Snack Plate

One of my next Fiestaware® pieces I'd love to have is this "snack plate." I've only been able to find it on Ebay (it's not on their website). I just picture it with lightly toasted bagel chips, and a lovely goat-cheese/sun-dried pesto infused dip in the little cup. Anybody have one?

Coffee Cup Tray

My husband and I were perusing Crate & Barrel today and saw this super cute "Pick Me Up Mugs with Tray." What a great idea! I would love to have something like this in Fiestaware. I think it would be just the thing for 1960's dinner parties!
Does anyone know if Fiesta ever made anything like this?

Jumbo Bowls

My “jumbo” bowls came in the other day and we just picked them up from a wonderful homewares store here in town. I’m new to Fiestaware; my husband and I registered for the cobalt and lemongrass 4-piece sets for our wedding last year and we love them! With that said, the “medium” bowls that come in 4-piece sets are a little awkward for some dishes. For instance, I’ve found soups looks so much better in the “jumbo” bowls. Plus I always put too many scoops of ice cream in a “medium” bowl” (not that that’s a bad thing). The “jumbo” bowls are the perfect size for these dishes!
Thank you, Katie for the belated wedding gift!
What about you? Do you have any “jumbo” bowls? What’s your favorite thing to use them for?
