Cute Paper Plates

Throwing a party is like putting on a theatrical production. To put on the party– the “show”– you must first set up the behind the scenes flow. Every detail must be accounted for; every moment must be planned out. On its own, this takes work. Never mind the whole part about cleaning up after the party is over. 

And that’s where paper plates come in handy! One sweep through the room to collect all of the dirty plates for the dumpster offers a true logistical advantage over having to wash all of the dishes. 

Purchasing paper plates– in most cases– also costs less money than purchasing washable plates for a party. 

Using paper plates does not mean that you have to lose your style, though. In fact, there are so many kinds of paper plates out there with beautiful designs. You can rest-assured using paper plates will actually add to your party decor, not detract from it! 

Here are some of my favorite stylish paper plates for your consideration! As always, I have a variety of design tastes represented in this list. The first part of this list features patterned paper plates, and the second part features neutral, minimalistic options. 

Decorative Paper Plates

  • The first two plate sets on this list are inspired by my love for The Beverly Hills Hotel! One of my favorite memories is spending my grandmother’s 75th birthday there with both my mom and her. For those of you who don’t know, the hotel’s iconic decor includes palm leaf wallpaper and pink and white stripes (practically around every corner). So first, take a look at these lovely palm leaf paper plates
  • And now, check out these adorable pink and white, striped paper plates! Seeing both of these plates next to each other, I think it’s easy to understand how The Beverly Hills Hotel successfully put the two patterns together to create such an iconic look. 
  • This floral blooms paper plate set has my heart! I love the blue background and the beautiful floral design. My favorite color is blue and my favorite flower in the entire world is the hydrangea, so of course this design immediately caught my eye. Wonderful for a garden party or bridal shower, don’t you think?
  • These ombre decahedron plates are so cool! Not only have I never seen a plate in this shape before, but I have also never seen a plate with ombre coloring. Top all of this off with the gold trim, and you really have yourself a stylish paper plate. 
  • Having a going away party for somebody or an affair with an “around-the-world” theme? This set of plates featuring the world map will be absolutely perfect! 
  • For a neutral look, perhaps these scalloped, natural birchwood plates will do the trick. Granted, they aren’t “paper,” but with the unique border and versatile wood look, the style is too attractive not to include these on this list! 
  • Another natural, not-paper option for a memorable touch: these heavy duty, compostable plates made from fallen palm leaves. How gorgeous are these?! The multi-hued texture alone is stunning, not to mention the sleek shape and novel appeal. Your guests will love learning that they are made from leaves.

  1. That’s a beautiful variety of paper plates. Looks like there’s something suitable for any occasion.

    I actually like the simple pink and white striped plates the best, though I imagine it differently and not with the palm leaf plates which you say is reminiscent of Beverly Hills Hotel. Instead, I see the striped plates as summery or spring and they just look fun and happy to me, and would go great with cake and ice cream.

    I’d say that’s a nice selection of art for holding edibles.

    1. Hi BooBish!

      Thank you for your kind comments 🙂

      I love the pink and white striped ones too, and you are so right– they would be perfect for a spring or summer party with cake and ice cream! I can totally see it, and it brings a smile to my face just thinking about it. Awesome idea!

      Thank you for reading!
