Cheerful tableware to add colour to any summer gathering

From family gatherings to drinks with friends, this bright tableware will make it feel like an occasion.

When we think of summer, what immediately comes to mind is all the opportunities to get together with our favourite people. From family barbecues to parties that spill out into the back garden, the season offers up plenty of opportunities to entertain.

And even the most casual gathering will be elevated by a few pieces of carefully chosen tableware. Bright colours feel perfect for warm days, and will immediately add a touch of fun.

Here are some pieces to bring some zing, from zesty yellows to cheerful pinks.

Green

Whether it’s a bright lime or a deep forest, green is such a versatile shade. Pair with neutrals for a grounded mood, or go more-is-more and colour clash with other brights.

Yellow

Enamel tumblers, set of 2, €28, Matilda Goad & Co

Whether bright and zesty or soft and buttery, yellow immediately conjures a summer feeling.

Pink 

Small glass bowl, €7.99, H&M

There’s so many shades of pink to choose from, it can create a whole range of moods from soft and subtle to zingy and fun.

Blue

Baby Blue Wine Glasses, set of 2, €29.99, Stone + Beige

Reminiscent of a sparkling ocean on a hot day, blue is a wonderfully serene shade, and pairs well with other colours.
