Silver Serving Tray

My husband and I frequented our favorite thrift store on Saturday morning, as we often do. We often enjoy browsing, yet buy nothing. However we've also found some great items. This weekend I found a fabulous item.
This silver serving tray has little pedastal feet, scalloped edging, and a lovely engraved design. And to make it even better, it was engraved on the back 7-31-72. I love old things so to learn that this beautiful thing is 35 years old was rather exciting. Bargain priced at only $4.99 I scooped it right up.
It will be nice for serving finger sandwiches or cupcakes as well as crackers, grapes, and cheese. I also thought about putting a topiary in the middle surrounded by red glass Christmas ornaments for a festive and fancy Christmas centerpiece. The same can be done with a topiary and fancy Easter eggs (no plastic--this is afterall silver!!!).
