I’m on a posting roll tonight, ladies!!! LOL
So, we’re doing the Masquerade/POTOpera theme. Well, sure, I can rent white china. Not gonna work, when I want to do white napkins, with a red rose tucked in. I AM renting flatware, LOL.
However, I found heavy duty reusable(for durability in my case, not actual reuse) plastic dinner plates. In fact, they have the whole dinnerware line. So, I’m wondering. it’s in my budget to rent. But, I can’t find black dinnerware available for rental. Dollar tree has them, @ $1/pp. And I could definitely reuse those at home(along with half my friends and family, LOL). But, I’d still have to have plates for the dessert bar, and people who want seconds(doing a buffet, with PLENTY of food), and of course cake. In order for that to work, I’d have to get 2 plates per person, for second helpings(I’m weird about using the plate again, unless I’m eating the exact same items again).
I’m renting wine glasses(none of us really drink champagne, and they can be used for other cocktails), and the flatware.
Lord, help me! In some ways, I think I’m overthinking this. In other ways, I’m thinking “Damn, that’s gonna be tacky”…LOL!!! I just figured, I’d get more, if I used the thick plastic catering plates, and just used a charger? HA!!! Now, I’m overthinking it again. Opinions please!!!
