I love a good party (clearly) and with summer right around the corner, I’m excited to be planning a pool party in Palm Springs next month. While I normally am a champion of real dishes for most parties, an outdoor BBQ and pool party are the exceptions (wet hands + glass + bare feet = not a good combo). Plus, who wants to do dishes when it’s 100+ degrees outside? I’d rather be enjoying more time with my guests.

However, finding paper plates that are stylish is no easy feat for your fete. Which is why I’m so excited about the new MADHOUSE by Michael Aram collection. Featuring stylish designs that make you forget you’re eating from a paper plate, my favorite is the Lemonwood collection. Yellow, black and white? Sold!

If you are planning a Memorial Day BBQ or Fourth of July picnic — or simply want to enjoy a relaxed evening at home (I set these up around my cocktail table to see how everything looked together and realized it would be fun to order take-out and pop open a bottle of champagne for a fun night in with friends), take a peek at the MADHOUSE by Michael Aram collection.
