Tiered Tea Trays: Servers for Teatime Treats

Tea Trays: Servers for TeaTime Treats
Whether tiers hold traditional tea fare or seasonal berries and fruits, the tea tray can be an imaginative centerpiece or a decorative server.

Certainly the tea tray’s versatility doesn’t end with course order and the foods it holds. Tea trays can be a pedestal arrangement of dinner plate, salad plate, and bread-and-butter plate or like-sized plates easily slid into position in a wrought-iron serving rack. Whether pyramid shaped or stacked diagonally, made of fine china, ceramic, or silver, the tea tray is able to give food height, making it a practical assistant at teatime, at a dinner party, or on a crowded buffet table. Form certainly meets function here but with a graceful nod to 19th-century tradition.
