Hey party people!

For the past year, I have been digging marble. Not only in home decor but also in party planning.

This past Spring, I even set up my own marble slab ice cream station for a baby shower. It only cost me a few dollars for marble tiles from my local hardware store to create a unique party element.

After the party was complete, I began eyeing some of the marble serving trays. The problem? Most of them were between $45-$60.

Instead of shelling out all those pennies, I decided to try & create my own.

It turned out great, easy to do, and inexpensive.

Here’s what you’ll need: 

Marble Tile

Self Adhesive Felt Pads

Handles of your Choice (found in your local hardware store)

E6000 (found at your local craft store)

Step 1: Attach the felt pads to each corner.

Step 2: Measure equal distance from the edges to determine where to attach the handles.

Step 3: Use your E6000 to attach the handle to your marble. Press down & hold in place for a minute & then allow to dry overnight.

Once you’ve let the handles set, your tray will be ready to serve your guests.

The total cost of my marble serving tray was about $15 (the hardware was the largest expense). Definitely beats the $45-$60 price tag.

Not only could you use this for displaying a cheese plate, you could serve drinks on it, use it as a home decor piece, create a centerpiece on it with vases, or even display a beautiful cake.

Until next time…

Party On!
