These Disposable Party Accessories Are So Pretty You Won't Want To Throw Them Away

Parties may differ when it comes to who, what, where, and how you're celebrating — but one thing that remains a constant at these occasions is paper goods. Not only does toss-able dinnerware make for easy cleanup, but it's also an opportunity to add extra, affordable flair. Whether it's the purple plates you ate cake from at that Barney-themed fifth birthday or the Dixie cups you sipped soda out of at that first summer cookout, history reveals that a party really isn't a party unless fitting paper dining accessories are present.
Since we're no longer singing, dinosaur-obsessed kids (well, maybe we still are on the inside) and red Solo cups won't always cut it, we sought out the chicest paper party goods available to complement any future festivity. The throwaway plates, cups, straws, napkins, and cutlery ahead are so cute you won't want to actually throw them away — even after licking the last bits of icing clean off their shiny, star-shaped, and multi-colored striped surfaces. Scroll ahead to pick out the paper party goods that will help stylishly pull together your next celebration.
