When the weather is sunny and gorgeous, the last place you probably want to be is inside. There’s nothing like being outside on the perfect summer day — preferably with tasty snacks and a cold drink in hand. To make outdoor snacking the best experience, you of course need to have all of the right gear — and Dollar General has you covered. We just discovered the perfect set of plates for all your summer hangs.

Now sold at your local Dollar General, you can snag a gorgeous set of plates and cups for that incredible price of $1 per item. While there are a variety of classic plates to choose from, with wood and gold-painted accents, we’re particularly drawn to the smaller snack plates with designs of palms on the front. They make for the perfect accent to your table settings. And if you also grab a set of those gorgeous green cocktail glasses at Dollar General (yes, those are also sold for a dollar!), the plates match those as well.

Shoppers are loving these recent finds over at the Dollar Tree, praising how “cute” and “affordable” they are. Instagram user @m_is_for_mindy posted inspiration for a tablescape using her Dollar General finds, including these palm plates, claiming she was able to buy the entire set at under $15 total, thanks to Dollar General’s regular sales. “Perfect for a little outdoor picnic!” she writes.

Can’t find these particular plates at Dollar General? You can snag similar ones on their website! Dollar General is also selling tropical-inspired palm snack plates that you can order for pickup, also sold for $1 each. These plates are made from a nontoxic hard plastic, are easily stackable, and are microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

Now all you need to do is plan out your snacks and appetizers! We love serving up these fresh watermelon Popsicles and cold shrimp cocktail, and having a big batch of oven-baked ranch Chex mix to munch on when hosting a big crowd for cocktail hour.
