I don’t know about you, but as soon as the weather starts to warm in the spring, I want to be outside on our patio a lot more often! We cook more meals on the BBQ, sit outside for a drink in the the afternoon more often, and inevitably, we host more outside!
And with that comes wanting new patio dishes & fun things for outdoor dining and entertaining, am I right?!? So today, that’s what I’m sharing! My top picks for Outdoor Dining & Entertaining. I’m linking over 50 of my favorite pieces at the bottom of the post! Let’s do dinner on the patio!
Several years ago, my mom got me an Outdoor Serving Tray from Crate & Barrel, and it is still one of my favorite things I bring out each spring. Whether I’m entertaining or not, I use it to pile everything on to take out to the patio. It is something I didn’t know I needed until I got it as a gift. I’m also loving this Outdoor Wicker Tray, this Set Of 2 Wood Serving Trays, and this Enamel Serving Tray. Tip- when not in use, style your tray with an outdoor plant & candles!
Another item you never realize you need until you have one, is an outdoor beverage dispenser. I love this Drink Dispenser With A Stand for ice water or a fun beverage. These matching Drink Glasses are perfect to set beside the dispenser in a cute Basket. Speaking of perfect, this Galvanized Beverage Tub With A Stand is a must-have for entertaining. Makes it so easy for your guests to help themselves to drinks!
Another item I love to have on-hand for entertaining outside is a Silverware Caddy. It is so nice to have a spot for napkins and all the silverware! This Caddy from Target is a more affordable option. It’s $10!
When my mom got me my Patio Serving Tray, she also got me the cutest Melamine Plates from Crate & Barrel. I still have and use them today! A more affordable option are these super cute Target Melamine Plates.
This Bocce Ball Set is on my wish list! It is definitely a splurge, but has amazing reviews! Sounds to me like it is a winner! A more affordable option is this Outdoor Game Set from Amazon. It also has great reviews!
Another item on my wish list for this summer is an outdoor set of lights! Loving this Waterproof Light Set! This blog post is super helpful- The Easiest Way To Hang String Lights On Your Deck.
