I love shaped bowls for a whimsical touch to kids boards and holiday boards. Check out my Back to School Kid's Board and 4th of July boards for examples.
Usually, I get my shaped bowls at Daiso (a Japanese store in los Angeles) and at the dollar section at Target during respective holidays. This set, however, is great if you cant get to these places.
This 5" Mini Skillet is the perfect size for keeping fun dips or hot items corralled on a board. See my Cinco de Mayo Platter where I used this for the Queso or my Game Day Meatball Board, where I plated the BBQ meatballs. It is also great for a s'mores chocolate dip on a dessert board.
You, no doubt, see these all the time on my feed. I serve them on the side for guests to grab pieces of cheese or olives. Or I serve them with fixins' already on the pick. See CharcuterTREE board, my Charcuterie Cones (aka Corona Cones), among many others.
PS- They come in all sorts of colors to match the occasion.
