We’re talking melamine dinner plates, serving platters, outdoor glassware, napkins, picnic blankets and pillows—everything you need to create the perfect outdoor tablescape (lawnscape?) is waiting for you. Created in partnership with Spoonflower, Shutterfly’s collection offers tons of global textiles and designs from artists worldwide. Yes, my blue gingham is cute but LOOK AT THIS WATERMELON OPTION.) All of the melamine plates are BPA-free and dishwasher safe. Styles range from chic to whimsical and honestly these melamine dishes look as luxe as designer options.
Speaking of designer options—the real reason I discovered these melamine plates at Shutterfly is because I was intent on finding a set of melamine dishware for the upcoming summer season so that if one of my children decided to spontaneously use their plate as a frisbee, everyone (including the plate) would survive. I ordered two sets of pricey designer melamine plates but had my heart set on finding a blue gingham option so ordered these much-less-expensive plates from Shutterfly on a whim. Long story short, these plates were not only more attractive in person than the designer alternatives, but the printed design was noticeably better quality and the plates themselves had superior heft. Add to it that these were dishwasher safe and the other two sets were immediately sent back. I am truly floored at the quality for the price with these.
Once I was safe in the knowledge that Shutterfly came to play and was winning the quality game, I naturally had to order a full line-up of picnic-perfect pieces for summer. After finding the blue gingham plates of my dreams, I decided to snag the matching gingham picnic blanket, and gingham cups as well. To add a little interest, I ordered these absolutely beautiful floral dinner plates and serving platters, which are perfect for cheese and fruit to share. The coordinating outdoor pillows make for a much more comfortable picnic situation and put the cuteness over the top.
While I was ordering all of these Shutterfly pieces for my dream day outdoors, I finally took a moment (because that’s all it takes, a literal moment) to order prints for the vacant frames all over my house that have been BEGGING me to fill them every time I walk past. I’m so glad I did, because it served as a reminder of HOW EASY IT IS on Shutterfly. Truly, their interface for uploading, editing, and cropping different photos is the most user-friendly thing imaginable and their prices for prints can’t be beat. Naturally, I had to add a Shutterfly frame to cart (which I personalized with “Summer 2022” at the bottom) so I can remember these moments forever.
