Setting up a trade show is not a simple task, there are many logistics involved and it never get's easier, yet there is something so satisfying while at the show and when the show is over...
Every show is full of great and wonderful people asking and searching for the new products and trends and that's why we love doing the shows so people can get inspired of our products and in turn we get inspired to create new products to set new trends. Fineline has had the opportunity to inspire the Foodservice industry for a couple of years now and we're so thankful to all our partners and customer that make it happen time and again and that's why we look forward to every show and it's very special to us.
The NRA show was amazing, Chicago, the windy city, everyone was there. The questions, the interest and the knowledge that goes around on that floor is absolutely amazing, you can literally feel the creativity in the air, thanks to all great creative minds roaming the trade floor.
We come back from the show inspired and ready to bring on the next challenge as it comes. We have introduced our new Renaissance colored plates, amazing new colors to this already successful collection. We have also introduced a variety of new Mini products, a 2.5oz Wine Goblet, 2.5oz Espresso Mug, 7.5oz Wine Pitcher\Carafe, Mini Cocktail silver pick, Long Cocktail spoons and Forks, the crowed adored each and every item. It was well received by everyone who just looked at them, "OMG those are amazing" or "That's what we've been looking for all this time" and this is what inspires us to search and achieve new heights with you in mind.
So until next time, thanks for all your great support, we love you all.
We love and wish for you to give us comments on our products and let us know what you're up to and what you see and think will be the next product star in the food-service and hospitality industry.
So until next time, here's to a great network and great individuals!

Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla,where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla). It originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War, and today the date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day—the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16. (wikipedia)
Celebrating this day is a huge tradition by doing so with amazing foods, drinks and goodies, along with friends and family. Good music is always needed when having such an amazing celebration.
A Premium Party is always the best way to go, by not having to wash the dishes at the end of the party you're already considered a avid partier! Today's day and age there are so many options when looking to choose from upscale disposable partyware, say you want round plates or square plates with a wave design or even the unique soft square edge disposable plates, they are all great for the party and your guest won't even know that they're plastic until they feel them.
Table Setup: It's very important to know who and how many people you're going to be having for dinner or for the party, it's always good to have a plan of who'll be there and what you'll be serving. Is it an all buffet style or a sit down. In any case there are products and dishes that will help you work around every situation and make you look like a hero at the end of the day. Make sure when you start that there should be plenty of appetizers and finger food (check out our Pinterest board for great inspiration) so that even your main dish is not ready, everyone will be happy and start some great conversations.
Drink: Always good to start off the party with soft or alcoholic beverages, let people get comfortable and loose so that they should enjoy the party as they wish, make sure you have adult supervision if there are any minors attending this party, or be safe and leave the hard beverages for the end after the kids are done and just the adults are left.
Food: Food menu is something that will need to be decided based on whom your guest will be, it's always good to have some salads, pasta and or vegetables, beans go great, some meat to fill you up would be great as well. You don't need to go crazy with preparing so much food since you don't want anything left over for you to have to clean up. Some chips, fruit and some smoked turkey would be the perfect blend of foods to keep your guests satisfied and you'll be happy as well.

Welcome back from Las Vegas everyone!
We've just got back from an amazing Catersource Tradeshow. This show has become for us a real great event where we can display our full line of Upscale Disposable Dinnerware and Partyware collections and it's only getting better over the years, the Catersource company is an amazing company with a bunch of great people to deal and work with, they are very nice and friendly.
The show was an amazing experience for us as it was for all attendees, this is a very hands-on show where everyone has questions and interacts with each other, that's when you can get a sense if what you're doing is right.
When an attendee comes into your booth and starts getting excited when they see your products, they take photos of the products and ask different questions about the product, you know you're doing something right. That's exactly what we've had in the past few days, we have been showing our new products that will be available in the coming few months and we have gotten only positive response from all the attendees.
The first product that we will be launching is the Renaissance plates in different trendy colors, there will be a purple/wine color, a beautiful metallic silver color and a pistachio green color. These new color will be available for all three size plates.
We've also been showing a new service that we have begun to offer, printing on products. What that means is, say you're doing a catering event for a client that has a large company, a great way to bring together the party is by having the clients logo printed on the plates, trays, utensils and tumblers, when people arrive at the party they'll know that this is a promotional party for that company and they'll remember it for a long time. The same goes with promotions, say you're a deli or a breakfast and coffee house, you'll want your patrons to feel at home with that personal touch, adding print on product is a great way to bring that together.
More of the new products that we've been displaying were, a new mini wine carafe, a new real mini wine glass and a cute little espresso mug with a tiny little handle to get your finger in there, there was also a silver pick, great for martinis and fruit dishes. We also have 5 new catering items, 2 size deep trifle bowls and 3 different sizes of cake trays with stands that build upward in tiers, those will be available in clear and white.
All in all we can say that we've had a truly engaging tradeshow and everyone who passed our booth had been amazed over the booth layout and the product. It's not too late to signup for our free iPad giveaway which will be announced on Thursday the 22nd of March, you can signup here make sure to like our Facebook page in order for you to win, check out our Facebook page here and start engaging with us about our products, we'd love to hear from you.

The Holidays are coming... the Holidays are here!
With all the preparations and shopping hopefully done already, it's your time now to sit down and start preparing the holiday meals for all your guests, family and friends that you plan to have over for the meals.
Make sure you have a game plan, know your guests, what they appreciate to eat and make sure if anyone has any allergies that you need to be aware of, if you have a family member that is vegan, they would really appreciate you preparing them something they will be able to eat, or anyone who has a specific food or health diet. These tiny little things are what really make people happy and makes them feel extremely welcome knowing that you thought of them when preparing your party, that will never be forgotten.
Here's one great tip that you will always be grateful, remember the days you used to borrow the china dishes from neighbors just to have enough for everyone and then they did not match? Well that is over and those days are long since gone. If you plan to have a party or dinner with 10 or more people you don't need to use real china plates or glassware, check our Fineline Settings with such an amazing selection of upscale disposable dinnerware and an amazing collection of plastic tumblers and drinkware, you will always be thankful that you used plastic rather than using real.
There are a great variety of styles and shapes and 4 different colors to choose from, Black, Bone, Clear and White. Each with its own unique style and design to satisfy every trend and theme. They have soft square edges with are the hottest trend right now, check out their Renaissance premium upscale disposable dinnerware collection and they just got a brand new crystal tumblers collection that will sparkle whatever is in the cup.
With these plates they have amazing heavyweight premium silver plated plastic cutlery as well as silver mini cutlery for tastings and desserts, all heavyweight and they almost look better than the real deal.
For the cocktail table or mini finger food heaven table you have a full selection of mini disposable plates, bowls, dessert cups, utensils, tongs, espresso mugs, sushi plates and much more, it's a dream come true for the special pop and mom that love to wow their guest but don't have the means to do it with expensive serveware, these mini dishes are premium weights and are recyclable and disposable. You'll enjoy the setting up as much as your guest will enjoy tasting and eating all the foods.
Now come the wine and spirits, you got red wine, white wine, champagne, bourbon, whiskey and scotch (for the adults of course) and who doesn't like a great cocktail mix, Fineline Settings has got a cup for everything. Check our their collection of tumblers and stemware, high quality plastic that will make that shot go down as smooth or as rough as you just like it.
So, with the shopping and presents done with, now is the time to sit down and work out the meals if you haven't done so already.
