Whether you’re hosting a dinner party or just having a few people over, a versatile collection of serveware is essential. Stock up on trays and serving bowls for everyday use, and transition from kitchen to table in style, even when it’s dinner for one. Expand your options with a few durable platters, and prepare for cocktail hour with wine and cheese servers. Heading out for some fun in the sun? Pitchers and punch bowls are patio standards. Getting ready for an intimate gathering? Smaller bowls and plates are just the thing for chips and dip.
Trays and bowls are the cornerstones of a great set of serveware. Simple and versatile, these dishes are the first choice when it’s time to bring food from the oven or stovetop to the table. The range of sizes and proportions is nearly endless, making them perfect for everything from salads to bread to casseroles. For a shimmering classic look, opt for polished aluminum trays, serving bowls and gravy boats. Need something new for a modern kitchen? Glazed porcelain offers a crisp surface that looks great on any table. For a sharp twist on traditional design, try a set of wooden bowls and trays.
Setting out a few appetizers? Serveware designed for wine and cheese gatherings is convenient to have on hand. Wooden cutting boards are a handsome alternative to plastic, and provide a fabulous base for displaying cheese. Board sets featuring matching knives are a great way to unify your appetizer trays. Looking for an intriguing way to display wine? A wine-bottle rest is a fun conversation piece. Mix and match everything, or opt for a full set of appetizer plates. Find the designs that best suit your household, and throw parties with style.
Pitchers aren’t just for lemonade. No brunch is complete without a pitcher of orange juice, and simple glass containers are desktop staples—a pitcher of water at your side cuts down on trips to the office cooler. Add a bit of contemporary style to your serveware with an eye-catching copper pitcher, or go with stoneware for a timeless look.
