Folk Plates

We love melamine plates for people of all ages, especially in lieu of paper plates for those al fresco summer meals. (“Al fresco” is our fancy way of saying “PB&Js on the front porch with our preschooler.”) We think you’ll agree that these adorable matroyshkas would look sweet on either the grown-ups’ table or the kids’ table.

Designed by Thomas Paul Fernez, each 8″ plate has its own subtle pattern differences, depending on the color. And just a reminder: while melamine is dishwasher-safe, it doesn’t like the microwave. Which is fine, because you shouldn’t microwave a PB&J anyway.
