21 Plates Perfect for a Dreamy Al Fresco Dinner Party
As we settle into the warming weather, dining en plein air is one of the easiest ways to get out of the house and spend some time with family and friends. Hosting an outdoor party doesn't mean skimping on setting the table especially with so many beautifully patterned tableware options available these days that are made specifically with al fresco occasions in mind.
Plates made of melamine, tin, and acrylic are formulated for outdoor wear and tear yet still look beautiful enough for your chicest outside soiree. They are designed to be shatter-proof when moving about the patio, scratch-resistant, kid-friendly, and lightweight enough to carry in a picnic basket. From designs that lean into their materials like fanciful acrylic bowls to melamine plates that look like real ceramics, the variety of designs are vast and playful to inspire your next alfresco gathering.
