Today I’m inspired by…Melamine. First of all, I love Target. I was recently there…as I am nearly every-other day…and LOVED their melamine dinnerware. It’s super inexpensive and unbreakable. Here is the set that T and I loved:

“Figural Melamine Plate Set”

Seriously, how cute is that frog?! Inspiration point: I could totally paper-piece something like that…and those colors, yum!

I went on Target’s website because we had gotten some cups that had a pattern like the top tray here:

Winter Themed Mini Trays Target

I love both of these “Winter Themed Mini Trays.” Inspiration point: Maybe I could make some winter/Christmas decor based on these. Circle punch, patterned paper, frame it up…voila!

Here are some more great dinnerware options (all available at

“Glitter Snowflake” Inspiration point: I like that these are contemporary colors and shapes.

“Leaves” Inspiration point: Love the colors and the doodled “veins” in the leaves.

“Dot Salad Plate” Inspiration point: Love the colors and circles!

“Orla Kiely Green Apple and Pear” Inspiration point: I like the simple pattern and the two green shades combined with the brown and white.

“Flower Decal” Inspiration point: I love the “stitches” and “sequins.”

I saved my favorite for last- “Monster Decal.” Inspiration point: blue, white, and lime is one of my favorite color combinations to use for T’s album. I love the addition of a little bit of teal! That little monster reminds me of the Night Light collection by October Afternoon and the Orbit collection by Crate Paper.
