Our newest dinnerware color, Mulberry, is a sophisticated purple that can go from a cheerful day setting to an elegant night with the grace that you would expect from the color of royalty.
To begin our meal with Mulberry we will first layout an elegant dinner. Spinach Salad with red grapes and purple onions is a stunning complement to Mulberry. Serve with crumbled gorgonzola cheese and freshly made gorgonzola dressing on a Large Oval Platter accompanied by Salad Plates for a stunning presentation.
Next up is a simple Pappardelle Carbonara served with a loaf of crust bread. The Fiesta® Rim Soup Bowl is the perfect size for individual portions without being over-served.
Top off the night with a gorgeous Dark Chocolate Bomb Cake. Its elegant, truffle-like shape looks perfectly at home perched atop a Mulberry Dinner Plate. Bake your own, or leave it to your favorite bakery to make as we did.
