My mom was helping me put my dishes away..and said, "I think you might wanna buy a new set of dishes"...not one of my plates really matched.
All my plates were pretty random: some were "hand-me-downs" from my mom, a few I found at Ross or Marshall's, and even an incomplete set of cool vintage looking dishes I got at a thrift store years and years ago. But they weren't mix matched in a cool Anthropolgie kind of way, they were mixed matched in a "are you modern, Asian inspired, shabby chic, 60's vintage, country kitchen, or animal print", kind of "style-confused" way.
THE HUNT FOR NEW DISHES:
The place of choice to hunt: Marshall's
(if you don't know what Marshall's is- it's one of my favorite stores where you can find cool stuff from fancy department stores or designers for super cheap!)
AND, THE BEST PART OF ALL....
as you can see they were $2 a plate!!!
That is almost as awesome as Dollar Store prices.
We used them at our Saturday dinner my mom made, Baked Rigatoni with Mozzarella, Bacon, Crispy Sage and Parmesan Breadcrumb Topping - yumtastic!
Alani said she loved eating off of our new fancy plates. And I must say, it was like make-up for our food...it just made it look a little extra special!
huge love and and happy new plates, your kandee
