Soup Passion Soup Bowls

I have been brainstorming some unique dinner buffet displays for my upcoming Fall and Holiday soirees for a while now, so when I was introduced to Villeroy & Boch’s Soup Passion Collection I knew I had found the perfect concept! Who doesn’t love a warm soup in the Fall? And with a few special touches, like unique bowls and specialty noodles, I knew the wow factor would be on point! Villeroy & Boch’s soup collection in particular, is incredibly elegant and sleek {I just love the white porcelain!}, while the functionality is totally nouveau! Take my favorite item, the small soup passion bowl which is actually two small bowls connected at the center, allowing you to serve a bowl of soup on one side and then place crackers or bread for dipping on thVilleroy & Boch Soup Passione other! Read on for how I styled my bar as well as my soup go-to’s this season!

To create my soup bar display, I lined my collection of bowls down my buffet table in my dining room. To create a Fall vibe I suspended an autumn wreath over my mirror, placed two large white faux pumpkins on one end of the buffet, and a long glass vase full of pumpkins and pinecones on the other end. I swapped classic white candles for ones with a texture of natural birch. And for flowers I filled a Villeroy & Boch white Numa vase with Kale Brassica!

For my soups, I have two new recipes I need to share. The first is a healthy butternut squash soup from my friend BeWellwithArielle.com – a tad sweet because of the syrup and almond milk rather than cream! Find the recipe on this health guru’s website here. I placed this soup in asia bowls which come with a small tray that I filled with crackers and sprigs of rosemary for color! Then my classic vegetable soup was a hit because I served it with festive Fall Leaf noodles; a crowd pleaser for adults and kids! {Note: these noodles are just as great with pasta sauce!} The Villeroy & Boch tureen, which holds up to four bowls of soup and has a lid, is the perfect place to store soup while guests decide which route to choose!

I hope this inspires a new selection of foods and tools to utilize at your next dinner party.
