As most of you know I am somewhat of a dish-aholic so it is rare that I ever use or buy paper plates. However, when you have a mom who discovers a super cool, very thrifty paper goods store and she buys you garbage bags of the cutest paper plates, matching napkins and other fun table items, you use them!
During the summer with all the farmer’s markets, it is not uncommon for us us to finally sit down and eat something for dinner at 9:00 in the evening. And the thought of messing up a bunch of dishes and having to clean up the kitchen is just not desirable! So, the paper products come in handy especially for a light dinner.
The other night we had a simple dinner of a pasta salad that I had made ahead of time with our DTL Herb Italian Dressing (see recipe at this blog post) and just some fresh sliced tomatoes.
We sat outside on the patio and ate and talked about the day.
Cute rooster paper plates with matching napkins.
These placemats can easily be wiped down.
Just a simple light meal and some downtime after a full and exhausting day.
Because this is really helping me stay in check, I am posting again and probably will continue to do so, what items I am “Reverse-Thrifting”.
- The set of four vintage FireKing red & white striped coffee mugs
- Set of two white etched fruit design glasses
- Set of four Red & White Check Placemats
- Set of four Blue & White Check Placemats.
