Disposable plates are not welcome in my home. I kick myself every time I eat out and forget to use my own container, but behind my front door? The only disposable plates you’ll find are the Dora the Explorer paper plates left over from my daughter’s 2nd birthday party more than 2 years ago. They still haven’t been used, and it’s unlikely they ever will be. I prefer to use actual plates, most of which are ceramic. So when I find beautiful, handmade plates that will stand out on my dinner table, I take notice. Make them blue and sell them for 50% off, and it’s all I can do to stop myself from whipping out the debit card.
Eden Home is offering two separate dinnerware collections from Terrafirma at 50% for a majority of the pieces. Want to know how much that could save you? Well, the dinner plates are down to $21.50 from $43, and the mugs are now $20 instead of $40. Not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but consider the fact that you’ll be able to use them forever (or at least until you break them), and the prices don’t seem so high any more. Some of the larger serving pieces aren’t on sale, but unless you entertain regularly (we don’t), you likely will not need them.
As much as I love the Chestnut collection with it’s rich browns and Earthy patterns, I have to say the light blue Celadon collection, while a little frilly, is more my speed. Matter of fact, I’d love to mix and match pieces from both collections. Which is the whole point of being able to buy each piece separately.
