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. Serve drinks from a stylish pitcher and provide elegant
coasters where guests can set down their glass. 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.
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. Find these and other serving pieces for your dinner table when you shop at Sur La Table.
