Anyone else ready to upgrade their mealtime with kitchenware? After a year of eating every meal at home, the contents of my kitchen cabinets remind of April and Andy eating chili off a frisbee in Parks and Rec. Not a good look, as much as I stan that couple. And while my kitchenware hasn’t reached quite that low point, things aren’t much better in my fine dining department.
So while it’s the season of giving, I’m also treating myself to a nicer dining experience with this lovely tableware, flatware, and linens. Here’s to the finer things! Like not drinking coffee out of a 2004 PTA mug.

To me there’s something so luxurious about a proper pasta bowl, like this one from Sunnys Shop LA, that’s somewhere in between a cereal bowl and a regular plate. I love making curries and stews this time of year, and I’m thinking this is the perfect size and shape for that, too.
With so many of us working from home now, finding the right coffee mug is essential. I’m loving this handmade coffee lover’s mug from Julia E Dean on Etsy. She lets you choose between 12 and 16 ounces (or, as I call it, parent-of-small-children size).
This stunningly simple Jacqueline serving platter from Anthropologie has me itching to plan my next dinner party. Save it for a special main dish or leave it out on the table with a fruit arrangement to encourage healthy snacking while also beautifying your kitchen.
One easy way to upgrade your everyday eating experience is to switch to linen napkins. These sets from Meetra Linens on Etsy come in an array of dreamy earth tones and are more eco-friendly than crumpled paper towels any day.
It’s all about the woven fibers these days, so these boho natural placemats of course jumped out at me. Indie Art Home’s sisal placemats add a lot of texture and earthiness while still being neutral enough to go with any style of tablescape.
I’m not sure exactly why the pandemic decimated my house’s spoon count, but however it happened, we are low on these cereal essentials. Of course this gorgeous Fantasia flatware set from West Elm is making me want to replace my whole flatware collection. Can you blame me?
I’m normally a little wary of using florals in the kitchen since they can look dated, but this sophisticated Lithuanian flower print tablecloth is far from it. A modern and watercolor-ish floral print? I’ll take it. Find this one at Anthropologie.
As a household with two kids under five, our cereal bowl collection is looking . . . eclectic. And so I was instantly drawn to these lovely, stackable soup and side bowls from Our Place. I love the delicate speckle pattern on this cream-colored set, but the char color is also dreamy.
I lost count of how many drinking glasses we broke over the last couple of years, which is why I am coveting this simple bodega mixed drink set from Crate and Barrel. It’s got the perfect size for every beverage and occasion.
Who has made the switch to Turkish kitchen towels? A friend showed me her beach towel version of this lightweight, airy fabric last summer, and I am fully converted. This Turkish kitchen towel set at Kalkedon Towels looks like the perfect jumping off point for.
