Top 10: Cute Crockery

These pieces of cute crockery will make sure you want to set the table for tea rather than settling for a TV dinner.

Marks & Spencer: British Range

We’re not normally fans of union jacks splashed everywhere but if anyone can do it tastefully it’s Marks & Spencer.  The British crockery range includes cups, bowls, a cake stand and more, and prices start from just £3.00 – get ready for your Jubilee party now.

Pedlars: Folkware

This 18-piece folkware set from Pedlars isn’t cheap at £295.00 but the eye-catching design should cheer you and your family up each time you sit down to eat.

Portmeirion: Heart Bowls

Some people hate heart-shaped crockery, deeming it twee and soppy – we love it and we’re not ashamed to say so. These heart-shaped bowls, available in various sizes and priced from £18.00 from Portmeirion, are made slightly less sickly due to being plain white.

Wilkinson: Floral Teal Dining Set

This very vintage-style dining set from Wilkinson proves you don’t have to spend loads to get a great look – it’s just £20 for 12 pieces.

Heal’s: Mini Moderns Whitby Plates

This nautical set, £20, from Heal’s makes us think of breakfast on the balcony overlooking the sea in summer. In England, we know the plates would probably blow away but we can dream.

Love Me Again: Royal Albert Teaset

This genuine vintage teaset, £45.00 from Love Me Again, will make you want to break out your vintage frocks and take tea properly rather than slurping it at your desk.

Debenhams: Harlequin Tea Plates

Reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland, these tea plates, £60.00 from Debenhams, would be perfect for a round of jam tarts or even Jammy Dodgers.

Lily and Lime Home: Button Cup and Saucer

This cup and saucer, £16.50 from NotOnTheHighStreet is perfect for the budding seamstress in your life.

Colloco: Festival Porcelain Espresso Cups Set

These gorgeous espresso cups, £19.95 from Colloco, should make getting out of bed in the morning just that little bit easier.

Lou Rota: Jewel Beetle and Pink Rose Side Plate

Bugs on plates should probably make us feel a little ill but they’re painted on so beautifully and in such nice tones, we’re totally swung by these plates, available in a wide range of designs from Lou Rota.
