Anyone searching for a practically indestructible dinnerware material should think about purchasing melamine dishes. Used traditionally in outdoor plates, melamine is lightweight, easy to carry, and ideal for travel or picnics. This amazing material has become so appreciated in recent years that it is being used for indoor dining and cooking as well.
Fiesta offers sets of melamine chargers, which are wonderful solutions to add color to an otherwise lacking tablescape. Use them underneath dinner plates and bowls for a punch of color and to catch any spills. For serving, try a lightweight handled tray for both indoor and outdoor events. Convenient cutouts allow you to get a grip on your serving platter, while the lightweight design means that you won’t struggle as much to get the food out to guests.
Martha Stewart and Jonathan Adler each offer their own melamine dishes and mixing bowls. Try a set of six mixing bowls, each a different color, and enjoy the fact that your melamine bowls are crack- and chip-resistant as well as dishwasher safe. Serve up a refreshing summer salad with a melamine salad bowl and matching serving utensils. The rich hues and patterns of your serveware become more apparent by a material that really sets off color, not to mention the fact that these dishes are easy for even a child to handle, so they’re convenient for your entire family.
Other melamine dinnerware and serveware sets include playful baby dishes, decorative trays, picnic basket sets and storage bowls. To make your own picnic set, find the dinnerware collection you most adore and choose an old-fashioned wicker picnic basket. You can create an outdoor experience your family or guests won’t soon forget. No other material is as child-friendly or fun as melamine.
