When I first came to college, we used to have soup parties, where a bunch of people brought soup and some bowls, and we would vote on our favorites. I think this little set would be perfect for that, or any sort of soup or chili-based entertaining. I love how the bowls are contained in the pot, to keep things out of the way. I also love how the polka dot design goes together by being opposite. It's an adorable set for when fall comes. 50.00 for a pot and 6 bowls at Kymm in NYC.
