Is it really almost June?? School is ending, warmer weather is coming, and that means eating al fresco! There are lots of great serving pieces for use outdoors, but here are a few of my favorites!
MacKenzie Childs has some great outdoor platters, bowls, etc. that we use all the time. I actually give them as wedding gifts sometimes because they’re so versatile!
Annie Modica has amazing trays, lazy susans, etc. I only own one tray (that was actually a gift) because they are a bit pricey. They are gorgeous and quite sturdy though, so if you can afford it, go for it! If you don’t see the pattern you are looking for on their website, check other online sellers for the previous years’ lines.
Pottery Barn occasionally carries some cute outdoor items, like these colorful melamine plates and festive serving tray! I also like their large beverage servers and stands so we can make lemonade and/or cocktails for a crowd.
I’ve always thought of Gien as makers of exclusively fine china- turns out they have a few beautiful outdoor pieces as well. These trays are just a few. I found these for sale at ThePinkDaisy.com
Le Cadeaux makes affordable outdoorware. We have a few pieces from one of their older lines and they are some of my everyday go-to’s. You can even fill them with desserts and leave as a hostess gift!
Juliska is another company that makes amazing dinnerware, but it turns out they also make cute wicker serving caddies and trays, as well some shatterproof cups and dishware.
Always remember to check some of your local stores as well. I have found some super cute pieces at Target and TJMaxx! Now get out your patio umbrellas and fire up those grills- it’s time for some summer fun with family and friends!
