Disposable but Beautiful: How to Spruce up Disposable Dinnerware for Events

Posted on: 5 December 2018


Once upon a time, disposable dinnerware was boring. It lacked the sophistication and elegance of its china or porcelain cousins. It is no surprise then that you may be cautious about using paper plates or cups for an event. However, disposable dinnerware has come a long way in terms of its materials, colours and styles.

Despite that, many people prefer the real thing. After all, when you have relatives to impress, you may think that you can only do that with china dinnerware or something similar. However, disposable dinnerware is more versatile than you might think.

If you are thinking of choosing disposable plates and cups for your next event, the following tips will help you to get the best out of them.

Match Your Dinnerware With Your Wedding Theme

Disposable plates and cups come in many colours and designs. Choose a colour that complements the other colours on display at your event. If you have gone for an autumn colour scheme, for example, you could choose brown or orange dinnerware.

Similarly, the style of your dinnerware doesn't have to be limited to round plates and paper cups. Disposable plates, cups and glasses are also made of glass-like plastic to add a touch of sophistication that can't be achieved with paper plates and cups.

Add a Touch of Greenery

Your disposable plates don't have to be bare. Place sprigs of herbs or flowers, such as lavender or thyme on a napkin set upon each plate to add colour and life to it. Not only will your plates smell nice, but they will also look much more elegant than a plain paper plate.

Plastic cutlery can also be spruced up with a hint of greenery. Wrap a ring of herbs or flowers, such as daisies, around each set of cutlery. This little touch will delight your guests and leave a good impression.

Beautify the Immediate Area

Turn your tabletops into beautiful scenes that encompass your dinnerware. Show your guests how much thought and planning went into your event by decorating your tabletops with flowers, beautifully folded napkins and even carefully chosen tablecloths. This will ensure that your disposable dinnerware doesn't look out of place when your guests sit down to eat.

If you are planning a large event in future, opting for disposable dinnerware can save you a lot of money. Seek out a reputable event catering supply company near you if you think that disposable dinnerware is suitable for your upcoming event.
