More than Ordinary: Serving Platters | The Fresh Exchange

I hate to say it, but the holiday season is fast approaching. It seems at the first twinge of cold stores begin filling with everything you might need for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I am someone who never jumps on the holiday train. I have given myself one box in our house that holds our Christmas ornaments and one other for lights for our tree. Besides that we don’t own any more holiday related items in our house. I can’t ever rationalize the purchase of it, but what I can rationalize is the need for great items that you can use year around for hosting the best holiday dinner party or attending one for that matter. One of the key pieces to successfully enjoying the holiday season of dinner parties is having serving platters that not only make your food shine but aren’t just the everyday choice while still keeping a classic touch. I gathered a few serving platters to help get you started if you are looking to add to your collection or are planning to host a holiday dinner this year.

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
