Update your kitchen accessories in time for entertaining season

Update your kitchen accessories in time for entertaining season

We know that annual December event might be too early to mention, but updating your kitchen in preparation for cosy nights in with select friends and home-cooked meals, is always a good idea. 


As the evenings get progressively more wintery, we can’t help but turn our thoughts to the coming season, and everything that is going to come with it this year. We love to give our kitchen a little update for this entertaining season, but that doesn’t have to mean spending thousands on new units.

Kitchen accessories and details really add to the overall feel of your space, and often take centre stage on your table. A beautiful serving dish, coffee pot or set of napkins won’t just look nice for guests, but will also bring a little joy every time you use them.

Sage advice 

This earthenware pot has a clean, contemporary design, and also is designed to ensure even heat distribution for perfect hearty stews. Its sage green shade will also add a soft mood to your kitchen, and would complement a range of other colours. Sambonet Terra Cotto Casserole 23.5cm, €105, The Triggerfish Cookshop.

We love having dishes that are pretty enough to bring to the table, and these speckled designs from Habitat certainly fit the bill. Available in a round or rectangular design, they’re hand-finished in Portugal. Perdita cookware, around €23 each, Habitat.
