Springtime means the return of outdoor entertaining, an influx of wedding celebrations, and graduation parties galore. If you're hosting this season and are looking to add some extra oomph to your tabletop, we can't be bigger fans of colored glassware. And, as it turns out, designers love it, too.
"Colored glassware conjures up happy images and is perfect for spring when people are re-emerging to outdoor life, entertaining, and eating al fresco," designer Lina Galvao says. "I love blue colored glass as a solid classic option, though I’ve seen tons of new intros to the market in a blushy mauve tone, which is super elegant and more subdued. Colored glassware is definitely a great way to inject personality to a tablescape or to a casual dinner on the patio, and is a great item to debut in the spring!"
Designer Sophie Williamson agrees. "Color is thankfully making such a comeback—but not everybody feels comfortable mixing and matching patterns and colors," she shares. "In that, glassware is a great starter; almost like a colorful throw pillow can be a great first step towards more color in your living room, so can glassware add that new pop of color to your table!"
Not to mention, colorful glass can be used in other rooms of the house beyond one's kitchen and dining space. "It also can serve as a great pop of color and vase for some blooms in the bathroom," designer Ariel Okin shares.

Estelle Glass Hand Blown Cocktail Coupes
Who wouldn't want to sip champagne out of a pink coupe while lounging on the back patio? Estelle Colored Glass, a Black-owned, female founded company, is known for its elegant glassware that comes in a wide array of hues and is perfectly vintage inspired and sweet. While on the pricier side, the pieces make for excellent birthday or wedding gifts, too. Grab a set of two or six, your recipient is sure to be wowed.
DuraClear DuraClear Titan Faceted Drinking Glasses Set
Ok, so these glasses aren't actually made from glass—they're constructed out of a shatter-proof plastic. This makes them especially wonderful for outdoor activities, and you won't have to worry about little ones using them, either. The colorful set of six would also look nice and cheery displayed on open kitchen shelving or used as decor. As designer Caroline Brackett states, "Buy colored glassware and use it! It is also great to accessorize with or use for flower arrangements—doesn't have to be saved for the dining table!"
Anthropologie Ramona Coupe Glasses Set
These colorful coupe glasses are nice and funky! They're perfect for showcasing that ultra-colorful cocktail you've been waiting all winter to whip up, for one. They'll also look great clustered on your bar cart when they aren't in use, which is an extra bonus.
Hay Tint Wine Glasses Set
These two-toned tinted glasses (say that three times fast!) come in a handful of color combos, so there's something for everyone (or you could mix and match a couple of sets on your own tabletop). We're especially loving the blue and clear color combination, though, which really has us feeling the springtime spirit.
Etsy Colorful Champagne Glass Set
If you love all things glam, these champagne glasses are calling your name and will make even the most impromptu celebrations feel like a total treat. Cheers to sunny days ahead!
Hawkins New York Essential Glassware Set
Place this glassware set on your kitchen island or even on your bedside table—wherever it will remind you to drink more water! Then, when friends stop by, relocate it to your dining area so that everyone's glass stays full throughout the evening. Don't be afraid to pair bright and colorful pieces with more subdued linens, either. "Colored glass can work in almost any tablescape but I do particularly love it layered on a neutral palette, where it really shines," designer Sarah Lederman says. "I tend to gravitate towards mixing textures in my tablescapes."
Bohemia Crystal Multicolor Engraved Wine Glasses
Colored stems plus clear glasses equals a perfect combo for those looking for a drinking vessel that's part vibrant, part minimalist. Each glass features some mod etchings, too—we're all about the beautiful subtlety.
