

When it was my week to make the "coffee snacks" at work recently, I put it to the test and filled up all the trays with goodies for the staff to enjoy on their break.
(The trays are actually acrylic and the metal stand comes apart for easy storage)

On the top tray, I placed veggies and dip.
On the middle tray, I made bruschetta on baguettes.
The bottom tray held Mars Bar Squares.
I also made a pitcher of ice tea and brought special glasses/wicker tray from home for it.
 With the addition of some pink carnations in yellow pots placed on bright pink placemats on a green tablecloth, the scene was set for a very special "coffee break" in the staff room.
 All the staff were most appreciative of the extra efforts I put into our break time although it sure was hard to get back to work afterward!
 (and no, not everyone brings this much when its their turn 
to make coffee! We'd need to schedule a work-out time as well if they did!)
Please join us over at A Stroll Thru Life - Tabletop Tuesdays for more tabletop ideas/creations.

Anything with ranch dressing involved is indeed a good thing.
