I am always inspired by photos of beautifully-decorated dining rooms with mix-and-match tableware. Flea market finds, family hand-me-downs and other pieces make their way onto the same table, and they all look great together. I don’t have a lot of dishes in different styles, and even if I did, I’m not sure I’d have the guts to use them all at the same time on purpose. The multiple solid color sets in Target’s Eco-friendly Square Dinnerware Collection might give me a slightly less traumatic way to mix and match.
The pink, blue, green and yellow collections make me think of eating dinner on the back porch on a hot summer night. Each collection includes dinner plates, dessert plates, bowls and cups, all sold in sets of 4. I’d personally like to get a couple of sets in different colors, but there aren’t quite enough people in my family to justify buying more than one. Still, the idea of mixing and matching them is a good one.
Don’t let the glossy finish fool you — these plates are made of bamboo. They are both dishwasher safe and biodegradable, which is a great combination for families. These are going on my wish list.
