If you’re keen to switch up your dinner table setup this summer then I’d like to suggest incorporating some colorful glassware pieces. From wine glasses to salad bowls, tinted tableware looks both elegant and playful but is actually really easy to blend with your current decor. 

Whether you’re dining alfresco or indoors, adding some colorful glassware is probably the easiest way to make your dinner table feel more cheerful and elevated, and we’re seeing some beautiful styles everywhere right now. It just makes me feel happier when I use it, like I've made added a burst of cheer to the table that guests can't help but smile at.

Estelle and LA doubleJ are a couple of standout brands to note which excel in color-tinted glasses, bowls, and more – but Our Place, Anthropologie, and many of our other favorite home decor stores also have some brilliant options ATM. So I’ve rounded up the very best in colorful glassware for your summer table.

If you’re after a sophisticated dinner table setup, then neutral and neutral-adjacent tones are the way to go. Deeper shades like brown, deep yellow, and even burgundy and green all work very well here. These sorts of hues give a vintage feel to the glassware which feels very elevated. They will also work for any season, so are the perfect example of timeless decor!

On the other hand, if you want to make a statement with bright pops of color, this playful take on glassware works very well for warmer seasons like spring and summer. Whether you go for soft pastel hues or unapologetic color clashing like the La DoubleJ pieces above, brighter colors are sure to catch the eye and make your table feel more cheerful.
