Sometimes, it can be difficult to show off your personality in your kitchen. With so many stainless steel appliances and wooden cabinets, a kitchen can look sleek, yet often impersonal and monochromatic. An easy way to make your kitchen feel more home-y is to get some colorful tea towels. You’ll add a pop of color to your kitchen in a cost-effective way. If you’re hosting a dinner or just having some friends over for small bites, these towels will be noticed and commented on by your guests.
The best tea towels for entertaining often come in sets of two to four towels. None of the towels in our sets are the same. Each one features a unique illustration or design, though they fall within the same color scheme. They won’t look disparate but like a coordinated unit. You can find towels with fruit, flowers, animals and geometric patterns on this list. They aren’t just decorative, though. You can dry dishes with these towels and wipe down surfaces. We don’t recommend that you grab one and attempt to wipe up a marinara sauce spill or anything that’ll stain the towels, though.
