Turkey Day Tableware
It's just about turkey time so in the spirit of the holiday, we've put together some of our favorite tableware and serving plates to ease the kitchen-to-dining room heavy lifting.
When you're in trouble with a lack of trivets, this ovenproof porcelain dish will come in handy. The handles do double duty to keep the hot pot off the tabletop and also let you hold it with one hand and serve with the other should the occasion call for it.
There are few manufacturers who warm our hearts—and tables—like Heath Ceramics in Sausailto, California. This ceramic bowl, in a seasonal red hue, could be a salad-serving piece as its name suggests, though we think it'd look most excellent filled with green beans.
This serving-carving tray is a piece you'll be thankful for throughout the year. It acts as a carving station (catching the juices below), a cold plate (you can insert an ice pack between the top and bottom pieces), and a serving tray (when you use the pieces separately).
A departure from the traditional silver gravy boat, Ikea's modern rendition is more like a tea pot—and will hold up to 24 ounces of the good stuff. The best part: its double walls will keep the gravy warm throughout the meal so they'll be no need to run to the microwave or turn on the elements again.
