What I love about outdoor entertaining is that it can still be classy and elegant.

One way is to bring your water goblets to the outdoors (make sure they are chunky or heavy duty), in either a large container, bowl, or basket.

Line with a clean towel.

I use my Dollar Store goblets all season long, for different kinds of dinner parties. Years ago I had several boxes of summer goblets of different colors, but I got tired of the space they took up so I pared down and gave them away.

Why not just use ONE CLASSIC water glass?

I often think we accumulate way too much STUFF.

I don’t go for the “unbreakable” dinnerware anymore, because it just takes up space. It’s not that far to carry out the dishes to my outdoor entertaining space, and trays also come in handy. I’ve yet to have anything break outside when entertaining. Have you?

What are your thoughts on having too many entertaining supplies, and would “one” glass for all entertaining purposes work for you?
