Best Holiday Party Plates & Napkins

Party Idea Pros has gathered the best of the best in holiday party plates and tableware.  From Christmas tree to snowmen  to candy cane to Santa Claus to Hanukkah theme tableware,  you will surely find a holiday pattern to please your fancy. Most of the holiday party plates have matching and coordinating napkins but on occasion we come across a festive holiday beverage napkin without matching plates.  We have added them to the bottom of this list. Most sites recommend coordinating products but if not, simply pair with a solid plate or even a clear plastic plate.  One last note – we love combining patterns so do not hesitate to mix and match your plates and napkins.  Mixing and matching not only adds a festive touch, it also makes the entire look more chic and up to date.

Danny Meyer Thanksgiving Table Setting Ideas

Thanksgiving Paper Placemat Table Setting Ideas

Update!

Although the original autumn paper table setting placemats sold out long ago, we just found these very similar Farmers Market Paper Placemat Pads (and no, they are not limited time offerings – they are available all year round!)

We recommend you combine these stylish-yet-rustic paper placemats, paper napkins, and paper table runners, each adorned with a motif of fresh garden vegetables, to create a stunning Thanksgiving table.  The combination will result in the oft sought but hard to achieve sense of sophistication and quality that comes across as effortless.

Although I haven't completely made up my mind, with 50 relatives ringing the doorbell at exactly 1:00 on Thanksgiving Thursday, I am very tempted to go with this design aesthetic. The idea would be to combine the causal elegance of this  kraft paper design with my collection of fine china, Fiesta dinnerware and crystal stemware. Not only does this design blend seamlessly into my industrial modern home decor, I think it will make re-setting the tables in between courses so much easier – I can just snatch up the dirty placemats, toss them in the trash and add a fresh mat at each place setting  Plus, I could pull the look all together with copper colander centerpieces (filled with fresh seasonal vegetables, and cacti or ivy filler) and chalkboard chic food tags. Since I serve so many different dishes to satisfy a vast array of dietary restrictions, I think it might be helpful to label them all so individuals can choose whether or not to partake. And while I am thinking about it, wouldn't it be great to serve Moscow Mules in copper cups as a festive drink to visually compliment the centerpieces?

Happy Mardi Gras!!

You can't throw a Mardi Gras bash without food and especially a cocktail or two.  We have all the party drinks and snacks you will need to make your guests feel like they are celebrating Fat Tuesday the real New Orleans way.  To throw an authentic Mardi Gras party you have to include the traditional King's Cake with the plastic baby doll surprise inside, whoever ends up with the baby has to throw next year's party.   How cute would it be to bake individual cupcakes with decorative picks or plastic babies on top as a new spin on King's Cakes!

The food and drinks don't have to stop when the party is over.  Send your guests home with personalized candy bar wrappers, or to go hurricane glasses filled with beads, coins and candies.  How cute would it be to use colorful Mardi Gras Lollipops as a decoration for a dessert bar or as edible name place cards for your guest.  The possibilities for Mardi Gras food and drinks really are endless –  just be festive and have fun!
