It has been a delight to see so many of the things I grew up loving brought back into the limelight, thanks in large part to the Grandmillennial movement. Recently, I have noticed a classic pattern that I had not seen in years beginning to pop up in fresh and chic new ways… Desert Rose by Franciscan. The Desert Rose pattern was first manufactured in the early 1940s, and it is the best-selling American dinnerware pattern in history. Chances are someone in your family had this lovely pattern at one point or another. My Nana and Mother both have had this pattern, and it brings back such fond memories. Originally produced in California, you can learn more about how the dishes and production location have changed over time here, and this website will help you identify the back-stamp if you are interested in beginning a collection.
Today we will enjoy some lovely tablescapes featuring Desert Rose. If you have this pattern, we would love to see how you use it, please tag #desertrosechallenge on Instagram… This hashtag was created by @simplysoutherncottage, a brilliant idea!
Prices on Desert Rose are currently quite low, so now is the time to scoop up some of this pretty earthenware. With Easter and Mother’s Day just around the corner, it is perfect for the spring and summer months!
