Outdoor Glasses for Your Next Patio Dinner Party

Entertain on your patio with outdoor glasses. These glasses are excellent for outdoor gatherings because they're crafted from break-resistant materials and come in many styles. Having a separate set of drinkware for outdoor use ensures your everyday and special-occasion drinkware won't incur damage. Plus, there's just something festive about having special glasses for outdoor parties.

Types of Outdoor Drinkware

Outdoor glasses are crafted from durable, shatterproof acrylic and come in a variety of styles and colors to suit your preferences. Check out at some of the different types of outdoor drinkware from which you can choose:

  • Tumblers: One of the most versatile types of acrylic glasses you can have are tumblers. This glass style is large enough to hold water, tea, juice or a mixed drink. Some tumblers accommodate up to 20 ounces of liquid.
  • Rocks Glasses: Old-Fashioned and double Old-Fashioned glasses are examples of rocks glasses that you may want for your patio. They hold between 6 and 14 ounces on average, depending on which style you choose.
  • Wine Glasses: No outdoor drinkware set is complete without acrylic wine glasses. Whether your preference is a crisp Chardonnay or a full-bodied Merlot, the right wine glass can enhance your enjoyment of the vintage.
  • Margarita Glasses: The next time you serve chips and salsa, consider pairing them with margaritas served in a salt-rimmed glass. Pottery Barn has acrylic margarita glasses made especially for this popular cocktail.

Caring for Your Acrylic Glasses

In addition to being highly resistant to breakage, acrylic glasses are easy to care for. The material is relatively stain-resistant and cleans up easily with warm water and mild dish detergent. You'll want to hand-wash your acrylic drinkware, as it's not dishwasher-safe.

Pieces to Coordinate with Outdoor Glasses

There are lots of coordinating pieces for your outdoor drinkware that you can find at Pottery Barn. Pick up a drink dispenser so guests can refill their glasses as needed. These dispensers come in several different styles and have handy spouts. There are also acrylic pitchers in the selection, which work great for everything from water and tea to punch and mixed drinks.

Other pieces you might want to consider for outdoor entertaining include plates, bowls and platters crafted from acrylic or another break-resistant material, such as melamine.
