Can you ever get enough backyard barbecues over the summer? We didn’t think so. Grilling outside is such a fun way to cook and entertain during the hot weather months. Easy cleanup, plus no need to heat up the oven.

Casual is the key to outside entertaining, so we’re all about buffet style. Here are a few pointers to create a great flow for your guests as they’re filling their plates.

Always set out your stack of plates to the far left at the front of the table. We used a vibrant, summery color palette of Turquoise, Poppy and new color Daffodil.

Then set out your salads and side dishes, like a garden salad, fruit salad and chips or potato salad. Our Bistro Bowls in various sizes are great for serving a crowd!

Then comes the main attraction — the meat! Place it right in the middle of the table on a special platter like our Square Handled Serving Tray.

Don’t forget utensils and napkins. We wrapped our Fiesta Flatware in a napkin and tied it with a few strands of raffia. That way, guests won’t need to juggle their plates in addition to loose utensils and napkins. Everything’s in a neat little, easy-to-carry package. To keep it super casual, we used colorful bandanas as napkins for this buffet setting.

Last but definitely not least is an icey cold beverage. Our 2+ gallon Beverage Server is the perfect addition to any backyard soiree. It’s great for serving lemonade, fruit infused water or iced tea.

Fiesta Floral Bouquet Collection

Back in January, we showed you all our newest Fiesta decorated collection: Floral Bouquet. The pattern was perfect to get us through those dreary winter months, and now that it’s spring, it’s an absolute tabletop essential! While we’ve featured our Luncheon Plate in the collection, we wanted to show off  all of the elements of our Floral Bouquet line up.

You’ve already seen (and fallen in love with) our fabulous floral Luncheon Plates, but how about those floral insulated tumblers? These are ideal for the upcoming weather when you’d give anything for an ice cold drink! You can find them here in a 16 oz Tumbler, 9 oz Stemless Wine Glass and Stemmed Wine Glass.

When you find your table could still use more flowers, reach for our Floral Bouquet linens. You can take your pick between Napkins, Placemats, multiple sizes of Tablecloths, or all of the above! These linens are for indoor and outdoor use, so feel free to use them for pretty picnics and indoor celebrations alike.

Once you have all of the accompaniments, you won’t want to forget the Luncheons! At 9 inches, these beauties are perfect for any meal, and give your table the perfect pop of color and whimsy.
