Happy Birthday Eve to Me!
That’s right, tomorrow is my birthday! To kick off the festivities, I have decided to share with you my Top 5 Favorite Summer Things of 2011 – A faux-birthday list of sorts. This exclusive list includes items that I absolutely adore from WEBstaurantStore.com and hope you do too – Enjoy!
Savvi Serve Clear 9" Plastic Plate: I absolutely LOVE these plates! Their whimsical design matches any décor, from backyard barbeque to elegant wedding reception. And, their rounded rim ensures that pasta salad, potato salad, and coleslaw never spill off the plate. Their heavyweight plastic design is perfect for serving both warm and cold foods, including pork barbeque, meatballs, grilled chicken, and fish. In fact, I use them all the time at home when I don’t want to deal with dirty dishes! And that, My Bloggers, is why these fancy plates made it into my #5 position.
Mercer Knives: Quality, dependability, and a name you can trust – Sliding into my #4 position this summer is Mercer brand knives and cutlery. Recently added to WEBstaurantStore.com, these knives come ready to outperform the competition. I’m sure you’ll be pleased with our selection – I sure am!
Hall China: If you’re looking for the most durable and elegant china serving ware on the market, then you've come the right place! Situated at #3 this year is our Hall China collection. Not only is it amazing because it’s made in America, but Hall China made my list this year because of its superior durability, chip resistance, and combined heat and cold retention. This China is designed to be used – and trust me, there’s no doubt that you’ll want to use this China day in and day out.
Colored Beverage Napkins: Looking back at last year’s list, I couldn’t help but notice that these colorful beverage napkins are once again in the #2 spot for two years in a row. It’s no wonder why - I use these napkins all the time for parties, picnics, get-togethers, reunions, and even on my kitchen table. With all of the colors we offer, these beverage napkins can be used year round for any occasion. I have them in black for everyday use, red for Valentine’s Day, teal for Memorial Day and July 4th, bittersweet for Halloween, spice for Thanksgiving, and red for Christmas. And I plan on buying more.
Hoffmaster Red and White Reversible Cupcake Wrappers: And now for my #1 favorite thing for this summer - Hoffmaster red and white reversible cupcake wrappers. A cupcake truly isn’t a cupcake until it’s wrapped in one of these. They’re perfect for use all summer long, particularly around July 4th when the red and white will offset playful blue cupcake icing. By mixing it up and using some of these wrappers with the red background showing and some with the white background showing, you’ll instantly create a lively, eye-catching presentation for your guests to enjoy.
So there you have it; my favorite summer things for this year. Do you have any favorite items to add to my list? If so, comment with what they are! My list can always use some additions!
