Your summer fun may end up taking place mostly in your backyard this year. But it can’t be all that bad if you’re drinking something cool and tasty from an iridescent glass that’s the same color as backyard bubbles blowing on the summer breeze or the sun glistening on sprinkler spray.

Target’s new SunSquad opalescent drinkware collection is the perfect buy right now — and the cute pieces are discounted 20% off their regular prices as part of Target’s Trending Kitchen and Dining Sale through May 23.

Choose from an 82-ounce lidded pitcher(regularly $5.99) or a 96-ounce margarita pitcher($5.99). Then pick from 16-ounce margarita glasses ($2.99), a four-pack of stemless wine glasses ($9.99), or a tall tumbler ($2.50). You can also get a drink dispenser and an ice bucket (both for $9.99), along with these adorable ice cream cone-shaped bowls ($2.50).


You may have to hurry because these items are going fast. If they are out of stock at your local store, you may still be able to get them shipped.

They look even better when they’re outside! Check out the rainbow hues in the margarita set below posted  to Instagram by @targetfamilyfinds, who said she “had to get these beautiful pieces.”

Everything’s made out of BPA-free shatterproof plastic and ready for backyard action. Several of the items also come in different patterns and colors if you strike out on getting the iridescent ones.

Take a look at the stemless glass set as shown by @freespiritedwildflower, who also points out that this is a look-a-like for Anthropologie’s iridescent stemless wine glass set ($32).

“These are my new summer glasses. Plastic and iridescent colors – perfect for summer. Can’t wait to have my Arnold Palmers in,” she said.

Target’s SunSquad collection has a lot of cute and affordable looking summer items in general, so be sure to check it out if you’re in the market for cheerful, backyard-friendly fun.

Walmart also has a similar acrylic, luster tabletop collection from Better Homes & Gardens with a slightly more retro look. The pieces include a 5-in-1 cake dome ($19.96), a cute pitcher ($8.94), stemless wine glasses ($2.48) and various other glasses and serving platters. (We found the prices did vary slightly by zip code.)

Here’s what your Walmart items will look like on your deck, as posted by @target_bargains.

Plus, Walmart has a gorgeous The Pioneer Woman 5-piece glass pitcher and tumbler set in teal or blue with a luster finish on sale right now for $28.99.

If you’re more of an Amazon one-stop shopper, check out the Bellaforte line with its well-rated range of shimmery, shatterproof glassware. The Myrtle Beach tumblers ($32 for a set of 4) look especially impressive for being made of plastic.

These lovely kitchenware products will definitely have you sipping something out in the sun this summer!
