Beautiful serving pieces elevate humble (but family-favorite) foods like Deviled eggs to superstar status.
Easter and Passover are upon us. Family and friends will soon be crossing through your threshold for meals, laughs, and time together. If you're looking to give your serving pieces of a fresh update, or if you just want to upgrade that chipped piece you've been meaning to replace for five years, now is the time to perk up your platters so your table will be fresh and beautiful just in time for your feasts.
Here, five platter picks for your Easter or Passover feast.
Le Creuset Deviled Egg Tray
(Above) Most deviled egg platters only have enough spots for 12 to 18 eggs. If you hard boil and stuff a whole dozen, several eggs will be left off. With room for a full two dozen egg halves, Le Creuset's stoneware platter presents the must-have side in an elegant, tidy tray. $50, amazon.com
The elegant ink blue is reminiscent of classic china patterns, but the graphic print rings more modern than traditional. A hint of genuine gold warms up the blue hue and helps it tie beautifully to gold-flecked linens or flatware. $78 from anthropologie.com
Marble and Wood Cheese Paddle
Quiet hungry guests with cheese, crackers, pickled veggies, and jams while you put the finishing touches on your feast. Half classic marble and half acacia wood, the finishes clean easily so you don't have extra dishes to worry about scrubbing after the plates are cleared. $50, surlatable.com
Spring Bouquet Oval Platter
If the blooms and buzzing bees of spring days excite you, channel the beautiful outdoors on your table with this floral platter. This stoneware platter is more than 12 inches long, which makes it large enough to hold any number of sides, or even lots of sliced ham. It's also dishwasher- and microwave-safe. $40, wayfair.com
Potter's Workshop Serveware
Hand-painted details are lovely and unique on these South African artisan-inspired dishes. Pick from the large platter, round serve bowl, or oval serve bowl to complete your dinner table collection. $39 - $49, westelm.com
Oak Cake Stand
Lastly, you need a grand pedestal for your Easter cake. Revol's 13-inch oak cake stand is light and bright thanks to the warm oak wood and splash of brought yellow. (A shorter cake stand is available in orange.) $90, revol1768.com
