Because of the warmer weather, light suppers are often appreciated. Serve fruit and veggies, bread and oil, and cheese and crackers. This simple meal can make quite a statement when you use complementary appetizer plates and serving trays.


As the sun starts to go down, set out bowls of snacks, like nuts and candies in these tilt bowls. They also double as eye-catching candleholders. Perfect for being out on the patio!
