Italian Florentine Trays and Tables

Hello everyone!

I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far.  It is beautiful here in GA. 

I wanted to share my newest love with you.  I have fallen in love with these feminine Italian Florentine trays.


I found these at a local antique store and just snatched them up!  I love how affordable they are too.

Isn't this petite round one pretty?


It has a very subtle pink color on it.  

This rectangular one is pretty too.


It has a cream background.  

I love the painted gold on all of the trays along with the scalloped edges and detailed design in the center.


I plan on grabbing more when I see them.  Also, Etsy and Ebay are full of them!  

In addition, to these trays, I love the nesting tables.  Now, I've actually had these for years.  Every now and then, I bring them back out of storage.  I decided to bring mine back out after finding the trays.  


This makes a great little table for my glasses, coffee , etc. next to the chair. 

Look at the pretty design on top.


These tables are meant to be seen, not covered up with stuff!  

I used another smaller one beside the bench in my foyer.


I noticed that there are many different styles and color combinations of these trays and tables.  Do you have any of these?


If you have a feminine style home (like I do) they fit in perfectly!

Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful trays and tables, Kelly! I don't have any; but they would be awesome in my master bedroom!

Debby said...

The trays and the table are perfect for you. Do you think someone redid the trays or they were always like that. Very pretty.

Your trays and table are beautiful! I have a Florintine trash can (small) I found at a thrift store for about $2.00.

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

I have a tray in brighter colors, but I like the softer hues of your tables and trays, Kelly. It's a good thing you kept those tables in storage!

Your florentine trays are so pretty. Yes, I'm loving using florentine nesting tables around. They're often just the perfect thing for a particular spot.

Those trays look great on the wall and the little tables are a perfect pick-up to them. Looks like you have a new collection started!

Your trays and table are really pretty, Kelly, and the little tables are perfect...just the spot to set a glass of tea..with a coaster. :)

I love how you used the on the wall. I have always wanted a set of nesting tables, but haven't run across any at the right price. Over the years I have had several pieces, including a hand mirror. Right now the only one I still have is in my powder room. It is a red-coral, and sits on a plate stand. I have always liked this stuff, and it has been around a long time. I think I used to have some little boxes, too.

Love the tables Kelly..nice addition..Happy Sunday

Bonnie said...

I have seen these for a long time and I love them. Yours are pretty and fit in your decor nicely. I would like them too.

If I don't visit as much it is because Blog loving quit in my email I guess because I was editing my blog roll and must have hit the wrong button. Everything is gone, gone! If I don't remember the blog address I can't retype them. Ugh. I dread typing all those blogs.

I love these pieces. I've had several that I've used as dresser trays and boxes for jewelry, but I've never seen a pink one! My heart is going pitter, patter. Love these on your wall.

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...
