Now, you’ve probably heard beauty is in the detail, but how much do you actually take it to be true? You may be applying this to the contents of your wardrobe, but it’s important to do so with your home as well. Sure, choosing the right furnishing should be your top priority since it has a great role in the comfort, functionality and aesthetic beauty of the décor, but your choices home-related certainly don’t end here. You might be thinking about decorating pieces immediately, however, considering the importance of food in our lives, anything related to it also has to be on the list of our priorities.
Since there are all kinds of different recipes and dishes to try out, how they are served is also significant, not just the ingredients used so we might as well say decorating has its own part in food as well. This means serveware deserves your attention and if you want to make dinner parties and gatherings that guests would remember, you’d better choose your platters with more care. The world of serving platters is vast, with plenty of options, so you might not be able to make your pick easily. As you’ll further read in the article, you can get a better notion of what to look more into so you buy the platter that’s the perfect addition to your kitchen cupboard and home altogether.
First things first, it’s advisable to have a broad mind and think long-term. Even if you’re not having any plans about throwing a party any time soon, think of the kind of parties and events you’d be up for and the meals you’d prepare. As mentioned before, there is a variety of serving platters to help you show how good of a host you are, so just choose ones that would go well with the style of the occasion. Depending on the materials they are made of, they can be durable and serve you for years to come so we might as well say they’re a worthy purchase. Who knows, maybe platters will make it to be used as wall decorations by future generations if you make them part of your inheritance.
If you want to have a harmonious atmosphere that’s inviting, colours matter. Assuming by now you’ve more or less completed the tableware, it’s good to pick a platter that’s in the same colour or at least one that goes well with the serving bowls and utensils. It’s always the right time for organising a colour theme party. The level of formality of the party is another aspect to have in mind, which leads us to your choice of materials and style.
Plastic can be fun and easy to combine with, however, you surely can’t imagine having a formal dinner with important guests serving food in a plastic platter, right? They can be your option for serving beverages during your yard gathering for instance, whereas metal, stainless steel in particular, can be your safe bet when showing your hosting skills to your business associate partners. Wood is an all-time favourite because of the natural and homey feeling it brings.
Let’s not forget the cosy breakfast in bed that you can indulge in when you finally make the purchase, and if you need to relax every once in a while, you can have the platter on your lap and enjoy the meal while watching your favourite shows. If you’ve already done that, congrats, you reached a new level of being a couch-potato, something we all need to experience from time to time.
