One of my favorite things about summer is being able to spend more time outdoors. After so much time cooped up due to rain or snow (yes, we had snow not that long ago), it’s wonderful being able to hang outside with friends, family, and puppies enjoying the beautiful view and beautiful weather. These outdoor gatherings almost always involve food – lots and lots of food. And when it comes to serving food, I love finding dinnerware that has the same fun spirit as the rest of the party.
Target’s new summer lines of summer entertaining essentials has some wonderful items to bring some color and excitement to your outdoor tables. One great example is this lovely set of Summer Strawberry Dinnerware. Made from the ever-durable Malamine, these come in dinner plates, salad plates, and hi ball tumbers. I love the vibrant blue border and the burst of red from the strawberry that really capture the spirit of summer.
Pair it with this awesome serving Bowl with Bamboo Lid (which could also double as a quick cutting board.) as well as bamboo serving utensils and you’re set for serving a fresh summer fruit salad.
I’ve always been a fan of Target for having unique and colorful items that can really accent your home. There are plenty of affordable outdoor entertaining items at great prices. If you plan on doing entertaining this summer, you may want to stop by your local Target store to browse their selection. Whether you’re traveling to the beach or to a park, Target has everything you need to make the most of your summertime adventures.
