Summer Cookout Essentials

| July 5, 2019
Summer is in full swing and we’re taking advantage of the longer days! What better way to spend those extra hours of daylight than with a summer cookout? Maybe you’ve thrown your big 4th of July bash already, but it’s never too late to heat up the grill and enjoy a relaxing evening with friends and family. From food to dinnerware to outdoor chairs and decor, we have what you need to throw a summer soiree everyone will be talking about!

Every summer party should be: easy, relaxed, and fun! You can trust that when you shop at Carolina Pottery, you’ll be able to find the items you need in the styles you love and at the price your bank account will thank you for! Spend your time focusing on your family and friendships and leave the party set up to us!

We’ve broken down our cookout essentials so you can run into your local Carolina Pottery, grab the items you need, and get the grill going!

WINE: Start by grabbing a bottle of wine from our fabulous wine selection! Choose from merlots, cabernets, pinot noirs and more. Don’t forget to check out our local wines as well. They are a customer favorite and are perfect to take to any gathering as a hostess gift.

FOOD: Of course you’ll want something to munch on while you sip your wine! Summer cookouts should be relaxing and easy. Save yourself time with our selection of yummy speciality foods. Stock up on our Biltmore collection of jellies, dips mixes, and salad dressings to throw together a yummy appetizer in just a few minutes. Pull out our Salem Baking cookies and cheese straws for a quick finger food option that tastes homemade!

DRINKWARE: Once you’ve selected your favorite white wine and dip mix, you’ll want to keep your drink chilled in one of our wine tumblers! If you prefer a real glass, shop our rows of drinkware options including wine glasses, beer mugs, drinking glasses, plastic cups, and tumblers. You can even find accessories like wine glass charms, coozies, corkscrews, wine stoppers, ice buckets, pitcher, drink dispenser and more.

DINNERWARE: If you’re opting for a nicer option than paper plates, you’ll want to check out our boxed dinnerware sets! Keep it classic with our white dinnerware collection that starts at just $0.99/each! You’ll be able to serve your guests with real plates, not worrying about messing up your nice dinnerware, and you’ll be right on budget!

OUTDOOR FURNITURE: Once you have your food and drinks taken care of, you’ll want to be sure to have a comfortable place for everyone to sit! When it comes to outdoor furniture, we’ve got you covered! We have a large selection of wicker including four piece collections, swings, rockers, sectionals, and deep-seated sets. Our cushion collection is extensive with every color and pattern you can imagine! Another outdoor furniture option is our polywood collection. This is easy to maintain and weather resistant. It is constructed from recycled materials and will not rot, corrode or warp. You can customize your furniture by choosing one of dozens of available colors or even select two colors for a truly custom look! Mix and match your Adirondacks, bar stools or table! Our teakwood collection is marine grade and even has a cooler in the middle of the table! If you would rather, you can remove the cooler pan and insert an umbrella. And don’t forget our egg chairs! They’re a fun and popular outdoor seating choice this summer!

MISC: While we’ve covered the basics, there are still so many more items you can find for your cookout at Carolina Pottery. Serving platters, cocktail napkins, table clothes, placemats, hand towels, cast iron dinnerware, kitchen utensils, outdoor pillows, candles, lanterns, string lights, centerpieces, and more!
Hopefully this list gives you a good start to get your cookout started. Stop into your local Carolina Pottery today and browse our selection of items. Happy grilling!
