Whether it's in your own backyard, around a pool, at a picnic or at the beach, consider adding outdoor lounge furniture for the ultimate treat to your guests. Also, learn more about our collection of outdoor entertaining essentials as well as outdoor dining furniture styles.

Dinnerware for Outdoor Entertaining

When choosing your outdoor entertaining accessories, durability is a key consideration. Leave your ceramic dinnerware inside and instead opt for lightweight, break-resistant melamine plates. Our melamine is available in seasonal colors as well as neutral hues to coordinate with all of your outdoor table setting ideas. Acrylic dinnerware is another versatile option to use outdoors. It combines glass-like clarity with the break-resistance of plastic. Our BPA-free, clear acrylic drinkware, including tumblers, outdoor wine glasses, beer glasses and margarita glasses, is perfect for enjoying a beverage with friends around the fire pit. We also have acrylic serving pieces, such as bowls and pitchers, that bring the beauty of clear glass without the worry of accidental breakage to the BBQ or picnic. Give your outdoor entertaining setup a classic look by placing it all on an outdoor wood dining table.

Outdoor Entertaining with BBQ and Grilling

Summer is the season of grilling, so let your backyard entertaining center around the barbecue pit. Upgrade your outdoor cooking style with a charcoal Weber grill, or explore smaller outdoor grills that are ideal for balconies, beach parties and picnics. Then, choose from a curated selection of grill pans made from rust-resistant stainless steel or classic Lodge cast iron cookware to get your meal started. Don't forget the BBQ tools; spatulas, turners, tongs and basting brushes are all outdoor entertaining essentials for grilled food lovers. If you want to expand your menu beyond the bun, explore specialty grilling gadgets, such as pizza stones, skewers and grill baskets.

Picnic and Beach

When entertaining outdoors, a change of scenery can make the day feel extra special. Make dining alfresco away from home something to look forward to with picnic accessories and gear. When packing up food to share with friends and family, choose between contemporary totes and traditional picnic baskets. If you plan to enjoy cool beverages or perishable snacks, make sure that a cooler is among your outdoor entertaining accessories as well. To add a little elegance, coordinate your picnic blanket with your paper napkins and plates. Want to elevate the meal off the ground? Our outdoor table in a bag is a popular choice for carrying to outdoor concert venues and the beach. To add to the afternoon's festivities, take along a selection of classic lawn games, such as bocce ball, croquet, scoop ball and horseshoes for some friendly competition. What's more: wooden yard games also make for great outdoor entertaining gifts.
