Freakin’ Macys. They got me with their Memorial Day Sale. And of course, what did I buy? More Espana dishes.
I LOVE these platters and bowl. Here are a few more shots of each piece.
This is a serving platter with handles. You could easily fit a whole roast with potatoes on this one.
This platter is slightly smaller than the one above with handles, but still very good sized.
I love the design and scalloped edge on the side of this bowl. The sales girl was telling me it’s a pasta bowl but I could see it being used for salads and things like that too.
So yeah, Macys got me again with a sale. But I did need serving platters and bowls so it was justified. (Or so I keep telling myself! heh)
I do like more formal china service sets, but I keep coming back to the brightly colored and designed Espana set. I think it appeals to me because they are so pretty and when I cook, it’s with love, so these offset my dishes perfectly.
With love and a lighter wallet,
This is my new favorite dish.
I saw something similar in Mexico this summer and fell in love with the vibrant colors and designs. Most of the pieces I saw were for wall decorations and I wanted something I could use as serving dishes.
Luckily for me, Macy’s was having a sale and these “Espana” dishes happened to be on the list. They are hand painted and hand crafted. Oh and dishwasher safe too!
I also got this cute little au gratin dish.
Even the side of the dish is cute too.
The square dish is actually a salad plate and the au gratin dish is a little small. As I was picking these out, my mom said “I hope your guests aren’t hungry when they come over, because those dishes are small!” I laughed. These dishes are more for me anyway. Hmph.
How about you all out there? Any style of china you really love?
