Be mine, Melamine…

29 Apr

Ok story time…

Last week Tony and I met with our unbelievable wedding photographers.  Seriously, if you have 10 minutes you gotta check out their blog Hitched Studios.  You might actually die over how talented these people are!  So since we were over in JP to meet them, we decided to stop at Bella Luna (great restaurant!) for dinner.

ENTER: HFoP Inspiration….  

So Bella Luna serves their food on those old school melamine plates.  No not the trendy ones, which I will blog about in a minute, but the DIY ones you totally rocked your creative side with as a child.  Like this rad one:

$10 says these parents told their child he/she was the next Picaso!

Well melamine has come a loooong way!  Not only is it super functional (it’s my #1 choice for BBQs or any outside eating where you don’t wanna risk breaking your plates), but it’s über cheap and has gotten super shnazzy!  Check it out!

Too colorful for you?  No prob!  Head to Crate and Barrel and get a simple white set.

Project challenge… With their bright colors, cheap price, and light weight – how great would Melamine plates be as wall art?

{Any takers?}
