What says comfort more than oversized pasta bowls hosting big servings of food made with love. Check out the special, handmade selections, and durable dishes we found.

Tulips, durable dishes, and one-of-a-kind artisanal, oversized pasta bowls do the work for you. I chose to include these ideas as part of a party scenario focused on comfort and a pasta bar. The bowls and dishes would sure add to the relaxed qualities.

[1] Animated Flora Tulips seem to have a life of their own, leaning this way and that. Just let them do their thing, and add to the lazy effect of the comfort party. No matter what color you get, they will create their own special ambiance, changing positions as the night goes on, you won’t have to do a thing.
