Flatware to Love

It's important to remember that a meal is not just about the food you're serving. The dishes, glassware, tablecloth, napkins, candles, and flowers enormously influence the overall feeling of the meal. Flatware, I feel, is oftentimes neglected, and given less attention than it rightfully deserves.

Luckily, we actually carry a gorgeous flatware line called Napoleon. Not a lot of people know how special this flatware is and for the sake of showcasing an extraordinary product here is a little information you might not know.

Handmade by skilled craftsman, our Napoleon Flatware is imported from Northern Italy. The flatware is 18-10 gage (the heaviest weight avaliable) and made from stainless steel. Not only is it beautiful, it's also extremely durable. The plastic resin used to make the handles is the same kind used on the Alaska pipeline! Needless to say, this flatware lasts forever. It's also dishwasher safe!

I use my Napoleon flatware every day. Whether I've set the table with fine china or melamine plates, the Napoleon adds a little something to the setting. My favorite color is the pearlized ivory. but comes in a myriad of colors from a deep burgundy to a pearlized, eye-popping blue. This flatware also makes wonderful gift because it comes in many different forms- a hostess set, a five piece place setting, bridal set, salad tongs, pasta serving pieces, etc. that you can collect over time.

The pictures on our website don't quite do the design justice. Here are a few close ups so that you can see how special this flatware is.

Our pearlized champagne colored five piece place setting- it's a great neutral color for any table setting.

Our gorgeous pearlized blue pate knives- this color reminds of the Greek cobalt blue.

Our pearlized green cocktail forks, it's a really deep emerald.

Our bridal set in pearlized pink.

Our hostess set in pearlized copper.

Our tortoise five piece place setting.

These are just a few informal photos to show how brightly those handles and steel shine! It's also great because the packaging for each set of flatware makes it easy to store as you can see from the cocktail forks and pate knives.

Thanks for stopping by!
