When most people set the table in their homes, they use a basic setup with only the dishes they require for that particular meal. However, you may have encountered times when a table was set with a fancier layout. In these situations, glass charger plates were most likely a part of the equation. However, there are other ways you can implement these plates into your household.
Appetizers and Desserts
If you’re looking for a nice way to present your appetizers or desserts to your guests, glass charger plates can be an excellent option. These plates are small enough to easily pass around and offer a fancy look that will highlight the food placed on them. However, because these plates are typically intended to hold food, you may want to use a doily or linen napkin on them before placing the food.
Create an Elegant Centerpiece
Another alternative use for glass charger plates is as an elegant centerpiece for your table. These plates are the perfect size to arrange pillar candles in varying sizes to light up the center of your table. You can further dress up your centerpiece with flowers, greenery, or other decorative items.
A Floral Decoration
Glass charger plates can also be used to create a floral decoration for an end table, coffee table, or dinner table. Simply arrange your favorite flowers or greenery on the plate and set it in the center of the table. It’s the perfect accent piece for any occasion.
A Party Favor
If you’re looking for a unique, memorable party favor for your wedding or another special event, decorating glass charger plates can be an ideal solution. Use paint or a ceramic marker to decorate the plates or write something on it and set one at each place for your guests to take home.
