With beautiful weather and summertime right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about outdoor entertaining! Whether you have a sprawling backyard or a small balcony, plenty of ways exist to create a beautiful and functional outdoor space for hosting guests. At The Pineapple Girls, we believe every outdoor entertaining space should be both stylish and practical. In this blog post, we’ll be sharing our top outdoor entertaining essentials, from furniture to decor to dining pieces.
1. FABULOUS FURNITURE FINDS
The right outdoor furniture can transform your space into a comfortable and inviting oasis. When choosing outdoor furniture, consider the size of your space and the number of guests you’ll be hosting. If you have a larger space, a sectional or outdoor sofa can provide ample seating. Our Cabana Collection offers style and outdoor-grade quality with its marine-grade birch wood frame & 100% acrylic Sunbrella fabric slipcover that is durable and washable.
For a smaller space, opt for chairs and a small table. Our Newport Barrel Chair is timeless and beautiful. Handwoven in UV-resistant N-dura™ resin wicker for long-lasting enjoyment! This chair pairs perfectly with the Newport Ottoman or one of our new favorites, the Devante Accent Table. This petite table is made for outdoor entertaining, handcrafted from twisted faux wicker and built to withstand varied elements and temperatures. The perfect choice for drinks on the patio or by the pool!

Adding outdoor decor can instantly elevate your entertaining space. Think about incorporating outdoor rugs, lanterns, and throw pillows in coordinating colors and patterns. The Pineapple Girls are pleased to offer NEW outdoor pillows by John Robshaw to our in-store and online collection.
These beautiful prints are resistant to both sun and rain for long-lasting use in your outdoor space. Another great option for eye-catching designs and whimsical patterns is our Gray Malin Outdoor Pillows. For decorative accessories to style in your covered outdoor sitting area, we recommend our rattan lanterns both a part of our last-chance sale. For a functional touch, consider installing a chandelier in your space. Our designers love to use the Denison Lantern in covered patios, made from a hammered wrought-iron fixture and available in small, medium, or large.

When it comes to outdoor dining, it’s important to have the right pieces for both functionality and style. Melamine or acrylic dishes are great options for outdoor dining as they are lightweight and durable. Our Mario Luca Giusti Lente highballs and tumblers offer a truly unique look and are made from unbreakable crystal clear acrylic, perfect for entertaining around the pool. Also available in a large Salad Bowl or set of 6 snack bowls.
Melamine dinnerware is another popular choice as it is lightweight and easy to clean, making it ideal for picnics or backyard barbecues. Shown below is our popular Bamboo Chip & Dip Bowl, Blue Bamboo Dinner Plates (Set of 4), and Green Bamboo Lunch Plates (Set of 6).
For those looking for a more classic and versatile option, our ocean blue or crisp white enamel plates are the ideal choice for outdoor dining. Made from high-quality materials, these plates can withstand extreme heat and are great for use outdoors or indoors. They are perfect for casual gatherings or elegant outdoor dinner parties.
Creating a beautiful and functional outdoor entertaining space is all about choosing the right pieces. At The Pineapple Girls, we believe that outdoor furniture, decor, and dining pieces can all work together to create an inviting and stylish space. With these essentials, you’ll be well on your way to hosting the ultimate outdoor soirée.
