Summer is nearly here and if you’re already planning a Memorial Day gathering or dreaming about weekends in the pool and food on the grill, you’ll definitely want to see our list of must-haves for outdoor entertaining. First up in this series is: cute summer plastic dinnerware sets. Keep reading for our favorite melamine plates and serving sets to keep things glass-free in your backyard this summer.
Summer Tableware Target
The wheels on my Target cart might have literally screeched when I spotted the Yellow Tabletop Entertaining Collection from Threshold. I am always so drawn to lemons and this muted design makes me want to dine al fresco all summer long.
In addition to lemons, these are also available in an orange and leaf designs. All three collections can work together to mix and match, if that’s your style.
The Target Threshold collection is made with a mix of melamine and bamboo and is BPA-free. Dishwasher safe but should not but used in microwave, as per Target’s website.

Desert Vibes: Pastel Cactus Collection
Lean into the dry heat with the Pastel Cactus Collection from World Market. Aren’t these perfect for a summer brunch? I love the bright punch of colors paired with the watercolor stripes on the serving trays. Plates come in a set of 4 and serving trays come in a set of 3 different sizes.
Americana: Red, White and Blue!
I can smell the grill already! I love these two classic summer sets from Wayfair. Whether kicking off summer with a Memorial Day fete and winding down the season with a Labor Day send off, either of these 12-piece sets work. Just add apple pie.
