Outdoor Dinnerware Sets Get Stylish
Have fun during the warmer months when you stock up on outdoor dinnerware sets. Dining al fresco is one of summer's greatest pleasures. Now, you can invite your family, neighbors or friends outdoors for a delicious dinner, barbecue, picnic or poolside treats without worrying about shattering dishes on your patio. At Pottery Barn, an exciting range of styles is now available, too. Check out full place settings and serveware in the colors and patterns that reflect a summer mood and inspire you to plan a carefree gathering. Outdoor dinnerware sets let you serve a meal that's just as complete as what you'd serve indoors.
What Makes Outdoor Dinnerware Sets Different?
Outdoor dinnerware sets are different from your normal place settings mainly because they're so much less likely to break. While ceramic or porcelain dinner plates may also be quite durable, the odds of them getting a little chip if you dashed them against patio stone are certainly higher--not so with melamine dinnerware.
- Melamine is a compound that includes melamine resin and other strengthening components.
- It's great for outdoors and families with lots of little kids who may still be learning to carry plates to and from the table, counter or sink.
- These outdoor dinnerware sets are completely safe. They're color-fast, dishwasher-safe and can handle hot food without getting hot or losing their shape the way even the strongest paper plates eventually do.
Choosing The Style for Your Home
Select a style of outdoor dinnerware for your home by exploring the sophisticated colorways available this season.
- For a tabletop inspired by the clear colors of water, sand or a perfect expanse of puffy clouds, look to the Cabana collection, rife with desaturated shades that look like they're glazed.
- Bring home looks inspired by Mediterranean patterns, including cobalt and ocean blue, sunshine yellow, flowers, fleur-de-lis and light geometry.
- Go all-American with enamel-on-steel adorned with flags or plates that showcase a seafaring tradition with ship motifs, rope details and more.
Melanine Dinnerware with Matching Serveware
Discover a gorgeous array of melamine serveware to go with your outdoor dinnerware sets. These are the pieces that make the table feel like a party even if it's just an intimate meal with your family.
- Look for platters with sectional serving pieces to offer dips, crudites, olives and other savory or crunchy snacks.
- Big serving forks and spoons with the same pattern as your dinnerware are now possible, thanks to the ease with which melamine holds color.
- Wide platters get entrees, like a whole fish or a roast, to the table with side handles that make carrying easy.
Enjoy the beauty and versatility of this dinnerware to make the most of the season with your loved ones.
