These are the trays I got at Hobby Lobby for $2 or $3. I used your suggestions and painted one white and one red. Ok, actually I ran out of red paint and I think the white looks good.
I sanded the edges a little just because I like them looking a little used.
This little bird came from Kathy at http://kathyscottage.blogspot.com/ I love how it looks on the reindeer moss in my big apothocary jar.
These are the little snacks and flowers I put in the guest room.
Thanks for reading,
