While the lightweight design of these bowls may not be the best choice for fine dining restaurants, they can still come in handy for high-end occasions. Resorts, spas and hotels can benefit from the warm look of the bowls coupled with their resistance to breakage because many outdoor events prohibit the use of breakable china and glassware. These bowls also fit in perfectly at luaus, where a casual atmosphere and high-energy elegance collide perfectly. If you are considering purchasing these bowls for one occasion but unsure how often you will be able to use them, think about other potential applications. They work great for picnics, garden parties and casual indoor buffets as well.
