    Get To Know Your Stemware With Fineline Settings

    Let’s have a toast! Let us raise our Flutes, Goblets, Glasses, and Tumblers- but wait, what’s the difference? Yeah, that IS a good question! Why would you choose a Goblet over a Flute? Or a Glass over a Goblet? What makes each of these tonic trollies unique from the other and where are they best served at your table?

    Well, don’t worry, because we have good news: today, we’re going to take you through our stemware and drink-ware categories to take a look at the definitive features of each class. Let’s get started!

     Flairware Champagne Flute


    Playing on the classic, slender shape of its musical namesake, the flute is narrow and delicate. The bowl of the flute is often very narrow, and the stem elegantly tall. This particular style of stemware is used to serve champagne, sparkling wines, and certain quality beers. Our Flairware Champagne Flutes can be used as an example of just how beautiful this style of stemware can be.

    The methodology in utilizing this particular stemware to serve carbonated drinks are due to a process known as Nucleation. The special shape of the flute is, believe it or not, actually partially responsible for the trademark bubbles you see in your favorite champagne.



    This particular style of stemware often ignites fanciful visions of Arthurian dinner and dancing; or adventures in search of legendary treasure. However, the goblet is a great deal more modest a guest at your table than you may think- but that doesn’t mean it is any less significant!

    The Goblet, also known as a chalice, can host both wine and water, and can have a variety of stem types ranging from squat and wide, to tall and slender. The common theme in which all Goblets share: a round, wide-bottomed bowl, and the archetypal stem. An example of the most collective Goblet design can be found in our Flairware 5 oz Wine Goblet.

     At a modern table setting, it is often used to serve water throughout each course.



    This is, perhaps, the most common term used to describe the entire array of different stemware we’ve discussed thus far. However, the wine glass is, perhaps, the most unique and yet varied of the classes. With its many subclasses and etiquette, there is more than enough to share with you today that will show this classic treasure very much deserves its own lime-light!

    Wine glasses come in many shapes and sizes; there are even different styles of glass pending on whether you are drinking red or white wine! Let’s take a look at some of the differences.

    When it comes to one of the biggest variances between the two: a proper Red Wine Glass is often taller and fatter with a long stem; while the White Wine Glass tends to be a bit more demure with its narrower bowl and shorter stem.

    Wine glasses in general often have an oblong, wide-bottomed bowl that tapers inward toward the top and a long stem; there are stem-free versions that can be considered, as well.

    All quality wine glasses are designed specifically so that the drinker may best enjoy the aroma of wine; as the narrow opening helps to contain the fragrance and helps focus it toward your nose and mouth. To see an example of a more unique take on a Wine Glass, our Wavetrends 8 oz Wine Glass gives an edge to the classic style of the Wine Glass.



    This is, perhaps, the most iconic shape of all in our psyche when it comes to taking a drink. Most of our day-to-day beverage consumption is served using the common, sleek, stem-free drinking glass/tumbler.

    With its numerous styles, sizes, and colors ranging from: tall and slender, wide top/tapered bottom, wide-bottomed/tapered top, curvy, or square, this particular apparatus is used most effectively for juices at a formal table setting.

    The Tumbler is distinctive due to its stem-free design. It is, most commonly, a straight-edge, oblong bowl with a large top diameter and a smaller bottom diameter, such as our Savvi Serve Tumblers, or our Renaissance Crystal Tumblers.

    While you may have a Wine Glass, Water Goblet, and a Flute sitting at your table; the Tumbler will be your companion in serving orange juice, tomato juice, etc.



    A common attribute all of our aforementioned classes share (with the exception of the tumbler) is the stem. While it is a beautiful and fashionable touch, it also has a very important and surprisingly obvious purpose: the stem is provided so that the warmth of your hands does not affect the temperature of your beverage. Pretty cool, right?


    We hope now, as you make your selection of our products for your next event, you will be able to set your table, and serve your guests, with the confidence that knowledge brings.

    After doing some research, we here at FINELINE SETTINGS have drawn up our own illustration for a quick table setting guide to help get you on your way. There are a multitude of different ways to set your table, but this composition, we think, helps highlight our discussion this week! So, if you are interested in including all of these stemware heavy-hitters to your next even, take a look!




    Thanks for joining us this week, and we hope this little chat was as interesting and fun for you, as it was for us!


    Have a great rest of your day, friends!

    It's a Super Bowl party like never before - Disposable Partyware

    Who's not excited for the Super Bowl, I can't think of anyone!

    The parties are all well underway and with teams getting ready with their lasts game practice, media day past and gone, everyone is now waiting and preparing for the big day to arrive. It's all taking place this Sunday Feb 2 in MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey, for those who will be going to the stadium we wish you good luck and we hope you enjoy yourselves, for those of us who will be enjoying the game or the commercials at home with friends and family we would like to share some tips on how you could enjoy a lovely and exciting party without all the hassle.

    A party can never be fun and exciting without good food and a nice mix of drinks, for adults and for the underage as well. The best part of using disposable partyware is that once the party is over you don't have to get yourself to work washing everything, you can actually go home or to sleep just like the rest of the party guests, just clear everything in the trash and you're done! How easy and fun was that.

