HAL Tiles

Has anyone done anything with the tiles that Holland America gives to Mariners?  I am thinking that I will use them to tile a tray.  I know that HAL has recently redesigned the one for the Rotterdam and the Amsterdam.

Tiles ?

A tiled tray sounds like it would be very heavy, unless they are actually plastic.....Surprised

No they are not plastic. I do have other trays that are tiled, which gave me the idea.


Here is what they look like. They are ceramic and are backed with cork.

The tiles are a unique loyalty gift and sure wouldn't take up much room in a suitcase to take home. I'd probably use them as coasters.

Never got one. Nice though.

I actually use one as a spoon rest for the coffee maker. My husband was always stirring his coffee and the leaving the spoon on the counter. Problem solved. And it looks pretty too.

glomarrone - they are beautiful! I can see your idea of lining a tray, and it would look stunning. BUT, very concerned about how I would mount them to a wicker-type basket yet maintain the integrity of the cork bottoms. The tiles are tough, but the cork - another issue.

Even a silver-type platter, to maintain the cork backing -- out of my league. (Maybe ask a memento store -- 'Once Upon A Time' is/was a national wide chain, I believe). Good luck!

They look wonderful. Hope you come up with a solution and let us know what you decided.

If you have enough, I bet it would make for a wonderful backsplash for your kitchen.

Barring that, putting them on a largish tray would also look nice.

(Or perhaps putting a tiled topper on your chest freezer?)
