I had some girlfriends over for afternoon tea during the week. I decided to use my new melamine plates I had bought to go camping with. I think they looked gorgeous. The pastel colours as so soft and feminine. One of my friends said she could not believe I was going to use them to go camping. So after a bit of thought I have decided that I won't take my pretty plates camping. I will rummage through the cupboards to see what else I can find. They won't be as pretty but they will be practical.
