If your January consisted of nights in on the sofa, little to no alcohol and a quiet social calendar, now is the time to get back to hosting duties and get some dinner parties and drinks with friends booked in the diary. All the more reason, then, to treat yourself to some pretty tableware pieces that will bring some joy to your next soiree. We’ve rounded up the best coloured glassware – it’s everywhere right now – to transform your place settings with minimal effort. Here are our favourites…
If, like us, you’re partial to an Insta scroll for pretty tablescaping ideas you’re going to love this interiors trend. Coloured glassware is having a moment, from martini glasses with statement stems to tumblers that are like their very own little works of art. If you’re looking to invest there are plenty of brands on the market right now, bringing some joyful colour and print to your favourite tipple. First up, La DoubleJ, the Californian fashion brand that have taken their vibrant, colourful prints and worked them into some stunning glassware pieces, using the highest quality Italian craftsmanship. We love the Murano glass duo in a popping raspberry pink that come in a retro shape reminiscent of ice cream sundae glasses. They’re not cheap but a interiors treat you’ll treasure forever.
Then there’s Mrs Alice and her whimsical collection inspired by her own love of hosting a decadent dinner party. Her adorable pink coral glasses come with a glass blush pink coral piece inside the glass to make even tap water feel appealing.
Sticking with the pink theme, Haygen’s blush rose martini vessels with dainty gold trim are too pretty to keep hidden in the cupboard – use them in an open bar shelf or bar cart to add character to your living or dining space.
Naturally, the high street has followed suit, from Anthropologie’s tortoiseshell-patterned neon yellow tumblers – the perfect juxtaposition to boho raffia placemats – to ARKET’s contemporary cool blue stripes designed by Dutch design studio Pols Potten.

We can imagine Betty Draper sipping on a dry martini out of these &K Amsterdam coupes. Display them pride of play in a glassware cabinet or on an at-home bar cart when not in use.
Add height and texture to your tablescape with Bitossi Home's mismatching glasses. The beauty lies in the fact that they're all a little bit different in colour and shape.
No one does tablescaping quite like Mrs Alice - she's made a whole brand out of the concept - and these adorable tumbler with pale pink glass coral sat inside will make even tap water seem appealing. Shop to add some charm to your dinner party table or take as a memorable gift for the host.
