Eating Pasta in a Blue and White Bowl


Certain things catch my eye as did the beautiful blue and white bowl on the cover of Bon Appetit magazine, (February 2013). In the picture on the left, you will see my white pasta bowls that I always use. On the right, you see the blue and white platter that I used for the pasta, and I thought it was a nice change. 

Here's a close up of the blue and white platter. I would love enough blue and white bowls to serve pasta to my family. I saw several beautiful bowls in the antique stores this weekend.


This next picture was taken this weekend in Lake Placid, and the table was set up in one of the stores we went to. I  love the placemats, napkins and napkin rings, but do I also need those beautiful plates and cups?   
Maybe I should get the table and chairs also? And the beautiful tureen?  


I hope I have inspired you to grab your pretty blue bowls and use them for something as simple as pasta. 
For menu planning, I am joining Foodie Friday.

  1. Well, as an artist I learned early on that green is nature's neutral, so theoretically anything you put with it will look nice, especially if it's a yellow green.

    I think your white plates would be pretty, and then put something colorful on top...anything would look nice. Try it!

  2. Aw...look how pretty and stylish you look standing there in the store! Great picture! I love the tablescape there, too! Those are beautiful dishes, and the stylist did a fabulous job! Go on and buy all of them...you know you want to! :-) :-) :-) I'm a fan of blue & white, too, but I don't think I've ever served pasta on any of my blue & white dishes. I guess it would make sense to do so, though, since the colors of either a red or white sauce would look pretty on them!

  3. I want a serving of that wonderful looking pasta right now, Debbie!! Is that your famous Chicken Riggies??? The pasta does look great in the blue and white bowl. I love the color of the placemats and napkins. If I had more of JB Friendly Village, it would look beautiful on that color. It looks chartreuse from the picture. I think blue and white would look pretty, too. Have a wonderful day!

  5. Such a beautiful setting. The chairs are lovely. I love the color combination.
    The pasta sounds wonderful right about now. The blue and white bowl is so pretty. Another item to start collecting....Sure, buy the chairs too, while you are at it.

  7. The pasta looks wonderful on the blue and white platter. You inspire me to make pasta and serve it in blue and white.

  8. Two great inspiration photos. I adore the pasta on the blue and white. Who would think. They always say, white, white, white and I love the pop of color. You look great standing by that table and oh, those chairs! Yes, you need the whole thing! Too beautiful.

  9. Hi Debbie, I saw that magazine in the store and left it there for fear it would make me eat even more pasta! I think blue and white looks great with everything. I even saw a Thanksgiving table set with blue and white transferware, and it was gorgeous! So YES! Buy it when you see it!! And speaking of buying, go for it with those CHAIRS too!!! And the other goodies! How about that floor lamp next to you with the birch bark shade! Love it. One of my favorite stores ever was called The Adirondack Store. There were only two--one here in New Canaan and one in Lake Placid. This one closed, but I am wondering if the store you picture could be it? It had items exactly like those you are showing, including those dishes! I have so many things in my house from that store, and I miss it! Linda
