Entertaining Ideas

Elevate Your Picnic Style

July is National Picnic Month! What better way to celebrate than by grabbing a blanket and spreading out along the grass? Even if a picnic under the sun isn’t your thing, you can still enjoy a meal outdoors with your family and friends. We have everything you need to make your set-up extraordinary, including dinnerware, drinkware, flatware and more. Let’s just say it’s everything but the basket…

Snacks In The Park

Call your closest friends for some easy finger food! Our Blue Bay dinnerware turns your picnic table into a modern work of art with its asymmetrical edges, organic textures and unique patterns. Serve up some shrimp on a dinner plate and use our snack bowl set for adding cocktail sauce, lemons and tartar sauce. And don’t forget the fruit! Bring along clementines, cantaloupe and papaya and lay it out on a hors d’oeuvre tray for your friends to enjoy!

Nighttime BBQ

Savor a never-ending dinner of beer and sliders in the moonlight with our Tuscany Classics glassware. The wheat beer glass set is the perfect go-to for enjoying refreshing summer beers. After a long day of backyard sunbathing, there’s nothing better than a late-night meal where you can take your time and enjoy the company and conversation. Just remember: drinks are a must!

A Romantic Evening

Give your date nights a much-needed makeover. Now’s the perfect time to enjoy a dinner for two while the weather is warm. Plan an intimate picnic as the sun sets with our Trianna dinnerware. This fashion-forward collection features subtle colors, clean lines and gold accents for a dazzling display. It’s a cute and modern take that sets the mood for a memorable evening.


Family Fun By The Water

Arrange a full spread next to the waves for you and your entire family! This picture-perfect picnic comes from @venicebeachqtpie, who brought along her Butterfly Meadow to the docks. The fresh, patterned plates fit in nicely with the bountiful display of fruits, veggies and baguettes. Take your cues from this Instagram-able shot and pack pillows and flowers in your picnic basket. It’s all about a relaxing day out with your favorite people!

What’s in your picnic basket? Do you like to dine outdoors or are you more of a eat-in-the-air-conditioning person (no judgment—we love it, too!) Share your stories and shots with us by tagging @lenox on Facebook or on Instagram!
