Plate Chargers: How & Why We Use Them | Partytrends.ca

A plate charger is a tabletop accessory that is used as part of the place setting. Think of it as an elegant tray that is placed under the dinner plate for style rather than function. Sized slightly larger, the finish or colon of the charger plate frames the dinnerware and enhances the table setting.

Originally used more with wedding meal settings, plate chargers are quickly becoming an beautiful way to add glamour, elegance, and shine to a dinner table. Using festive and colourful plate chargers for holidays or other events adds a seasonal flair to an otherwise plain table. Festive plate chargers are also easier to store than a full festive dinnerware set.

Chargers compliment any table setting, especially when paired with plastic or paper dinnerware. Adding spice to your table, chargers and disposable dinnerware make a grand presentation.
