The other day I went into Walmart to get some strawberries.
And somewhere along the way I got distracted.
Has that ever happened to you?
You are just stopping by the store for a moment. You’re going to buy ice or hand soap or paper towels or ham or mascara.
You find yourself in the middle of aisle 11 with a cart full of stuff…
….and left without even getting what you came for?
Please come sit by me.
That is my life.
I’m so easily distracted by the treasure hunt up and down the aisles (and don’t even get me started on the finds on the end caps) and before I know it my cart is full.
When I turned my shopping cart toward the strawberries and something caught my eye with a little pattern and summer sunshine and my heart did a double flip and a few cartwheels…
….when I discovered these.
Aren’t they beautimous?
That’s what the twins used to say when they were little and they thought something was the most beautiful thing in the world.
These blue and white plates come in a set of four and each plate has a completely different pattern.
And wait until you see the price. I couldn’t believe it. They look super similar a set of plates that I have wanted to order forever from a higher-end retailer that are so much more expensive.
Just when I thought I couldn’t get any more distracted? Aisle 7 I’m looking at you?
I found the CUTEST smaller plates that were totally different patterns that layered perfectly with these larger plates.
Here’s the set of patterns with the smaller plates.
Look at the reverse little dots on the plates with the plus signs. And the other plates? See how they are X’s and O’s? Do you know how many times I have walked into a store wishing I could find blue and white plates with different patterns I could mix and match?
I so wish you could have been there—shopping with me in aisle 4.
I needed someone to share in the plate joy I experienced at that exact moment.
They are PERFECT for summer and when I mixed them and matched them?
They looked like this.
The dining room looks like this.
And the best part?
All these finds are SO AFFORDABLE.
The bowls have a rim around the bottom that allow them to stack perfectly in the cabinets.
They are perfect for parties or for a coffee station or on a dessert tray when you have guests.
The sugar even comes with the cutest little spoon.
One of my favorite finds?
This butter dish. It comes with a wooden top and keeps butter soft.
You can see it here.
I put together all the finds and a few more blue and white summer accessories for the table here:
- set of four large plates
- set of four small plates
- round hyacinth placemats
- gold flatware set
- blue and white bowls
- butter dish
- sugar and creamer set
- patterned blue bowl
- set of blue and white polka-dotted dishes
- set of white dishes
- set of white trays
- white pitcher
I’m so happy I got distracted.
I’m so happy this set of blue and white cuties caught my eye.
I did find the strawberries and brought them home.
And the only thing better than finding amazing fresh fruit for summer?
Having the perfect dish to serve them in. 🙂
