Creating a personalized birthday gift

My BFF celebrated her birthday recently, and I wanted to give her a unique gift.....
so what's a girl to do?

She had recently admired my decorative tray that I use as a centerpiece on my dining table, so I decided to create one just for her!



I use stylized trays a lot when I am staging, it's one of my favorite ways to dress up a table!
 I went to my local consignment store and HomeGoods and gathered up my supplies...


I always start with a little height on the tray...



I found this awesome faux fern at HomeGoods and glammed it up a little....


Then I layered in a couple of other perfect HomeGoods finds...






And then nestled the vintage and antique items that I found at consignment to personalize the vignette...


Wrapped it all up....


And guess what?


Happiness!
