Living somewhere small shouldn't stop you from entertaining. But you will need to choose your servingware carefully to ensure that you can really lay on a feast. This is where raised and tiered dishes come into their own. You can cram much more on the table when dishes are perched up on pedestals of different heights or are stacked over a series of levels. It will also look more impressive too.
Don't limit your dishes to particular uses either. Cake stands can just as easily display crudités, canapés and savoury tarts as they can patisserie.
And the same rule applies as with furniture, if bowls are raised up on pedestals and you can see underneath them and through the sides of them further into the room, they will do their bit to make your room feel that bit larger too.
