Melamine: It’s not just for outdoor use any more.

If you will remember, last year I did a post:
Outdoor Dining: The Melamine Trend
I have also been updating my Pinterest board
Melamine For Outdoor Dining
A name change is overdue for the board: maybe a simple “Melamine?”

There are so many great new, fun, and colorful designs coming on the market each month. Here is a roundup of some of the new designs I’ve found:

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?… was almost impossible to find attractive melamine, aka plastic, dinnerware.

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