You can buy bulk Christmas crackers from Stephensons so you that you can have peace of mind that you'll have plenty in stock for your various festive events.

In our selection of Christmas napkins, you'll find a variety of sizes from cocktail napkins to larger dinner napkins. These ranges all have a festive feel, with plenty of red and green colours to pick from, creams, gold, stylish grey, and even statement-making black.
We have plenty of plain napkins if you would prefer to keep your table settings on the simpler side and would like to stock up on more versatile napkins that can be used for other occasions, not just for Christmas. These are Tork dinner napkins that are reliable and good quality for restaurants, pubs, hotels, and so on. You can also find 8-fold dinner napkins for something more formal and efficient.
If you do want to invest in napkins that have a festive Christmas design, there are plenty of choices to explore. If you love relaxed, rustic stylings then the Duni Natural Charm range is an excellent option. An attractive snowflake pattern formed of green and white foliage on a neutral background, this festive tabletop range is as charming as its name suggests. It would work wonderfully in restaurants and pubs that have a casual atmosphere, and perhaps have a focus on rustic farm-to-table style menus with fresh seasonal ingredients.
The Duni Christmas Tradition range of napkins and placemates follows classic Scandinavian stylings for a cosy festive feel. An ideal choice for informal Christmas catering settings that is sure to bring warmth and cheer to your Christmas dinner settings. These are just a few examples of the extensive Christmas catering napkins and table setting essentials you'll need for the festive season.
While stocking up on your catering Christmas crackers and napkins is essential, candles are another must-have item to add to your festive tabletops. No matter what the time of year, candlelight can create a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere in any dining space, but when it's cold outside there is something even more inviting about a soft glow from a delicate flame.
At Stephensons, we have an excellent range of quality Christmas candles that are suitable for professional hospitality environments. From traditional altar candles that will make wonderful centrepieces, to slimmer tapered candles that will sit elegantly in a candelabra or bring some rustic charm when placed into a bottle-turned-candleholder, you'll find something to brighten up your Christmas dinner tables. We also have a selection of attractive candleholders for tealight candles if this is preferable for your catering Christmas dinner needs.
There is nothing better than a comforting hot drink on a cold winter's day, and its even better when enjoyed from a festive Christmas cup. We have great quality takeaway coffee cups and lids with Christmas designs to help bring some yuletide cheer to your customers. These are ideal for cafés, coffee shops, food vendors, and for catering outdoor events such as Christmas markets and winter festivals.
In addition to these Christmas coffee cups, you can also find a range of hot drinks machines and accessories. These are perfect for keeping your batches of traditional mulled wine warm for customers, both inside and for outdoor venues. This range also includes toughened glass mugs that are perfect for serving these hot Christmas drinks, as well as some delicious hot chocolates.
