We attend trade shows throughout the year to find the newest in food, wine, housewares and entertaining accessories for feature. As some of you know that before there was a KosherEye, we founded and operated a large party store in Atlanta. So, we consider ourselves tabletop mavens and are always looking for beautiful dinner and servingware.
When Sophistiplate sent us some tableware to try, we knew that this new line was an answer to our search. The patterns are beautiful, stylish, elegant, and DISPOSABLE! We simply love this brand which is headquartered and shipped from Laguna Beach, California.
A father and son team, Gary and Daniel Seehoff, conceived of Sophistiplate while traveling in Europe. They are both housewares industry veterans, with a passion for innovation and design. Daniel also holds a degree in hospitality and is a professionally trained chef. From Daniel, ”Our goal at Sophistiplate is to elevate disposable tableware to new heights, offering gorgeous items that you can mix and match easily to curate a stunning coordinated table setting”. The tableware had to be convenient, but with the WOW factor. It is!
At this time of year, Jewish homes tend to have more guests than we have dinnerware placesettings, so Sophistiplate is the perfect stand-in for the real thing. Additionally, since many of us do not use our dishwasher on Shabbos or Yom Tov, disposables help with the messy factor we face after each meal. And, yes as we know, there are lots of meals and lots of mess!
We will be setting our table from time to time with the beautiful Sophistiplate tableware, and photographing it to share with our readers.
