Upscale Disposable Tableware, A Blog

    Last Minute Sensible Social Celebrations

    We have all been here; small intimate winter celebration turns into full social blast of the season.

    You initially think, “I will invite my nearest and dearest friends” but when friends decline because they are entertaining out of town guests – the out of town guests become part of the nearest and dearest friends guest list. Suddenly, the initial intimate gathering has you preparing for the party of the season. A full dinner party of 15-20 people has turned into 75+ open house serving heavy appetizers, signature beverages, and tasty wines from all the guests.

    EVERYONE has at least 1 drink at any party even if the drink is water – EVERYONE has at least 1 drink. Accommodating the large swing in friends, guests of friends, family, and friends of family is easy with Fineline’s line of drinkware.

    Let me explain – from Grandma’s & Grandpa’s selective drink choice to your hip and newly married daughter with all the “in-law” guests, (and once the neighbors see the party at your house - include the neighbors and their crowd of visitors). Fineline’s drinkware has it covered.

    Don’t forget – NO CLEAN UP! – It is all Disposable

    Fineline keeps last minute catering items of party trays, pre-rolled cutlery, and platters at your fingertips with user-friendly ordering, readily available on-hand stock of items, and combined shipping of orders. (Check out the super fun snowman and tree platters for the winter holiday treats.)

    5 Ways To Set Your Holiday Table

    Celebrate in Style!

    Time to slow the hustle, Step up the fun, Stop the stress, for The Season has begun.

    The checklist of holiday fanfare is created. You have shopped for the menu and created your perfect signature cocktail. Imagine spirited music, sparkling lights, joyful cheer and plain dreary tableware – Bah HumBug! Keep your holiday event classy, stylish, and festive with one of Fineline Settings holiday table settings.

    We have done the work for you; chose your favorite holiday table display and review the recommended list of items to set your table. You will find everything you need to create that one of a kind memorable experience for your guests.

    1. DSC_1188-222907-editedThe Family Affair using The Renaissance Collection. Lead your guests to an elegant preset table with 10” dinner plate, topped with 7” salad plate and 12 oz bowl. Add a little bubbly champagne flute for the holiday toasts and the stemless wine glass for the festivities. Keep everyone hydrated with water glasses and pitchers for easy refill. Don’t forget your signature cocktails, like the Moscow mule mug and strong sophisticated cutlery. Keep your decor the focus by using the 14” x 14” black square platter pleaser for your main dish display and black heavy weight serving spoons, forks, and tongs for plating and serving. For the grand finale, use the clear cake stand to display all the beloved treats of the holiday. Remember, the height of the cake stand will allow your guests to see the beauty of the dessert and easy access to enjoy 2nd helpings. YUM!

    2. JPG_0802-259788-editedThe Modern Hip Party using Wavetrends Collection. Show your chic flare to all your friends at your grab and go buffet celebration. When your guests all contribute a dish to pass – give them cool hip table settings to display their creations. Buffet style serving brings hearty appetites which means stocking the table with 6” and 9” dinner plates, festive cutlery rolls both black and silver, clear serving bowls for those tasty casseroles, and be the hostess with the mostest – have plenty of serving silverware (because no one remembers the serving utensils for cutting homemade pie or LARGE fork/spoon for dishing up salads!) However, for true fashion forward panache, give your guests the durable cocktail plate invention to marry with their champagne flute or martini glass while mingling and catching up on all the gossip and chit-chat. Oh! Don’t forget those disposable customized shot glasses at your bar for the ongoing toasts of friendship and reminiscing of good times past. Finally, since it is YOUR party, perfect opportunity to show off your culinary skills (without breaking the menu budget) using the Fineline Tiny Tempts trays, bowls, and cubes for portioning and tiny forks, spoons, picks, and tongs for eating.

    3. JPG_1704-129235-editedThe Caterer’s Celebration using Gold and Silver Splendor. When catering an event, expectations run high with the b’s and d’s (bread plate on the left drinks on the right!) of etiquette or the serve on the left clear from the right formality. Customer expectations are a posh and fancy reception; while the caterer needs to arrange for a sturdy but swanky debut of food service. Don’t let the two opposing expectations stress you out for your event, mix and match color, size, and shape to create the perfect blend of adult sophistication and durability. Catering service always includes coursing of the event meal and serving a plentiful helping of the cuisine. Service needs vary from 4” cocktail hour plates and beverage pitchers to starter salads and service tongs or 12 oz soup bowls and spoons. Next the catering experience graduates to the main fare needing 10” plate either round or square trimmed with your choice of gold or silver (for the best deal take advantage of the 7”/10” combo solution). Don’t forget all those different drink flavors from champagne, wine (red and white), water, mixed beverages to coffee, tea, and soda. Here are some tricks of the catering trade - Use simple and sturdy large dome lid and trays to allow for double duty with easy transport of items into and out of the venue while also perfect for serving single serve items (We love those tiny cocktail picks, spoons, and forks for these occasions too – clean, easy, and individual). Now for the b’s and d’s etiquette trick😊 – never know which side your stemless wine glass, water, champagne should be set vs. your bread plate and knife – With your left hand touch your first finger and thumb while holding the other three fingers straight (making a lower case b) do the same action with your right fingers (making a lower case d). Bread plate goes on the left (aka lower case b for bread); Drinks go on the right (aka lower case d for drinks).

