Handmade: always the better way

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:00:00 AM in William Yeoward (2)

In today's 3-D printing and other highly sophisticated technologies, hand-made products are becoming more and more a thing of the past. The belief that handmade products are more superior compared to machine-made ones will always prove to be true in many other aspects. First, no two handmade things are completely identical, thus every product, even those within the same category or collection, is never the same. The master-level skill used to create every product, coupled by the slight disparities that are inevitable, result in a distinct outcome. Considering the substantial time and effort placed in creating handmade products, they usually last much longer and work better over the years. Just like the William Yeoward Country collection—astoundingly designed glassware pieces, which are all handmade to be more durable, more beautiful and stronger over time…simply the perfect family heirloom for generations to come.

Setting the table for formal dinner

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in William Yeoward (2)

Preparing the table for a formal dinner is no rocket science. The rules are simple and the guests know what to expect (which makes it critical that you stick to the rules). The fork goes to the left and knife and spoon to the right in that order from the plate. The knife’s sharp edge should face the plate. Above the knife goes an empty glass standing upright and empty. Meantime, a napkin is placed on the plate or under the fork.  This is the most basic arrangement for a formal dinner, but you can add more glamor by including silverware, additional plates, and more glassware. A good elegant choice will be William Yeoward, which draws its inspiration from antique styles of the late 18th century in Ireland and England.
