Nothing screams summer more than seeing a tray filled with glasses of ice-cold lemonade heading your way on a hot, sunny day — that is, unless those trays are decked out with summery prints, patterns, fruits, or sea creatures. Dollar Tree is about to make that summertime dream a reality because the discount store just dropped new plastic serving trays in stores and online, and they’re made for toting fresh lemonade from the kitchen to the pool.

“We got in new stemless tumblers and summer trays that have ‘improved durability,’” the creator behind the Dollar Tree Insider Instagram account captioned a recent post first published on April 3.

Someone commented, “So stinking cute,” and they’re absolutely right.

The handled trays come in four prints: one with butterflies and greenery, one with sea turtles and seaweed, one with oranges and pineapples, and one with watermelon slices and strawberries. They each measure 16 inches by 10 inches and are seemingly made from melamine. 

And the best part is that each tray is only $1.25, so you can grab the entire collection for just $5.

If you can’t buy or find the items at your local Dollar Tree, Amazon is selling a two-pack of serving trays for summer in a lemon print. Although they measure just an inch smaller than the Dollar Tree version, the two-pack of trays will still meet all your summertime snack and lemonade needs, and will ship straight to your door for $19.99. 

The trays are made from 100% high-quality melamine, according to the Amazon description, and are BPA-free, and scratch- and shatter-resistant. Although the trays are heat-resistant and cold-insulated, they’re not safe for microwaves and are hand-wash only.

Perfect for bringing food and dishes out to the patio; piling up with hot dogs, burgers, and all the fixings; and, of course, serving lemonade, you’ll find endless ways to use these trays throughout the summer. 

Grab all four while they’re still in stock at Dollar Tree and get prepped for the warm weather ahead.
