If you’re dining outside or planning on going on a picnic, then melamine plates and serving dishes are the sensible option.
They’re durable and practical and won’t suffer too much if accidentally dropped (and we’ve all had one of those dropping moments when eating outside). Plus, there are some really stylish melamine sets available these days.
Take the Quest Tulip Melamine set, for example. Available as a 16-piece tableware set, it comes with four dinner plates, four tea plates, four bowls and four mugs and, rather than the usual round, its styled as a fashionable square design. The set is available from Amazon.
