    ICE CREAM MONTH - SUNDAE BAR

    JULY IS ICE CREAM MONTH - SUNDAE BAR 🍨

    Summer is here and an outdoor sundae bar goes perfectly with hot weather!  By being outside, family and friends can still have small gatherings and practice social distancing as we overcome this crazy time.  There’s so much life happening during the summer like graduations, engagement parties, birthday parties, and other important milestones that call for a sundae celebration.  Half the décor is done when you use beautiful partyware from Fineline Settings to display the food.  A sherbet sundae bar is not only tasty, but the delicious colors are perfect for a summer party!

    For the table, I used a light yellow tablecloth to compliment the sherbet colors.  To make it more inviting and fun, I used a “sundae bar” garland across the front.  I also was lucky to have a florist handpick fresh sherbet colored peonies to make the table extra special.

    Then, I stacked three white cake stands in various sizes to create a beautiful tiered display.  I like the versatility of using the cake stands alone or stacking them.  It was the perfect way to serve the ice cream and sugar cones.

    To keep the sherbet cold, I filled the bottom of three frosted buckets with ice and placed a sherbet container inside each one.  Once they were inside, I filled up the sides with more ice to keep the sherbet from melting too fast in the hot sun.

    I used different containers to display the toppings based on their consistency and texture.  The rolled cookies are great for dipping in the sherbet, so I spiraled them in a trifle bowl for anyone who wanted an edible spoon.  I also used gravy boats to serve pineapple, caramel, and strawberry sauces for easy pouring.

    Below the ice cream cones, I used a sectioned white tray to add more toppings like cherries, white chocolate curls, and colorful gummy bears.  In the center, I used a white tray to display a variety of cookies and on the left, I used another white tray to display fresh chopped fruit.  To help with serving, I used a white scoop for the toppings in the sectioned tray and white tongs for the cookie and fruit trays.

    I also used a bar cart styled with a small sprinkle balloon garland to make the table more festive.  It was a great place to add cute dessert cups and spoons for anyone who may not want a cone. The bar cart was also a great place to serve pre-made sundae cups.  The end result is a vibrant and refreshing sundae bar, perfect for a outdoor celebration!

    As life gradually returns to normal, I hope we can all find time to celebrate the important moments with a summery sundae bar!  With quality party goods from Fineline Settings, entertaining is made easier.  All there is to do is assemble the ingredients into the containers and enjoy.  Have fun celebrating the graduations, birthday parties, or special milestones while you safely social distance outside!

    Earth Day 2020 Tablescape

    Earth Day 2020 Tablescape

    This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day and to celebrate, I’ve created a tablescape featuring biodegradable products from the Conserveware line!  I love that Fineline settings has an environmentally friendly alternative to help us gather in style and be kind to the planet.  For this tablescape, I wanted to use the beauty found in nature to highlight the uniqueness of these products.

    The Conserveware line comes in so many options and categories that you can literally set an entire table.  The plates are available in different sizes and can be used as serving platters or plates for guests.  You can really get creative here with all that is available.

    There is so much natural beauty and vibrant colors that the world is a work of art.  I used a variety of rectangular and square plates to create an art gallery design for the table setting.  Can you tell I’ve been inspired?  I also used a variety of fresh fruits and real flowers to bring in the beauty of nature and to add color.

    The plates can be layered to create different looks.  The one on the left has a smaller square dessert plate on top of a dinner plate and the one on the right uses a larger appetizer plate.  The CPLA cutlery is biodegradable and is available in a convenient napkin roll.  It comes with a spoon, fork and knife in either black or white.

    These cups are meant for hot beverages and have biodegradable lids but they will work for cold beverages as well.  The kraft paper straws are also functional and environmentally friendly.  I like that they have a natural tan color to coordinate with the tan napkin rolls.

    Once the table is set, the different colors and textures of the food, flowers and plates, really create an exciting and vibrant atmosphere.  I was feeling extra festive and used loose flowers as natural confetti around the plates.  I’m about the details and had to add this for a finishing touch.  Ha!

    The best place to set an Earth Day tablescape is outdoor to really enjoy the beauty of nature.  If you happen to have a bamboo grove and knobby tree, they will make a stunning backdrop.  Earth Day is an important holiday and reminds us to take care of the world we live in.  Making small changes like choosing these biodegradable Conserveware plates, cups, and cutlery can reduce pollution and make a difference towards preserving the earth.  Let’s work together in this challenge to take care of the earth.  It’s our responsibility to let future generations breathe the crisp wind rustling through the bamboo leaves and see the sun setting as they sip from their biodegradable cups.

    Winter Tablescape

    Winter Tablescape ❄️

    There’s always so much to look forward to at the end of the year and I’ve dreamed up of this winter tablescape to help celebrate the holidays!  The best part about the holidays is getting together with loved ones and making memories with them.  I’m so grateful we live in a place where we are allowed to take time from our busy schedules to just enjoy the people that make our lives so meaningful.  This winter tablescape is a fun and beautiful way to welcome your guests!

