Use books, boxes and anything else you can find in your home to create a riser and remember to cover them with fabric.
If all your platters are one colour (for example white) consider using different coloured and textured fabrics as accent colours on your table. Make sure these colours match the colour theme already decided on for the rest of the party decor.
Place a strand of white lights under the fabric to highlight a specific platter of food, the centerpiece or even the whole table.
