Random Giveaway — Picnic Ware by Mini Moderns

January 17, 2008

Oh goody. I’ve got a really yummy Giveaway today. From one of my favorite design companies. And. There are Three Winners. Which means three happy people when they receive their super cool prize. So. If you want to be a happy person, I encourage you to get your comment in to win one of Three Place Settings from the high-style line of Mini-Moderns.



If you’ve been checking in on Design Mom for awhile, you already know that some of my favorite wallpaper is made by Mini Moderns. I’ve posted about them before here and here and here — clearly I love them. Happily, they’ve applied their fantastic design sensibilities to picnic ware. Because, really. What is a picnic without something pretty to put your food on?

Covered in Mini Moderns signature color ‘Pear Green’ and their ‘Moo’ wallpaper pattern, this lovely picnic ware is perfect for out-of-doors eating or as everyday tableware for younger children. Why? Because it’s plastic. That’s why. Microwave and dishwasher safe. (The microwave bit is especially happy — because many plastics are not good in the microwave and it especially irritates me.) Each component is available individually or as a set.

Here are some close-ups so you can see the great pattern:




The three lucky winners of this Giveaway will each receive their own delightful place setting of the new picnic ware which includes a plate, bowl, tumbler and set of cutlery. Just right to set a pretty table for your little one while he attempts his first finger food.

And if you’re wondering how such pretty things are made (I for one am curious), you’ll like these pics of the Mini-Moderns workroom. There’s something nice about knowing each item is printed one by one by an actual person:



The made-one-by-one quality of these items makes them special, which makes them a bit pricey. Per piece, each component sells for
£8, which is roughly $16, which makes a place setting $64. But to celebrate the picnic ware launch, Mini-Moderns is offering the entire set — 1 bowl, 1 plate, a set of cutlery and a cup for £25 + postage. Nice.

Or you could enter this Giveaway and win one of three $64 place settings for free.

Thank you Mini Moderns!

Can I tell you how perfect these would be for me??? I’m a single gal living alone, and these are the perfect size. I don’t sit down to huge meals, rather a couple small side dishes and eventually a piece of meat/major food. these would make my favorite foods LOOK great!
