Serving Trays that Add Style and Sparkle this Holiday Season!
The holiday season is right around the corner! Thanksgiving, Hannukkah, Christmas and then New Years…it’s a whirlwind of joyful parties, family gatherings and events. At Julia Knight, we know that being the “hostess with the mostess” is top of mind as you design and create your holiday must-do celebrations. From guest lists, party themes, menus and decorations, we would love to ease your party planning list by providing the most stunning serveware trays for all your hostessing needs.
Nothing is more of a crowd pleaser than a curated selection of gourmet cheeses and olives, sliced, diced and presented on a chilled marble serving tray. Depending on the guest count, we suggest picking up 3-5 hard cheeses, such as an extra sharp cheddar, asiago or a gruyere. For a well-rounded selection, add 2-3 soft cheeses, like a brie, chevre or a Roquefort. For a visual standout, slice some of the hard cheeses as well as squaring them up, compiling an interesting selection of tasty delights. For a dash of color, drop in a smattering of grapes, berries and basil leaves.
For sophisticated style, reach for the Eclipse Marble Cheese Tray with Cheese Knife or the Florentine Marble Cheese in a silver or gold finish. The Eclipse marble serving tray is a larger rectangle style with textural handles while the Florentine marble serving tray is round with a serpentine style edging. The Eclipse Cheese Tray comes with a fab yet functional cheese knife…perfect for soft cheeses. To finish your tray of goodness, the Julia Knight Collection has an expansive range of lovely cheese sets as well as spreaders from every collection. You’re sure to find a plethora of stylish options for every occasion.
Small to Large, Serving Trays are in Charge!
The focus of the holiday season is gathering with friends, family and loved ones. It’s also the perfect time to really spend one-on-one time and create intimate experiences with those closest to you. Whether you’re planning small dinner parties, fantastic fete’, large glamorous galas, or simply having a cocktail with your significant other or bestie, Julia Knight has you covered.
For casual affair and spontaneous shindigs, reach for the Eclipse Collection in the Metallic finish. These pieces have a gorgeous raku pottery-like look, but have the durability of metal of which they are made. From the cool, Steel Blue finish, to the warmth of the Bronze, both finishes are absolutely divine. This collection offers a wide variety of serving trays. For savory starters, such as tapas, the Eclipse Stackable Square Trays in the 6”, 9” or the 12” or the Eclipse 14” Tray. To add a dipping sauce, pair any of these pieces up with the pretty Eclipse 4” Bowl or the Eclipse 6” Bowl. These pieces are beautifully created to compliment each other and serve as a practical yet pretty pairing. For main course meals, such as Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham, the Eclipse 15” Platter or the Eclipse Rectangular Tray with Handles are awesome! The size and scale of these serving trays will be supportive and yet leave room for tasty embellishments, such as fingerling potatoes and carrots. And don’t forget the dynamic duo, the Eclipse Salad Serving Set. The swirled handles are absolutely handsome! The spoon is great for sides and the large fork is great for main course meats or hearty salads.
The Classic Collection is chic and sleek. For a fancy fete’ or a stupendous soirée, the stylish trays from this collection are breathtakingly beautiful. And for a bold entertaining statement, mix and match a special selection of these serving trays, bowls and serving utensils from the Classic Collection. Hand cut, hand polished mother of pearl squares, surround the each of each piece, while the inset is enamel with infused hand crushed mother of pearl. The color palette is filled with soft Snow to brazen blues and tantalizing teals, with a wide range of lovely color options in between.
For simply elegant serving trays or large serving trays with handles, the Classic Collection is the way to go. This collection offers two large rectangular handled trays that are amazing for a wide range of entertaining needs. Ideal for an impressive charcuterie board, filled with a mix of cured meats, olives, cheeses, crackers, fruits, nuts and more, your guests will go crazy for the wild selection of this delicious spread. Mixing cocktails and serving up aperitifs never looked so good! The size of these trays make it easy to gather all of your barware in one place and to create a “moving” bar that can travel to whatever room the party takes you!
For more moderate serving trays, that still have finesse and flair, the Classic Octagonal Trays in 16” or 20” are an easy go-to. Layer and pile high, a vibrant selection of veggies, such as yellow and green peppers, English cucumbers, carrots and mini bite size tomatoes on either tray. Then add your favorite veggie dip, like a sumptuous garlic and herb recipe, to the Classic Pagoda Bowl for the guest favorite. Make sure to double the batch because this will be the favorite place for people to visit and conversate.
And once again, the Classic Collection offers a expansive array of serving utensils for just about every meal and every occasion. For your starters and appetizers, reach for the Classic Spreaders and the Classic Cocktail Fork and Spoon. Smaller scale for hor d'oeuvres and petite treats, these serving pieces will enhance every dish a canape. For the marble serving trays, don’t forget to add the Classic Cheese Serving Set. And for main course meals and main courses, the Julia Knight Collection provides the Classic Serving Spoon, Meat Fork and/or Salad Serving Set. Save the best for last with the Classic Cake Knife and Cake Server.
