Zak! Designs Moso #Giveaway!

IMG_0304For years, Zak Designs has been helping consumers become more environmentally responsible by providing reusable alternatives to disposable items as well as launching innovative eco-friendly products. With the release of its new Moso line of dinnerware and serveware, Zak is giving its consumers one more way to be fashionably green.

The Moso line from Zak Designs is made through an innovative process that combines 75 percent bamboo fiber of the giant moso bamboo plants with wheat starch. Their new Moso line durable enough to be used for years, yet is also 100 percent biodegradable! It also carries all the environmentally friendly benefits of bamboo. However, these dishes do require handwashing.

The Moso line has everything you could need. It includes a dinner plate and bowl as well as a divided plate and divided bowl while the serveware includes a 14” serve tray and a 3-piece nested bowl set. All of the pieces in the line are available in either red, orange, kiwi, or azure.

I love this brand new line. The colors are enticing. However, best of all, this stuff is good. My kids have put their plates and bowls to the test. They aren’t broken, and they aren’t wrecked. I also absolutely love that they are BPA free. You don’t have to worry about anything leaching into your food when you use the Moso line.

This Zak! Designs Moso line is a must have in your kitchen (especially if you have kids!). I have arranged for one lucky winner to win a 4pc. place setting (4 regular plates and 4 regular bowls). Here’s what you need to do:

Smarty Had A Party Review and Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Emma Peel. Congrats!

Sponsored by Tomoson.comI like to make things easy for myself.  Every other year we do Christmas Eve at my house, and I hate all the dishes that it brings (especially when we are talking 11 adults and 4 kids).  Granted, we have a dishwasher, but it still stinks.  After a dinner with everybody, we end up having to run at least 2 loads in the dishwasher to get everything clean.

That is where Smarty Had A Party comes in.  First of all, who doesn’t love that name?  Smarty Had A Party is the premier online retailer of elegant disposable dinnerware, offering an attractive alternative for classy parties, weddings, holidays and elegant events, at a substantial cost-savings over rentals. Although these dishes are sturdy and elegant enough to be used for an important event, they can be conveniently disposed of, and all at reasonable price. They even offer free ground shipping on all orders over $275.00!

We recently tried these out.  At first look, they look real.  It isn’t until you sit down and use them that you realize that it is plastic.  They definitely dress up your dinner, and this is a product I’ll be using again for family holidays.  Everybody was impressed with them, and it made cleanup a breeze.

Since we liked these so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to get their own Smarty Had A Party prize pack!  They prize pack consists of:

10.25″ Smarty Ivory and Chocolate Dinner Plates
Reflections Long Dinner Forks
Reflections Grand Heavy Knives
Reflections Spoons
Chocolate Brown Dinner Napkins
