(Note: I try to write about products/services that are not only great design but do some good, somehow, on Thursdays. I don't always succeed, but I do try!).
The Knock on Wood plate from Original Good, an online shop filled with ethically sourced goodies, not only supports artisans and their families in the Philippines via fair trade arrangement, but will also make your presentation of hors d'oeuvres look oh so swank. Of course every piece is different, but the grain in the one pictured is so stunning...maybe you don't need to put anything on it at all.
Your guests and your conscience will thank you...of course a perfect hostess gift, too.
