Must Have Monday: Hostess Trays

Welcome to another week. This one is slightly better because it started with the MLK holiday today, wohoo!


I’m pumped to announce a new series here on the blog, Hello Hullabaloo’s Must Have Monday. Each Monday, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite items – so you can be in the know and probably end up buying some more shit that you don’t need. Let’s be real though, if you are anything like me, you love buying more stuff that you don’t need. Because it’s totally different from all the other stuff that you own and also didn’t need, duh. If you check the tracking on the shipped package, like daily, then say hello because we are the same person and definitely need to be friends.

To start things off, this week I’m rounding up my favorite hostess trays. These serve SO many purposes from decor to serving and everything in-between. Take some yummy cocktails out to the porch to sip in the sun, serve cookies to kids mid-playdate, nosh on breakfast in bed, and the list goes on.

The Splurge:


Mackenzie Childs Party Tray in Courtly Check

The fun check pattern really adds a unique touch to any party, or even just a lazy Sunday morning in bed. It’s one of my absolute favorites. It also makes a great gift!

The Deal:


The Container Store Water Hyacinth Tray

On Sale Right Now for $19.99! I have an older version of this tray that is no longer sold, but this one looks just as versatile. I love that this tray is neutral enough to be worked into your decor when not needed (toss it on an ottoman with some intriguing books or add it to your coffee table style). This is great if you don’t have a ton of space, so you can incorporate it into your everyday decor, and then pull it out when you need it for your next bit of hullabaloo.

Cheers to getting through another week, party starters!
