Affordable Outdoor Summer Dinnerware

French Bull 15.75-Inch Melamine Lazy Susan, Ziggy

Melamine dinnerware and plastic tumblers are great for outdoor dining. They are lightweight to transport, non breakable, affordable, and now stylish enough to use indoors too!

Melamine Dinnerware Sets

Many melamine dinnerware sets are low cost, and come in a variety of styles and colors, often mix and match. I love the bright colors outdoors. Note: not all sets are top rack dishwasher safe.

French Bull

I love the French Bull collection of patio dishes. The patterns contrast very well, and a mix of colors and patterns is especially pretty outdoors. The prices are a bit higher than some lines of melamine dishes, but they are meant to last and are top-shelf safe in the dishwasher. You can always mix and match a few of these gorgeous dishes designed by Jackie Shapiro with other melamine dishes.

Plastic Tumblers

Plastic tumblers are great for outdoor beverages. Some are insulated to keep your drinks cold, and you can even get reusable straws now. You may want to watch for BPA-free and top-rack dishwasher safe.
