This is the relatively new "Mambo" pattern available at the Dollar Store. You can purchase plates, bowls, and mugs and sadly no dessert or salad plates...sigh. I love the vivid colors; it is available in another pattern scheme with more yellow! The Dollar Store website says "Nothing says caliente more than the bright blue hues of these dishes...." I really DO love these dishes...and what a bargain! I have used them a ton already...they do just say party! The dishes are great with Latin or maybe even Italian or African food. The plates definitely add color to the table. I will share my Chicken Ole recipe, served on these plates, tomorrow for Foodie Friday.
I am participating at Tablescape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. It is a great place for dishaholics. You can access Tablescape Thursday with the button at the end of my posting.
I like the bright napkins with these plates...they also say let's party!
This is an overhead shot...lucky for me I didn't fall off the chair...highlighting the candles and candlesticks.
I love the clear glassware with the bright plate colors.
