The paper plate is a great party supply that should be considered almost a requirement for the event. Actually every host and hostess should make use of paper plates for their party fun. Hosts and hostesses will be glad to have the ease of clean up after their parties plus the plates themselves can usually be picked out to match the party’s theme.
Guests will also appreciate ‘unicorn party plates’ (which is also known as ‘einhorn party teller‘ in the German language) plates because they can easily throw out one plate when it gets too greasy or covered with leftovers in order to get themselves a fresh plate for their second or third helpings.
Paper plates are made to fit any party theme. There are paper plates that fit with children’s cartoon shows such as Dora the Explorer and Sesame Street. Kids love colorful items and these themed plates make a bright, colorful accent to children’s parties. Plus the kids get the bonus of seeing their favorite cartoon character every time they clean their plates.
Adult parties can often find appropriately themed plates as well. Mardi Gras themed paper plates are brightly colored and designed. Older birthday party plates usually feature the number of the birthday in bold across the plate. The 30th, 40th, 50th and 75th birthday party plates are most often designed like that with the number in a bright blue or purple color on a black background.
You needn’t worry about the paper plates not holding up to the many different kinds of foods you’re liable to have at your party. Most party plates are coated with a thin layer of wax or plastic to make them more resistant to wetness so they won’t go all soggy with barbeque sauce. This also helps to preserve the images printed in ink on the paper.
