Let’s face it: Single-use dinnerware makes entertaining easier. With no dishes to wash or silverware to scrub after a wine-filled evening, just toss the whole table in the trash can (or better yet, the recycling bin), and go to bed. But we also kind of cringe at the thought of using paper goods when we’re entertaining — especially for fancier affairs. Enter L’entramise, a new company selling disposable dinnerware so divine that you may never wash another dish again.
Launched in April 2017 , the company was co-founded by Allison Watters Vartolo and Alison Girschick Egan, who met while working in the NY fashion world. The line has everything you need to host even the swankiest of soirées, including napkins, plates, champagne flutes, table covers, placemats, and more — all in colors and patterns we’re obsessing over.
The company’s design esthetic is eclectic. “Our products are used for everything from dinner parties to chef tastings to kids parties and weddings,” Watters Vartolo tells Brit + Co. “So when we are designing, we are thinking of the woman who summers on the Cape, the college graduate who is throwing her first in-home dinner party with friends, the bride who wants a low-key but beautiful outdoor wedding, and the mom trying to execute the perfect pink-tones third birthday party.”
Don’t like a matchy-matchy look? No problem. You can purchase items a la carte to mix and match to the max, by design. “It’s a core mission of our brand to afford customers the ability to be creative, and encourage lots of mixing and matching,” Watters Vartolo says. A la carte buying encourages shoppers to buy only what’s needed (no need to purchase 25 plates when you only need 6!), and underlines the brand’s sustainability message. “We have also taken special note of sustainability when crafting our products, which are recyclable, and sourcing products like our compostable/biodegradable paper linens and palm-leaf items. We encourage [people using our items to make sure they’re] disposed of and recycled properly, and that any reusable plastics be just that: Hand-washed and reused,” Watters Vartolo adds.
Okay, so you may have to wash a few dishes, but still, this stuff makes us want to throw a party pronto.
