Now in Stock: Plates Catering Companies Will Love

Now that tradeshow season is officially nearing its close, we’re ramping up for what we lovingly refer to as Container Season. Just this past Monday, we received our second container of the year and what I suspect will be the first of many during Container Season. As many of you know we sell wholesale plates for catering, party rental, golf courses, banquet halls etc. While a lot of our open stock dinnerware is plain white dinnerware, we also sell a pattern called Snow Drop Porcelain that party rental & catering companies think is quite similar to Wittur & Company’s Julia White pattern.

With this container we just replenished our stock of Snow Drop dishes to ensure catering companies, and party rental companies who think these plates rock can get them in stock. (See how I made that rhyme) For those that don’t have these beauts in their inventory, the pattern is lightweight dinnerware (which helps when you’re transporting them) that is a beautifully versatile pattern to compliment French country themed events, vintage themed events, rustic events and much more.

Snow Drop Porcelain

We replenished stock on the following pieces in the snow drop porcelain line:

  • Snow Drop Soup Plate
  • Snow Drop 8.5" Luncheon Plate
  • Snow Drop 10" Dinner Plate
  • Snow Drop 6" Side Plate
  • Snow Drop 7.5" Dessert Plate
  • Snow Drop Saucer
  • Snow Drop Oatmeal Bowl
  • Snow Drop Sugar Bowl with Lid
  • Snow Drop 'Betty' Cup
  • Snow Drop Salt
  • Snow Drop Pepper

Top 3 reasons to drink beer from a glass

Did you know that there are actually 3 legitimate reasons to drink beer from a beer glass instead of the can or bottle? I sure didn’t. I know it’s the trend to match the brand of beer with the corresponding beer glass. On the weekend Jonathan and I toasted St. Patrick’s day with a Guinness in an Eclisse 12oz Beer Glass and a Kilkenny in a Eclisse 14oz Beer Glass. To celebrate the passing of St. Patrick’s Day with us, I found an interesting infographic that notes 3 reasons why you should drink beer from a beer glass instead of a can or bottle. Check it out below!
