When the weather is nice, eating outdoors is one of the best ways to enjoy a good meal. The fresh outdoor air and gorgeous scenery will give your dinner parties a relaxed ambiance. To serve dinner, skip the generic paper plates and set your patio table with beautiful outdoor dinnerware from Williams Sonoma. These melamine plates and bowls are not only reusable and eco-friendly, but also come in gorgeous designs and colors to suit every personality.

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.

  • The Rustic collection features durable melamine bowls, plates and platters with the look and texture of rustic earthenware. Choose from a variety of colors including classic white and stunning turquoise.
  • The Iznik collection features gorgeous melamine dinnerware printed with Mayan-inspired patterns. Because these dishes all feature the same vibrant hues, you can mix-and-match patterns and still achieve a cohesive look.
