Every time my family eats outside, I have this irrational concern about breaking a plate. It doesn’t keep me up at night, but every meal I think to myself, “This is the day.” Breaking a plate shouldn’t be a big deal, but if it is a concern, it definitely shouldn’t interfere with holiday plans.
Now I’m not a big fan of disposable dishes, but it does make me feel better knowing that I can wash and reuse them. Not the paper ones, silly! The plastic ones. I know, plastic is so taboo these days. But tell me that gorgeous lulav and etrog motif isn’t worth it for a set of plastic plates for a week.
It is a little bit of a time consuming project if you’re hand cutting it all out. Sorry in advance. But even if you just cut out the center part and not the wreath, they would look gorgeous. As for the vinyl, make sure you’re using permanent vinyl. No can do for the temporary stuff. It won’t survive the hot soapy water when you’re washing the dishes later. I used a frosted vinyl, but anything that goes with your style is perfect.
