Stylish Bowls for Soup

It really doesn't matter how you 'ladle up' your bowl of soup. You can eat it out of an old coffee mug or even a paper cup and your soup will still taste delicious - but sometimes it's nice to have a versatile and cool-looking bowl that is a great for entertaining or to step up the decor in your kitchen. From kid-friendly bowls to those suited for more elegant affairs, I've found five interesting soup bowls to mix up your collection.

The Toddler-Friendly Boon Catch Bowl
1. Boon Catch Bowl - Featuring a built-in spill catcher and suction cup, the Boon Catch Bowl is designed for messy Toddler-eating that works by keeping the bowl firmly planted in one place. I love that it is free of BPA, PVC and Phthalates and soft so you don't have to worry if it (or your toddler's soup) ends up on the floor.

Soup Bowls by Ayda Anlagan
2. Pretty Soup Bowls - Created by Ayda Anlagan, a London-based industrial designer, these unique artistic bowls were created to illustrate the issue of food wastage in the domestic environment that includes a fishing scene, a child playing, and various quotes. I love their chic and modern appeal that would be great for a fun dinner party.

Kai Serving Bowls from Crate & Barrel

3. White Kai Noodle/Soup Bowl- As part of the Kai Serving Bowl Series, this modern Asian soup bowl includes two cutout handles for a bamboo chopstick. These porcelain white bowls are also  dishwasher-, microwave- and oven-safe.

The Husque Bowl
4. Husque Bowl - Designed by Marc Harrison, the Husque Bowl is made in Australia from macadamia nuts shells whose shape is also inspired by the same nut. The bowl also has a clean finish that is stained with a yellow, white, or black resin.

Farmhouse Double-Handled Bowls by Williams-Sonoma

 5. Farmhouse Double-Handled Bowls - Created by Williams-Sonoma, these double-handled rustic bowls are sized to serve hearty portions of soups, chowders and chili. Since they are made out heat-resistant stoneware, the bowls can also be used for baking casseroles, pot pies and individual portions of macaroni and cheese. The set of four is also microwavable and dishwasher safe.


  1. Wow - some of these are really gorgeous. Wish I had more storage space!

  2. I know! NYC living makes it tough to have a lot of cute things.
