Outdoor Dinnerware Essentials

While the needs of every household may differ, having a diverse collection of plates, bowls and serving equipment facilitates entertaining large groups of friends and family members. Include some or all of the following items to create a complete dinnerware set for outdoor entertaining.

  • Four to six dinner plates, or enough to serve each member of the family. If you frequently host large family gatherings, consider keeping extra outdoor dinner plates handy.
  • An equivalent number of salad plates and a set of bowls for appetizers, side dishes or desserts.
  • Coordinated outdoor serving bowls and platters are also important to have. Choose serveware in various shapes and sizes to accommodate every dish on the menu.
  • Complete your outdoor dinnerware set with shatterproof outdoor glasses and stylish beverage dispensers.
