The blues of the ocean and Summer swimming lakes are inspiring me to add a little azure to my tabletop this season. I've rounded up plenty of pretty options, from affordable glasses and carafes for everyday use to splurges for special occasions.
Perhaps for the most special occasion of all is the glass pictured in the upper left-hand corner. BHLDN's Lapis Toasting Flutes ($198 for a set of two) would add a dramatic touch to a Summer wedding. At 10 inches, these tall, hand-cut flutes are perfect for a wedding toast, and toasting for special dinners or moments over a lifetime. For a more affordable option, invest in Diane von Furstenburg "High Rise" White Wine Glasses Set in Erawan Blue ($60 for a set of four, bottom left). Inspired by the urban skyline, they'd look equally pretty on a country farm.
For iced tea or lemonade, go with a more substantial glass, like the Murano Speckled Tumbler ($28) from Anthropologie, paired with the Ypsilon Glass Carafe Sky Blue by Bormioli Rocco ($12, bottom right). If you're part of a household that includes clumsy spouses or on-the-go kiddos, consider the La Cadeaux Polycarbonate Water Glass ($5, upper left), which is immune to most drops.
