Unique Appetizer Serving Trays and Plates
Unique Serving Trays
Looking for unique appetizer serving trays and plates? I have some unusual dishes as well as some fun plates for your favorite hors d'oeuvres. I love to entertain and having the right food and presentation can make such a difference.
Add color and personality while hosting your guests. I've also included some recipes, including dips that you might like to try as well as a video that teaches how to make sushi.

The Ex Tray
Isn't this unusual? Definitely good for a conversation starter. This would work well with small cubed appetizers such as cheese cubes or pineapple cubes, as well as small meatballs or cocktail franks, to name but a few.
Crab Serving Tray
This serving tray is perfect for crab cakes or any other type of seafood appetizer. I love both the colors and the design.
Making something for the big game?
Football Serving Tray
A very common appetizer for football games or football themed parties are just simple chips and dip. Isn't this a cool way to serve them? It really keeps with the fun of the theme.
Need some dip recipes?
Having the right dip can really help when you're entertaining. I hope you like these selections. Onion dip and Guacamole are particular hits in my house, although I'm partial to the bacon and cheese dip with Ranch.
Whale Serving Tray
Serving an appetizer from the ocean? Add some fun with this whale serving platter. This would be great for oysters, or shrimp kabobs.
Shrimp Cooking Tip
Try cooking your shrimp in a wok. You can add your favorite sauce to the wok for added flavor. Another idea is to check with the store you're purchasing the shrimp from. Sometimes they offer free marinade that they'll add to the shrimp before wrapping it up.
