oo disposable plates. They have some at party city! They look really pretty, and don’t hurt the environment! They also have the cutiest matching forks and knives!! Im going to look for a pic right now

Here they are! I was thinking of using them for thanksgiving until I came across the ikea 99cent plates. It didn’t make sense to buy them bulk for us because we wouldn’t be having 100+ guests for thanksgiving. But keep in mind that they are much cheaper than partycity when you buy in bulk!

We are using Vera Bradley plates, cups and cocktail sets for our bridal shower–it’s really pretty and they have loads of patterns that go with most colors.

 

@MrsNeutrino: LOVE THOSE!

How many people?  I’d go to the thrift store and buy mismatched plates when they have a 50% off sale.  Then just re-donate when you are done!

That’s what I’d do if I had to do it all over again.  I bought plastic plates that were white with a silver trim from bed bath and beyond after christmas (they were 50% off).  I bought clear plastic cups, napkins, disposable tablecloths, etc from an online supplier (lewis party supplies?). I wrapped my clear plastic flatware (costco) in the napkins and tied with raffia for a rustic/shabby look.  I used soft, muted colors (blues, pinks, yellows).  It was like “upscale shabby chic backyard wedding.”  Costco has a bunch of disposable serving places (look silver) around the holidays too.  All in all, I think it turned out well.

I’m sorry they are so big.  My photographer was very detail oriented.  Here is the last one of use dancing.  You kind of get a feel for the way it looked.

@luvmyDwight: It doesn’t show much.  Sorry!  I used mason jars (bought at Kmart online and Michaels for the big ones) and I painted them blue to look like vintage jars.  Anyway, hope it helps.  I wish you luck with your planning!

i encourage you to consider biodegradable products if you choose to use disposable! there are bamboo and post-consumer recycled pressed paper products out there instead of plastic.
