Food accessories so good that…is it starting to feel hot in here?
Oh, this lil dinner party? You just casually threw it together with some no-big-deal recipes (yes, we planned your signature cocktails and apps for you) and really (really) great taste in dishware and candles. It’s whatever.
You already know that if you serve food that’s gorgeous to begin with, it’s only going to get more gorgeous when you add sexy-ass glasses, serving dishes, and tumblers, and gold silverware to the spread. (You will be influenced to purchase a ceramic serving bowl in the shape of a sun by the end of this, trust us.) And you can’t forget about the decor. We’re talking about all the extras: candlesticks! vases! cheese boards! and everything else you need on your table.
Yes, these hand-blown glass and Italian china statement pieces aren’t cheap, if we’re being honest, (people making wedding registries, you’re welcome) but they’re a necessary investment toward becoming classiest party host imaginable. Plus, no one’s saying you only can use them when you’re having your six closest pals over for cocktails. If you wanna spice things up on a Monday night and bust out these dining accessories, no one’s stopping you.
So basically: Setting the mood with chic dishware and a tablecloth can give even mac n’ cheese Michelin vibes—here are the sexiest kitchen accessories and serveware options we could find to give you dinner party ideas for days.

Maybe you were tempted to plop your Brita filter on the table and call it a day. That’s fine, but you could opt for this sophisticated pitcher instead.
Whether you’re filling these with a nice heavy pour of pinot grigio or just plain water, your drinks will be looking super cute.
P.S. They are hand-blown glass and come in a set of two.
Genuinely, this is the best-looking knife I’ve ever seen. Def worth the splurge for slicing steak, cheese, or whatever you want to show off with.
Whenever you host a dinner, you wanna have cutting boards on hand that are pretty enough to leave out when guests arrive. Ya know, like this walnut one.
Candlesticks can feel kinda like something your parents got as a wedding gift, but not these squiggly ones. They come in a set of two in five different color options!
Where to put your squiggly candles, you ask? These guys. They double as a vase if you want to go with roses instead of a candlelit dinner.
These colored glasses are for gimlets, Manhattans, or daiquiris (the frozen kind from the grocery store are fine, if that’s your vibe).
Your flatware needs to be gold to go with this whole decadent vibe. It’ll make every place setting look infinitely better.
China on the table isn’t just for your grandma’s dining room. Plus this is from Italy, which automatically makes it more chic.
Don’t be surprised if your white dishes are jealous of this set that adds a pop of color to your table.
If you’re serving up cocktails featuring very little mixer, go with this set of classy glasses.
A real adult dinner party is not possible without flowers on the table. You can store your stems (silk or fresh!) in this super cool pink glass vase.
You could put your chips and salsa in a plastic bowl. But why would you when this vintage 1950’s ombré number exists?
Truthfully, this dish will be the center of your table, making any entrée you put in it appear even more delicious.
Though it may be a mini workout to carry this over to your dinner table, it makes any cheese you put on there instantly IG-worthy. One reviewer calls it “exquisite,” so there ya have it.
