Happy Dishes

A few weeks ago I was in CVS of all places (a chain drug store) when I noticed some dishes on sale. There were assorted dishes, some melamine and some pottery, but all with the same design and they looked like the happiest dishes I had ever seen. It looked like the perfect dishes for an ice cream party with my granddaughters (aka Jojo's joys) and I just couldn't resist the prices. The pottery dishes were on sale for ridiculously low prices plus I had a coupon for $5 off the entire purchase. By the time I got out the door, I paid $15 for 6 bowls and 6 plates along with a dozen matching paper napkins. Notice the ruffled edges of the plates. They're just too cute!

A couple of days later I was in Hancock's Fabrics when I noticed a fabric that matched the adorable CVS dishes. I bought fabric to make matching cloth napkins and I am still asking myself . . . what are the chances?

I am so excited about having an ice cream party for the grandgirls!!!


  1. Wonderful dots, JoJo.
    Love your dishes. Perfect for grandchildren.

  2. Really nice pottery in those joyful colours, interesting shapes, and with the dots! The green in the first picture is very attractive, I love it!
    Have a lovely Whitsun-day!
    Love, Marjolijn

  3. These are just adorable. I can see why you envisioned them on your table...ready for ice cream! Ya know, two years ago I bought some melamine dishes at CVS--and people still ask me where I bought them when I use them! Napkins are super easy...If you use a machine...I can send you a great link and give you some pointers to make it even easier...Or you could send me the fabric and I'll make them for you!! (I'm not kidding!) But I bet you would have fun making them!

  4. How lucky that you found just the perfect material to match the cute little polka dot dishes. There's nothing better than ice cream on a summer day. Thanks for sharing.

  5. So adorable! I have not seen those plates at my local CVS but it's possible they sold out quickly.
