There are times in your life when you need your best dinnerware, and times when you need the best throw-away option. Using regular plates is fine for intimate evenings at home, but may not be the right choice for a child's birthday or another event with more than a handful of guests.
In choosing the best disposable options, we looked beyond the price tag, although our selections are all affordable. We focused on the durability offered, such as AmazonBasics Clear, which has a sturdy, plastic construction that holds up well under weight, and Glad Tabletop Square, which is comprised of 5 layers for strength.
We also kept the environment in mind for our "green" readers, and we included the Stack Man Compostable that is both strong and eco-friendly, as well as the Chic Leaf Party Pack, which is also compostable and quite stylish at the same time. Design played a part in our choices, like IOOOOO's Lacy Rim, which has a fancy cut-out design that works well for formal events, and Aya's Cutlery Kingdom Premium with its simple, elegant design that mimics fine china. As you make your final selection, do not forget the flatware your guests need to enjoy your party foods.
