The small oval tray has a handle at either end. It is white with orange handles. The interior has a row of small black circles connected by a black line travelling diagonally across the tray. It has the same design on either side of the line. The triangular shape has a row of black triangles nested against white triangles, then two striped black and white triangles with a white oval between. The other element of the design is two orange triangles with an orange line that connects to a curving orange triangle with two black semicircles at the end.
