White plates have always been the default setting of dinnerware. You’ll find them on most restaurant tables; they’re an integral part of first-apartment kits; and a stack of them probably sits in your kitchen cabinets as you read this. But wouldn’t a crunchy, sunset-hued citrus salad look particularly refreshing served on a pink backdrop? Wouldn’t a weeknight pesto pasta pop against a moss green plate?
It’s time to give your meals a stage worthy of their bold flavors. Try plating your famous spaghetti Bolognese on an equally satisfying fire truck–red dish. Give your blueberry pie a colorful lift on complementary sky blue ceramic. Whatever your signature creations, we have 28 dinnerware ideas at the ready to make them stand out.
