The simple answer is because they are extremely useful and look attractive. Side plates, by their very name, are versatile items. They can fit on your table alongside full-sized dinner plates to hold napkins, bread rolls and other tasty food. You can pile side salads on them or use them to serve starters and hors d'oeuvres. Be it for a family dinner, formal entertaining or a garden BBQ, they always have the edge over large plates!
Small plates are also ideal for buffet spreads and parties inside or out. As for desserts, imagine a piece of chocolate fudge cake dusted with icing sugar. Delicious, but does it not look a bit lost on a dinner plate? On a smaller dessert plate, it looks perfect. Then there are snack plates, another use for small plates. Easy to manage, they are ideal for sandwiches and fit comfortably by you while you work or read. They are also just the right size to use for children.
