Exciting to Me, but not to Anyone Else.


One of my latest "things" has been serving ware. Not that I have much "serving" to do, but I love finding cute ways to present food. So, my latest thing I have wanted to have was one of these plate towers. Yesterday my mom and I ventured out to Tai Pan and found this. I love it. And I am loving the vintage yellow plates! I justified this purchase because I needed it for the shower we are doing for Kimmy. Can't you just imagine these plates full of cream puffs and peanut butter. Oh, so good...
I also need a punch bowl for the shower. Does anyone know where I can get a inexpensive, simple, BIG punch bowl?

I think that is way cute! I have acutally seen people have those for decoration as well. (With fruit and such on it) That is fun! Have fun using it for the shower!

Amy, I can 100% appreciate your new purchase. I LOVE things for the home. Well, I pretty much love anything new. Love the dishes. Seriously, love them. Congrats on your new buy. Can't wait to come to a party and see them in action.

I love those plate racks. My mom has some and they look so cute with the layers of food! Oh, and LOVE Tai Pan ~ every time I am in Utah I almost wish I drove there so I could bring more stuff home!

I am so excited for this shower! It's going to be the best party ever and I'm glad that you can use me as an excuse to buy new things.

I actually bought a huge punch bowl from there too... Well, I don't know if it's really a punch bowl, but that what I use it for. You can use mine if you want.

Love your plate rack and those fabulous plates. So cute. I need to start buying more serving items myself. Everytime I host something, I always do it ghetto style because when I'm shopping, I just don't usually think about purchasing serving dishes. You've inspired me. Wish I had a good tip for your punch bowl . . . good luck. Can't wait to see pics from the shower with all your great new stuff! :)
