Personally, if you want disposable plates the glass looking plastic kind look 100x nicer than paper. And paper plates and cloth napkins seems really odd to me. The website smarty had a party has lots of great looking disposable dishes that aren’t too exspensive.

I’m having those really nice, thick, biodegradable plates, and then I’m doing cloth napkins.  I see no reason why it would be bad!  I don’t think anyone will notice but you and the people you voice your concerns to.

I think paper plates and cloth napkins seems weird together, but like 

@chasesgirl said, there are some really nice disposables out there, in which case it might not be weird.

For a barbeque, I really don’t think most people will care about the plate. I do think they wll care about the napkin and will be so appreciative of a cloth napkin if you have them- something not too fancy of course. They are just so much easier to use and don’t fall apart with the sauce etc.

If you want to have the rental plates, I would do that in a heartbeat. You simply stack them back in the racks they come in, slip them inside a garbage bag and twist tie it shut. No fuss, no muss, no smell. It wouldn’t bother me a bit to have them wait like that until Monday.

I’m doing it.  We have the heavy paper plates that look nice, and blue cloth napkins.
