I am not using disposable plates, but I had to make a comment. Please don’t put beads on the plates or anything else that would have the possibility of getting into the food on the plate. It would be terrible for one of your guests to break a tooth or worse choke on whatever it is. If you really want to use disposables, get the clear plates and paint some designs on the bottom of the plates. That way there is no chance of your decoration harming anyone.

I actually saw something on a HGTV show… they were re-vamping a bar in a house for a christmas party… They used clear glass plates and decoupaged wrapping paper to the bottom of the plates… (like the backside) so nothing was near or on the food. This would definitely work for clear plastic plates…

I found this crappy little tutorial… http://www.hgtv.com/search/results.do?hgSearchString=decoupage+plates&hgSearchType=HGTV.com

Anyway, they used wrapping paper that was blue with silver stars on it. So wrapping paper is definately cheap! and clear plastic plates are too! Also, I’m pretty sure that decoupage is just a mixture of white glue and water, maybe some corn starch or something… so that’s also something that’s really inexpensive.

good luck!

We bought all of our plates at Dollarama (a dollar store). I know they don’t have Dollarama in the US (if that’s where you live), but a friend of mine (who lives in Florida) bought hers at a dollar store as well. They were actual china plates. Dinner plates and dessert plates. The ones that she bought came in either cream or white with either gold or silver trim. Simple, yet elegant.

instead of disposable paper plates, have you thought about bamboo plate and cutlery. they look much nicer, and are way sturdier.

its really nice,and i think quite a few places do it now, though i have no idea where you would find them in the US!
