    Plastic champagne flutes can also be used as part of the decorations with a little ribbon and place candies or flowers in them.

    For me, your wedding day should be the one day when you have the best, plastic glasses and disposable cutlery will do for any other occassion, but not your wedding day.

    It is so funny that they make plastic silverware that looks just like the real thing. The first time I used them I didn’t know they were plastic until I picked one up and noticed the lack of weight. It is really nice looking stuff too.

    Love the idea of the reflective disposable cutlery! Looks great, but you can just throw it away after!

    You can also add a little flower center piece or arrangement to make the event so special without spending too much.

    What a great idea! If only I knew.. We threw a graduation party for our nephew 2 weeks ago and ended up using just the normal red plastic cups. These definitely look more presentable. Good to know for the future.

    Disposable tableware really is not a big deal. It saves a lot of dishwork at the end, and if the silverware looks real enough, you’ll be totally fine!

  20. Ann Marie Itschner Photography - August 25th, 2011 at 9:42 am

    Reflections cutlery looks promising. :) Thanks for sharing these practical ideas. These may come in handy for some of my clients.

  21. Sydney Harbour cruise - September 28th, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Using plastic items is definitely the way to go. There’s no need to be all fancy because once you do, the price increases substantially.

  22. how to make money - November 5th, 2011 at 6:45 am

    This really sounds practical but yet you can still make a very nice disposable champagne glass, it will still look very elegant. I would prefer this idea. I would love to try this on our 10th yr wedding anniversary.
