I love these plates! They have just enough color to be fun, and the shape is great. Note that there is a slight bowl-like curve to the plates, which helps prevent spills with things like sauces. I use these plates, the Summer Sun fruit bowls, and the Summer Sun mugs to augment the Red Vanilla Extreme White dinnerware. Everyone raves about my Red Vanilla dishes and asks where to get them. Great price here on Overstock, and each order arrived in record time. I have been looking for years, and I finally found dishes that thrill me.
