As the temps rise and we head outside to enjoy the days of summer, outdoor dining is a must! The following are a few outdoor dining pieces that will help any hostess with a summer soiree.
Walk into any home goods/decor store, and melamine is everywhere! Whether you are looking for something for a particular party or a timeless addition to your dinnerware collection, now is the time to get it.
Here are a few of my favorites:
[1) Outdoor party melamine dinner set from Pottery Barn, 2) Talavera melamine salad plates from Pottery Barn, 3) Personalized melamine plates from More Than Paper,4) Graphic melamine dinnerware from West Elm]
Not into to melamine? How about metal enamelware? You can find tons of this great, durable stuff at antique malls and flea markets, or you can buy your own new version at places like Amazon and Pottery Barn. We have about 14 gingham enamelware plates at our house, and they are our dinnerware of choice when dining outside!
There are also tons of great serving pieces and glasses that are perfect for outdoor entertaining. I am a huge fan of acrylic glasses that don't look too plastic-y and brightly colored serving pieces that go with any occasion. Don't you think these items below are guaranteed to liven up any al fresco gathering?!?
Hope these items inspire you to get outside and enjoy some fresh air!
