Whenever Target announces there’s a new collaboration in town, you can bet it’s going to be good, especially when they’ve teamed up with one of the coolest designers on the block: Bri Emery of the rad blog DesignLoveFest. Just in time for summer and al fresco dining, Target partnered up with DesignLoveFest and Cheeky to bring out a line of crazy cute paper plates, napkins and cups that that will seriously step up your party game. Think — every Pinterest trend right there on your table: pastels, marbled patterns, color-dipped, polka dots and black and white geometric designs that the minimalist lover can totally get behind. They’re so cute that you’ll want to use them on the daily (or bring as a springy hostess gift, perhaps?) instead of saving them for special occasions. And aside from the positive typography, you have a legit reason to want to use these paper plates twice a day. For every product you buy, Cheeky will donate a meal to someone in need. Cheers to that! Scroll down to check out all the Instagram-worthy items and then start plotting your next trip to Target.
