The beginning of spring is the perfect time for a celebration! Living in Florida, the months of March and April are pretty much the best of the entire year. The humidity hasn’t kicked in yet, the weather is in the 70s, and it is the best time of the year to get together with family and friends.
To welcome spring, I was inspired to invite a few friends over to our house to enjoy a few light bites and sips, sit outside in our backyard, and enjoy the fantastic weather we’ve been having! When it comes to entertaining, there is one dilemma I’m always faced with: what tableware do I use? As much as I love using the plates, cups, and flatware I have in my kitchen cabinets, there is the sometimes annoyingly large stack of dishes I have to do after the get together has concluded. I don’t know about you, but seeing a pile of dirty dishes that I have to deal with is one of my least favorite things… and is why I typically coerce my husband into doing them. That’s love, folks.
The other problem with my traditional plates and cups is the hazard of having them in a place where they can break. When we are sitting out on our patio, I like to avoid bringing glass into that environment. No one wants to have to clean up broken shards of glass if something falls! So – what to do? I have to admit: disposable tableware isn’t always my favorite option. Flimsy paper plates that don’t match my decor… drinking wine out of a paper cup? No thank you!
Thankfully, there is a lovely solution, and it comes in the form of Chinet® Cut Crystal® disposable tableware. Pretty, right? I am quite fond of their full line of coordinated products that are perfect for styling a party. Chinet® Cut Crystal® cutlery, plates, and cups are the only fully coordinated line of disposable tableware, and now includes the new stemless wine glass! I am SO glad to see these little beauties – they are perfect for enjoying a glass of wine without worrying that a guest (or ME) will break one of my pieces of stemware.
Personally, I love that the products are clear in color, and the subtle swirl pattern is able to match any theme or décor you have set for your soiree. All of the components in the line are perfectly coordinated with one another. Plus, clear matches everything! From plates, to cups, cutlery, and stemless wine glasses, the line will really allow everything to pop on your table. The quality is fantastic as well: all of the pieces are sturdy, as well as beautiful!
So really, there is no excuse for you not to get together with those you love for a gathering. Chinet® Cut Crystal® tableware makes cleanup easy, so you have more time to spend with your guests.
In addition, the Chinet® Cut Crystal® website has tons of other inspired decoration, craft and recipe ideas to make your next gathering perfectly coordinated. Make sure you check it out for more inspiration!
So, I want to know: How would Chinet® Cut Crystal® elevate your next get-together?
