“I’m only going to buy one thing,” you think as you walk into a store. That one thing might be cutlery for your friend’s upcoming wedding. One thing, one thing…
But then, the servingware catches your eye. A serving platter, and it’s so unique, it starts to give you dreams of merrymaking grandeur. You don’t regularly host dinner parties or entertain, but this dish makes you want to.
Such a dish exists! (Or rather, it will if you want it to). Like the platter below? Vote here to see it in Dillard’s stores in Spring 2013. You can also check out and vote on other creative submissions.
This handy all-in-one serving dish, designed by Chariton Alexakis for our Farm to Table project, has endless possibilities.
Put this tasty Peanut Butter Dip in the middle, and surround it with pieces of fruit, varying the degrees of sweetness. Strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, honeydew, grapes – go wild! Or, fill it with snackables like different mixtures of nuts, cheese straws, trail mixes and the like. There are 9 spaces to fill.
A salsa dip in the middle, with various textures of chips surrounding it is sure to be a winner. You can also place the chips in the middle compartment, with different dips in the surrounding spaces.
