  • Oh I love these! I would use them to officially celebrate the start of summer 2011…and let me tell you – I’m starting to wonder if summer (or spring!) will ever arrive in Michigan. 🙂

  • A fondue bar! Chocolate, caramel, a strawberry sauce…or maybe different types of melted cheeses in the sauce dishes. The dipping items would be arranged artfully on the platters and the cake stand – cake, strawberries, bananas…I think it would be so cute!

    Thanks for the chance! I just love C&B!

    xo,

  • Sharon

    I host two major parties each year for my husband’s company…a summer cookout and Christmas party. Due to budget cuts at the area office we decided to take on these get-togethers. These beautiful pieces would replace the mish mash of old serving platters and vessels I currently use as I’d rather put the funds into the food for all rather than the serving pieces. (With this economy it’s always about choices!)

  • I love clean white platters and bowls! I would use these for Easter dinner and dessert…and for every get-together after!

  • Ever since I discovered Amy’s beautiful dessert buffets I’ve been wanting square/rectangle dishes. So far I have 1 sq. plate so this set is awesome! 🙂 I would love to be able to use these to decorate for showers, parties, ladies retreats, etc. that we have at church. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  • i never seem to win these things and yet i keep entering them. ha ha.

    well my sis is getting married next summer and since we are two diy gals, these would be perfect for the shower, the wedding and any other wedding related place we could use them.

    personally, we are building a huge addition on our house that will include a nice big kitchen. our current kitchen has no more than 5′ of countertop and is super tiny. i can’t wait to have a place big enough for entertaining and these dishes would be PERFECT for our first open house after construction is finished!!!!

  • Kristin

    Love it! Both of my kids birthdays are coming up and I would all of this gorgeous stuff to use at their parties!

    White is always my favorite route to take for platters and dishes for dessert tables…since they pretty much go with any theme I know I will get a lot of use out of them. I’m not a fan of one time use items. So that should answer the question of how I would use them 😀

In the past 2 weeks I’ve hosted both a baby shower & a birthday party..I use the white square dinner plates already & love the cleanliness of the look they give..platters have been on my wish list for a while now. What I love about the white is the variation, at 4th of July I can incorporate red & blue accents, during the holidays they blend well with fall & winter colors. Oh so many uses!

  • Evelyn J

    This past year has thrown my life towards bad things and worse, and only in the past few months have things started consistently to look up. I have been given new opportunities, been blessed with amazing new friends, and would love to thank them all for simply being them with a party, and what better way to present the food on these beautiful pieces! They would make the occasssion just that much more wonderful.

  • I would use them everyday to serve my grandchildren snacks. I am teaching them that fine things (luxury & opulence) are daily entitlements, not to be reserved only for special occasions.

  • Cindy L

    I would use these combined with navy & red accented pieces to create a nautical theme for summer entertaining.

  • So many wonderful comments and deserving people. When I think of deserving people, though, I think of my Mom. She sacrificed so much for her family over the years, she never really had nice items like these platters and serving dishes. When she hosts our extended family holiday events (Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day and birthdays) the food is put out in old plastic Tupperware and large lids become platters. I am not sure if she even knows what it is like to “stage” a meal or buffet, but with these simple, but elegant, serving vessels (and help from your blog!) I sure would like to help her learn! Thank you!

  • Stacey

    I would use these to help get my small bakery business up and running 🙂 I love C & B stuff and these will just give my displays so much more glamor! Thank you 🙂

  • jsburrell

    a. i love crate&barrel

  • Mark Payne

    We’d use them for our wedding.

  • I have a graduating senior and she would like to have a nice party with lots of fun foods. I have a mish mash of old plates and one platter with a turkey on it! My table would be beautiful with the new vessels and also something I could pass on to her.

  • jen

    At 40, I have become ‘Mother of the Bride’. My parents died two years ago, and my baby sister is getting married in June, and the reception is at MY house! I would use these beautiful pieces to make her special day even more special (and what a lovely wedding present to her they would be after!)!

  • Ingrid

    SERIOUSLY….with all the bold and colorful Spring vegetables, soft and beautiful Spring flowers….I could go on forever naming the bazillion ways these amazing monochromatic serving pieces could be used! Most of all, at this time of year, I imagine the soft pastels of easter eggs & sweet treats surrounded by gorgeous tulips and and other assorted Spring blooms….from my own garden of course!

  • Jen

    These are fabulous – I would love them!

They could use these for countless special events that raise funds to send kids from all backgrounds to summer camp. We’re really trying to show people that we aren’t just a rustic youth camp, but we can put on classy events too! These would be perfect.

  • I would use them for decorating, planting (lemon grass, herbs or flowers for a center piece), obviously serving…and whatever else I can think of!

  • Erin Lane

    Oh heart be still, I love this collection!! My Fiance and I will be hosting gatherings of our friends and family and this serveware would be perfect!