    I chose a classic wintery color palette in white, silver, blue and gold for the tablescape.  A white tablecloth is reminiscent of snow and is the perfect contrast for all the pieces.  For the centerpieces, I used fresh white and blue flowers make the table more elegant.  The silver vases, votives and candlestick holders are the right tinsel-like accents for the table.  To add more frosty vibes to the overall look, I added various blue candles.  Once the centerpieces were finished, the exciting part was setting the table!

    I love to add layers on layers when I set up a special tablescape.  Beautiful silver chargers were used to stay with the color theme and to frame the dinnerware.  Most of the dishes I used are from the Signature Blu collection.  I really like how the navy blue and gold trim make perfect sense to use in this wintery tablescape.  I layered on the 10.25” dinner plates on top of the chargers, then  placed the 7.5” salad plate, and 12 oz bowl on top.  Then, I wrapped a few pears in silver foil and placed them in the bowl for a simple gift and to make the setting visually complete.  Someone is always either giving or receiving an elegantly wrapped fruit during the winter holidays.

    I also used the Renaissance wine glasses and Savvi Serve Tumbler for beverages.  To tie it all together, I used silver utensils from the Silver Secrets collection.  Now the table is dressed and ready for the party!

    This holiday season, create a beautiful atmosphere where your guests can gather around, enjoy an amazing meal and create memories together.  The fine disposable partyware from Fineline Settings help make setting a table beautiful and cleanup is easy so you can get back to enjoying your guests.  So, go ahead and spoil your guests by making this a delicious feast for all their senses!  Happy holidays!

    Fall Harvest Tablescape

    Fall Harvest Tablescape🍂

                    An outdoor fall harvest tablescape is a charming way to really appreciate the beauty and bounty of fall.  This is a lovely time of the year as the leaves turn into different earthy tones and many people look forward to the seasonal harvest.  I never really appreciated the leaves turning colors until someone from Florida told me their friends asked them to bring leaves back from up north!  This was a reminder for me to be more thankful for the blessings I take for granted.  It’s so important to appreciate our blessings that we have a holiday like Thanksgiving to help remind us!  Entertaining is easier when there is disposable fine partyware from Fineline Settings to help me set an inviting table for a fall gathering. 

    IMG_7331

    I started by choosing the perfect place to set the tone for this fall party.  I picked a place in the countryside where the guests will be surrounded by marigold and terracotta colored leaves.  I also incorporated these familiar colors along with some pink for a play on color in the decor. 

    I chose a champagne tablecloth to compliment the centerpieces and tableware.  For the centerpieces I used yellow, orange, white and pink flowers to keep with the color palette.  Dried grass always makes me think of fall so I added a few pieces for some texture.

    Then, I placed the 10.5” Flairware dinner plate directly on the tablecloth and layered on the 7.5” Flairware salad plate.  I also used the 6” Flairware dessert plate to the left side for some bread.  For the utensils, I chose the 3 piece pocket napkin set in gold which comes assembled already.  I love how elegant they look and that I can simply place them on top of the salad plate. 

    For the beverages, I used the stemless mini goblets in clear which is great for serving water.  Since it’s fall, Moscow mules are perfect for serving spiced apple cider.  The cups are not only functional but the copper look and style of them really make this a fall table.  I also chose kraft paper straws for their earthy color and love that they are biodegradable.

    IMG_7321

    I finished the table by adding a few small cream colored pumpkins to bring the harvest into the table.  This simple tablescape is so easy and effortless to put together.  All that is left is for family and friends to gather around, enjoy the harvest and give thanks. 

    Fall is an enchanting time of year as the leaves transition into different colors and a time when we celebrate our blessings.  Hosting a party this season can be stress-free when you use elegant partyware from Fineline Settings.  Set up and clean up is a breeze with this simple solution so you can get back to giving thanks and enjoying company.  Honestly, the longest part of setting this table was putting those floral arrangements together.

    Blush and Greenery Wedding Tablescape

    IMG_0586Right now, there are probably lots of brides, mother of the brides, and wedding planners who are all excitedly scrolling online for wedding inspo.  I just adore weddings as they are a celebration of love, happiness, beauty and the beginning of a couple’s adventure in life together!  I’m a self-proclaimed romantic and I’m absolutely inspired by weddings.

    Wedding trends for 2019 include lots of greenery and blush tones.  There are several reasons why bringing the outdoors inside is popular.  First of all, a couple won’t have to worry about a backup plan if it rains on their wedding day.  Having lots of lush greenery around is reminiscent of a garden and sets the tone for a romantic evening.  It also is a great way to cut down cost but still have beautiful décor.  These days, weddings can cost an average of $30,000!

