What can you bring to a party besides a bottle of wine? Consider a set of four colorful/seasonal dessert plates with some cookies. There are tons of great melamine options these days (I just put “melamine plate” into an Etsy search and got 84 pages of results!) and they are a far-cry from the high school cafeteria variety you may remember from your youth. However, they offer the same un-breakable advantage, making them ideal for families with young children and outdoor meals. If you plan ahead, consider personalizing them.
