From barbeques to pool parties to picnics, summer entertaining centers around food. You almost can't entertain outdoors without food and, on that note, good dinnerware. The best outdoor dinnerware combines durable material and an affordable price tag, with party-worthy design being a plus.

With Amazon as your one-stop shop, you'll find that the following outdoor dinnerware, serving boards, serving bowls, trays, and table linens check all three boxes — and look more expensive than they are.

When you're eating outside, trade glass, ceramic, or porcelain dinnerware for durable, shatterproof plates and bowls. You can find an eye-catching selection of affordable melamine dinnerware on Amazon, including a 12-piece set of plates and bowls in summery blues and greens for just under $30. Accentuate your table with Mediterranean-inspired appetizer plates or salad plates printed with seasonal fruit illustrations. These eco-friendly bamboo plates, meanwhile, feature a tropical leaf pattern that's perfect for the time of year. And these bowls made of natural wheat straw come in five versatile colors.

Rather than risk damaging a beautiful but breakable serving bowl or tray, opt for materials like melamine, wood, and stainless steel. Melamine trays with intricate motifs — including an antique-inspired bird design and one that takes after Mexican Talavera pottery — will rival your best serveware. Display appetizers on wooden trays or a charcuterie board, naturally. A stainless steel bowl makes an excellent vessel for anything from salad to chips (we love this one's hammered finish), while a stainless steel bowl with a base for ice keeps guacamole and potato salad fresh even in sweltering weather.

Whether you're looking for placemats or a tablecloth, outdoor-friendly table linens add character and make cleanup a cinch. Natural Hand-Woven Water Hyacinth Placemats are a traditional but on-trend choice for summer and are easy to wipe down after use. Amazon also offers a wide selection of vinyl placemats, which can bring the table a pop of summery color or a festive outdoor cafe feel. Likewise, tablecloths made of textured linen or printed cotton, like classic checks or fresh florals, are excellent choices for the season, as well.
