I think these paper accessories really are pretty and most important, they don't look cheap! They look dainty, arty, unique, pretty - call it what you like! But not cheap! (even though they are...)
So think of a theme and choose your matching table accessories to create a really beautiful, different tea party or picnic event - at a price that won't break the bank!
For instance, the lovely paper plates above can come in useful for winter teatime get-togethers. Finish the turkey left-overs or the mince pies on these beautiful plates. They also have matching napkins, and a number of other accessories to make your table all-of-a-piece.
These sort of table accessories make designing your party/festive table a really fascinating project. You can save your really beautiful special plates for those family occasions like Christmas dinner or Thanksgiving.
For your more casual get-togethers, these paper plates will still make your guests feel that you have gone to a lot of trouble to make the occasion special.
