Every once in a while I come across something amazingly creative on the internets and I have to stop myself from shouting "WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT?!" out loud. I literally want to smack myself for not coming up with it on my own.
This is one of those things!!!!! I cannot get over it. It's genius.
I came across this company called Nora Fleming - their motto is "revolutionizing the art of entertaining." They sell plain white serving pieces - platters, plates, cheeseboards, you name it - and each one has a tiny hole drilled into the side. Separately, they sell what they call "minis" - tiny ceramic charms that fit perfectly into that little hole on each platter, which allows you to customize your serving platter for each occasion!
All of the serving pieces are white, and the little "minis" add an adorable whimsical touch to each platter or plate. So basically, it cuts out the need to have special "themed" plates or platters - the plain white serving pieces match everything, and you save room in your kitchen cabinets by not needing to buy serving pieces for Halloween or 4th of July or Christmas or Hanukkah that only get used once a year. All you need to do is swap out the cute little "mini" charm!
This is an absolutely genius idea and so, so perfect for someone like me (or my mother - AHEM Martha Jewart) who loves to entertain and loves having special serving pieces for different events and holidays.
Here are some of my favorites serving pieces and minis - SO freaking cute!
Minis: Jewish Star (so cute for latkes!) - Sombrero (lay out all the fixings for build-your-own-tacos!)
Watermelon - Carrot - Gerber Daisy - Red Heart - Artichoke (serve a hot spinach artichoke dip in an NF bowl) - Cheeseburger - Grill (so cute with grilled vegetables on the big platter!) - Cupcake
This would be a FABULOUS bridal shower or wedding gift - I'm drooling over the possibilities already. I could also see it being a great gift for moms or grandmas - too bad Mother's Day just passed! As soon as I can find a good reason to buy some, you better believe some of these adorable pieces are coming home with me!
