High quality plastic party supplies
High quality plastic party supplies are a much better option than paper or “real” plates. Don’t believe us? Here are ten reasons plastic plates, cups, and utensils are much better than their alternatives.
1. Stands up to more use.
When you use a paper plate, you can pretty much only use it once before it needs to be thrown away, especially if you are eating something that has any moisture in it at all. This means that during a party, you and your guests will go throw many more paper plates and cups than you will plastic plates and cups. If you’re serving anything that’s even a little bit sloppy, plastic party supplies are a much better idea than paper.
2. More environmentally friendly.
You may be thinking, isn’t biodegradable paper much more environmentally friendly than plastic? The truth is that plastic can be recycled, and because you will use much less of it during your party than you would use paper supplies, you’ll be consuming, overall, less throughout the course of the party. Some people even go so far as to wash their plastic plates and use them again, which is something that is absolutely not possible when you use paper.
3. More economically friendly.
The ability to use fewer plates throughout your party means that you have to buy fewer plates, which means you are spared from having to spend twice as much money just on plates, utensils, and cups. When you buy plastic instead of paper, you may have to pay a little more, but you have to buy fewer plates in general, and can therefore save money on your party planning.
4. More functional.
Have you ever tried to put a hamburger, chips, fruit, and dessert on a single plate? It just doesn’t work when you have a flimsy paper plate. A plastic plate, on the other hand, can easily stand up to that kind of punishment. If you’re serving hearty foods at your party, you are going to want a plate that can hold that food, without buckling. Even healthy foods like fruit can soak through a paper plate in no time, but are no match for plastic plates.
5. More color and style options.
Paper plates pretty much only come in one color: white. If you want to find plates and cups that match the colors you have chosen for your party, you are going to want to choose high quality plastic party supplies instead. You’ll be able to find a much wider variety of colors, so you can mix and match as needed. This is essential for parties that center around a certain theme or for parties set in a venue that demands a certain color theme. Our selection of plastic plates, cups, and utensils give you a much better selection of colors to choose from, so you are not tied just to white plates with a tacky floral trim like you’ll find at most grocery stores.
6. Wide variety of patterns.
The biggest perk of choosing plastic over paper is the ability to get a more complex design or style. Some plastic supplies are made to look exactly like real china or real silverware, which can class up your party, without requiring you to actually use real silverware and china, which can be extremely expensive. If you want a special pattern or style to match your party’s theme, plastic is usually going to be your best bet.
7. Easier to clean up.
If you use real glass or china plates, you are probably going to have to wash all of the before and after your party. Even if you have a dishwasher, this is going to be an arduous task. When you use plastic, however, you can simply sweep all of the cups, plates, and utensils into the recycle and put them out for pickup. There’s no washing up! Cleaning up even after a small party can be very tiring. If you’d rather be able to socialize with the few stragglers or just go to bed after an exhausting party, plastic is the way to go.
8. More functional for a large party.
If you’re throwing a large party, you probably do not have enough real plates, silverware, and cups to furnish all of your guests. Even if you do, getting it all out, cleaning it beforehand, and then cleaning it afterwards can be difficult. Plastic is the much better choice, especially if you aren’t quite sure exactly how many people are coming to your party. This is the best way furnish a large party with the plates, cups, and utensils that they need.
9. More fun.
One of the biggest benefits of taking this route over using paper or real supplies is the ability to offer your guests a plate, cup, and fork that matches the color and/or theme of the party itself. This can be much more fun than your everyday glassware and utensils and certainly more fun than plain white paper plates. You can also find plastic products like champagne flutes and wine glasses that you might not keep around your house on a daily basis, but which you might want for this party.
10. Easy to store.
When the party is over, you’re likely to have a few plates, cups, and utensils left over. Because they are plastic, all you have to do is put them in a bag and you can use them indefinitely!
