Use & Care

You’ll be amazed at how many uses trays have in the kitchen, for entertaining, managing snacks on the ottoman, organizing paperwork, and bringing order to your boudoir. If you want, you can have your minions deliver important correspondence to you on a tray.

Do not heat these trays in an oven or microwave.

We recommend washing by hand since the detergents used in home dishwashers are so rough.

Where it's made

Our trays are made at the Åry workshop in Nybro, Sweden. The team takes sheets of FSC®-certified birch veneer, and smooshes them together with melamine goop using high heat and pressure. Åry has been producing high quality products in their own factory since 1952. All the raw material for our trays are sourced within Europe.

Just in time for Christmas Calamities

Bright, festive trays, filled with possible holiday calamities, arrived just in time for Christmas. Perfect size trays for any number of tasks. I have both the rectangular and the round. Perfect hostess gift for the hostess, or host, who appreciates the usefulness of trays during the holidays.

TCBW Christmas tray

Sturdy yet lightweight with the wonderful graphics we love. Sadly, I messed up and didn't get mine ordered in time to serve dino Christmas cookies at our family get together, but next year! Great shipping, arriving in perfect condition. My relatives are going to be so jealous! Another super product!

Love These Trays!

I bought myself the round Christmas tray and the square regular calamities as an early Christmas present! These were great for serving snacks and cookies to the few people my loner self invites over on holidays! I love how light weight they are and it's very entertaining when people notice the "Things Could be Worse" designs!

The perfect Christmas tray

Great size, easy to wash cheese ball remains off, light weight but sturdy so you can load it up but most of all the design rocks!


Purchased these as gifts and for me, they look great and were well used. Lots of compliments!
