Smarty Had A Party Review

I might have mentioned that we like to bbq at my house quite a bit. The question we face every time is do we use regular plates and risk them breaking or buy plastic plates. It usually depends on how organized I’ve been or how festive I’m feeling. My problem with buying plastic plates is that I find them boring. There are limited selections were I shop so it’s not very fun. I’m pretty much limited to white round and red, blue and yellow round. I was excited to have the opportunity to review Smarty had a Party products for that reason.

They have thought of everything to have an elegant outdoor party. That’s their slogan “Elegant Disposable Dinnerware”. Maybe elegant can’t be used to describe our backyard bbq’s but I can tell you that everyone was impressed with the quality of the products. I choose to review the square tuxedo plates. I’m a sucker for square plates! These plates were amazing. They held up to sharp knives and because I really wanted to test them out they even stood up to the dishwasher! We used these plates 3 separate times before they’d had enough abuse. That is a quality disposable plate!

In the package I also received plastic forksspoons and knives. These held up to my kids and the knives were sharp enough to handle tri-tip and ribs. The dessert plates were fun and triangle shaped. The kids at the party loved that we let them drink their soda from  wine glasses. They felt very grown up! I wish my camera hadn’t died that week so I could show you how cute they were pretending to be princesses drinking their sparkling pink soda from fancy glasses.

If you have a wedding or other more formal affair in your future you owe it to yourself to check out the Smarty had a Party website. Their products are fun and affordable. They’ve thought of everything from chair covers, tulle and candles to cake toppers, party fountains and evening party bags. If you are looking for a fun way to spice up your casual bbq’s they are still a great site to add some variety. The prices are reasonable and often times less expensive than the boring ones at the store.

I was given a gift pack of Smarty had a Party products for review purposes. I was not financially compensated for this review and this is my honest opinion. Thanks to The Product Review Place for bringing me this opportunity.
