Dining al fresco is one of the best parts about summer. Once your backyard is set up with a beautiful outdoor dining set, string lights and maybe even an outdoor area rug, all you need to do is set the table. That’s where the best outdoor dinnerware comes in.

Want to know a secret? Your tablescape is like your front door. It gives your guests a first impression of who you are as a host, and gorgeous outdoor dinnerware can help set the tone for a memorable meal. There are no rules for setting a stylish outdoor table, so why not have some fun? From whimsical designs to traditional textures, eclectic patterns, and modern shapes, we found chic ideas for every aesthetic. The best part? Function-first options like melamine dinner plates, water-resistant placemats, and plastic wine glasses make it as fuss-free as possible, meaning these finds will help you spend more time with your guests and less time worrying someone might knock a glass onto the deck. We’ll toast to that!  


Sicily Outdoor Melamine Dinner Plates, Set of 4

Williams Sonoma


These elegant melamine dinner plates exude Italian elegance. They’re sure to wow guests and make a fabulous impression. Plus, they’re shatter- and scratch-resistant so they’ll stand the test of time. (And accidents.)


Grow Forward Wheat Straw Plates and Bowls Set



If you prefer a neutral look, this minimalist dinnerware could be for you. We love that these unbreakable plates and bowls provide a blank canvas to help other items on the table stand out.


Lucia Acrylic Coupe Glasses, Set of 4



Can we talk about these chic coupes? Whether you’re hosting dinner, appetizers, or happy hour at home, these acrylic glasses aren’t just beautiful—they’re loved by thousands for being durable, too.


Alexandra Farmer The Flock Melamine Oval Platter



If you have less experience decorating with color, consider pairing a bold platter like this one with a neutral tablecloth or plates. Or, go all out and try a maximalist scheme! This platter features a floral design that would easily coordinate with numerous hues, including blue, pink, white, cream, and orange.


Monique Lhuillier Claudia Outdoor Melamine Appetizer Plates, Set of 4

Pottery Barn


The traditional hostess will love these patio-proof appetizer plates, which feature a floral-inspired design that’s perfect for garden parties or weekend brunches. Made from melamine, these would complete an all-white look, stand out against a colorful tablecloth, or complement dinnerware that incorporates other textures.


TOSSWARE Plastic Wine Glasses, Set of 12



For a budget-friendly option, these outdoor stemless wine glasses are praised by thousands for their vibrant color, stackability, durability, and more. While made for wine, these glasses could be used to serve other summer staples like lemonade, juice, smoothies, and even desserts.


Marin Outdoor Melamine Dinner Plate



Organic shapes create beautiful visuals, and we love how the imperfect edges of these outdoor dinner plates help achieve a comfortable and carefree tablescape. Pair them with greens, florals, rattan, or a pop of color to make a subtle impact.


Happy Hour Outdoor Wine Glasses

Pottery Barn


A table setting isn’t complete without a wine glass, right? We love these bestselling outdoor wine glasses, which are shatter-resistant and made with a special plastic that’s also scratch- and stain-proof. Clear is a classic choice for dinner parties, whereas the aqua hue would be a fun choice for birthdays, pool parties, and more.


Dakota Bamboo Melamine Dinner Plates, Set of 4



This outdoor dinnerware features a glossy tint for a more youthful and modern aesthetic. While shown here in a neutral hue, these dishwasher-safe plates also come in fun jewel tones like pink and emerald green.


MyKitchenLinens Cotton Napkins



We like to think of a napkin as the finishing touch on a perfect place setting. You can create a beautiful look with napkins in alternating colors, coordinating hues, or used as pops of color across the table. These handmade cotton napkins will add instant style to your table and are made to last for years to come.


Cha Cha Pitcher



A pitcher isn’t all function—it can also serve as decor for your outdoor table. This all-purpose pitcher provides a place to put lemonade, grapefruit juice, or sangria on display. We like that its wide handle and exaggerated spout offers more visual interest than a typical pitcher.


DII Classic Woven Placemats, Set of 6



We couldn’t forget placemats. This collection checks all the boxes: stylish, budget-friendly, top-rated, suitable for the outdoors, and easy to clean, all within a versatile design that would pull any set of plates, bowls, glasses, and flatware together.


Amazing Abby Plastic Tumblers, Set of 8



Speaking of versatility, these shatter-proof tumblers are a stylish must-have for anyone with kids or unpredictable guests. Eight glasses for less than $30? You can’t afford not to buy these!


Light Woven Utensil Caddy

Williams Sonoma


Ever tried to see how much flatware you could fit in your hands to bring outside all at once? We’ve been there! Every smart host or hostess needs a utensil caddy, and this one features a versatile rattan material that would pair well with a variety of dinnerware styles.


Chilewich Basketweave Placemats

Williams Sonoma


These basketweave placemats are a more elevated option for formal outdoor gatherings. To clean them, simply use a sponge with warm, soapy water. You can use a bleach-based cleaner for stubborn stains.


Aria Gold Napkin Ring



While napkins can be arranged in a variety of ways, a napkin ring tends to look more polished. This gold napkin ring offers an elegant feel and is versatile enough to be used indoors, so you could repurpose a set of six or eight for indoor dinner parties, holiday gatherings, and more.
