Raising a toast to the Bank Holidays this May

Apr 28, 2023

With not one, not two, but three Bank Holidays this May, have you ever needed more cause for celebration? So, as the seasons shift through spring and we welcome the warmer weather (hopefully – we know what the Great British weather can be like here in the UK, especially on a Bank Holiday weekend!), now really is the time to raise a glass to the impending start of summer!


If the weather Gods and Goddesses are on our side this Bank Holiday, why not pack your beach bags and head to the seaside? Throw a towel in your bag, pack your swimmers and don’t forget the sunscreen. Okay – maybe hoping for swim-worthy weather here in Blighty in early May might be a bit of wishful thinking, still, if the sun is shining, there’s nothing better than a stroll by the seaside complete with a fish and chips supper.


Don’t live by the sea or it’s still a little too chilly for you to consider a drip during the May Bank Holidays? Don’t worry – you can bring a bit of the seaside to you with our gorgeous new glass! The brand new Ridin’ the Waves Wine Glass features gorgeous hues of teal and turquoise waves representing the sea, swirled in with ripples of iridescent gold as if the sandy shoreline.


Why not grab this glass and top it up with a nice chilled pour of your favourite vino, or knock up a batch of sangria to enjoy at home? Even better, why not give the recipe on the bottom of the glass a go? Complete with its own speciality cocktail, you’ll be sipping on a perfectly mixed concoction of brandy, triple sec and Pino Grigio, topped with soda water for some extra fizz!


Not a fan of the beach? We get it – sand doesn’t just get between your toes – it gets everywhere! So, this Bank Holiday, rather than planning a trip to the seaside, maybe you’re thinking about a picnic in the park, enjoying a walk amongst the trees, and seeing what wildlife you can see. If that sounds like a little bit of you, as well as packing your picnic blanket and sandwiches, don’t forget to bring with you the Dragonfly Magic Wine Glass. There’s something lovely about enjoying a glass of vino al fresco in the great outdoors. Why not sip on your drink of choice near the pond in your local park under the shade of a big tree? We’re sure you’re bound to spot a dragonfly or two there…


More of a home-bod this Bank Holiday? There’s nothing wrong with that! Why not strike up the BBQ and invite family and friends around to join you in the garden? Of course, if you’re chief chef, cooking is most certainly thirsty work, and so you’re going to want to man the BBQ with a glass of something refreshing in your hand! We love the Butterflies Stemless Glass. With its pretty little multi-coloured butterflies floating by, this glass is sure to be right at home as you spend time in your garden. Whether you’re enjoying a short drink or a soft drink, this glass is perfect for the great outdoors.


And finally, as the dark days of winter are firmly behind us and the lighter nights bring a sense of anticipation and hope for the summer season to come with all of its new beginnings, what better way to raise a glass to the Bank Holidays (and of course the extra-long weekends!) than with this lovely Hope Wine Glass? Presented in a beautiful blue shade with pretty floral blooms all over the vessel of the glass, the words ‘Hope’ are written across the middle of it in a lovely cursive font. A beautiful addition to your Designs by Lolita collection of glasses that is just gorgeous for the summer as well as the whole year through!
