Formal Disposable Plastic Dinnerware

In general, plastic or paper plates are somewhat unattractive, but disposable plastic dinnerware has made its mark in options for formal dinnerware for various occasions.  The advantages that this type of dinnerware offers are simply amazing and its acceptance is remarkable. 

I first ran across the use of this fancy looking dinnerware at a corporate Christmas party that was catered by a wonderful local catering company.  First appearance was that the tables were set with formal china, silver flatware and crystal goblets, which this particular caterer is known for.  A second look revealed that the dinnerware was actually plastic disposable dinnerware.

I was impressed with the table settings and the quality of the dinnerware that was used.  Considering that is made of plastic, it was extremely durable which was something I didn't expect.  Since my first introduction to this elegant disposable dinnerware, I have seen it used at various formal functions.  In my opinion, it is tasteful and stylish, as well as practical.     

Advantages and Acceptance of Disposable Plastic Dinnerware

The advantages of plastic disposable dinnerware are that it is much less expensive than fine china, especially if you are serving a lot of guests.  It is disposable, so clean up is a breeze, and it contributes to the aesthetics of a formal gathering.

It is perfect for corporate functions, family reunions, holiday dinners, and it is even acceptable to be used as wedding dinnerware.  It will add to the formal décor while minimizing the tasks involved in cleaning up after the gathering.

Where to Look for Fancy Disposable Dishes   

The type of disposable dinnerware that is appropriate and classy for formal occasions can be found through party or catering suppliers.  Many wedding shops make them available to the public and you can even get them from online sources.  Buying in bulk will usually save you some money if you intend to serve large groups, or to use disposable dishes often.

When shopping online, using the term disposable wedding dinnerware will definitely take you to the type of disposable dinnerware that you are looking for.  Otherwise you will find yourself looking through a bunch of paper, bamboo and plastic plates that are ideal for home use, but rather tacky for formal gatherings.

There are some disposable dishes that mimic fine dinnerware patterns.  Some even have an embossed appearance.  These look like high-scale fine china, but still give the benefits of being disposable for stress-free dinner parties, wedding dinners and receptions.
