Nanna Design, Bloomingville Mini
We finally graduated from our collection of super cute vintage plastic plates + bowels and we are ready to use porcelain plates! I wanted to get something that would appeal to grade-school age kids, but can be used into the teen years. And I wanted to avoid cartoons and Disney Princesses etc.
We have used a combo of single vintage plates in coordinating colors, and discovered Jim Ward’s (JimBobArt) amazing line of plates with humorous and illustrative style plates, RiceDK and so many great sets, enjoy the beautiful selection!

The Storybook Rabbit Shop
The Storybook Rabbit Shop on Etsy has great paintings on vintage dishes, like this wonderful rabbit plate above, and while they run high in terms of pricing, they are just so charming, and make amazing gifts! And the Australian based artisan makes custom orders!
If you chose vintage places I suggest hand washing so the finish does not come off and expose your kids to any toxic paint etc. Do not use cracked plates, and feel free to combine vintage pieces with usually pricey sale items single pieces from department stores, thrift or outlets.
I recently curated an amazing collection of animal themed plates for one little boy, each sources sourced from thrift stores or sales at retailers (where only odd numbers of plates are on sale) so this approach can be used for any taste.
