My ideal summer dining experience typically involves a beautifully decorated tablescape littered with florals of all shades and a buffet of never-ending canapés served under the shade of a mature and well-manicured oak tree. The cool breeze flowing through the canopy, carrying the thick fragrance of hickory-perfumed barbecue ribs, and the vibes are exceptionally high. Doesn’t that sound like a dream?

Whether you prefer a quaint, relaxing picnic in a sprawling field of daisies or you’re more of the martini and prosciutto-wrapped dates type, there’s no better time than summer to enjoy a delicious meal al fresco. Of course, to do so, you might need a few additional pieces of equipment, and aside from a mega cute retro-inspired picnic basket and handy beverage dispensers, you’ll also need a sturdy set of plates.

Sure, you could grab a cheap, flimsy set of paper plates, but who wants to end up with baked beans all over their shirt when the plate inevitably buckles under the weight of your second pass at your uncle's famous grilled chicken wings? Thankfully, Sam’s Club has the perfect solution, and it comes straight from their trusty signature Member’s Mark brand. Now, you won’t have to worry about spilling the beans, thanks to the stunning 12-Piece Member’s Mark Bamboo Melamine Dinnerware Set—and it’s so pretty, you’ll want a set in every color.


This beautiful and modern set of dinnerware is the perfect accouterment for your summer dinner tablescape, and the plates are made of super sturdy melamine mixed with bamboo powder, ensuring they last for all the dinners to come. Included in the set, you’ll receive four 10.83-inch dinner plates, four 8.23-inch salad plates, and four 7.44-inch bowls.

Additionally, you can choose between a whopping eight different colorways, with choices like navy, sea glass, blue, and cream offering contrasting accent plates. In contrast, solid cream, solid blue, and woodgrain are more uniform, but equally as beautiful as the other color choices. And the solid cream option is quite reminiscent of a certain sand color Pottery Barn style that's 10 times more expensive.

In terms of care, you’ll want to skip the microwave with these; however, they are dishwasher-safe and break-resistant. Even better than their looks and endless usability, is the wildly low price of just $19.98 for the entire set! If you’re doing the math, that works out to just over $1.66 per plate—which is a steal, considering how gorgeous the plates are. At that price, the set pays for itself after just two uses versus grabbing a pack of disposable plates every time you have a function.

Now, there’s no reason not to turn your summer dining dreams into a reality. All we ask is that you save us a plate.
