My anniversary present…

April 6, 2011
Yesterday was our 14 year wedding anniversary!  It doesn’t feel like we have been married for that long. I still feel like Im 23 years old.  Anyways, my mother-n-law is visiting for the week and purchased 2 sets of these dishes for our anniversary. She got them from Walmart of all places!  They look very similar to the Emma Pottery Barn dinnereware set.

Pottery Barn Emma Set on sale for $149/set of 4.

My Walmart dinnerware ~ $39.95/set of 4

Happy Anniversary sweetie!

    Happy Anniversary! Here’s to 14 more wonderful years! Love the dishes, too…I am a total dish nut…they are kind of like shoes, I don’t think I could have too many!

    Happy Anniversary!! Gosh, I’ve had one year of marriage down, but am so excited to read 14 years… 24 years, 34 years, 44 years… Congrats for staying strong and trucking on 🙂 Till death do we part!

    You’ll love white dishes…crisp and clean and they go with everything. Congratulations! Marriages should be celebrated!

    Happy Anniversary Toni! What a great find, they look almost identical to the PB ones.

    I love your style, and I only wish they had that dish set a few years ago. I also fell for the Emma Pottery Barn style, but at that price, I searched and found the only one out there at the time that was more affordable was the Crate & Barrel Staccato. I love my dishes, but that Walmart price cannot be beat. How thoughtful of your mother in-law to get these for you. 🙂

  7. Happy Anniversary! And those plates are so pretty! 🙂

    I finally bought a similar set at JCPenney. My brown Pfz Village dishes just didn’t cut it at Easter dinner. I love the PB ones, too, BUT!!! I dare anyone to flip my dishes over at dinner to check labels…no more invites for you, lady- lol! Great MIL you have… Enjoy!

    Thanks ladies! My friend just told me today that Walmart is clearancing out these dishes. So if you want them, you might want to get your hands on some now, before they are gone. They are such a great deal and the clearance price is $30 for a set of 4.

    Oh my! I might have to get over to Wal-Mart pronto – those are so sweet and so like the Emma dishes. Thank you for the great tip! (And Happy Anniversary!)

    Those are great. We recieved 12 place settings of the PB ones for our wedding from various friends/family. I put one mug in the dishwasher and it chipped all over the rim! They claim to be dishwasher safe, but they aren’t so we returned them all. Yours are a great alternative!

    Happy Anniversary! Man I ordered my Shaklee too soon! I wasn’t far away from having the $30!

    I LOVE those dishes and did my own post about trying to find the Emma “substitutes” on my blog
    I finally got an amazing deal on some at JCP and i love them, people always just assume they are from PB.

  17. Dawn says:

    Happy Anniversary!!! I have those dishes too! My mom got them for me for Christmas. We’re having trouble finding more though but I found your post through 320 Sycamore and now see I can get them online! Yeah! Off to order another set 🙂 Enjoy them!
