Boost your snack spread!

Boost your snack spread!

Is your table looking a little flat? Keep things interesting by adding a bit of height and variation to your spread.

When it comes to table arrangements, aesthetics are practically an art form. But you don’t have to be a pro to keep your “table-scape” dynamic and chic. Using found objects from around the house, arrange serving dishes and platters to make your dish arrangements more welcoming and visually appealing.

  • Place a layer of dominoes or books under your serving platters to give them a little boost.
  • Use empty shoe boxes or gift boxes to add height.
  • Cake stands and cupcake holders can be used for more than desserts. Display appetizers and finger foods on cupcake towers or other dessert dishes for a nice balance.
  • Don’t forget to set a drip dish next to your dips to keep serving spoons from making a mess or falling into the dish.
