I'm not one to use paper plates a lot for personal use, but when we have a crowd I like to use pretty ones that go along with my theme or the season.
As you likely know quality paper products, the kind that aren't flimsy or fall apart easily, are pricey. (I do keep cheap ones just for the kids when they have sandwiches)
A few years ago a Christmas Tree Shops store opened up near us. I'd never been in one and my first time in was a delight! They are not a Christmas store, as many think, but they carry a great supply of seasonal decor, bed and bath products, dishes, wall decor, frames, toys, beauty products and some food items.
One of my favorite items that they carry are seasonal paper products. I buy for every holiday or season there, I also bought Emma's wedding napkins there!
This week I picked up some fall napkins and some plates, too. I've found if there are patterns I love, not to wait too long to get them! But they do replenish the supply for many weeks! In the autumn we have several birthdays, our annual Fall Fest (bonfire, hay rides, lots of food and games), and Thanksgiving! I do not use paper plates for Thanksgiving (though depending on circumstances, illness for example, I would without guilt!), but I do for the Fall Fest, and we go through lots of napkins all the time!
Aren't they pretty? These pretty leaves that have 40 napkins are only $1.99!
I also picked up these napkins this summer.
I bought them in two sizes because I liked the pattern so well! I may use them this summer still or save them for a birthday party. They would suit a party for a man very well!
So tell me where you buy your specialty paper goods or if you don't use them, tell me what you use instead!
This is not a sponsored post, but I'd be delighted to do sponsored posts for products or stores that I love!
