for over thirty years i have collected a variety of serving dishes, platters, and tableware. i often think that these collections are an obsession, since i enjoy searching for more each year. i was looking through my holiday photographs and realized just how many different types of presentations are possible with these unique dishes.
i have several different sizes of olive plates, all different lengths and widths. these plates can be used for a variety of relish options, including tomatoes, carrots, mini corn, and even pickles. i often use them for cracker plates alongside dips and spreads.
the long narrow characteristic of these dishes makes them very attractive on the table and can be used as a focal point to attract attention to the colorful appetizers. i enjoy experimenting with different table presentations for each holiday.
