We own several of those melamine plates that we purchased when our grandchildren were born and still have. Our oldest is 20 ….I can’t seem to bring myself to throw them away even though they are worn, the dinosaurs seem not so scary, Mickey seems to not have such big ears…..still, they bring back such sweet memories of the grandkids chasing their peas around on those plates. I still use them. I can’t help myself.
I did find some that I loved a couple of weeks ago and did pick up a few new ones in case the family is afraid they may get peeling paint by using the old ones. I do have regular dishes, but why mess them up when you can use disposable paper plates when the gang’s all here! Saves on washing the real things. I don’t want dishpan hands.
I found these and thought how cute these would be to use on the patio, on the sun porch, or on a picnic! And if you have a place at the lake, or the beach, they fit in perfectly. Or if you have little ones, use these! I loved the colors in these.
Today, since it is July 1, and since it is the beginning of a great month for give-a-ways, I want to give this set of 4 plates, 4 salad plates, 4 bowls, 4 matching glasses, 2 matching dish towels, and two gorgeous lime green pot holders with a neat grip on the back of these fitted nicely into a coordinating basket to someone who would like to have a set.
If you want to be in the drawing, just leave a comment and answer the following questions: What are your plans for July 4th? Staying home, going somewhere, cooking out, laying low, staying out of the heat and humidity? A winner will be selected on Wednesday, July 3rd and posted here.
Have a safe and fun July 4th!
