ABOUT Table Spoons
Mankind has been using spoons for hundreds of years. Archeologists tell us that the first spoons were made from sea shells and later from cow horns, bones, antlers, and wood.
Spoons had a place amongst the nobility, with ceremonial spoons presented to newly crowned kings. Silver spoons given to the parents of newly christened children were a token of good fortune and the term “born with a silver spoon in their mouth” traces back to these silver spoon gifts.
INOX tablespoon sets aren’t real silver but our talented artisans make each spoon from durable, sustainably sourced stainless steel.
Why have extra tablespoon sets?
When you consider that we use table spoons for everything from stirring our morning coffee to grabbing a snack of yogurt or pudding at the end of the day, having extra table spoon sets makes a lot of tabletop sense.
At INOX we know how important it is to have extra spoons for everyday use or when having guests over for dinner. That’s why our flatware selection includes tablespoon sets for your table setting. Each set includes 4 spoons and you can choose a unique flatware design or add an extra set to your existing flatware.
Specialty table spoons
Some occasions call for specialty flatware. Whether you’re hosting a wedding shower or baby shower with tea and cake or having friends over for a wine and cheese soiree, specialty table spoons add to the distinction of the occasion.
Let’s take a look at the unique table spoons you’ll find for sale at INOX flatware:
The Heart Table Spoon: These unique spoons are guaranteed conversation starters. Showcasing a polished heart-shaped spoon, our heart table spoon is available in Twig, Celia, Jason, Copper Ridge, and Sundance designs. The scooped-out hearts are perfect for stirring a frothy cappuccino or digging into a delicious apple pudding cake.
Packaged in a box with a plastic window for easy viewing, the 4-piece heart spoon tablespoon sets are easy to wrap for gift giving.
The Stilton Scoop: Some will want to point out that these scoops are not the same as a spoon. While made for scooping out portions of Stilton or Blue cheese without disturbing the rind, these specialty spoons are a great gift for cheese lovers.
However, many of our customers tell us that in between cheese soirees, they enjoy using these specialty spoons for scooping sugar into their coffee or spooning some honey or jam onto a toast.
Like our other 4-piece tablespoon sets, the Stilton scoops are a thoughtful hostess gift or wedding gift for a favorite cheese-loving couple.
