PLANNING YOUR WEDDING - AVOIDING THE PITFALLS (1)


NAPKIN FOLD BY PC CREATIONS LEEDS- Napkin Folding Service Available

At a very early age I was able to set a table to perfection. It didn't matter if the family did not sit together for a meal during the week, but on Sunday it was a must. On Sunday mornings no member of the family waited to be asked or told what to do, rather like a finely tuned engine, all worked together in a symbiotic fashion to achieve the said goal; breakfast in style! Sugar in the sugar bowl, milk in the matching milk jug, and none of those namby pamby teabags, in the teapot, no sir real tea leaves! Does anyone use tea strainers anymore?

CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING CUTLERY

Enough reminiscing. I'm thinking about weddings today. I've been to a lot in my time, as I'm sure some of you will have too. Had some wonderful company and conversation, and some good laughs. I also have memories of losing all decorum while eating my meal, as several fork tines suddenly snapped and either spiralled away from me into the centre of the pristinely dressed table, or stood proudly in the middle of my roast potato waiting to be plucked out like excalibur. Plastic cutlery! I do not like plastic cutlery, especially forks. Rant

over.

STILL HAVEN'T MADE A DECISION?

TAKE A LOOK AT THE REASONS I CHOOSE SILVERWARE BEFORE PLASTIC EVERYTIME

SILVERWARE

  • Looks very attractive when set on a table (See image below courtesy of Pexels)

  • Can handle any foods without snapping

  • Lasts years and years and maintains its look

  • Can be used again and again

PLASTIC / DISPOSABLE CUTLERY

  • Can also look attractive when new

  • Prone to breaking at inopportune times

  • Does not last as long as silverware

  • Can be used more than once but can be stained by certain foods

  • The silver coated plastic cutlery can be used several times though will sometimes start to peal over time, which is not attractive

  • Most plastic cutlery is not recyclable, therefore ends up in landfill

  • Apparently some people can actually taste the plastic

  • Contrary to popular belief, most disposable cutlery should actually be disposed off after being used once

USE SILVERWARE WITH CROCKERY

If you are in the process of planning your wedding, I do not suggest that you break the bank, or go over your budget, but if you're going to give your friends and loved ones a tasty and attractive meal, then make the experience a complete and enjoyable one. If you're going to be using crockery then also use silverware. If your meal is not going to consist of 5 to 6 courses, and you're not inviting more than 100 or so guests, then splash out on the real stuff, it makes a difference and really doesn't cost that much to hire.

I must admit that as I write this particular blog, I'm thinking there is nothing nicer than a cold buffet. Pork pies, sausage rolls and all the trimmings, there's nothing like finger food.

It's all or nothing!

We wish you every success in planning your wedding.