    A Perfect Super Bowl Party with Disposable Partyware

    In the photo above we give you a simple party setup with fruits, veggies and some snacks. The products used in the photo are all made of premium disposable plastic, they are recyclable as well where applicable.

    1. Starting with our premium Gravy Boat filled with salad dressings for dipping such as from Kraft - Green Goddess Dressing, it is savory and vibrant, to this we added some delicious cut Persian cucumbers cut in a Square Wave Mini Bowl from our Wavetrends collection.
    2. We move on to the beautifully red strawberries displayed nicely in the premium Trifle Bowls.
    3. Move over to the Mini Margarita glasses filled with fresh reaspberries and we added our silver cocktail pick for easy eating and not making your fingers red from the berries.
    4. Now to the drinks we give you our best bomber shot glasses, it's a 2 part shot glass, we're sure you remember this from your collage days, we won't go into details.
    5. How well are our Super Bowl collection to be used at the Super Bowl party, they are made of sturdy PET material and have lids to them that fit perfectly, so that you can prepare the snack in advance without being worried that they'll get stail or spill while trasporting them if the party is not in the same location.
    6. Our premium Sturdy serving pithcers or carafes can hold up to 35 oz and are really crystal clear, they enhance any drink that's in them.

    There you have it, a mini party setup in no time, giving you that upscale and fancy party look. Here's what you gain, quick setup time, hassle free, don't worry if the guys get loud and stuff fall in the floor, they won't crack and if they do don't worry it's disposable and last but not least the cleanup will take you no time and anyone can help you just throwing them into the trash can.

    Here's another tip how to setup your Valentines Day Party with your loved one.

    How to create an upscale Candy Buffet party setup?

    So it's Monday and you have your son or daughters birthday party that they're so looking forward to this week. They have already called all their friends, relatives and close neighbors, wait a minute you think, what am I doing for setup and serving? I have got to do something special for this little one, something that everything will go home remembering it and one that he or she will also remember and be thankful for (don't expect very much appreciation for the little one, they love you anyway).

    Worry no more, we've got some amazing ideas to share with you, we'll start with our Candy Buffet setup, it's easy to do, fun to look at and kids and parents will love it too. All you need is a little bit of candy that can be purchased at the nearest Party City store some mini disposable partyware products, a fun tablecover and you're ready to start.


    So here we start with the products we used for this shot:

    As you can see, bu using these mini disposable partyware products we not only have given ourselves a bonus that everything looks so cute, we also now have a portion control feature since there's just so much that can go into these small products and we really don't want the kids to stuff their mouths with so much candy.

    Candy_buffet_setup_using_disposable_partywareIn this shot we've added some creativity, look at these adorable mini carafe - pitchers, you normally would associate them with wine or any other drink, by getting a bit more creative your can once again have a nice portion control and in a beautiful presentation. These carafes can be wrapped with ribbon or bows to add a party look and feel.

    Here you have it, setting up your next birthday party with premium upscale disposable partyware and creating the most perfect candy buffet display table. There are no dishes to wash here and no glass to be cracked or broken which is always a winning proposal.

    How would you setup your next fun party with disposable partyware? We want you to chime in. Send us a note or post a comment below.

    Starting the new year with a great goal!

    Good Friday to everyone.

    We're all just about done with our New Year's eve hangover and getting back to normal or at least trying to get back to normal, some of us have probably been hit by some snow and bad weather, we'll get out of it by the end of the weekend and get back to our daily routine and get back to work.

    Fineline Settings has witnessed an amazing year in the past 2013, with many successes and milestone achievements, we have successfully launched well over 50 new products and designs to our already extensive line of amazing upscale products, with your help and support we have been able to achieve an amazing goal that has been almost a dream for us when we started the year of 2013, yet we pushed and worked hard, tireless amount of hours and with everyone's amazing support we have achieved a great goal and it has been a great support for us.

    Looking ahead at 2014 we can now say that we are determined more than ever to make this year hit another great milestone for us, we are already in the production stages of some of our new products that we have in plan to launch this year, more services and shipping schedules all with you, our amazing customer in our minds all the time.

    When we think of a developing new product, it's not because our lives are boring and were looking for some action, a new product means you asked for it, you gave us the ideas and we went to work, researching the consumer effects and how the best usage of this product would be, with many testing and meetings and testing again we then are able to bring you the new product. New products, as in, a new plate design or shape, are not just someone's idea, they are created with the consumer in mind and only after a massive amount of research in retail stores and after asking hard questions of consumer needs, only then do we feel comfortable to bring you a new product.

    This new year looks very promising in many ways and we are glad that you're with us on this amazing journey, so hold on tight because we're going for a ride, one that will see great services begin further improved, quality control being further tightened, customer service going another extra step to help you and overall an amazing product line to help you in your line of business, whether it is, catering, foodservice distribution, stadium catering, hospitality industry, party planning or an amazing mom or dad that's looking to make that perfect birthday party for their beloved child, we'll be behind you to support and supply you with your needs and make your buying experience an amazing one.
