If you've ever been to a fancy restaurant, you were most likely seated at a table with more plates, glasses and silverware than you're typically familiar with, each with an intended purpose for the meal. Similarly, modern home kitchens have evolved to include more than just dinner plates, cereal bowls, and standard-sized cutlery. When it comes to hosting dinner parties or simply having options when it comes to snacktime, having an assortment of kitchenware is increasingly common for families and home chefs. Appetizer plates are a staple in kitchen cabinets alongside standard dinner plates, for serving salads, fruit, cheeses, desserts and much more. Smaller appetizer plates mean better aesthetics and overall functionality for the times when you don't need the excess size of a dinner plate. Ready to upgrade your kitchen for your next soirée? Check out some of these appetizer plates.
