I love entertaining and now that Summer is around the corner, it is time to start planning some fab summer soirees. Having lived in big cities for much of my life, I have always been a little short on space for entertaining. But with a little creativity, I have managed to throw some fun fetes and cram lots of friends and family into a small space. I have some tips on furniture arrangement for small space entertaining here. Today, I am going to focus on serveware. Having a nice arsenal of serveware that can serve double and even triple duty is really essential to pint sized Martha Stewart living. Here are my favorite must have serving pieces that are affordable, chic and can be used for a myriad of dishes.
These spreaders are great for dips, brunch jams and jellies or even a self serve sandwich bar $24.95 for a set of 4 from Crate and Barrel.

I love everything from the West Elm Hammered metal collection, but I have two of these hammered metal bowls and I love them! They are $24.95 a piece and can be used for cold and hot dishes and go with any theme or decor!

This $24.00 white platter from West Elm can serve triple duty as serveware for meats, bread and other foods and also as a tray for a mini bar or even to hold candles.

Crate and Barrel Mini Tongs can be used for everything from Salad to meats and bread! $9.99

This is a MUST HAVE!!! You can use the bowls and tray as separate pieces. Spread cheeses and crackers on the tray and put dips in the bowls for a great presentation. A total steal at $9.99 from West Elm.

I have about ten sets of the $2.95 sugar tongs which I never use for sugar. I use them for everything from Olives to cheese cubes to shrimp cocktail. They are the perfect pint sized tool for serving bite sized treats.