    IMG_0593

    In addition to adding more greenery to a wedding, varying blush tones are popular and a classic wedding color.  This color is pretty and adds a sweet softness to the overall wedding vibe which may be why it’s timeless.  I love this color and used varying shades of it in my own wedding.  

    With these two trends in mind, I used disposable partyware from Fineline Settings to create a romantic blush and greenery wedding tablescape.  Their disposable plates, cutlery, and stemware make it convenient to set up and clean up after the party is over.  The products are elegant and beautiful enough that I used them at my own wedding with close to 500 guests! 

    For the tablescape, I used a neutral toned tablecloth to naturally go along with the greenery.  I laid a light blush chiffon runner on top, making sure it gathers in random areas along the table.  Then I placed some seeded eucalyptus branches on top of each other along the center of the table to create a faux garland.  Seeded eucalyptus is a very popular greenery in 2019 because of its beauty and elegance.  To finish off the centerpiece, I added a few white candles in glass votives.

    IMG_0580I started each place setting with a disposable blush charger.  Then I layered on the 10” and 7” Round Foil Trim Plates Combo in bone/gold.  I gathered a fancy white napkin over a gold fork, knive and spoon from the Heavyweight Cutlery Combo and tied it with raffia.  I like that the cutlery matches the gold around the trim of the plate and the raffia continues the natural theme.  For the drinkware, I chose the 8 oz 1 Piece Wine Goblet and the 6 oz 2 Piece Wine Goblet in clear since they go nicely together.  That’s all there is to setting a simple and pretty wedding tablescape!

    Getting married is one of the most important moments in a person’s life and it should be treate with special attention.  Everything from the dress and suit to the wedding tabletops should be extraordinary!  This blush and greenery wedding tablescape sets an elegant and romantic tone for an unforgettable reception filled with joy, laughter, and love in celebrating a significant milestone in two people’s lives.   

    Americana Picnic with Fineline Settings!

    With warmer weather ahead of us, there are promises of sunny days for outdoor activities like this Americana picnic!  It’s always fun to spend time enjoying nature with family and friends and to bring along a packed picnic.  I chose a historic old mill for the perfect backdrop to enjoy one of America’s favorite outdoor pastimes.  To make this even more fun, I used several partyware products from Fineline Settings to add nostalgia and ease into the picnic.     

    IMG_1335

    There is nothing more symbolic of America than the bold red, white, and blue colors of the American flag.  These colors carry so much history, pride and unity.  I wanted to use these colors in varying shades for a familiar but modern look.  I chose a light blue picnic blanket for a bright and breezy vibe.  To keep with tradition, I added a wooden crate, a lantern and a wicker picnic basket.  A wicker picnic basket is another classic item that every exciting and nostalgic picnic needs.  I tossed in a few throw pillows to make it more comfy and inviting.  To top it off I added some flowers in shades of red, white, and blue to really make this beautiful and special.     

    IMG_1375 (1)

    It’s great to be outdoor, but the most exciting part of a picnic is the food of course!  That’s why I feel it’s important to have wonderful partyware to serve the food.  I used a 35 oz carafe to bottle up a delicious raspberry lemonade.  Lemonade is another picnic staple and I like the coral color from the raspberries.  I love that the carafe has a lid to keep the drink from spilling during travel.  I also used the 16 oz mason jars for serving drinks.  They come with a screw on top lid with a hole for the straw which will help minimize spills and keep bugs out.  To make it more practical and fun, I took the lids off so I could place a classic red and white picnic napkin inside the jars.  Then I put a knife, fork and spoon in each to make it easier to hand out during the picnic.  I used the white disposable cutlery from the Conserveware line since they are biodegradable.  If we happen to accidentally lose a few in the wild, we won’t have to worry about harming the environment. 

    IMG_1367

    I also chose various sizes of plates from the Conserveware line for serving the food.  They are available in several shapes and sizes, but I used the 10x5” rectangular plates, 10” square plates, 8” square plates, and 6” square plates.  The rectangular plates are great for displaying food.  I used one to serve classic ham and cheese sandwiches.  This will make it easier for everyone to grab a sandwich for themselves.  The 6” square plates were perfect for serving various fruits like strawberries and blueberries.  I like how these berries are red and blue to keep with our theme.  The 10” and 8” square plates are great for each person to take a little bit of everything for a delicious meal.  Since these are disposable and biodegradable, cleanup is easy since they can be tossed in the trash and are environmentally friendly.   

    IMG_1368

                    Memorial Day and Independence Day are coming up and are great reasons to gather with your loved ones and have a picnic.  These holidays remind us to appreciate those who have served and is currently serving our country as well as be grateful for our freedom.  Make these significant celebrations more memorable by having a red, white, and blue Americana picnic in the outdoor space of your choice.  You can have even more fun by serving classic American picnic foods with fun drinkware and smart biodegradable plates and cutlery from Fineline Settings!
