No gathering is complete without a delicious meal, but serving guests requires more than just tasty dishes. Creating the right table setting requires cutlery that fits the needs and mood of an event. Planning ahead is key so that you don’t run out of anything. We’ve all been to a function where there weren’t enough plastic forks or someone forgot to get the plastic spoons. With options ranging from simple to sophisticated, there are choices for every serving need. Get ready to dig in with a wide array of reusable and disposable cutlery for your next event.
Before purchasing cutlery for your kitchen or breakroom, it's necessary to consider what type of material is desired. Plastic cutlery fits in at picnics, barbecues and outdoor events - just toss it in the trash or recycling bin when the meal is done. For casual events, check out a wide assortment of plastic forks, knives, spoons, and disposable cups, plates and cutlery. However, when choosing forks, knives, spoons and dinnerware for catering more elegant events or for permanent use in an office kitchen or at home, stainless-steel and porcelain materials are a more durable choice. Wood utensils offer a distinctive appearance and long-lasting use and are great for tossing and serving salad.
Take advantage of the versatile features that many forms of cutlery offer to make mealtime simple. Choose large, easy-to-hold disposable cutlery when serving groups of kids. Heavyweight construction stands up to heaping spoonfuls of potato salad and forkfuls of casserole with ease. Multipurpose cutlery does the work of two different types with a single implement to cut down on the number of items required. Find options for offering guests dining necessities with cup and cutlery dispensers.
Cutlery is available in a diverse selection of styles that provide the right look for almost any event. Lunch at a conference or breakfast at an early morning meeting call for basic cutlery in simple colors that blend easily with most décor. When a more stylish look is needed for a birthday party, family gathering or other special event, choose cups, plates and cutlery in a rainbow of fun colors and with shapes that offer classic style or a touch of modern sophistication.
