Flying saucers

It wont exactly be saucers that’ll be flying but slate plates and they won’t exactly be flying, as in buzzing around the place like a busy bees or like frisbees at the beach.  No they will be flying out the door like hot cakes as people queue up for them  next week at the RDS Christmas Craft Fair.  At least that’s what I hope.

And I’m still not convinced that slate plates are the way to go but who am I to dictate what’s in vogue.  SLATE PLATES ARE IN and so in order to keep up with the demand, Heartworks have moved into this realm, albeit reluctantly.  And, as part of product development, we had a dinner party recently and used all our new  new selection of tableware.  The cheese, the olives and sundried tomatoes were put directly onto our serving board along with a variety of crackers.  This was our little hors d’oeuvres and was accompanied by a sherry which were served in little glasses on one of our ornate serving plates.  Heartworks OLDC Selection-4 (Medium)

Then came the starter served on slate plates; Prawn cocktail surrounded by a bed of baby leaf salad.

Heartworks OLDC Selection-1 (Medium)The next course was not served on plates as it was a chicken casserole and we were hardly going to serve that on slate plates and risk chicken and its gravy going everywhere!!!

And finally the Dessert, a little dollop of ice cream together with a slice of cheese cake and a few pieces of fruit strewn around the slate plate.  Heartworks OLDC Selection-8 (Medium)

We used our new coasters too for the wine glasses and we had one of our latest tea light holders down the middle of the table.

It was a feast and a half!!!

It wasn’t until the next morning that I realised how many plates I had used when I went to wash them.  But they washed up beautifully and kept their lustre.   They’re packed away now for the next special dinner party which will be coming up soon and I won’t let you know yet who’s on the guest list!!
