Casual But Classy Party


I have a special group of friends who get together every few months at someone’s home just to enjoy some time together.  They do not require anything elegant.  In fact, after dinner they will not relax until the table is cleared, dishes are done and food all put away.  So, I make it as easy as possible.  These pictures prove you can use disposable plates and utensils and still have an attractive looking table.

For this party, we started in the living room using my coffee table spread with appetizers and sparkling grape juice.  We chatted and then proceeded to the dining room for dinner.  Chicken salad sandwiches on croissants  (a favorite of this group) were served on a pedestal cake place.  I made a couple salads and had very happy guests.  Everything else was disposable so we wrapped it all in the plastic table cloth and disposed of that quickly.  I found very nice larger-size silver plasticware at the dollar store.  It looked almost real.

It was simple to prepare and simple to clean up, giving more time for the fun stuff.  After a couple of games of Bingo, we enjoyed dessert.
