Marketplace: Melamine Dinnerware Sets

In the COVID-19 era, I haven’t been hosting dinner parties as I have in the pre-COVID-19 era. I have, however, been visiting with family and friends in my backyard for very low-key social time. I serve a few drinks and snacks (always trying to minimize shared items) alongside an endless supply of Lysol wipes. The outdoor entertaining has made me consider investing in a melamine dinnerware set. I haven’t found a set that I absolutely love, but these are contenders.

All white is so clean, but is it also so boring for summer? Amazon, $53.02CAD

I like the classic patterns on this set from Amazon ($62.08CAD).
I really like the graphic pattern on these plates from Crate & Barrel (dinner plate, $10.95CAD).
I like the slightly irregular shapes of these CB2 dinner plates (set of 4 dinner plates, $33.95CAD).
I like this graphic set from Wayfair, too ($85.99CAD for service for 4)!

Once stock gets replenished in stores like HomeSense, I’ll have a look at options there, too. I would prefer to see the quality of the dinnerware set in person before I purchase it.

What do you think? Do you dine outside with outdoor-friendly dinnerware or do you use your everyday dishes?
