Photo du Jour - Tupperware?


Never thought that my first ever Tupperware party would took place in an old stone house overlooking the vineyards in rural France. Actually, I never ever thought I would have the chance go to a Tupperware party in the first place.
It seemed like such a 1970's thing to do...
So when the invitation from my friend arrived, I wasn't sure what to expect.

Gone are the days of my mother's avocado green (to match our kitchen appliances, of course), mustard yellow and pumpkin orange colored salad bowls, measuring cups and lemonade pitchers.
The array of products they offer now is impressive! In festive, bright colors and every shape imaginable. You can get everything from wine bottle stoppers to manual food processors to fish poachers to vented charcuterie keepers.

Truly a gadget for every day of the year. And the prices are definitely 21st century! Pin It

I'm not sure about the tupperware, but that house looks fantastic!

I know a lot of people who are moving away from storing things in plastic. Is this updated tupperware? Free of the -- whatever chemical that leaks into our food?

Well if you are going to have a "Tupperware" party, where better to have it!! The house is stunning, I used to go to these parties years ago, infact living on a Airforce camp/base they were all the time, so YES I had loads of the stuff :-)

It is a fantastic house. Where we were sitting used to be a garage. The owners did almost all of the designing and renovating themselves.

I wondered that too...I thought about doing a bit of research on the subject, but never did.

Exactly! It was a beautiful setting and a couple of good friends were there, so it wasn't all that bad.

I got invited to a Tupperware party a while back, but did a little research on the the company, and if their products contain bisphenal-A. Basically, their website says their children's products are BPA free, but not most of their other products. Here's an article:

I didn't go to the Tupperware party, by the way. I remain true to Amazon!

Thanks for the info. I didn't buy anything, but it was tempting.
Isn't Amazon the best!
