I came on Marye-Kelley Blue Willow while I was looking for something else and put it in my shopping cart to think about later.
Now that it is summer, even though we aren’t entertaining, we are living more on the porch.
Blue Willow Ice Bucket
The Blue Willow Ice Bucket is beginning to look like a need.
Marye-Kelley IB1386 Blue Willow Ice Bucket
The Blue Willow Ice Bucket is made of Lucite. It is 6” wide x 6 ½” high, not counting the handle.
It comes with the tongs and a replaceable waterproof insert. The waterproof inserts are printed on both sides.
Blue Willow Melamine Serving Tray
There are other pieces of Marye-Kelley Blue Willow that are ideal for entertaining on the porch.
Marye-Kelley M1386 Blue Willow Melamine Platter
Melamine is food and dishwasher safe, but you cannot microwave it. You might think you can, but every time you do, it heats up and becomes more brittle. So, unless you want it to turn color or break, don’t put it in the microwave and threaten everyone you live with if they ever do.
I found the Blue Willow Melamine Platter when I was looking for a replacement for my Blue Willow Cake Stand.
The Marye-Kelley Blue Willow Melamine Platter is available in two shapes.
- 14″L x 10″ W Melamine Platter
- 10″ Round Plate
I love china, but for the porch I prefer something less breakable.
Blue Willow Lucite Tray
I love a tray near my desk to corral all the clutter that accumulates. Marye-Kelley makes a lucite tray with the Blue Willow pattern. But it will also be ideal to serve on the porch.

Melamine Porch Dishes
Melamine dishes are great to use on the porch. I with I could find some with a Blue Willow pattern, but I never have.
I was given some pieces of that are a Talavera pattern. I love it on the porch!
You can get the same kind of melamine dishes they use in Chinese restaurants. These patterns have been around a long time. You can find nearly any kind of dish they use in a restaurant. They are super durable and easy to find if you need more.
Thunder Group sells the Blue and White Asian Lotus pattern in every size and quantity you can think of.
I used to have these plates. I found them at a restaurant supply store. They were lost in a move. They call them Peacock plates.
