Life is a Picnic

We're taking dining into the outdoors this summer with brand new melamine dinnerware from Relish. Made to look just like pottery, but without the breakable factor, Relish is picnic perfection! We grabbed our favorite pieces to mix and match, plus a decked out cheese board, and headed outside.

Relish Melamine Dinnerware

What is melamine exactly? Glad you asked! It's a resin based plastic, which makes it extremely durable and almost shatterproof. While we don't recommend putting it in the microwave or oven, it's perfectly safe in the dishwasher. Our favorite color in this line is the white. We simply couldn't choose between the bead or scallop edge, so why not mix it together? 

Each plate and dish in Relish is molded from real pottery to get the look just right. The brand's pottery line Cabell's Designs was featured this past January in beautiful colors and styles, too!

Don't forget about serving pieces, too. With 2 platters and 2 large bowls, there's a shape and size for just about any dish you have planned.

A picnic wouldn't be complete without a cheese board! We kept it simple with just two cheeses, a little fruit, and fresh baked bread, of course.

The summer has just begun, and we already feel inspired by the constant sunshine and outdoor adventures. Share photos with us of all your dining adventure this season on social media. We'd love to see!
