I love Polka Dots, any color!
I like them in Pink...Details here.
I like them in black...
And I really love them in RED!
So tonight I used my red polka dot plates, and bowls.
The bowls are from CTS and were marked down to $1.00
The runners are from Pottery Barn Outlet, an after Christmas bargain a few years ago. The polka dot salad plates are from PB Outlet too.
I love these red square plates with a wavy edge. I got them on line from Pfaltzgraff during one of their Dollar Day Sales, and yes, they were $1.00. I had bought the salad plates during the summer for 1.00, so when I saw the dinner plates, I jumped on it! I ordered 24, as I thought they would be great for a Christmas buffet, and July 4th.
Unfortunately, 4 of them arrived broken, and more unfortunately, Pfaltzgraff didn't reserve any to replace damages. Not good!
A white charger from Noritake, and a small white plate from the Gibson sets so many of us have.
White flatware from Walmart.
A little pail filled with carnations is the centerpiece, perched on a polka dot cake stand from CTS. It had a little missing paint which I fixed. I paid .29 for it!
These polka dot casserole dishes were one of my extreme scores at Cmas Tree Shops. They were in clearance, just put out, 90 % off.
You don't want to know what I paid! You do??? 59 cents, in perfect condition. I got squares too.
The candlesticks are by Villeroy and Boch, stems by Dansk, and bread plate hearts are from Michael's, marked down to .25
I still have another dotty table brewing.
I think I will wait for Spring for that one!
Jacqueline at Purple Chocolate posted the cutest little cupcake baked in a silicone cupcake mold that came with a saucer. They are adorable!
I googled where to get them, but decided it was too pricey for as often as I would use it.
I thought about the cups that came with the Cambridge set, and I figured I would give it a try.
Make your batter, whatever recipe you like, or even a box mix. Pour it IN the greased cup, don't fill too high, it will rise.
Bake it at 350.
After it cooled I piled fresh strawberries on top of the cake.
I whipped some heavy cream, and piped it on top.
DH was very happy to try my experiment!
I think these would be lovely to serve at a luncheon. Or a chicken pot pie baked in them too.
DH said he would eat it again, isn't he a sport? :)
Pick up that spoon and dig in!
Thanks for visiting. If you would be so kind to take the button on my sidebar, for the 4th Annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl, I would appreciate it! ♣
