I keep a few craft paper pads around for just in cases, I mean...doesn't everyone?
Well, that's all you need to give your tray a little face lift so you can use it for different occasions. Cut your paper pad to fit your tray and you're set. Easy peasy.
And when you make a mess or spill something on it, or are ready for a change, just toss the old one and put a new one in.

If you really want to do a more extensive face lift. Just sand down the bottom of the tray a bit (the part with words on it) and give it a coat of craft paint or spray paint. It is still a great deal at $5!
