Patterned Plates

We all know that we eat with our eyes first. The same dish, nicely displayed and presented will generally make you want to eat it more than if it comes spooned into yesterday’s take-out containers.

Don’t get me wrong, some foods are best served stripped of any fancy tableware (think authentic fish and chips served in newspaper or street food served on paper plates) but for most dishes, a little extra effort never hurts. Here are some of my current favourites – I especially love the Kate Spade and Anthropologie ones!

Which one would you add to your dinner table?

    WokandSpoon: I have a lot of neutral plates too – but you can easily accessorize them with patterned napkins or colorful serving platters!

    FramedCooks: So do I! I sometimes set the table with mix and match plates in similar tones or patterns.
