Serve your next meal in style

From SheKnows Canada
Bored with your current crop of bowls, plates and trays? Give your next dinner party a stylish boost with our picks of some eye-catching serveware sure to impress guests and create a gorgeous table setting.

Oar server

Oar server

Whatever you're serving — be it cheeses, meats or mini desserts — will look even better when you send it out to guests on this oar-shaped plank made from sustainable acacia wood (cb2.com, $28). The large, handcrafted board is perfect for a wide array of snacks and easily integrates among your other serveware and flatware, no matter the shape or colour.

Bergen serving bowl

Serving bowl

Even when not in use at a dinner party, this elegant glass serving bowl (crateandbarrel.com, $25) would look great atop any counter or coffee table. We love the delicate texture and can picture it either standing alone or filled to the brim with fresh seasonal fruit when it's not being used to serve something delicious.

Red stoneware pitcher

Stoneware pitcher

The next time you offer guests water, do it in style with this rustic Le Creuset stoneware pitcher in a vibrant shade of red (williams-sonoma.com, $44). The durable vessel keeps drinks cold and won't absorb the flavours of whatever you had in it previously. We also love that the porcelain enamel-glaze finish is easy to clean and resists chips, scratches and stains.

Juliette oversized serving platters

Oversized platters

Elevate your next dinner party to chic new heights simply by serving mains and sides on these pretty platters embossed with floral designs and scrollwork (potterybarn.com, $77 to $102). Choose from round, rectangular and oval platters, or pick up all three.

Textured dip bowls

Textured dip bowls

We were instantly smitten by these eye-catching textured, glazed ceramic bowls (westelm.com, $4 each), which can be used to serve your favourite dips at a party or as prep bowls for various ingredients while you cook. There are four stylish shades to choose from, and they're each textured in a slightly different way.

Glass beverage dispenser

Glass beverage dispenser

Continually pouring drinks for every guest can get tiresome, so why not let them serve themselves? We love this quirky glass beverage dispenser shaped like an oversized glass beaker (cb2.com, $50). Serve anything from water flavoured with citrus slices to punch to lemonade in this dispenser, which will look at home on any table.

Colourful coffee pot

If you're serving coffee to a smaller group, we suggest doing so in a pot that gets noticed. This vibrant brewer (anthropologie.com, $38) comes in several bold hues (we're partial to the green) and brews six cups of coffee.
