Where or what can we use for her to eat out of? And drink out of? THanks!
they also sell a floral set as well.
Sporting goods stores, like Dick's, have enamelware in their camping sections. It is cheaper there than to order from Nova. There are also many camping sites, like this one: http://www.wagonmound.com/enam1_a.html , that sell inexpensive enamelware. Look how cute those espresso mugs are!!!!

Enamelware is cool looking, but I worry about the enamel chipping and so on with everyday use? Any thoughts? I see it as more for play.

we used real dishes and glasses early. the dishes were our salad plates and the smaller glasses were purchased at montessori services. my almost 6 year old loves mugs these days. for outside use, we do use plastic cups for safety reasons. but i'm looking at getting some bamboo cups, which is very readily available now.

I understand that Corelle is particularly break-resistant if you've been having a problem with plates heading for the floor.

Thrift stores are an awesome place to find smaller sized coffee mugs, too, which are great.

Now we use wooden bowls for taking snacks outside and regular plates inside. DS usually drinks from a glass mason jar - virtually unbreakable and a good size for him to hold.
The enamel did chip a bit but not inside on the outside. I am not worried about it, i think it looks nice with chips, sort of older and worn and im not worried about lead paint etc in the nova enamelware. i would be worried about it in mic brands maybe.
For walking around snacks they use their Kleen Kanteen cups and plastic bowls (hides head).
I did want to say that I saw the cutest wooden (I think bamboo?) bowls, plates, and forks, spoons at Buy Buy Baby the other day of all places. And they were very affordable. I want to say it was Infantino or Sassy brand? Something very unexpected. They were a decent toddler size, but not big enough for kids (maybe 2 and under).

She's now starting to use our plates. But I would definitely recommend the enamelware for those starting stages.
Additional ideas from our Waldorf teachers:
~ creamer pitchers so that the kids can practice pouring small amount of water themselves
~ have the children cut apple slices with cheese spreaders, on small wood cutting boards. I found these to work well for us at home.
There are also new glass dishes, but I have not tried them.
