Thanks for sharing Amy ~ what a great tradition! And I bet the other grandparents were not to far away even though I know it doesn't feel that way! My Mom has those same dishes... I am guessing one day they will end up with me... seeing them stirred something within me.

You've created great memories for you kids and your parents!


I'm sorry, Amy : ( I don't have any grandparents left as of this year, and it is hard. Our girls are so lucky to have all four of theirs (I never had a full set in my lifetime) but we don't get to see them all together very often.

Those dishes are Franciscan Desert Rose, and my mom inherited a set of them when either her mom or aunt died, I can't remember who they passed from. I love them.


I recognize those dishes, as well. I believe they belonged to my paternal grandmother. I wonder who got them at her death? I got a set, but they were fairly plain.


Wow, the dishes are famous! My mom's first china was Franciscan Desert Rose with many other pieces. I like the Grandparent Party tradition.
