Amy of Into Vintage was in my studio the other day and saw my stash of vintage picnic utensils and suggested a post on them. I do have quite a few. I like the tidy boxes and the graphics.
Ritefork, Ritespoon. Spoons and Forks packaged separately...it is the True Shape of Table Silver.
I like the company name..pretty straight forward..The Oval Wood Dish Corporation. Notice the different types of utensils offered. I have never found a soda spoon size. Same company as above, different packaging.
Beautiful, artistic, strong and safe..or so the package says.
Plastic party ware in Hawaiian colors!
I have a good supply of plastic spoons.
Marketed for baby feeding for one of the uses.
A good supply of forks.
Love a nice and tidy stack.
The other crazy thing about the old picnic utensils is how small they are in size. The pink utensils (below) are from a pack I picked up at Target the other day. Look how they dwarf the older, blue set. What tiny bites were taken with the old stuff! More modern day super-sizing.
Fun, silly collection. I love the old wooden spoons so much that I incorporated the idea into a little thank you I send out with Etsy orders. I used to use vintage spoons, but now I just buy the current version available in the craft stores. I add a thank you message (with an estate sale found rubber stamp) and a little bow for color,
