From elegant to festive, a gravy boat has not only served gravy with a meal but is also a critical piece to the overall style of the serveware. Entertain family and friends with elegance and panache with matching dinner pieces that can also serve as decor when not in use.
Gravy boats and gravy stands come in many styles and patterns. Elegant designs appropriate for formal occasions often feature simplistic patterns in gold and silver with intricate detail to texture. Festive designs feature fun, vibrant colors and shapes suitable for holidays such as a pumpkin-shaped serveware in bright orange for autumn or pastel flowers for spring.
When planning a meal for family or parties, the planning goes beyond meal preparation into meal presentation. From the plates and silverware for each setting to the serving bowl and salt shakers, coordinating dishware can add flair to the occasion. When it comes to serving the meal, buffet style leaves room at the dinner table for extra items in place settings while serving at the table allows for sharing and opens conversation.
Many collections offer matching serveware pieces including the creamer and the sugar bowl, the platter and vegetable dish, the salt and pepper shaker, a coffee pot and teapot. Serving flatware sets are also available to coordinate with the silverware.
White is the classic emblem for dinnerware with intricate patterns often made on the edges making texture the centerpiece to the design. White showcases a meal well allowing the natural colors of the food to stand out for a yummy presentation. Solid colors and patterns can be mixed and matched using a color scheme to pull the pieces together. Patterns range from floral to holiday in pastels to vibrant colors.
When choosing a gravy boat, one must take note of the psychology of colors which suggests that warm colors invite hunger, increase IQ and is apparently preferred by extroverts. Meanwhile, aside from being known as relaxing and rejuvenating hues, cool colors can make things appear larger.
