Compostable Party Plates
At $16 for 125 plates, why not choose the eco-friendlier option? These plates are biodegradable, but we promise they won't start dissolving while you're still eating.
Elegant Plastic Party Plates
When paper plates just won't cut it, these plastic options are the solution. They're disposable, but you can get more than one use out of them — and they come with utensils.
Eco-Friendly Disposable Utensils
These utensils will stand up to anything from BBQ to pasta salad — and they can be composted once the party's done.
Rolled Cotton Napkins
Cotton Cocktail Napkin ($19)
These innovative napkins come in a roll like a paper towel, for easy (and crowd-pleasing) distribution. Each roll comes with 50 napkins, and they come in a ton of colors to match your party theme, too. Plus, they can be washed and reused up to six times.
Pink Solo Cups
There's something nostalgic about a solo cup, and this pink pack of 50 is a cheeky way to add your own flair onto the classic party cup.
3-Gallon Beverage Dispenser
If you're only serving one drink, a bigger dispenser is necessary. This one has the added insurance of being unbreakable.
Party Drink Carafes
If you're seating people at separate tables, a six-pack of carafes let you place water or the beverage of your choice in each area, so no one runs the risk of being dehydrated.
Disposable Serving Trays
These paper serving platters are so cute in pink, but they come in four other colors, too. And since they're disposable, they make cleanup so easy.
Plastic Party Tablecloth
This is a classic plastic tablecloth — heavy-duty enough to avoid ripping mid-party or being picked up by a gust of wind, and available in dozens of colors and patterns to match your party theme. You can get more than one use out of them, too, if you're careful.
Stretch Table Cover
OK, the picture looks a little suspect. But these spandex table covers, which stretch over a table's legs, too, look surprisingly clean in person, especially if your party tables are getting old. They're super protective, heavy duty enough to use again and again, and prevent food from getting under tables, making cleanup easier.
