Opulent and affordable – this season’s must-have dinnerware
Vibrant shades and vivid botanical images make entertaining a feast for the eyes
There's nothing like a stunningly laid table to add the wow factor to your dinner party. And the new Butterfly House range from Sainsbury's is one of the most fabulous tableware ranges we’ve seen for a while.
For a start, the colours are jewel-rich, featuring deep vibrant blues and sumptuous pinks and purples, with delicious background shades of dark leafy greens. There are accents of gleaming gold too, making it the perfect choice for dining in style. What's more, a 12-piece Butterfly House dinner set costs just £40, so it really is a luxe for less investment.
Team it with elegant, gold-trimmed glassware, statement gold cutlery and chic tracework candleholders and you'll have a table fit for royalty.
Don't save it just for entertaining, though – there's a gorgeous gold-tipped teapot for one that's the perfect invitation to carve out a little time from your busy schedule to enjoy a cuppa. It's the perfect afternoon tea treat and, at just £12, it would make a gorgeous gift for some special friends, too.
It's not just the colours that are fabulous – the bold, feminine designs of vivid florals and butterfly motifs are equally gorgeous. We particularly love the generous blowsy roses on this Butterfly House Dinner Plate, £4, which is edged in gold.
Gold rims also feature on the glassware in this range such as this Wine Glass, £5, which will really gleam in your dinner party candlelight.
Finally, what could be more luxurious-looking than gold cutlery? This Butterfly House 16-piece Cutlery Set, £30, will instantly transform your dining table from ordinary to opulent.
Elegant and sophisticated, the Butterfly House collection for the dining room is right at the top of our wishlist for summer entertaining.