  • Katie Difilippo

    Hello Crate and Barrel and Amy Atlas! Thank you for holding such a “sweet” contest! I love these dishes and I think that they would be the perfect display for the cookie bar I’ll be having at my June 25, 2011 wedding. Cookie bars are a big deal in my family. All of my Aunts, cousins, and girlfriends will be baking to make the cookie bar both beautiful and delicious. I think it’s an amazing way to acknowledge all of the wonderful women in my (and my fiance’s) life too! Our wedding colors are plum, blossom, and storm cloud (aka dark purple, pale pink, and grey). The cookie table will follow the same color scheme and these dishes would be a beautiful way to display our gorgeous cookies! The wedding reception will be held at Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, PA… one of the oldest Victorian Greenhouses in the country. Our guests will have the opportunity to gather in the tropical forrest for cookie tasting and cocktails! Thank you for your consideration and I would gladly share pictures of the cookie table afterwards. Have a great day and thanks again!

  • I would use these for a dessert table inspired baby portrait session

  • emily rudnicki

    i would love to add these platters to our C+B collection! my fiance and i are hosting our rehearsal dinner at our home in june and this would be a great way to display our backyard barbeque!

  • Hello!
    I would you use these vessels to respresent my new brand, website and life. I recently underwent chemo therapy after an Ovarian Cancer diagnosis in Dec 2009. I spent most of 2010 sick but still managed a couple of clients during that time. 2011 is my year! I am currently working on a beautiful project to relaunch my business and website with the help of the lovely Lara Casey and Emily Ley. Both of these ladies are extremely brilliant. I would love to use these vessels in a special collaboration with you Amy Atlas to to represent my new brand, my creativity and my continued fight against Ovarian Cancer awareness. Thank you kindly for the opportunity.
    Warmly,
    Yvette R. Price

Ever since my husband and I have been married, we have used hand-me-downs for dishes, furniture, etc.. Well when we moved in to our own house five years ago, we started buying new things and an everyday serving set is something that we still have not found for our home. I know that these would be the perfect addition to our dish set, and something that would look great in our newly renovated dining room.

Unfortunately, I had to borrow some pieces from a friend, so I would love to have my own set for entertaining. I absolutely love throwing parties and baking, which I haven’t been able to do before we bought our house! I’m planning my best friend’s bridal shower and I have been wanting vessels just like these! Looking into the future, I could definitely use these pieces for throwing birthday parties for our children and any other party. Since we bought the house, I can’t wait to host holidays at our house and the vessels would be the perfect addition!

A lot of my clients do not have their own platters and I find myself loaning out the couple that I have. Winning these platters would be amazing! Thanks for the wonderful blog!

    Ohh I love Amy Atlas and Crate and Barrel! I would use these for my Mexican Fiesta housewarming party this summer! They would have dual uses too savory and sweet! I would have an orange linen tablecloth with a colorful runner or two to go with the fiesta theme. I would hang one of those mexican cut paper banners on the wall where the table will be displayed. A flower display of sunflowers, lilies, red and orange roses and hydrangeas would be at the center of the table in a terracotta pot. I would display yummy appetizers such as taquitos, mini quesadillas, individual nacho boxes, on the large rectangular platters and square platters. I would display steak, chicken, shrimp and veggie mini tacos on the small rectangular platters. I love the sauce dishes and would use them for garnishes, such as guacamole, lemon wedges and chopped cilanto and onion.
    For dessert I would use the large rectangular platter to display mini-churros and min-donuts. The sauce dishes would contian warm dulce de leche sauce, chocolte sauce and a berry sauce for dipping! The large cake platter will display a homemade flan. I would use the remaining platters to display some traditional mexican candies and lime and margarita inspired cupcakes!

  • I am always a big fan of White and glass tableware, they are so clean and crisp no matter what desserts or food you put on them. Simplicity of these vessels is the best and I would definitely use them for presenting beautiful desserts, cakes and appetizers. I am into baking and photography and I will use these vessels for my projects.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Crate & Barrel! I can’t find anything that comes close in Germany so these would be a perfect gift to take back with me for all of my parties (which have been inspired by this site ;-> )

  • Tonya

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Crate & Barrel! I can’t find anything as elegant yet sturdy living in Germany and these would be a perfect accessory to take back to host all of my dinner parties. Not to mention, they would also be a good base to get my party business going with all of the ideas that have inspired me (from this site of course ;-> ). Have to have them!!

    Nine years ago I joined a volunteer organization in Alexandria, VA that raises money for our local hospital. We’ve been in existence for over 75 years and have donated over $2.5 million to the hospital for projects such as an infant security monitoring system, infusion treatment rooms for the Cancer Center, a dedicated stroke care unit, and nursing scholarships. Recently we accepted our biggest challenge to date when we pledged $1 million towards the construction of a Patient Care Center, featuring 24 single patient rooms dedicated to the care of post-surgical patients. It would be so fun for me to create a beautiful dessert table to show my appreciation to this dedicated group of women, who have donated (and continue to donate) many hours of hard work.

  • Yona

    I want to make desserts for my two children under 3 and photograph them in these platters and save the photos for their memories.

  • Katie | RunawayOctober

    I think the correct question should be “What wouldn’t you use these for?” 😀 These are gorgeous. I love simple white dishes, because then you can use napkins and other decor is make your table pop while your food is still center stage. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    I LUV these and will have lots of cocktail parties with them!

  • Marilyn

    I would use these for the “tea party” I throw for my daughters and granddaughters each year to teach them about “beauty” in things, surroundings, and themselves. They create, setup, and shop for this special event we share. Is the highlight of our year!
