Festive! Fun bowls and serving platters from Tradewinds, modern with a twist of whimsy. It's hard to envision summer, but these bright and cheery platters will inspire images of warm summer nights spent sipping a raspberry margarita, afterdark madrid filling the air, entertaining friends with your latest tapas recipe. Fiesta!

I love the colors and textures of these bright pieces; but the mixed black ones are nice too. They're quite classic meets whimsical charm - they remind me of a naughty secretary or something. When you're not entertaining, you can display them - double duty!

The platters, not the secretary.
