Some of my fondest memories of the holidays are holiday meals, special foods served once a year on special dishes. I don't yet have an ivy-etched olive dish or a special silver Christmas cookie dish, but I love the idea of using special dishes for special occasions. This year I'm perusing local thrift and vintage shops to get my own collection going. Here are some great vintage serving trays from everyone's favorite virtual vintage shop, Etsy, for your own holiday soirees. TOP ROW
