New Coupe Dinnerware Line in Stock

Back in February, we announced a number of new porcelain tabletop supplies we added to inventory. I’ve been neglecting our blog posts as we had two tradeshows to plan and attend at the end of February – the Rental Show and Restaurants Canada Show. Now that we’re back – it’s time to get back to our regularly scheduled blogging program. As I mentioned we have been hard at work ordering additional inventory and getting ready for the busy season. We recently received a container of porcelain restaurant tabletop supplies – updating our stock levels of Hotelier, Quadrato, and our porcelain platters and serving bowls, as well as introducing new pieces of inventory – which you can see here. Here’s a first look at the new Coupe dinnerware line we’ve added to our inventory!

Does food or wine stain plastic folding tables?

We had a potential customer ask us a question regarding our plastic folding tables which we were 98% sure of the answer – but we weren’t 100%. That doesn’t sit well with us so we decided it was time to test it out. The client asked “Does food or wine stain plastic folding tables?” And from the best of our knowledge it isn’t extremely easy to stain the tables (we did leave a folding table outside for almost a year of Canadian weather) but it can definitely occur – particularly with some of the more difficult stains. So I thought I would test this out – determine whether the answer made sense – and if there was a way to fix the stain once it occurred. Check it out below:

1. I mimicked the spill occurring on the table. I chose Red Wine, Ketchup and Coffee for the stains I would put on the table. The reasoning behind those choices: I thought they would be the most common stains/spills that would occur during a special event.

2. I let the table sit 5 days. Here’s what it looked like after 5 days:

Plastic Table with 3 Stains

3. Then I wiped off the stains to check out the damage.

This picture shows the table after wiping off the coffee. I used water and a paper towel plus my elbow grease.

Cleaning Coffee Stain

Here is the table as I’m wiping off the red wine (again with water and paper towel):

And how the “stain” (or lack thereof) looks once complete:


And here is what the ketchup looks like after a cleaning of water and paper towel:

Plastic Tables with Ketchup stain

Ketchup was the only substance that slightly stained the table – I’ve circled the stain in the photo because it is so faint that sometimes I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me.

Hopefully this test provides you the answer you required regarding whether our plastic folding tables stain!

Does Melamine Serveware Warp in Commercial Dishwashers?

We had an interesting question asked of us that we thought worth answering on our blog. A potential customer asked if our melamine serveware would warp in commercial dishwashers.

For those not familiar with melamine, it is a synthetic resin that is used to form durable, break-resistant dinnerware, serving platters, and serving bowls. Melamine serveware can look almost identical to porcelain or be dyed to look like wood, marble, slate or stone. We specifically choose our melamine serveware to look as close to porcelain as possible – we’ve even had trade show attendees do a double take once they feel it!

Commercial dishwashers are like residential dishwashers on steroids and they often either use sanitation chemicals or higher heat to properly wash dinnerware, serveware, flatware and glassware. It is understandable that a potential customer would have a concern regarding warping in a commercial dishwasher.

Melamine platters or bowls works well in a temperature range of 2°C – 93°C (35.6°F - 200°F). Anywhere below zero degrees melamine platters and bowls will get quite brittle and breakage will more easily occur. A temperature above 200 degrees and warping will more easily occur. Commercial dishwashers work up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit so given Melamine’s wide temperature range you should not have warping issues putting them in your dishwasher.

Coming Soon: Metallic Chair Sashes

Last year we brought in wedding chair covers in both spandex and polyester. This helped banquet halls, golf courses and hotels extend their banquet chair investment while rental companies could have another option to upsell brides on. The chair covers were available in the more neutral colours of white and black.

This year we’re continuing to expand our tablecloth / chair cover inventory. We decided to venture into offering a little more colour. You heard it here first…

I’m pleased to announce that coming at the end of January are Metallic Chair Sashes.

Metallic Chair Sash

Available in gold metallic, these chair sashes give an extra oomph to white or black spandex chair covers. Gold continues to be hot colour in the special event industry and these metallic chair sashes would complement gold rimmed dinnerware or gold flatware perfectly.

Additional details:

  • Machine washable
  • Works on different chair backs regardless of shape
  • 190gsm spandex

Pricing will be formally set once they’re in stock so check back to the blog for the announcement that they’re now in inventory!
