The Dish on Corelle Dishes


Welcome to my monthly blog. My name is Penny and I am a merchandiser, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt and great aunt. Needless to say I wear many hats. I have found that many women entertain based on how they saw their mom doing it while growing up. Truth be told, my mom had many sets of dishes and more than one set came from collecting S&H green stamps. I wanted to go another route.

I have had the same dishes for 20 years (having just celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary in Las Vegas – go Elvis) so it seemed like a good time to start over with some new dishes. My mom always told me you really need to have another wedding shower after you are married 10 years or 20 years and she was totally right. The towels and sheets are threadbare, and nothing seems to match like it did back then. So I thought I would take this opportunity and buy myself some new dishes.

Now comes the decision. Livingware by Corelle has a lot of choices.. A LOT! I am not an overly "girly girl" so it needed to be something modern and not flowery. Even with that criteria there was a lot to choose from. At the end of the day, I finally went with Corelle Livingware Urban Red – plus I just love the name. The cereal bowls are a nice size and that is really important in my house – my 15 yr old son eats a lot of cereal – and everything else for that matter. I love that the bowls have a little personality to them and are not just white.

I think they are cool and I am going to use them next time I have friends over. They hardly take up any room in the cabinet which is awesome because my current stoneware takes up a ton! This was fun! Next month I think I need to buy some new storage ware. So stay tuned.
