Thank you to Walmart and LTK for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
Summer is in full swing and with the warm weather and sun, we want to get outside and have fun! Summer is a great time to get together with family and friends and the best way to celebrate summer is with great food, Summer-themed decorations and refreshments. #WalmartPartner #WalmartSummer #WelcomeToYourWalmart #WalmartFinds
When it comes to preparing for your Summer celebrations and get togethers, you want everything to look great for your family and friends, but where do you start? Walmart is the perfect one-stop destination for everything you need: serving pieces, decorations, food, plus outfits to wear to your celebrations and parties! Shop these items on Walmart for your Summer Gatherings. You can also stock up for your July 4th celebrations on Walmart!
First, I decided on a theme for my get together. Since it is the first of the Summer, I wanted a “Summer Celebration” theme to kick off the Summer season. I went to Walmart and found the most darling dinnerware serving pieces for my backyard table. I bought this Mainstays Watermelon Dip Bowl Set, which includes a serving tray in the shape of a long watermelon, along with 3 coordinating bowls for dips. It is BPA free and is dishwasher safe. I also needed a tray, so I bought this Mainstays 15-inch Bamboo Melamine Fruit Decorated Serving Tray. I planned to serve my refreshing Peach Sweet Tea, so I bought this Mainstays 2.5 Quart Double Wall Clear Pitcher, along with a few of these adorable Mainstays 19oz. “Hello Summer” Stemless Wine Glasses, which are so cute for serving iced tea! To bring the look together, I purchased this Mainstays PEVA Tablecloth in a similar teal blue color; I also LOVE this Yellow Lemon Pattern PEVA Tablecloth on Walmart! I bought the food I wanted to serve in my dinnerware pieces and then set my table, Easy-Peazy!
You can also order online, then use Walmart’s Curbside Pickup on your online checkout to easily pick up your order!
I decided the food and refreshments I wanted to serve, then I purchased them and easily prepared them in the dinnerware I bought from Walmart. I placed everything on the Mainstays PEVA Tablecloth and the celebration was ready to begin! In the Mainstays Watermelon Dip Bowl Set, I added strawberries and grapes to the long dish, then three kinds of fruit dip in the bowls. I placed watermelon and cantalope on the Mainstays 15-inch Bamboo Melamine Fruit Decorated Serving Tray. I poured my Peach Sweet Tea in the Mainstays 2.5 Quart Double Wall Clear Pitcher and served it in the Mainstays 19oz. “Hello Summer” Stemless Wine Glasses.

Everything in my outfit is budget-friendly and ready to order on Walmart!

If you need a refreshing sweet tea recipe this Summer, you will love my Peach Sweet Tea recipe (see below)! You make it like regular sweet iced tea, then add fresh pureed peaches! The combination of the cold sweet tea and freshly blended peaches is so delicious and perfect for your Summer parties! I’ll be making my peach sweet tea throughout the summer and serving in my Mainstays 2.5 Quart Double Wall Clear Pitcher and Mainstays 19oz. “Hello Summer” Stemless Wine Glasses. Print my recipe below to keep and you can also Pin it for later.
