PartyPail Tip: Paper Plates
Our baby shower paper plates generally come in 2, or 3 sizes, depending on the pattern, manufacturer, and style. The smaller sized plates, sometimes referred to Luncheon Plates are 7" - 8" in size, and are perfect for serving cake or smaller appetizers. The mid-size baby shower plates, referred to as Dinner Plates, are 9" - 10" in size, and are perfect for buffets or larger appetizers. Some baby shower patterns also offer a Banquet Plate, which are generally 10.5" - 11", and are appropriate for a more sit-down type application.
Some of the paper plate patterns come in themes that work for both boy or girl themed showers. An example is our Tickled Blue
and our Tickled Pink
patterns. The designer of this pattern essentially reused the theme and design in different color pallets to meet the gender specific needs of these showers.
