Modern Party Dishes

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.

Appetizer plates/ Mini Bowl / Dana Cooler I also love their serving dishes like the Cuatro Platters and the Bento Platters.

    love the appetizer plate. I think you should do another green one. It’s good appetizer color as well.

    I love CB2 for their tableware too! I own their square dishes and bowls – they can double up as platters and serving bowls at cocktail parities or set a pretty decent modern table.

    LOVE this idea! I’ve slowly been collecting party platters and casserole dishes for serving for a few years. I usually find good deals at Home Goods but I LOVE the party trays and need to check out CB2 online!

    I LOVE CB2. I have since they were only a catalog company with one little store in Chicago. I was ELATED when they opened in California. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Love coloured dishware. I love mixing it up- I don’t actually have a matching set, even from my wedding china!

    Cute! I find I’m always wavering on what I really like for dishes and glassware, so I’ve accumulated quite the hodgepodge. On the plus side, it’s all in the same color scheme.

    Funny, we received these really quirky apéro plates from CB2 for our Philly wedding (Part 2)!! Love them, need an occasion to use them! (hint: you should come for an apéro or cookie party!)
