When I’m setting the table for guests or just making sure it looks nice I always like adding in a bit of fun to the set up. Mikasa has released some beautiful cast aluminum dishes that you can either use as display or even a serving piece for your table. The Celebrations line offers a sea shell dish, a whale, pineapples and more.
Mikasa sent us their Aluminum Whale Dishes, an 8 inch serving tray that actually has quite a bit of heft to it. The inside is enameled blue with details like fins, a smile and even ribbing on the bottom of the whale. The small size of the dish, it is 8″ from nose to fin tip, means you wont be serving large meals in the dish. But instead you can use the whale serving tray for candy, cheese, crackers or other small bites. The overall shape of whale will still be there no matter what you put in the tray and the details will be revealed once the food is gone.
If you’re not partial to using this adorable little guy for food, it also works great as a jewelry or watch holder. It would be perfect in a nautical themed bathroom, or even displayed on the wall. I absolutely love the fun shape and it’s a great addition to the table when we’re having a fun dinner party or just need something fun to add to the table.
The Celebrations by Mikasa Aluminum Whale Dish is hand wash only and because of the aluminum casting – dry immediately and put away. But the enameled interior will keep this fun dish food safe and swimming for many more dinner parties.
