Welcome to Meeting 2 of the the Dish Dames, the sisterhood of dish lovers.
Thank you again to all those who linked up or left comments, I appreciate it!
****Oh, please remember the Tartan Party , April 1st, at Sarah's and Babs' place. See the sidebar for details!***
A bunch of sunny yellow daffodils from my yard in a milk bottle tied with a polka dot grosgrain bow is the centerpiece.
A plastic tray from the Le $ Tree is the charger over a fabric cloth made from cotton fabric from Portugal, via the Duralee Outlet, it was $1.
I thought about the purple , but went with the green to pick up the lime green plate from Cmas Tree Shop clearance, .75 less 20 %. They will be used at a later date for a shower, and I have all those dotted serving dishes I got last summer for .39, remember?
Hot pink napkins with a ring made from an egg from CTS, 2/$1. The napkins have been around for a long time!
Hot pink flatware from Bealls, on sale. Egg ramekins from Target.
Egg shaped salt and peppers from CTS, as well as the little egg place card holders.
Fits in well with the new paint color, BM Hawthorne Yellow.
That's my little Brunch table for this week, can't wait to see what hopped on to your table, as long as it isn't your cat! :)
I promised I would show you the dishes I got while shopping with Alma, The Tablescaper, last Fri.
They are by
The charger is white with a beige tint edge, a swirl of green, white in the middle and a few purple flowers.
They didn't have the dinner plate, just the salad, so I am experimenting with plates I have to see what will work.
I am thinking maybe the lime plate on the left, or maybe a purple or even white?
I just plopped it on top of the cloth I used for tonight's table to take the pic. I am thinking a pale lavender cloth or even ecru?1.00 for
What do you think?
I have the perfect purple napkin ring for them.
The lime plate Alma got for me in the Reading Dish Outlet for .98, and it is really nice, thin, not like my other lime dishes.
Oh, the Hutschenreuther , were buy one get one free, so 2.50 for the charger and $1 for the salad. The pic doesn't do it justice, it was rainy today, and the light was poor.
I do love cream soup bowls, and I was very happy when I saw these...
The above have a gold emblem and taupey line.
Above, plain white with a raised design. Both by Hutschenreuther.
Some people like shoes and pocketbooks, I like dishes!
They were 1.00 each! Perfect size for soups, and I do usually serve soup at dinner parties.
So that's the let's dish for this week! Look forward to hearing your thoughts, and seeing your collections or settings!
APRIL 18 THROW DOWN...THE GOOD EARTH IS THE THEME. BIRDS, BEES, FLOWERS, WORMS,LOL, ANYTHING ASSOCIATED WITH MOTHER EARTH!
My friend, Alma, thinks I should split my post, save the food for a separate one? I have always done both together, something for everyone. What do you think?
Do you mind the food being with the dishes? I know I always want to take part in Gollum's Foodie Friday, and this way I am sure to do it!
BTW, Gollum's sequel to Gone with a Handsomer Man will be out the beginning of April! I am rereading it so I can jump right into the new one, A Teeny Bit of Trouble.
I am running this again, as I think it would be perfect for Easter.
Ricotta Cupcakes with Blueberry Sauce. Recipe for both can be found HERE.
