Flatware: Oneida (Etage)

Glassware: Anchor Hocking (New Orleans, Florentine)

Accessories: Oneida (Holloware patterns include Stiletto, Noblesse, New Rim), Thermos (tall carafe) and Isinglass (banquet presentation items)

Worth Mentioning: Tabletop layout is not too crowded, which is often the case for banquet tables. The stainless steel cube riser fits well but guests can still see around it. Our judges also feel the silverware stands nicely on its own and is complemented by the platinum on the plateware.
