Now keep the ring boxes (preferably transparent in colour) over the bases of the inverted glasses. Just imagine how dramatic and fun it would be to present your engagement rings on these trays!

Some things are never out of style. And a classic silver engagement tray is one of them. Decorate the silver tray with white and lilac roses along with little white daisies to match with the colours. Keep the rings in silver or oxidised boxes. When you're not too sure about which kind of tray to choose, this is the one that would always be a sure winner.

8. Hand-painted plates on a box

Do you have a knack to paint? Well, here's your chance to use your artistic forte on the engagement tray. Get hand-painted ceramic plates placed on wooden trays or boxes and keep the rings in the box. Use the plates as the lid and keep it open. You can also ditch the box completely and present the rings on your own created plates. When you have something so artistic and original, you don't need any other accessory with it. Or you could take a look at The Wrapping company for more ideas.

Get as creative as you want to. Use the couple's images or their favourite celebrity/comic character's photos printed on the engagement tray. Use old bangles and dupattas to make your own ring tray. Recycle old trays by hand-painting or accessorise them. Getting interesting concepts on decorating your tray doesn't always have to be an expensive affair. All you need is to put on your thinking hats and try something new and innovative. Doesn't matter if what you make isn't trendy. You can create something fresh and set your own trend!
