Outdoor Dining and Serving Pieces

Take outdoor dining up a notch and throw a dinner party! 

Eating outdoors tends to be a casual affair - paper plates, solo cups, hot dogs, and corn on the cob. But every once in a while we like to take it up a notch and throw a real dinner party outside. Bring out the tablecloth, wine glasses, candles, and serving pieces for a more sophisticated evening. The Olive Scene is here to help with the menu, ingredients, AND the serving platters.

One of our favorite new summer products is our dip chiller (pictured above), which is perfect for keeping dairy or mayonnaise-based dips cold on hot days. Fill the base with ice and place the bowl on top, filled with your favorite dip. Try our creamy pesto dip or tyrokafteri, a traditional Greek feta and red pepper spread.

A refreshing cocktail is always a welcome addition to a dinner party. The Olive Scene not only carries cocktail glasses, but you can also find a guide to using our balsamic vinegars in summer cocktails here

Browse our recipe page or talk to one of our knowledgeable sales associates for entrees and sides that go beyond hamburgers and corn on the cob. We're eating our star spangled salmon with grilled snap peas all summer long. And one of our go-to recipes is our Espresso Balsamic marinated flank steak.

Don't forget about dessert! We've got you covered there, too. Keep the grill working with grilled pineapple ice cream sundaes, or make a beautiful fruit salad with a drizzle of your favorite sweet balsamic vinegar.

Stop by your local The Olive Scene store to see our new Dip Chillers in person, and check out our full selection of beautiful serving ware while you're there! We also have strawberry-shaped bowls, nautical-themed mollusk platters, a white platter with silver artichoke handles, gorgeous cheese boards, and lots of other unique serving pieces to make your outdoor dinner party a beautiful event.
