I came across this article featuring new Corelle dinnerware available April 19, 2011. I was amused because I had forgotten all about Corelle dinnerware. Growing up we had Corelle dishes, along with some matching Pyrex and Corningware pieces! Back in the day we had the hottest trend in the latest look, and when that started to get tired, my Mom upgraded to just plain white, but still Corelle! We definitely had other dinnerware, but our everyday was this.
So to have a little fun, I decided to look up the pattern and find some images to share with you of the dinnerware I grew up with! Maybe some of you will remember it, and maybe some of your parents still have a few pieces. I know my Dad still has the oval Corningware casserole dish I remember so clearly. And I also know it’s one of those pieces that is just the right size that works for so many things…
Spring Blossom. White with green flowers. Now… vintage!
Does this look familiar to any of you?
Here we have a close-up of the pattern…
Dinner plates, salad/luncheon plates, and bowls.
Did you know that Corelle is:
- Dishwasher and oven safe
- Break-, chip-, and fade-resistant under normal use
- Lightweight, yet durable
- Easy to clean
- Affordable, yet attractive At the same time,
What do you think so far?
Here we have the classic teacups and saucers.
If you look carefully you’ll notice that the teacup handles are open at the bottom. This distinct design was very clever because you can stack the teacups, one inside of the other. What a great way to maximize your cupboard space!
This is the matching platter to the Spring Blossom dinnerware.
I love the shape of it. Can’t you just imagine a Sunday roast beef dinner coming up?
And speaking of roast beef dinner…
Isn’t this butter tub awesome? I think the shape of it is so much fun… charming with lots of personality!
I mentioned matching Pyrex and Corningware pieces to the Corelle dinnerware pattern.
This creamer, sugar bowl, and butter dish are just one example of a Pyrex match.
This set of coffee mugs is another.
I remember the coffee mugs very well. My parents used these all the time!
And last but not least, the matching Pyrex casserole bowls and mixing bowls.
I couldn’t find a photo of the oval casserole bowl that my Dad still has, and I should have thought to take my own, but I didn’t. It’s like the green bowls on the left with white flowers, except that it is oval. It also has a lid, which is a great feature of the bowl, and the lid is white with green flowers.
So that’s a little walk down memory lane with me, and a glimpse into what our dinnerware was like, probably through the 70′s as I was growing up. Did you grow up with Corelle, or do you own any now? How about the matching Pyrex and Corningware bowls?
