    Can someone advise the best place to shop for clear plastic party plates, forks and napkins? The clear ones are quite expensive. I checked Ollie's and they don't sell them. Do they sell them at the Dollar Tree or Dollar Store?
    I've bought them at Kroger. Clear plastic wine glasses too. I'm sure both Wal-mart and Publix carry them.

    Thanks for the tips. I wish we had a Wegman's. I'll check, but I don't think we do. We do have a Party City. I guess the prices there aren't bad, but still. It'll be about $40.00 just for the plates. I have to buy for at least 100, so I plan to get a few extras. I also have to get the cups, utensils, and napkins.

    I know people with a membership to Sam's and Costco, but I have to arrange to meet them if our schedules allow.

    I'll figure it out. I'm going to just go with white and clear and keep it simple.

    Debb Try restaurant supply places or if you are okay with online ... you can try searching for "bulk" plastic plates

    Clear Plastic Plates | Clear Disposable Plates - WEBstaurant Store ... and try someplace like rhat or check Amazon.

    Smart & Final is a good source for disposable plates/utensils/supplies for parties, picnics, etc.
    I think we got that stuff for our wedding there (many years ago...).
    I have trouble saying that store's name out loud. I don't know why, but I mix up the sounds and the name comes out like a junior-high joke...

    I worked with a guy many years ago who called it "Fart and Smile." Twenty-ish years later, I still have to pause for a second before I say the name of the store

    Yup, that's how I say it. Even when I don't set out to do so.
    I'm glad I'm not the only one!

    Smart and Final, aren't around here, but I think I did find a place that has good deals. I'm checking it out today.

    No time to order online. I was just notified on Sunday. Too short notice, IMO. Don't get me started, but anyway....I'm going to do the best I can and not stress.
