Salad servers and melamine dinner sets? It must be summer!

Nothing says summer like bright flowers blowing in the balmy breeze. Our Hazy Days range of salad servers, outdoor dinner sets, tea towels and more captures the summer spirit with sunshine yellow flowers against a vibrant teal to brighten up the warmer months, outdoors and in.

Whether you’re firing up the barbecue or baking for a summer celebration, we’re here to help. Our Hazy Days kitchen linen adds a jolly touch to summer food prep, with melamine dinnerware to match.

Summer salads

When it’s too hot to spend hours at the cooker, salads make simple and delicious solutions. From the traditional mixed salad of green leaves, sliced cucumber and tomatoes drizzled with lemon and olive oil to a warm and flavoursome couscous, quinoa and feta salad, there’s an endless range of options to rustle up, and you’ll find plenty to choose from over at our blog. When it comes to serving summer salads, Our Hazy Days salad servers and bowl are picture perfect and practical. Made from extra tough melamine with a summery design, they’re ideal for al fresco dining but look just as good indoors on the dinner table, too.

Kitchen kitsch

Why limit the summer sunshine to the outdoors when you can add a splash of colour in the kitchen, too? The funky flowers and bright colours of our Hazy Days kitchen linen will lift your spirits: we’ve got aprons, tea towels and oven gloves to choose from, or perhaps you’ll invest in the whole set for maximum retro appeal. Our soft and absorbent kitchen towels come in pack of two, each with a different design from the Hazy Days range - one tea towel features the bright yellow retro flowers; the other a teal polka dot pattern.

Barbecue weather

Summer is the season for outdoor celebrations: the weather’s warming up and we’re finally seeing the sunshine. Time to dust off the barbecue for a spot of outdoor dining? We’ve got lots of barbecues and outdoor ovens in our wide range here at Lakeland, as well as outdoor dinnerware sets with summery designs that are perfect for serving your char-grilled creations. Our retro Hazy Days melamine plates are ideal, in two sizes for meals or snacks (or to hold adult or kid-sized portions), but we’ve also got entire melamine dinner sets if you’re planning a party with puddings, too.

Pack a picnic

Make the most of those long summer days by enjoying all the great outdoors has to offer. From beach breaks to walks at local beauty spots, getting out and about in nature is a fun and free summer activity - even better if it involves a picnic. Pick up a cool bag and pack it with homemade treats and sandwiches, and when you’ve found the perfect spot, spread out your picnic blanket and lay out our Hazy Days melamine plates, crockery and tumblers. They’re as practical as they are pretty as well as being dishwasher safe, which means you can relax when you return home without worrying about the washing up.
