Serving up in style!
Do I know serving pieces! I sell them and I buy them! Serving dishes can make it or break it when doing entertaining.
Whether you are cooking for your guests or buying prepared items from your favorite store or restaurant, you need all shapes and sizes of serving platters, trays and bowls.
Some people may think that I have too many but I baulk at that thought. My platters and trays consist of clear glass, white, solids in an array of colors, crystal, and metal, fancy, rustic and patterned! I have bowls with stands that raise them up to make them a focal point on the table, then there are the patterned, clear and solids of all kinds.
It is very rewarding to bring a green salad to a party and people oo and ah over it, simply because the bowl is stunning.
Are you guilty of buying a veggie tray at your local grocery store, taking it to a party, removing the seal and flipping it over and using the plastic tray to serve? Yep, we’ve all done that one! Next time try taking a rectangular tray and with the carrots angle them on the tray, following up with the cauliflower, etc and in the corner of the tray place a small ramekin with the dressing. Your presentation changes the way guest view that store bought veggie tray! You’ll be rewarded with your own oo’s and ah’s!
Presentation is everything! Enjoy!
