Entertaining

Backyard parties just seem to put people in a good mood. Barbecues, pool parties and marshmallow roasts with friends are more fun than being stuck indoors. Throwing a great party is easy when you have outdoor dinnerware, barware and other supplies on hand. At Pottery Barn, there is a full line of tableware and other products that you can use to host a terrific celebration.


Made of sturdy melamine, the outdoor dinnerware comes in a variety of designs and colors. Mix and match the different settings for a vibrant table or choose one color for a monochrome look. Complement the plates and salad bowls with bright acrylic glassware. Choose from tumblers, wine glasses and even martini glasses. Fun serving dishes shaped like fish go along with a summer beach theme.


Mix up some drinks and let guests serve themselves with drink dispensers. A large Mason jar dispenser is perfect for an outdoor party, while dispensers featuring metal bottoms are easy to clean. Place a few dispensers around the deck and label each drink with a miniature chalkboard nearby.


One item that all outdoor parties need is plenty of ice. The bar accessories line offers a variety of ice buckets from large metal tubs to smaller buckets that are perfect for a bottle of wine. Host a dinner party and impress your guests with great food and your sense of style.
