Summer is right around the corner and with that comes lots of outdoor entertaining, including grilling, pizza parties, pool parties and BBQs. I found some of the most beautiful outdoor dinnerware, glassware (or should I say, acrylic ware?) and serving pieces that are sure to spruce up your table.

I’m loving these beautiful acrylic glasses. They come in so many colors, won’t break, and add a real pop to any tablescape. Mix and match with the Dakota line of bamboo melamine dinnerware from Anthropologie for a fabulous table. Multiple colors available like these bright Dakota Bamboo Melamine Bowls or Lavender Dinner Plates.

Serving wine, these acrylic wine glasses come in multiple pastel colors and will just dazzle in the summer sun.

Summer also means ice cream…lots and lots of ice cream!! If you haven’t invested in an ice cream maker, now might be the time. A good one will last a lifetime and is great to pull out every summer to make all kinds of treats. I like Cuisinart’s 1 1/2 Quart Classic Ice Cream Maker (the pink is kind of cute too!).

You’ll need all the accessories like ice cream scoopers, and fun ice cream dishes. Then try one of my two favorite ice cream recipes: Nutella Peanut Butter Ice Cream or Almond Milk Pistachio Ice Cream.

I am excited to partner with Flannery Beef out of San Rafael, CA. I’ve had the most incredible experience working with their steaks – so tender, so delicious and so big!!! 😂 Their ribsteaks are 3-inches thick and come in two sizes; 28-ounce and 32-ounce. If you want to dazzle dad this Father’s Day, try their Jorge Ribsteak. Check out my recipe for Reverse Seared Ribsteak with Herb Butter for the perfect steak!

Grilling season is here, and I’ve found all kinds of tools to make that just a little bit easier. These would make great Father’s Day gifts too. Everything is under $50 and perfect for a summer of grilling fun! The kabob grilling baskets are just $20 and will keep things from falling through the grates. If you want to have some fun on the grill, an outdoor popcorn maker is the way to go!
