Show and Tell Friday - Addicted to Platters


I haven't participated in Show and Tell for a few months so I thought I would join in with Kelli at There's No Place Like Home. Be sure to go visit her and see all the other participants!

I went to grab one of my platters today for a Women's Relief Society Pool Party and I never realized before how much I love huge platters. I am always buying one but the problem is where do you keep them all?
My Country Kitchen has this built in cabinet that I keep my Platters in. I place them 4 or 5 deep on a wooden plate rack. I purchased these wooden plate racks from a kitchen store that uses them to display plates for sale.
I opened one of the doors and I snapped a few pictures of a few of the Platters. You can see the wooden plate racks they are sitting on. Behind each platter are about 4 more. This really works well and you can rotate the platters for display.

During a Holiday I bring all the Platters forward for that Holiday!

I love your platters! I think my favorite pictured there is the rooster one. Well, I like the lemonade one too! And the wood display stand. That is great. I can so use one of those. I will have to look for one.

This is a good idea. I have mine stored in the bottom of the armoire, wrapped in paper.
You have some interesting ones.
