We are trying to make the most of our short summer this year. We love to be outdoors during the summer! It’s always fun to do summer entertaining in the back yard! I love to do everything from the cooking to eating outside this time of year. That’s why I was excited to check out this strawberry melamine dinnerware and beautiful serving bowl from Target! I love the bright vibrant colors! They’re perfect with the bright colors of summer fruits and vegetables. Check it out!
They’re great for an outdoor picnic or luncheon. We used them for a quick poolside lunch earlier this week. Check out how nice they made the table look! Usually I’m setting out mismatched plastic plates, or paper plates. It was nice to have this beautiful set of strawberry patterned melamine to set the table with! They would be wonderful for a summer brunch, a cookout, family gathering or BBQ. They’d be just as great for indoor entertaining, like a summer birthday party, or luncheon.
I love these strawberry plates! They’re so bright and cheerful! I love the contrast and shades of the colors. They’re really bright and vibrant, especially in the brilliant summer sun.
Perfect for serving up a little strawberry and almond summer salad!

You can find all of these and more in the Target’s summer catalog and at stores nationwide. I really like the summer entertaining assortment it features bold graphics and vibrant colors on everything from tabletop pieces to backyard and picnic essentials to help you make the most of summer.
The serving bowl and bamboo serving utensils are my favorites! I love salad, especially during the summer when everything is fresh and delicious! I can make my salad ahead of time and store it in the bowl with the bamboo lid. Then whip it out in time for my summer party and serve it up with the bamboo serving utensils.
The salad I made for this lunch was super quick and easy. I just paired some spring greens with sliced strawberries and slivered almonds. I topped it with a light vinaigrette and it was delicious! My mother in law made the watermelon. She sliced it in half, and scooped out the inside with a small cookie dough scoop, then notched the edges. Both are super simple and light for a summer brunch!
Here’s a view of the entire layout:
Very festive and summer inspired don’t you think?
