There’s something about summer that makes us more prone to impromptu gatherings and casual feasts with friends.

And we always find that having people over is so much easier when you’ve already got a fridge full of fresh cherries and garden cucumbers, like we do in these warmer months!

We like to build our lives around community and being able to invite people into our lives and spaces without too much hassle or preparation. But when it comes to entertaining, practical serveware is a must.

Because our weekly trips to the market give us plenty of produce to choose from, the only thing left to do when we have people coming over is to collect some pretty bowls and plates to serve them in.

As always, with all the items we curate for June, we seek to find pieces that are as beautiful as they are practical.

Lately, we’ve seen a return to classic Terra Cotta Bowls and we love that this beautiful, earthy material is perfect for more than just potted plants.

Fill your light, sandy coloured bowl with dried fruit or flowers as a centrepiece or throw together a big summer salad! It’s great for both.

Giving guest options for snacking and sampling is also one of our favourite ways to entertain with less stress and without as much preparation required.

We love using our Hasami Porcelain Bowls that come in lots of different sizes to make our table look pretty and inviting.

And of course, what table would be complete without a beautiful pitcher. Fill it with sangria, punch, lemonade… the possibilites are truly limitless.

We absolutely adore the Seagrass Cage Pitcher for indoor and outdoor parties and gatherings. It’s a unique but stylish way to add texture to your table.

We’re constantly sourcing new and vintage pieces to help make entertaining a breeze and to keep your serveware looking fresh and beautiful.

We truly believe that spending time with others is one of the greatest joys in life – and a pretty table never hurts either!
