Stylish Appetizer Plate GIVEAWAY!

Porcelain Plate Giveaway
One thing I've learned from being a food blogger/photographer is the importance of presentation. Of course great taste is key, but we "eat with our eyes," as they say. An attractively presented dish will be that much more appealing, even if the food itself is the same. That's why I like to find interesting, stylish dishes for serving finger food to my guests. If you're the same way, you'll be happy to hear that Inmod.com, an online retailer of modern d├ęcor and home furnishings, contacted me recently to host a giveaway of their Porcelain Modular Square Plate with Wooden Frame (pictured above). I like that with this set you can choose to arrange the plates neatly inside the wooden frame or spread them out separately for more people to enjoy. If this is something you'd like to have, here's what you can do. This giveaway is only open to US residents within the 48 contiguous states. To enter to win this plate set, simply do as many of the following as you want and leave a separate comment for each thing you do! Please also make sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you win. The giveaway will close on September 16 at midnight, and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter. Good luck! THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED!

  18. What a lovely set! What wouldn't I photograph on it? A regular freelancing job requires me to use only square or rectangular plates, so this would be such a great help! For myself though, I can easily see them being filled with cookies or candies first.
