I'm a huge fan of trays. I think I've got 10+ trays at the moment, although you can never have too many trays in your home, right?  There's no denying that they are practical. Whether it's to serve breakfast in bed or entertaining dinner guests, trays come in super handy. Of course I try to pick the prettiest ones available too to suit every occasion.  

I also love working with small/medium sized businesses, especially if I think my blog readers will love their products. Which is exactly why I'm so excited to introduce you to Vincent Trading. Vincent Trading create handcrafted, reclaimed, sustainably sourced, ethical and eco-friendly products for your home. I love that their aim is to create timeless products; ignoring the fast fashion and saving a few more trees along the way. It's also incredibly adorable that the brand was born in 2016 by husband and wife, Mike and Emma. I've been following their story on Instagram for the last few months and I can honestly say they are very hard working and such lovely people. Their passion for hand crafted wooden furniture is beyond impressive and I really respect that.

I'm so pleased they also wanted me to review one of their products, especially since I've been eyeing up their signature wooden serving tray for a while now. I just love the wooden finish and knew straight away that it would suit our Scandi interior scheme perfectly. Each tray is made from reclaimed pallets. The pallet is taken apart, cleaned, sanded and constructed to this beautiful creation, before finished with a food safe wax oil. Since each tray is hand made, you can also request a custom size and other bespoke options. How cool is that!

What can I say, I love my new tray and it's one of the most versatile trays I own. You could literally style it in hundreds of different ways. I adore the rustic look and the clever metal handles. The quality feels amazing and it's much sturdier than some of the other trays I have. I also love that's it's been hand-made in Devon and the story behind it. All the furniture is made by Mike (who has previously worked as a high end carpenter and joiner). His lovely wife Emma comes up with the designs and ideas. They really do sound like a match made in (wooden furniture) heaven, don't they?

You can view their new collection here. I'd love to know which piece is your favourite?
