Remember when you threw your first dinner party? Perhaps you were in college, or had recently graduated. Perhaps you were a struggling newlywed. At any rate, you may have opened up your silver drawer for that first dinner and realized what a sad semi-collection of mismatched bits and pieces you had. Four forks, two knives, half a dozen teaspoons and a single soup spoon, no two of which bore any resemblence to one another, let alone the rest of the table settings.
That’s sort of to be expected of someone who has just joined the adult world and hasn’t had the time nor the funds to put together all the bits and pieces yet. But if it’s been at least a couple of years since that day and you still haven’t fixed the situation, now would be a great time to do so.
Cooking.com is having a winter blow out sale. There are lots of great deals to be had on all sorts of cookware, barware, and tableware. My personal favorite deal, though, is this handsome 45-piece set of stainless steel flatware by Cambridge Silversmiths in the Gabriana pattern.
That’s eight place settings and a 5-piece hostess set, all in a style that’s simple enough for everyday but attractive enough for company. The heavy weight stainless is dishwasher safe, and won’t easily bend like stamped, lightweight pieces will.
Oh, and did I mention what a pittance they’re asking? The suggested retail on this set is $199.00, Cooking.com usually carries it for a much nicer $129.99. Right now, though, they’re blowing it out for just $54.99! That’s a savings of $145.00!
If you need new stainless, or you know a soon-to-be grad or bride, this would be a great time to give yourself or someone you love a really great, really practical gift.
