World Market is a go-to for us. Rectangular or oval platters are easy to find, and so versatile. We love using wood boards as serving platters. Wooden trays (with handles) come in handy as well. If you’re concerned about the material, use a napkin or other liner between the food and the serving platter. Check out a few of our favs below.
Pro Tip: Use risers here to elevate some platters for a more visually appealing display.
Ceramic Food Platters
Because why go standard and plain when you can add a pop of color? Plus - not many foods are blue (are any?) so complete your color palette with these.
Rustic Wooden Serving Trays
Featuring handles, so you don't even need to attempt to try out the waiter skills you never quite mastered. Make the most of the compartments for a sorted, neat look.
Because doesn't everything look better in a bowl? (And taste too!) Whether it's salad, pasta, or drinks on ice, we've picked out some of the top bowls to perfect your scene. Scroll on to see our picks.
Add 1-2 melamine bowls for an extra spark of color throughout your display.
Chilled Bowls & Trays
Ice trays are trending right now. Keep your food cool… and look cool doing it.
Your white porcelain bowl for... literally anything. Fits any vibe, and plays well with friends.
Did we mention it's chip resistant?
Bamboo Fiber Salad Bowl
May your serving utensils never go missing again! We love this lid for when you're bringing a dish to a friends' house too!
Toss in ice, drinks, more ice, and more drinks. Time to party.
Mesh Food Covers
Because warding off the pesky guys that want to eat your gorgeous food displays just don’t have a seat at our table.
Wooden Tiered Serving Ladder
If you're gonna serve one layer of heavy apps... why not serve three?
