Serverware - Platters

Not only can the perfect platter get guests salivating, but it can also create a visual statement, complementing the look and taste of your food. Keep cheese platters, fromage boards or long wooden platters on hand to share with friends, or something more fun and decorative for summer barbecues. The right platter should be stylish, lightweight and easy to manoeuvre from room to room, here are some tips for finding the right one for you.

How to Make Buying Serving Platters a Pleasure

  1. Trays and platters are used interchangeably, but it’s good to know the practical differences between the two: Platters serve multiple diners, while trays deliver food from one place to another.
  2. The size of your serving platter should match the occasion. Long rectangular platters are able to reach one end of a dining table to another, allowing enough room for nibbles to go around during dinner parties and holidays. Small round platters, meanwhile, are perfect for wine time and intimate chats.
  3. Buying multiple platters can better accommodate guests, and allow for playing with different styles. For easy cohesion, stick to similar shapes or if you prefer, mix it up.
  4. Platter shapes can add style and atmosphere around the dinner table. Round cheese platters or an oval platter can have a laid back feel. Square and rectangular platters have a sense of class and sophistication. Unusual shapes provide a more contemporary edge or can be tailored to the occasion, like Christmas trees and stars.
  5. Want more space? Use a 2 or 3-tier platter, which can be especially good for desserts and sandwiches, and takes up less room on your dining table or bench.
  6. Stylish yet strong materials are important to consider when creating the perfect grazing plate. Melamine is almost unbreakable thanks to its shatterproof build and scratch-resistant surface. Bamboo is sturdy and heat-resistant, with antibacterial properties. Stoneware is tough, especially with a reactive glaze, while bone china is sleek, high quality and dishwasher safe.
  7. Use platters to show off your unique taste and to accent your kitchen décor. Thick slabs of bamboo or acacia wood provide sharp, clean lines and Scandi-inspired minimalism. Floral prints evoke the breezy feel of springtime. Sharp monochromes and soft neutral tones are always a guaranteed classic. Even matte finishes and textured surfaces can add some warmth and depth.
  8. You can even use platters for ornamental purposes, keeping it on display by leaning it against your kitchen wall or sitting it on your countertop. Create the perfect spread! Head to your nearest Myer store to check out the latest platters and other serveware from all your favourite brands.
