Hey, friends! I’ve been thinking a lot about dining al fresco lately! As the weather warms up we spend more and more time outside and that means dining outside too! Today let’s talk about all the great plastic and non-breakable dinnerware options we can find and use for all our outdoor dining experiences! Yes, WE can use plastic! For years, I was firmly rooted in the only-use-REAL-dinnerware camp. But no more! Here’s what I’ll be using this summer…
The potting bench holds some of the plastic dinnerware I’ll be using this summer. All I can say is…. IT’S NOT YOUR MAMA’S PLASTIC!
Plasticware can be found in so many fabulous styles and perfect patterns. And they can be found at the most reasonable price point!
A few years ago I purchased these square white non-breakable plates. I’ve love love love them! They are sturdy, lightweight and easy to clean. And they won’t break if dropped! What could be better!!!!
I like white plates. They show off food the best and work with any other pattern and color. Versatile, good-looking and perfect for outdoor dining!
I also got these white plastic bowls at the same time. They are a perfect salad bowl!
If you are thinking of plasticware make sure to get a deep bowl. They hold anything from soup to ice cream!
I used my white plates and deep bowls for several years! Everything else on my outdoor tables was breakable! But, this year I got smart!
I’m in the process of collecting great plasticware. There is outstanding plasticware on the market these days!!!! I could start a whole other dish collection… OUTDOOR DINNERWARE!
I’m going patriotic this year! Aren’t these red star bowls adorable? They will be perfect for desserts and small side dishes.
I had a hard time picking out drinkware! There is so much to choose from! I finally decided on a classic soda fountain tall tumbler… non-breakable, of course! They are heavy and well made and were very reasonably priced!
And, check out the cute red checked trays…
Plastic wine glasses? Yes! I’ll be using them for berry crisps, trifle and other fun food too!
To make carrying utensils to the table easier I found this bright red caddy!
It makes taking the red and white handled flatware and the patriotic napkins outside!
I must admit I love cloth dinner napkins! But, I’m all about cute paper cocktail napkins too.
And I making a simple red bucket into a serving dish! I’m thinking salad will taste even better when served from this happy container! Creative, fun, functional and fabulous!
How about you? Have you gone plastic? What is your favorite outdoor piece of dinnerware?
