Day 10 ~ Serve It Up Pretty!

It’s important to serve delicious food and drinks at your holiday parties but in my opinion it’s just as important to serve your food in a beautiful way. Today I am going to show you some of my favourite service pieces and ideas.



What to Serve your Food On
 
 
Use my favourite colour….White


Here is my serving dish started kit from Crate & Barrel & Zappos:

 Crate & Barrel $19.95 Large Serving Platter
 

Crate & Barrel $15.95 Chip & Dip Bowl

 Crate & Barrel $29.95 Large Pedestal 
 
Zappos.com $52.99  Set of 4 These do double duty as a plate and wine holder!
Crate & Barrel $22.95  Set of 12 Appetizer Plates (These are such a great deal!!!)
 

Food looks amazing on white. It’s classic and simple. 




Silver or Stainless Steel
 


 
Etsy Finds

 

Crate & Barrel $34.95 Stainless Bowl
 


Add glamour or an edge to your table with this glossy touch.




Cheese Trays are a world of their own. 
Here are my 3 suggestions
 
 
Use Wood
 
 
 
Crate & Barrel $21.95 Wedge Server
 
 
 
 
Use a Chalkboard Platter
 
 
 
 
 
 
These are so great because you can identify the cheeses and even leave little notes for your guests. This adds some fun!
 
 
 
 
Use Slate 
 
 
 
ZGallerie $29.95 Large Rectangle Slate Board
Classic and rustic.
