5 Ways to Style the Joanna Gaines Magnolia Home Tray

Let’s style the

Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Home Bamboo Tray

For today’s 5 Way Wednesday series, I am sharing ideas that you can use to style the Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Home bamboo tray. However, you can use any large decorative tray. I love to use decorative trays to gather things in my home that are both functional and pretty.  In addition, trays reduce visual clutter by making a group of objects appear as one.  Therefore, they are great for organization or displaying your decor.

I found this Joanna Gaines Magnolia Home tray at her warehouse shop…The Little Shop on Bosque in Waco, Texas.  However you can find it online, too.

1. Shoe Organizer

Where to use a large tray:  Under a bench in the mudroom, entryway or bathroom.

How to use:  Store everyday shoes and boots where you most often enter your home or dress.



2. Coffee Bar

Where to use a large tray: In your coffee bar in the kitchen or breakfast room.

How to use: Place your coffee maker, mugs K-cups or coffee in canisters, and a seasonal item on the bamboo tray.  Items are stored neatly in one place and makes cleaning the counters easier.


3. Table Vignette

Where to use a large tray:  On a coffee table or ottoman in the living room

How to use: Style a coffee table vignette with books, greenery, a candle and something interesting.  For example, pumpkins are the perfect piece to add during Fall. The bamboo tray works great year round, because of the neutral wood tone.


4. Serving Tray

Where to use a large tray:  On the kitchen island or dining table.

How to use: Store just enough dishes, silverware, and glasses for family meals in your tray.  Specifically, this works great, and looks good too, during busy weekdays. First, dinner is in the crockpot and the dishes are ready for a quick meal between after school activities.  Second, I can easily unload the dishes from the dishwasher into one place.  In addition, I always add some greenery to my decorative trays!


5. Organization Caddy

Where to use a large tray:  In a family room (media room, game room, play room)

How to use: Organize books, games, blankets in one place.  The bamboo tray is large enough to hold smaller boxes, but allows you to move items around the room.  This works great in a family room.
