Tips for Using Serving Pieces While Entertaining
If you’re planning on hosting a special dinner or celebration at your home, it’s worth putting in a little extra effort to plan out how you’ll display the meal. Think about how your guests will experience each element of the event. Start out with a beautiful tray filled with appetizers or snacks. For a rustic charcuterie tray, consider displaying your meats and cheeses on a Sur La Table Italian Olivewood Slice Serving Board or a Mango Wood Board. (Hint: Our Sur La Table Olivewood Cheese Knife Set makes cutting your cheese selections a breeze!)
Serve drinks from a stylish pitcher and provide elegant coasters where guests can set down their glasses. Place trivets on the dinner table or buffet so they can act as a guide for where each serving dish will go. Then, dish out entrees and sides from beautiful pieces, such as a wide and shallow pasta serving bowl, a terrine packed with meatloaf or a platter piled with colorful roasted vegetables. Use a cake stand to make your dessert especially memorable. We have multiple cake stands from which to choose, both with or without covers and made from multiple materials, including marble and glass.
Serving Dishes for Condiments and Spreads
When setting out the accents for your meal, you’ll want to make sure they’re displayed just as elegantly as your main dish. Use sauce cups for salad dressings, ketchup, au jus and other condiments. Add a lovely syrup dispenser to your brunch spread, or place an elegant gravy boat on the dinner table. Choose a butter dish that complements your dinnerware for a coordinated look. We also carry specialty serving pieces that are unique and often difficult to find in traditional big-box stores, such as porcelain egg cups, escargot platters, sauce bowls and soup and sandwich serving sets.
Find these and other serving pieces for your dinner table when you shop at Sur La Table. With our comprehensive variety of serveware, serving platters and other food service essentials, you’ll be well-equipped for your next family meal or special event.
