To celebrate the new collection, director and designer Cindy-Lee Davies has pulled together her tips for summer entertaining, to bring you and your guests together for a relaxed meal in the garden or the dining room.

+Mixed materials  – I have always loved a mix of textures, I have always loved a mix of textures and materials on my table, rather than a matching China set.

+Start from the centre – A centre feature piece is always a highlight, even for a small gathering, which is why I’ve been making vessels that work as feature pieces since 2005. You don’t need to go crazy with flowers either, this year I’ll be paring the greenery back to simple Australian native foliage.

+ Multi-task – Let your tabletop items multi-task. A small salt and pepper bowl can add a bit of colour to your table, and can hold anything from condiments to candles to a trail of spices as a feature.

In contrast to the earthy vessels, 20 new spoons hand-crafted in brass, scissors, nutcrackers and four new salad servers in brass and silver are available for  Summer entertaining.  These new tabletop pieces and Lightly’s full new collection of thirty-five spirited pieces for the home, are now available online for pre-order.
