Well, yes there are palm trees in Nevada.....Southern Nevada. Here in Northern Nevada, not so much. Unless you count my small yet growing collection of items with palm trees. I was born in Florida and lived there till I was 9 so was accustomed to palm trees, dogwood trees, fruit trees, pecan trees, etc. I have also had the pleasure of enjoying the beautiful scenery of Oahu. This might contribute to my love of palm trees and tropical decor.
I actually just happened into my palm tree craze. A few years ago I found a plate with palm trees on it at my local Wal-Mart and on a whim decided to buy it. A few months ago I was in a Dollar Tree store in Reno and came across a framed palm tree print and decided to splurge lol. A few months ago I was browsing Amazon.com and came across a set of dinner plates that I loved! White with embossed palm trees. I added them to my wish list and for Mother's Day I received TWO sets of dishes. Exciting!
I made a display on my China cabinet or hutch, whatever you prefer to call it.
Here is a close up of my dishes so you can see the embossed pattern:
They do get used most days. I thought it would be fun to leave them out and make an arrangement with them rather than hide them in a kitchen cabinet.
Do you have a special collection or display? Feel free to comment below and let us know!
