One of my favorite sources for entertaining dishes is CB2. I like them because they make dishes in really exaggerated shapes like tall and skinny or super short and wide. (You can see I used them here at my fondue party.) The shapes feel modern so you could serve soup in the little fat cups with tiny spoons or have the tall glasses lined up in a row with stripey straws. I also like them because they are pretty cheap. Everything shown here is around $3/piece so its not the end of the world if one breaks. I started small and added a few more pieces every time I had a party and it was really easy to grow a nice little collection of party dishes.
