Serving On A Cool Tray

Cool Tray

Serving chilled food on a hot tray isn’t the best way to keep the party going. Unless of course, it’s an eat-as-fast-as-you-can party. But for the rest of us, when it’s time to slow down and chill with some chilled food the Cool Tray can come in handy. The serving platter comes with an inner compartment meant to be filled with water. Pop it in the freezer and keep the snacks and spread cool without diluting the fun.

Bling On The Cakes

Gem Embellished White Cake Plates

Cake out of a box isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it won’t hold up to scrutiny. Unless, of course, you embellish it somehow. Like with shiny things. The Gem Embellished White Cake Plates won’t make the cake taste any better, but if you’re looking for a distraction, dazzle ’em with bling. Cheesecake would go good with these.

Serving Crackers On Their Own Tray

Wilton Armetale Reggae Cracker Tray

Crackers often get overlooked. Special attention is always paid to the cheese or the spread, but when it comes to the delivery vehicle–the cracker–more often than not they get tossed onto a plate as an afterthought. Even saltines deserve better. The Wilton Armetale Reggae Cracker Tray elevates the lowly cracker on up to the level of its serving partner. The 13-inch long platter holds at least a package of crackers and also happens to be safe for oven use–but serving hot crackers probably won’t fool anybody into thinking you made them yourself.

Snacking That Ends In A Draw

Tic-Tac-Toe Plate

Perhaps more so than any other game, tic-tac-toe ends up as a draw. However, when using the Tic-Tac-Toe Plate don’t expect snacks to go unfinished. Featuring square and circle one-ounce indentations (the circles won) the ceramic platter makes for a unique serving device—or at least one where everybody can end up a winner.

Keep Your Condiments At The Ready

Slider Central Condiment Caddy

Every meal needs embellishing. Some play it safe and stick with the salt and pepper, some take it up a notch and add hot sauce, and others, well, some people need a little bit of everything.

Designed with burgers in mind, but really appropriate for every meal, the Slider Central Condiment Caddy provides space for up to eight condiments. The 15.5-inch by 9.5-inch serving vessel is only 2.5-inches tall and comes complete with a semi-transparent lid, making it perfect for outdoor feasts—or for just keeping the go-to set of condiments always at the ready inside the fridge.
