This Honey Vanilla Fruit Salad is the perfect Spring or Summer snack that will transport you straight to a beach paradise. Serve this fruit salad on the CAPTIVA Collection from Q Squared NYC and you’ll feel like you’re sitting on the edge of the sand with the waves crashing in front of you.
I’ve been dreaming of sandy beaches and the ocean breeze for months now. It’s already March and I haven’t made one single trip down to the coast yet! My beach loving heart is screaming for me to get it together and drive down 40 towards Carolina Beach. Even though I haven’t made it down there yet, I have a feeling that my toes will be in the sand very soon. Y’all know that I need the beach and ocean in my life. Anyone that knows me, knows that I love anything and everything that has to do with the coast. You could say that the ocean is in my soul. So when I was introduced to the Captiva Collection from Q Squared NYC , you could say that my little beach heart was in love at first glance. This Melamine dinner set is gorgeous and has the perfect beach theme! These Melamine plates and bowls are perfect for the dinner table, backyard patio and they’re great for a picnic on the beach or the patio at the beach house!

We go to the beach so much throughout the year that it’s become my second home. Packing the car for a day on the sand is like second nature to me now. While I make sure to grab our towels, sunscreen and chairs, I also always make sure that we have tons of snacks and drinks packed when we head out for a day at the beach. I don’t like super heavy foods when I’m at the beach; no one wants to feel weighed down when they’re soaking up the sun or playing in the waves.
That’s why I’m sharing this Honey Vanilla Fruit Salad with y’all today! Fruit is my go to snack when we’re at the beach. I could literally eat it all day long and be perfectly happy. In the past I’ve normally stuck with baggies of green grapes and slivers of Parmesan cheese as my go to beach snack but I’m changing it up a bit this year.
I’ve been in love with this Honey Vanilla Fruit Salad for a while and I’m planning on making this our beach snack this year when we’re relaxing by the waves. Not only will it be our beach treat but I know this is going to disappear at the pool this year too.
When we’re down at the beach, we spend most of the morning searching for seashells, the day relaxing and playing on the beach and we spend the evenings pool side.
I’m even going to make sure that I pack some of my Captiva dishes from Q Squared NYC in my bag for those poolside evenings! What better way to end a beach day by the pool than snacking on fruit salad and enjoying dinner on these beautiful seaside themed dishes.
Not only are they beautiful to look at but guess what… these Q Squared NYC melamine dishes are kid-friendly and virtually unbreakable/shatter-resistant! How perfect is that for a poolside meal with little ones running around!
You don’t have to worry about them breaking on the patio or slipping out of little wet hands and shattering while you’re enjoying your evening. They look like they’re porcelain or ceramic, don’t they?
That’s exactly what I thought when I first saw them. Thomas thought the same thing when I was unpacking them. However these dishes are 100% high-quality melamine and the best food-safe plastic on the market!
Love the way these dishes look or love the idea of gorgeous practical dishes that are a great alternative to ceramics and china?
