FREE UP A HAND
The Sakonnet River Company Wine Tray is practical. It is a single-handed Tray that holds both drinks and appetizers at the same time. The sole purpose of this is to let you free up a hand while you are eating and drinking. It makes eating and drinking easier - and more graceful.
BE KIND TO YOUR GUESTS
Wine Trays are essential for events where everyone's networking and moving around; meet and greet affairs, parties on boats, gallery openings, symphony, opera and theatre intermissions, the bleachers at ball games. They are also useful for large social events like engagement parties, weddings, graduations, conferences and office parties.
BE KIND TO YOURSELF
Because they are light as well as elegant they can be essential accessories for a range of activities like hiking, biking, picnics, taking dinner from the kitchen to the living room, breakfast in bed, skiing and floating in the pool. The Sakonnet River Company Wine Trays can facilitate gatherings of friends and family at any time of the year, whether indoors, outdoors, in the mountains or on the water.
GIVE THE BEST GIFTS,
Because of the high quality of the wood and the craftsmanship, our Wine Trays are often used as gifts. Our petite POCKET Wine Trays were specifically designed as party favors for weddings. Our CLUB Wine Trays are particularly useful as gifts for the person "who has everything." Many customers make good use of the Wine Tray's distinctive look and utility by getting their custom design laser etched on the Trays before shipping them to the recipients.
PRESENT THE BEST TROPHIES AND AWARDS
Our Wine Trays presently serve as trophies and awards at sailing regattas. They also function as auction items at fund-raisers. We can laser engrave custom designs for these events and occasions as well. We also provide Trays to clients who wish to personally customize them.
The Tray is very easy to use. We make both left-handed and right-handed Trays. Right-handers put the Tray in their left hand and use the palm of their left hand and thumb to hold the Tray--so their right hand remains free.
Left-handers put the Tray in their right hand and use the palm of their right hand and thumb to hold the Tray--so their left hand remains free. We make both left-handed and right-handed trays.
The beverage is placed in the glass-holder right behind the thumb, as shown below.
The hors d'oeuvres are placed in front of the thumb to balance the Tray and make them easy to access.
