Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and with it comes the labor of love that goes into preparing the holiday meal. After you’ve spent several hours preparing side dishes and main courses, it’s only reasonable to want to see admiration in the eyes of the people you feed them. An easy way to increase the chance of seeing the twinkle in their eyes is to use a acrylic serving tray. Even if you’re doing nothing but putting food on your plate, you’ll still make a much more impressive impression than if you were using plain old plates.
Serving bowls are at least 12″ to 14″ in diameter, slightly larger than regular serving bowls. They can be up to or over 21 inches in diameter. For a whole Thanksgiving turkey, aim for a plate with a minimum diameter of 16 inches.
Some acrylic tray are served in sets, but usually no more than two or three. These sets often include plates of different sizes, so you have more options for your money. Sets of plates of the same size are often used for handling after meals.
The serving platter has other minor features that are not decisive, but may influence your decision:
Standard serving bowls typically cost $10-$30, while higher quality serving bowls go up to $100. The best plates can cost hundreds of dollars.
