Accent Your Dining Table With Stylish Serving Bowls

Impart style to your table with serving bowls from Williams Sonoma. The selection contains an array of choices from top brands like Le Creuset and Pillivuyt, so you can find bowls to suit your preferences. These bowls aren't just stylish but functional as well, making them a must-have for every home.

What Are Serving Bowls?

Here are some of the basics you should know when shopping for these bowls:

  • This type of bowl is larger than a regular bowl and usually holds at least four servings of food, if not more. They're usually crafted from durable, heat-resistant materials such as ceramic and stoneware.
  • Large bowls are important because they let you serve food at the table, instead of requiring guests to go to the kitchen. You'll also need utensils for serving purposes, such as large spoons, ladles and tongs.
  • These bowls are great for serving pasta, soup and salad. They can also be used to serve side dishes like mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables.
  • You can also use large bowls for serving dessert. Pudding and trifles are two examples of desserts that are especially well-suited to these bowls.
  • The vast majority of these oversized bows are microwave-safe and dishwasher-safe, so reheating food and cleaning up is convenient.

Ways to Decorate With Serving Bowls

Large bowls can be used for serving food and making your home look more sophisticated. Here are some decorating ideas to consider:

  • Use a serving bowl to display fruit. This is a useful way to hold and serve produce, such as apples, bananas and oranges and it also makes a great centerpiece.
  • These bowls can also be used to hold dried potpourri. If you're the DIY-type, it's easy to make your own by drying flower petals and adding a few drops of fragrance oil to boost the scent.
  • You don't even have to fill the bowls with anything to make them decorative. The selection at Williams Sonoma contains bowls in solid colors and patterns that serve as accent pieces for the table or even a shelf.

Salad Bowls Make a Good Gift

If you're shopping for someone who loves making nutritious lunches and dinners, salad bowls are a great gift idea. You might also want to pick up a bowl set, so that your salad bowls come in a matching material and color. Williams Sonoma has salad bowls that contain everything you need to serve and enjoy your go-to salad recipe.
