Outdoor Dining Essentials

As the weather warms and the days grow longer, outdoor dining items and accessories allow you to savor every meal in style. Whether you’re hosting a backyard barbecue, an elegant garden party, or just looking to enjoy an alfresco meal, having the right outdoor dining essentials can elevate the experience.

Shatterproof Wine Glasses

We understand—those fancy crystal wine glasses look gorgeous on the dinner table, but when you’re kicking back with some bocce ball, you need drinkware that can keep up with the party without worrying about broken glass! Made with Tritan plastic material, these wine glasses will not break upon impact and are much more durable than other glass drinkware while still giving a classier touch than regular-grade plastic.

Drink Dispensers

Minimize frequent trips to refill pitchers by opting for a durable and stylish beverage dispenser. This beverage dispenser holds 2.5 gallons of your favorite drink, and you can keep it cooler for longer by filling the base with ice. Made of durable yet lightweight clear acrylic, it features an easy-to-use spigot and wide-mouth lid that makes it a breeze to fill.

Pop-Up Gazebo Tent

Enhance your outdoor space with sun and bug protection by using this pop-up gazebo, which fits perfectly over a table and chairs set or a patio couch. Offering 121 square feet of coverage, it features a top air vent to maintain a cool environment inside. The mosquito netting can be lowered when needed or left open for an airier atmosphere. It’s lightweight and comes with a carrying bag, so you can easily tote it around.

Food Covers

If you avoid eating outdoors because you can’t stand pesky bugs, food covers are a must-have! (While it doesn’t totally solve the bug problem when you’re actually eating, it will certainly keep your food protected in the meantime.) The square 17″x17″ and 8″ tall design provides an ideal size for most plates and serving trays. Place the high-density nylon mesh cover over your dish and it’ll sit securely within the frame.


Outdoor placemats define seating arrangements, the separation of utensils, and protect the furniture from spills and condensation. When looking for a set of placemats, be sure to think about the colors, design, and purpose these placemats will bring to the backyard. Traditional rectangular placemats are nice but try an out-of-the-box circle shape for a fun switch! These round place settings come in a set of six and add a colorful, decorative element to the dining experience.
