Upscale Disposable Tableware, A Blog

    Holiday Dessert Table


    The holidays are here and it’s a great excuse to celebrate with a festive dessert table!  For this dessert table I used the tiny compostable caterware from Fineline Settings’ new SelfEco line.  For some reason, it just feels special to have dessert served in tiny individual portions.  Not only do they look elegant, they are also eco-friendly, zero-waste, plant-based, and compostable.  So, we can feel better about serving each guest five mini dessert offerings in individual containers.  Well, at least when it comes to satisfying their sweet tooth and saving the planet. 


    I wanted the dessert table to have a wintery theme to go along with the holidays during this season.  To set the stage, I hung white paper snowflake fans and a snowflake garland for an easy backdrop.  Then, I added a frosty green  garland, a lantern, some pillar candles, and tinsel to add some holiday sparkle.  

    Starting on the left, I used the 2 piece champagne flutes to serve cranberry punch.  To make them more festive, I added a pink sugar rim, a few raspberries and mint sprigs.  

    Beside the punch, I used the 4” square cocktail plates to serve slices of key lime pie and fresh strawberries.  I like how the plates have a convenient opening for a tiny fork.

    I also used these beautiful Asian spoons, which  are great for one or two bites.  They were perfect for serving white chocolate mousse garnished with a raspberry and micro mint.

    On the right of the dessert table, I used a two tiered dessert stand which is also available through Fineline Settings.  I like how it adds height and space for more sweet treats!  On the top tier, I used the 4 oz round bowl for serving a mini cupcake and strawberry macaroon.  I also really like that the bowls have a mini utensil holder.  It’s so convenient and still looks elegant. 

    On the bottom tier, I used the 3 oz mini cubes for individual cheesecake desserts.  I like that they are clear so the guests can see all the delicious layers of the dessert.

    A festive dessert table can make any holiday or celebration special! The idea of serving tiny desserts in small portions is so fun and great for entertaining!  With Fineline Settings’ compostable tiny caterware, you can really get creative with your desserts this year while keeping the earth green.  So, please go ahead and start planning your five course dessert menu and enjoy the holidays!

    From Our Families to Yours,


    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.

    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.

    What you need to know when throwing a party!

    Throwing a party is stressful enough, from planning to inviting and then to actually setting up the party and making sure everything is set beautifully and ready for the guest to arrive and indulge.

    Planning the party:

    It all starts when you decide you want to host a party for any particular reason, whether it's for any upcoming holiday and you're going to invite your friends and/or family, or your having a gala event, bridal party, wedding party, birthday party or any of the like, heck you don't even need a reason to throw a party. The first thing you need to set is 1. how many people you're going invite. (take in consideration that this number will always be higher at the end) 2. if you have a specific theme you want to showcase at the party.

    Inviting your guests:

    Whether you are the formal people or classy type, an invite is always appropriate and appreciated. There are many different and really interesting ways you can invite your friends and family over to your party. The typical paper invitation can work well, depending on the occasion, linen paper with burned edges are very nice, but you can get funky and make something different depending on the occasion. P.S. Email is not the finest way, although the quickest and perhaps easiest way, one would much rather appreciate a more personal approach.

    Holiday and Upscale party settings

    Preparing the menu:

    As with everything else, this all depends on the type of occasion you are hosting. If this is going to be a meal type of event then you'd probably want to plan a full 5 course meal, starting with cocktails and continuing with entrees, appetizer, salad, soup and main course. Don't forget the main course for some is the dessert, who doesn't like a great dessert after a nice meal with a nice glass of wine or champagne. However if you're throwing the fun and casual party, things probably need to run a bit different in the food section. You can start off with cocktails which always are a great way to bring everyone up to date in all the conversations etc. plus it gives you some time to make the final touches in the kitchen if you're not ready to serve yet. Then you would want to have a buffet style of entrees and finger food coming out on a constant basis, varying from different meats, chicken, fish of all sorts and veggies. One very important note, make sure you know of any specific diets or special food requirements before making your menu, it can be very counterproductive and hurtful to find out of someone allergies or special diet in middle of the party.

    Setting up:

    This is where it get to the fun part. Your menu is done, the food was bought or going to be ordered, now you can start dreaming of the table setting and theme you want to go with. All this depends again what type of party or event this will be, indoors or outdoors, standing or sitting, casual or formal. Age type is also key to know how to set your tables. The one most important thing of all is to try to purchase plastic and disposable products for props and for food serving as well. In today's day ad age there are so many great products that are not made of real expensive china thus giving you the opportunity to be different and spend less on setup, it also gives you a greater variety of products to chose from and a whole different color option. Fineline Settingsis a great resource and we are the leading manufacturer of fine upscale disposable dinnerware. The great part of using disposable products is that when all is done and the event and party is over, there is nothing left to do, just throw everything in the trash or recycling where available and you're done for the night, rather than having to go and wash or pay your caterer to wash them for you.

    During the Party:

    Now is your time to shine, stay calm and make sure everyone has what they need at all times. Being a host is not an easy job, being a great host in even harder. Your guest will remember this party or event for a very long time if everything is nice and calm, get some extra help with serving the hot food and making sure the serving dishes are always full. Keep on switching stations so everyone gets a chance to have a bit of everything. The only thing left for you now is to enjoy the aftermath, whether it's with your kids or with your loved you, breath in the moment and start planning the next party, don't have an occasion? That's not a problem, you don't need an occasion to party! Happy Holidays - Cheers!
