Does Miss Janice Use Paper Plates?

Well, it's time for Tablescape Thursday and I just didn't have a thing to share today. It's been one of those days...running here and there like a chicken with my head cut off! So, this will be something different for y'all!

People often ask me, "Do you ever eat off of paper plates"? My answer is, "absolutely...but they must be stylish"! Actually, I love to purchase paper products with cute designs...So, when I'm busy, I just have a quick lunch or light dinner served on paper plates with paper cups, set on a serving tray.

Stylish paper products, pewter flatware, and a cloth napkin...perfect for a sandwich and some Southern-style potato salad!
This pattern is perfect to use at "The Roost."
Of course, my beverage napkin coordinates...
I'm ready for a quick bite to eat and to sip some iced tea from my "Weekend Waterford"!

Y'all simply must know that my table settings are not fancy all the time at "The Roost," but they must be a little stylish!

Before you rush off to Susan's for some fancy tablescapes, does anyone know where my friend Teresa Jane can find this cute "Create" plaque?

Hi Janice...this is sooo cute...you need to link it to TT today! I should have known even your paper plates are stylish and wonderful! :-) Susan
P.S. The letters look like something Hobby Lobby might have...but I'm not sure.

Lori said...

But of course you would have very stylish paper plates. You ooze style! I adore the plates. . .very Charles Faudree.

Hi Janice! I love your paper plate tablescape. Only you can make it look so elegant! I'm showing a Valentine tea table and ignored one of your rules! YIkes!! You'll have to come and see me. After I downloaded my pictures - the rule slapped me in the face. I'm begging for forgiveness, oh Mistress of All Tea Knowledge!lol
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;0

I don't care whether it's paper - it's beautiful! Very elegant paper : ) Linda

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

I'm so happy to see that you use paper products. There are some really snazzy ones out there and I agree wholeheartedly...they are fine as long as they are stylish.

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Beautiful!

prof en retraite said...

Hi Miss Janice! I do love your toile plates! And did you know Charles Faudree calls his home "The Roost" also?? Very stylish! Love it!...Debbie

An Accomplished Woman said...

I buy paper products on clearance at Target and use them occasionally. Janice, your plates are very elegant as you are.

Nancy said...

Miss Janice, you are something! Why didn't I think of this?! I am the paper plate and napkin queen..I am addicted to them! I don't have those rooster napkins...I will have to look for them! This is so cute and right up my alley! Of course you would come up with something so smart, easy, but yet, elegant! Love you Miss Janice!!!! Blessings, Nancy

QueenBeeSwain said...

weekend waterford has me in stitches! where did you find it, I'd love to snap up some for my mother- she'd think it was hysterical!

xinex said...

Stylish paper products indeed! It just proves we don't need to use expensive dinnerware to create an awesome table...Christine

coco said...

Those are very stylish paper plates...I wouldn't want to throw them away! I love the rattan charger...where did you find those?

Libby Murphy said...

I'm with you, I am crazy about all the lush paper styles that are availble now. It such a great way to experiment with various colors, styles, and themes. Have a magnificent day.

bj said...

OOOO, darlin', you don't know how happy I am that you posted this about using paper. I LOVE pretty paper plates and napkins...yes, I, too, like to be stylish. I will admit to having just the cheap, white paper for hubby and I when we do quick meals and on the go to all the basketball games our grands are playing...On the whole, however, I do love the pretty ones!!
hugs, bj

redsoxmom said...

Ms. Janice,
Who says you can't have a lovely dining experience eating off of paper?! Love those roosters--they'd look nice at my roost, too! The napkins are especially cute. Adding real flatware is just the right touch. Love it.

Blessings,
Linda

Miss Janice said...

Coco, I purchased those chargers at Williams-Sonoma about a month ago.

Kathleen said...

Those ARE very pretty paper plates!
I love WmSonoma...I have the WS/PB outlet here, and I scout it almost evry week...

Kappa Prep said...

Paper can ALWAYS be chic! We use it often and the cleanup is SO easy too. If you have a local Homegoods check them out ASAP. They just a new shipment of Caspari paper products in. I really hit the jackpot yesterday!

Also, so sorry to be behind on emails, but I read yours and go ahead with your post/note. I am not connected in any way at all and am SO sorry this did not go as planned for you!!

Kara said...

Hi Jancie dear...
My word, why would anyone eat off of just plain white paper Chinet....one must have style even if it is just for oneself, I believe. I ALWAYS dress up my dinner ware. I even have those plastic sectioned "school trays" for the garden dinners. I do so love the weekend Waterford! How fabulous......I got that book on Southern Women you recommended. LOVE IT!!
Love you.
Miss Kara

Southern Savvy said...

Those toile plates are just adorable! I definately need some weekend waterford as well. Thanks for sharing!

Shana said...

