We’re assuming we’re not the only one spending a lot more time at home than in summers past. Let us help you live your best (and most fashionable) life outside by annexing the patio to your dining space.
A wavy-gravy serving set
With their hammered texture and wavy design, these servers are a sensation for the senses…and perhaps even a little psychedelic when their uneven surface catches the glimmer of candlelight. Made from stainless steel, they’re as fuss-free as they are fashionable.
An ice bucket that gives new meaning to the term “bucket list”
The rustic glam vibe of the wood exterior on this ice bucket fits into any outdoor scene. Perfect for keeping within reach for all your cocktail-shaking needs—or simply plunk a bottle in the bucket and let everyone help themselves to refills.
A platter that can elevate even your sister-in-law’s dessert
Individually handcrafted in Europe, these understated yet elegant platters are mouth-blown and hand-cut using traditional techniques. You may not want to cover them up, although we think you’ll find they work quite nicely for stone fruits, artfully arranged ice cream sandwiches, and especially that layer cake everyone always begs you to make.
A lucite cart! Yeah, baby!
No more running back to the kitchen every few minutes for things you forgot. The ample shelf space on this rollable cart lets you keep anything you could possibly need outside and within arm’s reach of the table. And its see-through retro aesthetic blends in unobtrusively with any setting.
A different kind of screen saver
These relatively unobtrusive white mesh food domes ensure only invited guests attend dinner by shooing away insects. Essential not just for the backyard but for camping.
A pizza oven so cute you’ll want to name it
Cooking a pizza in minutes in your backyard is a dream come true. This baby is compact, heats up fast, and, yes, is portable. That’s right. You can still have pizza while camping, at the beach, or visiting relatives.
A tray that keeps its cool–even if you don’t
Pop this marble tray in the fridge before filling it with lovelies and there’ll be no worrying about your delicate creations wilting outdoors in the heat. Even off-season, we’re quite certain you’ll find occasions to put it to use.
Mod plates your guests will swear you stole from the Guggenheim
Not only are these porcelain plates miles away from the standard plastic disposable ones used in summers past, their eye-catching and contemporary lines will easily elevate even a weeknight burger and potato salad to Instagram-worthy levels. Feel good about reducing waste while flaunting your exceptional taste.
Lanterns to light the way, especially after a few drinks
Illuminate the outdoors with these oversize yet understated lanterns that are perfect for adding a cool glow after dark. After all, we all look better by candlelight.
Diamonds may be fine, but ruby is divine
Time to retire those ubiquitous red plastic cups that bring a frat party vibe wherever they appear. These diamond lattice-design goblets bring the same richness associated with red while shifting your outdoor entertaining game into an adult realm. Made from acrylic, they’ll be no shattering when a glass inevitably meets your brick patio.
Planters that palms find irresistible
These wavy, sea blue planters bring a coastal vibe to any setting, whether lined up on your tabletop or along your patio stairs. An immediate beachy upgrade, no matter how landlocked you may be.
A table where everyone–and we mean everyone–is welcome
Made of durable teak, this dining table with folding chairs melds informal, comfortable, practical, and fashionable. And it seats 8, which means there’s room for everyone on your safe list at the table. (Although you should probably order soon as our entire staff has been swooning over this set.)
