Sometimes in life the "thrifty" stars align! If you are an avid shopper and deal searcher they align more often, but sometimes it happens when you least expect it.
I was hosting a New Year's Eve party at our home. It was a murder mystery which required a little creativity in finding costumes for me and my hubby. Of course I waited until the last minute, but in my defense I was sick the week after Christmas so really New Year's Day was my only day to shop! I was searching the thrift stores in town, which isn't a hard job since there are only 3, and I found these really cute dessert plates.
I love to use cute dessert dishes, serving pieces, and any other utensil that can make a regular meal seem "fancy", as my daughter would say. They were marked $1.99 for 8, I had to do a double take to make sure it wasn't $1.99 each, sure enough $1.99 for the whole set! So I quickly snatched them up. Once I got to the check out they were having a special that if you would make the noise like a bell you got 50% off of one of your items. Since they were my only item my daughter and I rang like a bell and got all 8 for $1...
Then the obsessive compulsive part of me kicked in and I wondered if the person I asked to bring dessert that night would bring a beautiful dessert that would accent these lovelies, or should I just make an extra one just in case. Well my friend Kim did not disappoint. She brought a delish orange cake with fresh berries and chocolate sauce, not only beautiful but YUMMY. Only problem is we devoured the whole cake before I got a picture, dang.
Anyhoo, today I linked up to Frugalicious Friday over at Finding Fabulous, check out her blog everything she does is beautiful!
