Bonjour Yellamaraju ! Indeed, you are correct on the literal translation of this sentence. However, its meaning in context is the one we put: "mettre les petits plats dans les grands" is a relatively common expression to say "to make a special effort, to go big" when organising an event for example. I will add the literal translation to the example to avoid confusion. Merci et à bientôt !
