The news of Mercadona for Christmas meals are not limited to prepared dishes, the typical nougat and sweets such as panettone, we can also dress the party table with little budget. Without too many luxuries, yes, but giving it that Christmas air that cannot be missing in these celebrations, especially in large families or with younger children where practicality prevails, and not the linen tablecloth with gold thread.
We know that disposable tableware they are not the most sustainable option, but we are also aware that nobody likes to end Christmas lunches and dinners with piles of dishes and glasses to wash and the laundry basket to the top with tablecloths and napkins to wash. Not to mention the accidents that always happen when there is a lot of chaos at the table with valuable pieces that break or insurmountable stains on the grandmother’s tablecloth.
If you prefer to avoid all this fuss and leave the luxuries for quieter occasions, this year Mercadona has renewed its typical collection of products for the table with a facelift to its already traditional tablecloth. Poinsettiadecorated with the Easter flower, and throwing another one in green, both as a new fabric texturein roll format to avoid unsightly folds.
And if you are precisely looking for an option that is cheap but also somewhat more sustainable, this year’s cups leave disposable and flimsy paper for a more resistant -and apparent- reusable plastic material, which can even be wash in the dishwasherto use them again during all parties.
The price of each of these tablecloths is 4.10 euros, and have measurements of 2.5 x 1.2 meters. They are made in Italy and it is warned that when wet they could fade. The glasses are produced in Valencia and are sold in packages of ten units at 1.70 euro; they have a capacity of 400 ml each and can be reused up to 20 times. The flute-type cava glasses are also made of the same reusable plastic, at 1.60 euros for a pack of six.
