    Make it a Margarita Night!

    We know that every day is a reason to celebrate... but can you blame us for being a little extra excited about Febraury 22st...? "What", you may ask, "is so special about a Thursday?". Well, dear friends, in the spirit of 'it's always 5 o'clock somewhere', we are happy to tell you that February 22nd is National Margarita Day!

    margarita fun.jpg

    That's right, as your busy work week is finally crawling to a close, treat yourself to some Thursday evening enjoyment with a cold, salt (or sugar) rimmed margarita! Yes, we know, in some parts of the country it still feels like the only thing to do is huddle by the fire with hot chocolate... but we see no reason not to huddle by a fire with your favorite people and a tasty Margarita!

    And because Thursday is still a worknight, and that means every precious moment of free time should be spent decompressing and not dish-washing, let some of our favorite disposable Margarita-style glasses take the stress away.

    With our Flairware Clear and Green-Base Margarita Glasses, you can have a happy-hour without any of the after-hour mess! MAS_3862.jpg

    So go grab your favorite mix, limes, and whatever else you deign delicious, and take this Thursday evening and add a bit of extra fun! After all, we're celelbrating with you... in spirit!

    Recycling With A Purpose

    Bay Area Toy Company Uses Recycled Plastic Milk Jugs To Make Toys. 

     Green Toys Are Made In The USA From 100% Recycled Content

    It’s not very often you hear of a true recycling success story but Green Toys in Northern California is just that.  They make durable toys for children.  Green toys is what every environmentally conscious innovative company should strive to be – Profitable.  It’s not just the profit that matters to them though.  The entire ethos of the company is based on doing great things.  From the design of the toy and the development of the child to "made and packaged in the USA" green toys is doing it right.  So when you throw that plastic milk jug in the blue bin have confidence that it is going to a recycling center and beginning a journey of reformation into something else.  There is a lot of data on plastic and it’s important to know and acknowledge where you can buy “Made In The USA” from Recycled Content. 

    Recycling containers is important.  The average American produces more than 4 pounds of waste per day and a quick google search will yield you the data that more than 1.5 pounds of that waste is recycled or composted.  While those numbers on average are OK there are 2 simple steps corporate buyers and business operators can take to make them better. 

    1. Use food containers with recycled content.
    2. Use food containers that are dishwasher safe and can be reused by consumers again.

    Recycled / Recyclable Catering Supplies

    Reform bowls are made with up to 99% recycled content in the USA

    Another great recycling success story is the very company I work for – Fineline Settings.  Fineline Settings manufactures recyclable catering bowls and trays using recycled content.  The line is called ReForm and we like to think of it as having a “reforming effect” on the catering and food service industry.  ReForm boasts the “Made in the USA” label but there’s something much better and much more profound about this food packaging system – It’s reusable by your consumers. 

    Reform’s durability and useful life will far exceed the food that comes in it.  Its design and sturdy construction not only provides sleek, functional, and table ready convenience it also provides a constant reminder of your great food which will increase reorder rates. Its an investment in your catering and food service business that will continue to work for you long after the food is enjoyed.   And the best part is when the customer is done using it (hopefully again and again) it's recyclable again. It will begin a new journey to be reformed into something else.  See what we did there?

    Need some advice or great food service options that work for your business?  Please feel free to send us a message and we’ll reach out.

    INGREDIENTS

    • Fineline Settings Renaissance Stemmed Champagne – Yes it’s disposable but will also make it through           the dishwasher.
    • 1 cup fresh blackberries

    2. Once blackberries and simple syrup are cooled, spoon about 4 tablespoons of syrup into the bottom of each champagne flute (this recipe makes 4 drinks)
    3. Top with champagne.
    4. Garnish with fresh blackberries or the cooked blackberries, and a sprig of rosemary.
    5. Cheers!

    When you need more than the perfect gravy recipe

     

    Setting Up For Thanksgiving.

    With Thanksgiving right around the corner there’s a lot to do.  Some people spend days in the kitchen prepping food and scouring the internet for things like the perfect gravy recipe.  Having friends and family over to be Thankful for all that is can sometimes be a stress especially when you find you might not have enough place settings for the amount of people coming over.  Rather than turn to any old plastic cups and paper plates for the kids and the random mismatched place setting for cousin Eddie rely on Fineline Settings to set the table for you.  Fineline settings premium disposable place settings are constructed with rigid cut proof plastic that will hold up to the toughest meal scenarios.  The look and feel of a Fineline Place setting is unbelievably real.  Your guests won’t believe they are disposable upon first glance.

    Holiday Party Catering Ideas

    Holiday Party Catering Ideas:

    Holiday season is here and whether you have a large budget or small budget there are plenty of places to find great ideas.  Here’s one that is sure to make the party that much more memorable, stretch your budget that much farther, and make planning your party that much more convenient – Use Fine Disposables. 

    Disposable Fine China Look Alikes

    Disposables Save Time, Money and Labor. 

     Rental costs for serve ware range from about $4 per person to upwards of $7.50 per person.  That’s just to rent the stuff.  Additional costs may include fuel surcharge, price per mile delivery and additional labor to deal with it during the event.  Now you can get all the aesthetical appeal of fine china with disposables that look like fine china for about ½ the price of what it costs to rent.  No fuel charge, no delivery charge, no broken backs or broken dishes to disrupt the event either.  If your per person budget for your party is small you can instantly improve the perception of it with high end disposables and redirect the savings toward a better menu.  People eat with their eyes before their stomach and the better looking the food is the better it will taste and the more memorable it will be.  High end disposables are not expensive when you compare the cost to renting plates, flatware, and glasses.

    Convenient Anywhere.

    Shatter Proof Stemless Wine Glass and Carafe

    The greatest benefit to using disposables is to the event planner.   There are many venues that do not allow glass so you have no choice but to use disposables.  Using disposables opens your venue options wide open and there are many outdoor venues that are less expensive than indoor venues helping to save even more money without having to sacrifice elegance and sophistication.  Plus one less company and rental contract to deal with can be a blessing especially when you’re one of the party planners scrambling to put together a corporate event where the stakes to impress are high.  Simply using disposable items like stemless wine glasses will create ambiance for your event that is over and above using a random plastic cup for beverages like fine wine.

    Disposables Are More Sanitary.

    Fineline Settings Plates Are Fit For White Glove Service

    Sanitation is important at parties with a lot of guests.  Unfortunately, holiday party season coincides with flu season.  Studies show that single-use food service items are more sanitary than reusable dishes.  If you’re renting dishes you have no idea where they’ve been stored, the equipment and chemicals that were used to try and get them clean or who’s been handling them.  Sometimes chips on the edges of plates and glasses that seam harmless can be a breeding ground for bacteria that will give your guests the wrong memories of your event. Disposables have evolved so much in the last decade that they realistically could be used at a white glove service event.      

    Take Away.

    It’s time to rethink disposables.   Make any event spectacular regardless of what it’s for or where it is all while saving time and money without sacrificing elegance, sophistication, health and safety.  Check out a full line of options for any event at and request a catalog at our website.
