Prayer has long been a way that people of faith have combated grief and anxiousness when a loved one is ill when they’re in a bad spot in their life, or when they just need some simple encouragement in their day-to-day lives.
But prayer is a two-way street. It’s not just about asking for prayer; it’s also about praying for others when they are in need.
Karen Berry, founder and owner of PrayerBowls is a believer in the power of prayer. Karen got her idea for the PrayerBowl during a difficult time in her own life. A few years ago, Karen got extremely sick, leading to multiple surgeries and treatments for her illness. Many of her friends and family members prayed to God each day to heal her, but it was one woman in particular who had a lasting impact on Karen.
This woman, named Angie, had prayed for Karen every day to be healed, yet had never met Karen before her sickness. She prayed for Karen every day for a year and said she kept a prayer bowl full of the names of people she wanted to pray for each day. From this simple gesture, Karen got the idea to make PrayerBowls, so that others could participate in their own daily prayer reminders.
PrayerBowls were created as a reminder to pray for those in need, even during very busy days. They can be placed in a common area, where it’s guaranteed to be seen every day by the owner, and new names can be written down and placed in the bowls.
There are currently two styles of PrayerBowls available; the Angie and the Celeste.
Both are beautifully crafted porcelain bowls that feature uplifting messages and stunning design. The Angie Set has an elegantly trimmed gold edge, as well as hand-applied Swarovski Crystals perfectly placed onto the bowl. The Bible verse on the edge is Philippians 4:6, which reads “Do not be anxious about anything, but in prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.”
The Celeste Set features a meticulously designed golden cross and hand-applied Swarovski Crystals. It features the verse Romans 12:12, which says “Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfast in prayer.” It’s a beautiful reminder to have hope and remember to pray for those who need it the most.
The term dinnerware may seem ambiguous, so how do you know what to include in your dinnerware product line and what markets to target? Dinnerware includes items such as plates, bowls, glassware, flatware, barware and even bakeware. These are items easily found on the kitchen or dining room table and sometimes referred to as tableware. Whatever term you wish to use, they are big business in gift and decorating markets.
Who needs and wants tableware? Every bride and groom wants the perfect place setting. Did you know that the bridal market accounts for almost half of all dinnerware sales? Most of these sales come from wedding registries. Think of wedding registry sales as your bread and butter while individual sales from glassware, bakeware and tea sets are icing on the cake.
Bring On A Hearty Appetite For Tableware
The key to selling tableware of any type is presentation. Just like with a meal, the visual aspect is what brings them to the table. Once you have drawn them in visually, they will explore the variety of tastes (or in this case prices) that are available. Brides tend to be visually driven without regard to price. Other customers tend to be “need” driven and conscious of price. Brides purchase dinnerware to establish their homes. However, other customers buy tableware items to enhance or update their existing dinnerware.
As a result, it is imperative that you have a mixture of both high-end dinnerware items as well as mid-priced tableware items. Offering high-end old English plates alongside moderately priced crystal glassware is a way to appeal visually to brides while capturing the interest of other customers. Keep in mind that wedding registry items are purchased as gifts. Brides may not be price conscious but the gift buyers may be. Creating a table with compatible items in a wide ranges of price keeps gift-givers from leaving empty handed. As brides make selections for their bridal registry remind them to include some moderately price items.
Brides aren’t the only ones sitting down to your table. Apply the same basic principles as you set the tables for these customers. Create a display table with eclectic flair. Put some modern pieces in with some traditional pieces. The main idea is to show the different type of products you are selling. By mixing mid priced with high-end pieces the focus shifts from price to beauty. Keep in mind that candle sticks, tea sets or even bakeware are bought as gifts for birthdays and anniversaries. Take time to set the table for these gift-giving events.
Since half of your sales will come from special occasions other then weddings, you need to market to them as well. Create event table settings with items that can be added to existing dinnerware items including suggestive signs like “the perfect anniversary gift”. Try this idea as a way to increase sales for birthday gifts: Set a table with stemware or other tableware items and a toaster with a sign that says “what do you think she’d rather have?” Using ideas such as these gives consumers ideas that they may not have thought of for gifts.
Dinner parties use placecards to direct guests. As you set the tables for your customers don’t forget the placecards (great anniversary gift, perfect for her birthday, etc.). If you set the table right they will buy. Setting the perfect table is easy provided you keep a few things in mind: variety in price points, convenient and easy wedding registries, effective signage. Of course to set the perfect table for your customers you need the right wholesale dinnerware.
