Paper party plates and wine glasses help make holiday theme parties successful
Whether it's a wine party or a candy cane party, having the right party favors like decorations and a good plastic fork ensure the party is fun and inexpensive.
Tired of the same old boring holiday parties? This year try throwing one with a theme, and save money on the party by purchasing all the paper party plates, wine glasses and a plastic fork and knife set online.
Looking to spice up the annual neighborhood holiday party? Why not try making this year's version a wine party. Ask each guest to bring a bottle or two of their favorite wine to be uncorked that evening. As the host, ensure there are plenty of wine glasses available to accommodate each guest.
Online sites like ReStockIt.com have several wine glass sets to choose from. Those looking for red wine glasses might be able to use this case of 12 Libbey 20 ounce red wine glasses. If white wine glasses are needed, try the Goblet Excaliber 10.5 ounce glasses.
For extra-large parties, disposable plastic wine glasses may be in order. At one point plastic wine glasses could be difficult to find, but now there are a variety of plastic wine glasses to choose from. These Waddington North American 5 ounce glasses seem to satisfy most needs.
Enough for the adults, let's look at the possibilities for children's holiday parties. Throw a Snowman Party, where the entire room is white and snowmen adorn the walls. Toss a bunch of styrofoam packing peanuts on the floor to give the appearance of snow. Make "snowmen" out of different sizes of white paper party plates. If you plan on making a lot of snowmen, this case of 1,000 Economy white paper plates may be helpful. Also, remember that sticking a plastic fork on either side of the snowman will give him arms, so be sure to have enough Dixie black plastic forks on hand.
A candy cane party can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. Welcome guests to the party by lining the front walk with candy canes. Use two oversized candy cane decorations to form an arch for guests to enter through. Crush some candy canes and sprinkle them on ice cream, and use candy canes as drink stirrers.
Or maybe this is the year that the formal office holiday goes casual. Instead of breaking out the fine wine glasses and china at some expensive restaurant, save money by hosting a pot-luck party at the office. Ask each employee to bring their favorite appetizer, and have management supply the beverages, paper party plates, and plastic wine glasses. Eating a meatball with a plastic fork won't deaden then jocularity.
However you choose to throw this year's holiday party, make sure you remember to spread the holiday cheer.
