Is there really anything that brings people together more than sitting over a steaming cup of freshly ground coffee or lovely aromatic tea? Having a sugar bowl and a creamer lets you relax into the conversation and not worry about going back and forth to the refrigerator or pantry for milk, cream or sugar.
Why should I choose a sugar bowl and creamer?
A sugar bowl is a little bowl designed to hold a bit of sugar, along with a small serving spoon, so that your guests are able to help themselves to the amount of sugar that they want. Many people choose a sugar bowl over a sugar dispenser that pours the sugar into their drink because it allows you to better control the amount of sugar you are adding.
You and your guests might enjoy a splash of milk or cream in your coffee or tea, and the perfect way to do that, without leaving a jug out, is a lovely creamer. These are crafted with a spout and handle for easy pouring, making your coffee or tea prep much easier and cutting down on spills.
What materials are available for my sugar bowl and creamer?
Though most often made of earthenware or glass, there are still many options in materials, colors, shapes and sizes to choose from for your sugar bowl and creamer. There is quite a variety of matched sets available for purchase, or perhaps you would prefer a mismatched set to add a bit of the Mad Hatter's whimsy to your tea or coffee service.
PRO tip: Make sure the creamer has a wide base, specially made to keep the creamer from being knocked over onto your table.
