When it comes to hosting a dinner party, it’s not just what you eat that matters, but the setting you create. The crockery, table cloths, and glassware will all play an important role in creating the right atmosphere for your event. Fortunately, colored drinking glasses are all the rage at the moment, and they’re the perfect way to brighten up your tables.

In this article, we’d like to show you some of our favorite table setting ideas to help inspire you. How you use and combine your colored drinking glasses will have a huge impact on the overall tone you create. While pastel colors are perfect for creating a classical or romantic feel, greens and blues are ideal for those who want to go for a more daring look. For a rustic or boho style arrangement, why not go for deep, ocher tones? Any option can work well if you know how to combine it with the right materials and decorations.

If you prefer to keep things simple, this elegant and original table display is the option for you. Take a look – you’re going to love it!

Choose the color you want for your glassware, and make sure it matches the rest of the elements on your table, including the tablecloth, plates, bowls, flowers, and any other decorations. You can also play around with different tones to create something really special. For example, if you love the color pink, you could combine a mixture of fuchsia and pastel pink decorations, and arrange them on a neutral background.

Contrasting and even clashing color combinations can give your tables a really fun and relaxed feel, especially in summer. By incorporating a range of different colored drinking glasses, handmade ceramics, and fun, modern decorative elements, you can create a eclectic and original display. Don’t be afraid to experiment a little, and try new things!

Alternatively, you could take inspiration from the image below, and combine different colored glasses that all come from the same set. This vibrant display will fill your table with energy and life.

Creating contrast for those special moments

If you’ve got guests coming over, try to create a striking table arrangement that’ll blow them away. For example, you could use dark gray matte tableware, and combine it with burgundy drinking glasses. This combination is stunning and could be a great way to impress your guests.

You can then add a beautiful centerpiece to your table to complete the look. For example, a metal vase filled with exotic flowers is the perfect way to add a touch of elegance. In this case, we recommend choosing a plain tablecloth so that your glassware and crockery can take center stage.

If there’s one combination that never fails to turn heads, it’s this multi-colored pastel look. Combining a mixture of pastel blues, pinks, and yellows is a stunning way to create a romantic table setting with a distinctly Provencal air.

This is a great idea for summer gatherings with friends and family, especially if you’re eating out in the garden or on your terrace. Play around with natural elements in matching colors to add the perfect finishing touches.

Small vases of flowers, scented candles, and a beautiful liberty print table cloth are all great ways to decorate your table and capture the beauty of summer.

Creating the perfect table – hints and tips

Now that you know the different ways to use colored drinking glasses, it’s time to turn your attention to the rest of your table display. That way, you’ll be able to create the sense of harmony and style you crave.

  • Space is important when it comes to setting up your table. Ideally, each guest should have around 30 inches of space (24 inches minimum) to ensure they can eat comfortably.
  • When it comes to the place settings, these can vary between 15 and 18 inches in width and should allow enough space for plates, cutlery, and glasses.
  • Your glassware should be arranged in a straight line or a triangle formation. There should also be a different glass for each type of drink: water, white wine, and red wine. When facing the table, the water should sit to the left, and the red wine to the right.

In summer, you can enjoy a fun and stylish table display that all your guests will love. But don’t worry! If you’re planning a more formal occasion, these colored drinking glasses are also the perfect way to give your tables a touch of elegance and class.

Don’t be afraid to play around with all the different colors, and combine different tones and shapes to create a display that’s full of energy and charm. Go ahead and give it a try, and enjoy all the colors of summer.
