Best Holiday Party Plates & Napkins

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.