Loving the Weekend Waterford. And those toile paper plates are too darn beautiful. Not sure I could bare throwing them away so I would probably never use them. Just like my candles. :)

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

Very cute post!

And very stylish!!!! ;o)

Shelia said...

Whew! I'm so glad I'm not in the tea bag dog house! lol
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Tootsie said...

every ounce of you is stylish and classy! including the paper!

Fifi Flowers said...

There are some GREAT paper products out there... you found some pretty ones!

Pug1 said...

You are too cute Miss Janice!!! I love the weekend Waterford!!!!!! the roosterware is lovely too!!! CHEERS! Michele

~CC Catherine said...

Miss Janice! I like this sweet and simple tablesetting! I think it's FAB! ;) The roosters are quite cute! I just found some luncheon plates this weekend that have little cool roosters on them! ;) ~CC Catherine

tardevil said...

I think Teresa Jane should try Steinmart or Home Goods. How's she doing, by the way? I love your paper setting, but the "weekend Waterford" was my absolute favorite. The checked tablecloth & rooster napkins were also nice touches. You can't go wrong w/ toile.

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Hi Jancie.. paper or not these are very stylish. I love anything with a rooster on it.. :-)and naturally your w/k waterford was the crowning touch..hugs ~lynne~

Kim Chalfant said...

Fabulous & stylish as always.

PAT said...

Miss Janice, this is beautiful!!

CC said...

I wish I could say that I know where to find that plaque, but it's cute like your pretty paper plates (an alliteration, awesome!- again!)

I love anything with roosters, but am very picky. I like yours, even though it's paper...

Thanks for sharing, Carolyn

Susan said...

Running late this week visiting blogs....

Hope you had a great Tablescape Thursday

Susan

Dish Diva aka Kay said...

You are just darling! The word "create" can be found at SteinMart.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Those are the prettiest paper plates and napkins I've ever seen! Love them. laurie

Glenda said...

I believe in matching the table setting to the occasion. Sometimes you should use your finest while at other times "ultra" casual is alright.

Cynthia's Cottage Design said...

Hi Janice!

wow!! those are the prettiest paper plates I've ever seen! what a cute and practical idea too!! Only you can make paper look so stylish! :)

Hugs, Cynthia

A Hint of Home said...

I loved your tablescape. I have some very pretty plates and napkins that I have taken in to a Bible study group at church. Tuesday morning is a good place to get them inexpensively.

Sincerely Yours said...

Hi Miss Janice! Well those are the prettiest paper plates I've ever seen!!! I do love good quality ones and often give them in a basket to my Mother-in-Law because she uses paper plates for many functions. I always try to coordinate the pretty napkins and the right size plates for the occasion. She loves them every time. I've even brought them in lieu of a dessert, etc. I couldn't see the picture that your friend was asking about (the plate) blogger pics aren't coming up on many sites I've visited in the last l/2 hour! Well have a wonderful weekend!!! I survived my first week of work but am very very tired!lol Sincerely, Jeannette

Kathleen Ellis said...

Oh, Miss Janice! You've just sparked my memory to all the pretty paper products I've got in my drawers!!! I guess they'll be showing up from time to time! I, too, love to collect beautiful paper plates and napkins for those times when "real" dishes just aren't practical or necessary! Yours are lovely...I love toile...a pretty setting for one!
Have a fabulous weekend!
;-D

Bo said...

Hi Miss Janice...If you hadn't told us these were paper plates, I'd never have known...BTW, I fear I have been making a huge error in the placement of my napkins when I place them under the flatware to the right...should I place them to the left under the forks? I love learning from you! ;-) Bo

Beaufort Belle said...

How perfectly charming. I WILL start looking for more stylish paper products to use.

Stop by when you get the chance,I tagged you for a fun little game.

Kelly said...

GORGEOUS! Miss Janice, I have the shakes over how lovely those paper products are! Very pretty!

Europafox said...

These are so lovely! I don't think I'll feel quite so bad about using paper plates now! :) By the way, I soooo wish I could attend one of your classes - it' such a shame you are o the other side of the pond! :(

Broady said...

Have seen "create" at Steinmart.

Lady Katherine said...

I love the roost paper plates! How wonderful! My children are always saying Mom! Use paper plates! They never want to wash dishes! lol Should I find these I would use them in a second! They are just as great as any lovely tablescape or tea you have done. Just love it!

Dawn-Hydrangea Home said...

Love those paper napkins!

LillyB said...

I've seen this sign at Hobby Lobby and the paper products are so pretty!!

Miss Janice, I love those plates! Can you tell me where you got them?

liosa said...

Miss Janice those plates are amazing! Where did you get them? They would be perfect for a party I'm throwing later this week.

Miss Janice said...

Liosa, I believe these plates are by Caspari. Good luck, as I bought them over a year ago:)
