White Dishes

I'm a little bit obsessed with white dishes. I rarely buy any other color. I think other colors and prints are fun and even sometimes beautiful, but to me, food looks better on nothing other than plain white.


The white plate makes the food the starring attraction. It doesn't compete. And while the food above is rather fancy, a white dish also makes even a run of the mill snow day banana bread look yummier.

That's my daughter's hand showcasing the bread she helped make. :)

I think food served on a colored plate looks festive, casual and picnic-like. Food served on white plates looks crisp and classic.  It's the difference a casual barbecue...

...and an elegant buffet.

(I'd eat either one, though. Let's not get crazy.)
