A Serving of Sentiment
Remake a vintage platter as a welcoming sign of the season. Removable letter decals from the crafts store make this blueedged platter say “summer,” but the wording options are unlimited. Create one to suit a themed counter display, or hang one on an open cabinet door or against the back of a shelf. A grouping of smaller plates could be used to the same effect for wall art or as dish-descriptors on a buffet table. Old chipped platters can be found for less than $10 and smaller plates for even less, making them an affordable accent.
