Round Up: Ten Outdoor Plates That Won’t Shatter The Bank

It may seem like an indulgence but having a set of melamine plates is an absolutely necessity for easy outdoor entertaining. First, since melamine is shatterproof, gone are the worries of broken ceramics and the potential for accidents.  Second our melamine is BPA-free so there is no worries about off-gassing of harmful chemicals to your children and loved ones.  Third but not least are the endless opportunities to add vibrant pattern and color as part of your outdoor entertaining.

We pulled together 10 of our favorite plate designs from Summer that will bring fun, cheer and a little irreverence to  your next outdoor gather!  Hover over the graphic below and click on the pictures to get more information on each design.
