Serving Summer


Summer outdoor entertaining holds many joys. Along with some minor dilemmas -- you don’t want to serve delicious seasonal meals on flimsy disposable plates, but you don’t want to risk your favorite breakables either. Jonathan Adler, the shining star of whimsical design, has come up with a solution. His Happy Home line now comes in durable acrylic and Melamine versions so you can use these relentlessly cheerful (as well as affordable) platters, pitchers, martini glasses and plates outside while staying cool and carefree. Other brands of plasticware do exist, but aren’t nearly as fun. $5 to $26 at Velocity Art and Design.
