Make party clean-up easier, and use disposable tableware!


Let’s be honest, unless you are throwing a kid’s birthday party, disposable tableware does not immediately come to mind when you’re styling an event…but it should! Like the virtual rides at Universal Studios, paper party goods have received an impressive upgrade these last few years - and let us not forget about the flattering and environmentally friendly cutlery options now available. Summer is an especially good time to cut down on your clean-up, so you can spend more time outside, and these products will help you do just that!

Let's jump right in to my favorite provider, Sophistiplate. The name truly says it all - Sophistiplate offers unique patterns and styles, guaranteed to elevate your party, your guests won't believe they're using paper plates and disposable utensils. I dare you not to buy the whole shop!



Flamingos, pineapples, palms...OH MY! Summer is in full swing and these festive products are a must at your next pool party, birthday, girls night. Let's face it, you don't even need to be throwing a party to want these charming products at your table, and that's OK - treat yoself with these items from Favor Lane Party Boutique!


I'm definitely partial to gold plastic ware; however, I;m noticing an increasing number of options for wooden utensils popping up everywhere. These fun plastic alternatives, available through Meri Meri, are made from high quality pale birch wood and great for an outdoor event.


Tea party anyone?! Hosting a tea part is on my “party bucket list” for 2020. I have my husband’s great-grandmother’s fine china tea cups (you definitely need the real deal there) and these paper plates (Shop Sweet Lulu) would be such a lovely addition. Perhaps I'll even extend an invite to the Queen of England! Just kidding....maybe...


Lastly, I'm crushing pretty hard on this tablescape by Harlow & Grey for my New Years Eve party! I love how the attractive and high quality disposable products can hold their own next to crystal glassware (because let's be real, nobody wants to drink champagne out of a paper cup on NYE) and sophisticated decor. I have been dreaming of hosting a Gatsby-inspired, murder mystery dinner party for the last few years and I am so excited I finally have the time!


Happy Hosting!
