Modern Serveware for the Modern Dining Experience
According the old adage, presentation is everything. This concept is equally true when it comes to food preparation and presentation. For the modern host or hostess who really wants to wow their guests, presenting hors d' oeuvre on a modern serving tray can really make the difference between an experience that is simply ordinary and one of unique refinement that a guest isn't soon to forget.
How to Buy Modern Serving Dishes
When choosing contemporary serving dishes, one must put oneself in the shoes of the modern host or hostess. What sort of aesthetic are you trying to achieve? For formal gatherings, serveware sets with a more subdued style in an elegant black or white may be just the ticket. Conversely, for a more casual dining experience, multicolor serveware can project a bold aesthetic, resulting in a dinner party that's more playful, more comfortable and less formal.
YLighting offers a wide assortment of modern serveware and serving dishes from renowned brands such as Alessi and Tom Dixon, encompassing aesthetics which range from subtle and refined ceramic dishes, to bold metallic or textured modern serving platters which can accommodate large dinner parties.
Catering to Every Whim
One of the most daunting things when diving into the arena of modern serving dishes is the sheer quantity of different variations on that theme. Modern serving plates, platters and bowls all serve different functions, so the trick is knowing the function you want the piece to serve before you start. If one endeavors to pick something that can hold fruit or other similar kitchen items, try a large modern serving basket that is not just functional, but can also act as a piece of household decor even when its not serving a practical purpose.
Serveware sets are likewise an important purchase. The ever-present salt and pepper servers must strike a delicate balance between form and function, and drinking coffee or tea is never a complete experience without the proper cream and sugar servers. To complete your dining table, one must not forget to choose a modern centerpiece bowl or plate that will tie all of it together. Add in matching condiment servers for extra style.
