Serving dishes have always been a key element to me when hosting a dinner party. The last thing you want to do when hosting a party is prepare recipe after recipe only to put and serve the food in serving dishes that aren’t beautiful. Plating food on a nice looking serving dish will only enhance the overall look of the food.
There are so many different sizes, colors, shapes, etc. of dishes that are bound to match the look and feel of your meal, party, and/or gathering. If you open up the cabinet where I store my serving dishes, you’ll see that I’m a huge fan of the color white.
I usually stick with the color white since the color matches my decor. But, white also have a way of making food pop. Instead of getting lost in a design on the serving dish, a white serving dish allows the food to stand out and get noticed.
I also like to have a wide variety of shapes and sizes of serving dishes. Some recipes require small bowl-shaped dishes while other recipes call for large rectangular dishes. By having dishes in a variety of shapes and sizes, you’ll feel confident serving up your family-style plating during a party.
25 Beautiful Serving Dishes
From white to wood, rustic to sophisticated, simple to colorful, here are some of the serving dishes that I’m loving right now.
Aren’t those dishes beautiful? I hope to add more wood dishes to my collection since I think the wood element brings in a certain rustic element to a setting. Since I have a lot of reclaimed wood throughout my house, I think having the wood dishes will help tie everything together. I’m so matchy matchy!
What’s your favorite serving dish?
