Summer is the time of the BBQ, but as you get older, red SOLO cups and Chinet plates seem less and less acceptable. Don't you want to host the BBQs you see in the pages of all of those lifestyle magazines? What's that? You don't have the cash for that kind of crap?
Check it out: these Schooner Melamine Plates ($1.99-$2.99 each, West Elm) are only $2-4 each and the nautical theme will lead people to believe that you are richer and whiter than you actually are. It's the stuff dreams are made of!
