Everyone say hello to our four-legged friend, Thisper! We are happy to announce that we have a new addition to our team. While she may only be small (and adorable) she is very keen to get started and make our work even more exciting. We are sure that everyone will love the newest addition to the Castle Crockery family as much as we do. What do you think about our pawesome friend?
Anyone for Champers overlooking the Lake?
Our crockery & glassware certainly gets to some lovely events!
Whilst reading July’s edition of Country Living Magazine, an article about ways to reduce plastic pollution really grabbed our attention and we realised we should be shouting about how we are helping in the fight against disposables…
So next time you plan a family gathering and reach for the plastic glasses / cutlery & plates..don’t!
Just place your order with us and we will not only deliver much more stylish tableware but collect it & wash it up ready for it’s next party!
What could be simpler!
Whatever your favourite tipple you can be sure we have glasses for every occassion…
From a summer Pimms in a tall glass with ice, an Elderflower & Mint Mocktail, a Gin Bulb of Gin & Tonic over ice & fruit or a Pudding Wine to end a sumptious Wedding Breakfast.
One things for sure, it’s thirsty work packing in this heat, we will be definately be testing out a tipple at the end of week..oh but what glass to choose!!??
How gorgeous do our dessert plates look, covered in luscious lemon tart & raspberry Ice cream? Compliments to Karen Rhodes Catering on this one!
Barn Weddings are so popular at the moment and look absolutely fabulous with so many styles & themes, we are always excited to watch things coming together when we make our deliveries!
We have had lots of demand for these stunning hand made Slate Platters, thanks to Mick for making them just the right size for our clients!
Very excited to be heading North tomorrow to this beautiful historic house & grounds, the perfect setting for a Cumbrian Country Wedding!
What a wonderful way to have people remember your big day!
Just like us here at Castle Crockery, they too chose a traditional Potteries in Stoke on Trent to supply this gorgeous range!
Laying the Table
Whether it is a formal dinner or a much more casual occasion, the basic rules do not vary when laying the table.
Give each person as much elbow room as the table permits. Leave an even amount of space between places. Knives and spoons go on the right, forks on the left. The idea is always to work from the outside in.
Formally, it is correct always to lay side plates – even if they are not going to be used – with the napkins simply folded on them.
Once you’ve mastered the basics…go wild with the decorations!!
