When I started to look around for melamine inspiration and ideas I had no idea I would find so many different, fun, contemporary patterns out there. No idea at all. I started to look on Pinterest and was amazed at the variety; then I went to specific retailers and again was overwhelmed at the choices.
A few years ago…what, maybe five years?…..it was almost impossible to find attractive melamine, aka plastic, dinnerware.

These are all really fun! And so many to choose from:

West Elm does it again! Fabulous and fun…

I’ve put a link to my Pinterest board
Melamine for Outdoor Dining
over on my sidebar ———>

You will be amazed at the variety and choice available. I have tried to go back to the original source, and not just a dead end Pinterest page that simply says “view image”. Pinners: that is very annoying when you don’t take the time to go to an original source!

Enjoy all the colors and design…
