Every week we host Community Group and have between 20-50 people. We eat together and usually use paper products. The problem is, sometimes you run out and the glass plates can be bulky/cumbersome. The solution? Wal-Mart! You can get 4 packs of plates, bowls, grown-up cups and kids sized cups for $1.00 for a set of 4. For under $20 I got 16 adult cups, 18 kids cups, 16 bowls and 32 dinner plates.
Aren't they so cheerful?
Throw in a couple packages of disposable forks...
Wet wipes for kid clean-up, napkins and straws, and we're ready to party!
The old, cluttered drink glass cabinet
The new and improved drink cabinet. We're using Mason Jars for Iced Tea glasses by the way, I highly recommend it. There aren't too many things quite as happy as a Mason Jar filled with Sweet Tea and a Lemon Wedge.
These are salad plates that we never use. So, I'm selling them in our yard sale. It feels like a rebel move. Like I'm breaking some sort of law selling part of a set of dishes. But why not? If we never use them, they need to go.
Out with the old, in with the new.
These are going to be so easy to get down for large gatherings. I went ahead and added plastic forks, straws, napkins and wet wipes to this shelf and now we're ready for business. We can have them hand washed, dried and put away in 10 minutes.