    4. DSC_6427-038880-editedTake Home Party in a bag using Solid Squares. Holidays bring hustle and bustle of shopping and cheer leaving you no time to prepare for those impromptu visits from out of town friends. Don’t stress! With just a little finesse, Fineline’s 10 bag/12 case events on the go packaging coupled with a stop at your favorite restaurant will bring entertaining success! This type of readiness is prepared with plates of all sizes including cocktail, dessert, salad, large and small dinner, and large and small bowls. Can’t decide on a color or theme - don’t fret over those small details each item comes in all three colors of black, white, and clear. Use our super large bowls and compartment trays to display each side dish and as an added bonus – store all the leftovers in the same container just use the corresponding lid to cover and refrigerate.

    5. FlareWare - Plates-088964-editedKids Table using Flairware. Let's face it the key to any successful party is keeping the kids happy and fed so the adults aren’t stressed wanting to leave. How do you get kids to eat – make it fun and silly. Keeping in mind the small appetites - first place a 6”round dessert plate then below it but not touching place a 7”round salad plate; place black fork dangling off one side of the 7” round plate and place a black knife off the other side of the 7” round plate. Refold the black napkin (from the pre-rolled cutlery) into a long 2” rectangle and drape between the plates; place blueberries from your fruit tray as eyes mouth and buttons on shirt while a baby veggie carrot is a nose – instant Snowman setting. AND here we go again with those Tiny Tempts (can’t get enough of those cute containers) keep them on hand to dole out lil candies or allow the kids to eat using the tiny cutlery for “just the right size bites”. It’s a perfect game to challenge themselves about how many bites it will take with the little fork before they are full.

    BONUS TIP - There is one last reminder for every table setting – ITS ALL DISPOSABLE. That’s right no dishes, no mess, and leftover package ready. When the party is done clean up is fast and back to everyday living.

    Chanukah Is Here! Celebrate In Style!

    Chanukah has its origins rooted during the oppressive regime of Antiochus IV. Known as the festival of light, this holiday celebrates the miracle of the candle that had burned for eight days (just enough time for more oil to be prepared), when there was only enough oil to burn for a single night.

    This holiday is, perhaps, the most well-renowned on the Jewish calendar; with its unique and beautiful nightly ceremony of prayers as each new candle is lit, it is no surprise.

    This year, Chanukah is taking place from December 16th until the night of December 24th. So, with these wonderful days of celebration upon us, let Fineline Settings help make your eight days of rededication fashionable and fun as you serve up the Latkes, play Dreidel, and light the candles with your family and friends!

    With collections that range from the elegantly simple Savvi Serve, to the exotically chic Wavetrends, no matter what your menu looks like, Fineline Settings’ disposable dinnerware will be there to compliment your style and help you celebrate with our disposable dinnerware. Our selection of high-quality serving utensils or tiny appetizer trays will be the perfect accoutrement to entertain your guests with the ease of disposable polystyrene.


    For this special holiday, we’ve searched for some of the best Chanukah recipes we could find to help your celebration stay delicious, traditional, and easy so that you can spend as much time as possible with those in your life who truly matter.


    There are a few customary pieces of Chanukah tradition that should always be a part of your celebration. One of these exceptional examples is perhaps the most kid-friendly; we’re talking about “gelt”! If you do not know what “gelt” is, we’re pleased to share with you that these little treats are chocolate gold coins. Dreidel (a game also deeply rooted in Chanukah tradition) is often incomplete without these little shimmering treasures.

    Our friends over at OhNuts! Sweet & Crunchy Blog, have been kind enough to share their fantastic Homemade Chanukah Gelt recipe! This recipe is beyond simple and quick, and is a great opportunity to get the kids in the kitchen to help out!

     How do you make your Chanukkah Gelt (money)

    Another delicious staple recipe in the Chanukah tradition is the Sufganiyot (Fried Doughnuts). The Chanukah menus is made up of mostly fried food, due to the significance of oil in the miracle described long ago. Over at, shares their delicious Cranberry Jelly Sufganiyot (Doughnuts) just in time for the holiday. Don’t worry, the idea of trying to whip up doughnuts may seem quite intimidating, but our generous author has provided us with the easy step-by-step instructions that will ensure your sweet treats will come out perfect!

     The best tasting doughnuts

    If there was a dish that was even more vital than the two we previously listed, it has to be the Latkes! Latkes are fried potato pancakes, and a staple in Chanukah tradition that cannot be overlooked. Tori Avey over at her blog, Tori is here to help us learn How to Make Crispy Perfect Latkes Every Time! Along with the recipes, Tori shares with us some of the history of Latkes and their role in the Jewish tradition. She also shares alternatives to the potatoes in the recipe, if you so desire!

     Chanukkah Latke's done right

    Sure, Chanukah may not be the best holiday for your waistline, but you can’t resist the warm comfort of this holiday that brings together family and fantastic food! Our products will always be here to support all of your holiday serving needs, and we would love to hear from you as to how you implemented our collections into your celebration this year!


    Have a very happy holiday!

    Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Premium Disposable Partyware

    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.

    Hi everyone,

    It's been quite some time since we wrote here before, traveling around the states for trade shows and meeting great people introducing them to the smart and classy way to serve their next party. It's been great meeting Food Service operators, Distributers, Caterers, Party Planners, event cordinators and last but not least the chefs behind the great food. When a chef comes in to our trade show booth you can see the inspiration immediately kicking in, their already making their plans what to serve on what dish, this will go great with the appetizers and this will go great for the outdoor pool party we're doing next week, it's really amazing and inspiring to be with these great people that put their heart and soul in these great tasting foods.

    With party planners alike, they need to review the color scheme and patterens which will match for what party and they have got everything worked out to the last detail, they even have plan A, B and C! So much time and effort goes into preparing these plans and designs, it's really amazing.
