Preparing for Christmas

Despite fears that Christmas will be cancelled this year, many businesses are still planning their annual festive celebrations. In fact, according to a report1 that was released earlier this year, some 3.6m people had already started booking their Christmas party or meal out. So despite the uncertainty, it’s important that businesses in the catering and hospitality industry get prepared so that they are not caught short come December.

That’s why we have launched our Christmas Catalogue. It’s bursting with a wide range of fun and must-have festive supplies to suit a variety of budgets, including party favourites such as hats, streamers, balloons, balloon rockets and party poppers. Matching tableware is also available, with crackers, napkins, and table covers coming in a variety of coordinating colour combinations, such as red and green, silver and white, red and cream, and black and gold.

As well as standard crackers, once again, our customers can shop sustainably, enjoying our increased selection of charity and eco crackers. Fully recyclable, these eco-friendly crackers have removed all single use plastic content, whilst plastic ties have been replaced with raffia and ribbon alternatives. We have also said goodbye to glitter; instead high shine boards and sophisticated embossed finishes are used.

And it’s not only the cracker itself which is sustainable – the contents are fully recyclable too! As well as the usual hat and joke (printed on recyclable paper), the recipients will receive a game, toy, or tree decoration made from metal or FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) wood.

Inside, there will also be a scroll with information about The Trussell Trust. This charity supports a nationwide network of food banks to provide emergency food and care to people locked in poverty, and campaigns for change to end the need for food banks in the UK. For every case of Tom Smith Eco Christmas Crackers sold, £2.00 will be donated to this worthy charity.

Available to view online, or as a hard copy from local distributors, the catalogue caters for a wide choice of budgets, with standard, superior, finest, premium and luxury collections available.
