If you’re hosting a holiday dinner this year, the look and feel of the table sets the tone for the entire evening. And for many American families, the feast is the center of the holidays. Who said that setting a picture-perfect table needed to be pricey? There are many attractive, high quality table pieces that happen to be disposable – like glassware, cutlery, and plates. Opting to use disposable items not only saves you money (hello, extra holiday gifts), but it also reduces clean up time, which in turn increases family time.
Disposable Wine and Martini Glasses
Disposable plastic wine and martini glasses bring all of the class and sophistication you want for a holiday cocktail hour or catering event, only without the possibility of dangerous broken glass. Plus you spend no time at the sink scrubbing dishes later. Concerned about the amount of waste produced? Not to worry, our plastic martini glasses, as well as our disposable wine glasses, are recyclable. Keep a few colorful, metallic markers on hand and encourage guests to personalize their glasses. It’s unique and helps avoid drink mix-ups.
Tip: Step up your presentation by serving up dessert in the martini glasses. Mousse, parfaits, sundaes, and pudding all work perfectly.
Disposable plates can be just as durable as their formal cousins, but minus all the time it’ll take you to wash the fine china this holiday season. Corrugated, disposable plates give the same feel as reusable plates, provide the same sturdy hold, but can be tossed in the recycle bin after using. We bet your guests may not even notice that they are eating off of recyclable dinnerware. Some of the more elegant options, like these square black plates, provide an elevated look comparable to fine dining establishments.
You really can have it all. Disposable flatware is chic, it’s convenient, and it won’t break the bank. In addition, there is a multitude of options. For a traditional look there are the silver style utensils. For the environmentally conscious there is compostable flatware. And for those who want a modern look there is the Reflections cutlery line. No need to polish Grandma’s old silverware this year!
Tip: No table is fully set without serving ware. Ladle sauces and serve slices of pies with these fine utensils.
Be prepared for lots of “oohs” and “ahhs” this season when your guests see your table scape and then learn that it’s all disposable.
