From boldly printed platters that sing summer to fun tropical dishes perfect for serving up fresh, crisp greens and salads to bowls for dips and snacks. Take your summer afternoons to the next level with beautiful serving essentials.

Sip It

Impress friends and family at your stylish BBQ with on-trend glassware. No summer party or alfresco lunch is complete without sipping on a fresh and fruity punch, iced tea or glass of bubbles.

Make a splash and jazz up your ice cubes by adding fresh berries or freeze fruit juice and add to your favourite fizz for the ultimate summer cooler. There’s nothing more stylish than serving smoothies from glass mason jars or oversized kilner jars. This is a great way to make sure your guests’ glasses are never empty – it’s easy for them to top up their own.

Top your glass of fizz with fresh strawberries and berries for that full-on summer flavour.

Enjoy It

There’s nothing more enjoyable than relaxing in your own space so make the most of your outdoors this summer with comfortable accessories and stylish dining essentials.

Cook up a delicious storm with great barbecues at Argos, from classic and cool models to sleek and simple, there’s a barbecue for every budget. Upgrade your garden with the most comfortable and convenient in furniture like old school beach deckchairs for that cool touch or camping chairs that easily fold away for quick storage in case the weather turns!

For more casual days, bring out beautifully patterned side tables from Carraig Donn, perfect for dishing up snacks or drinks this summer.
