Summer is served
Did somebody say party? Nothing quite says street party like a glass of Pimms. So dust off that Deluxe Cocktail Shaker, scavenge your herb garden for that garnish of mint and get ready to serve your delicious drinks in our range of glassware. Hand-blown and crafted from recycled glass, our Copper Recycled Glass Tumbler guarantees compliments when you're entertaining while our Galaxy 5 Piece Cocktail Kit helps you to mix up the perfect drink to share with your friends, family and neighbours.
Whether your street is planning to host a traditional street party or branching out and offering a barbeque, it’s time to update your tableware collection for the summer season with some new pieces in neutral colourways. Our Shoreline range has been updated with a unique milky speckled glaze and hand-dipped earthenware terracotta rim, bringing natural tones to your dining set-up. Use them to serve everything from Coronation chicken sandwiches and Scotch eggs to the all-important Victoria sponge cake and scones with jam and clotted cream. The pale hue of the tableware ensures your meals will pop against the muted backdrop, making them perfect for the Instagram shots of the day.
