So I decided to get some more platters and got hooked on them. I put everything on 'em, from simple cinnamon toast for the kids to a heap of Chicken fettuccine Alfredo. Everything looks better on a platter.
It takes a little more work on my part to wash a few more dishes but it's worth the extra effort to make an otherwise ordinary meal a little less so.
Everytime I take them to a function of some sort, I am asked where I got them. So in case you're interested, I have all that info. You'd be surprised at some of the deals.
(This line is a little spendy so it's taken me a while to gather.)
2. White, modern, clean lines, Wal-Mart - $9.00
3. Vintage, antique shop - $20.00 (It was a bit overpriced but I really wanted it.)
1. .99 cents
4. Large wicker tray - $1.99
When I spied these large, heavy and insanely priced platters at the thrift store,
I immediately thought of this movie scene and inserted the words " a perfectly good white platter" haha...
1. Lenox Butler's Pantry, dept. store
(I think this is the small platter and has since been redesigned.
It is also more expensive now go figure..)
In 2005, they were $40.00.
2. Marshall's - $7.99
3. Salvation Army thrift store - $2.99
As you can tell, I'm not opposed to looking at the thrift shop before I head to the department store or other retail store. I've had a little luck with it. So try that route first if you are in the market for some new platters and enjoy!
