How to host a casual summer gathering
Don’t wait for the perfect time
There’s never a perfect time to have people over. If you have room in your schedule and the weather is nice, why not have friends over this weekend?
Don’t clean your house
That’s right! This is a casual summer gathering, so come as you are. That goes for your home, too! It’s ok to pick up a little bit, but remember to make this gathering fun and stress-free for yourself, too.
Do add some fun music
Setting a casual, fun mood can also be done by adding great music to the mix!
Set the table (in a casual way)
Set out your Chinet Classic White products on your picnic table to have a gathering-ready feel! With strong products that are premium, sturdy, and convenient, the Chinet Classic White line is a great option for your casual summer gathering.
Make easy, delicious food
The food should be easy and delicious! Grill hamburgers, pasta salad, summer spinach salad, chips and dip, and a pie with ice cream. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Have an easy appetizer for your guests
While your guests are waiting for food, it’s a great idea to have a simple appetizer available for them (such as chips and guacamole). Also, be sure to have lots of drink options ready to go!
Use the Chinet Classic White line for easy, stress-free cleanup
Less time cleaning up equals more time with your guests, right? Chinet Classic White dinner plates (and the entire line) are a great option for easy and hassle-free cleanup. Simply toss whenever you’re done using them!
