Create an aquatic-themed setting that captures the serenity of the beach, with light blues, seaglass greens and airy whites. Teeming with sea life patterns, our Captiva melamine dinner sets are perfect for those casual dinner parties with friends. Add our Aurora glasses in Seaglass for that dreamy, beachy look.

Throw a clambake for family and friends with a fun, nautical-inspired setting. Essential items for a clambake? Our Portsmouth platter (for big lobsters) and serving bowl (great for steamed mussels and clams). Add some coastal accents and seashell decor for that extra oceanside feel.

Hamptons style is all about light and airy color palettes paired with cool neutral shades and muted blues. And you don’t have to live in the Hamptons to recreate that chic beach-inspired setting. Set the tone with our Hampton Toile melamine dinnerware for a calm yet captivating dinner party.

Turn your backyard party into an authentic island-inspired celebration. One of our favorite ways to impress guests is creating a delicious ‘pupu platter,’ which consists of everything from pork ribs and spicy shrimp to dumplings, fresh mango and chicken drumettes. Plate it on our Zen leaf platters for an irresistible presentation.
