Disposables for Caterers and Event Planners

Using caterers? Confirm what the vendor will provide and request a breakdown of costs. Some caterers provide tables, tablecloths, and trash cans, others only bring food and drink.

When considering what disposables your event may need, here are a few factors to take into account:

What’s the weather forecast? If your event takes place at a time of year where rain or winter weather may occur, be prepared with hangers, coat check tickets and umbrella bags.

What’s on the menu? If you’re serving BBQ at an informal setting, such as a park or backyard, disposable tablecloths and napkins allow guests to enjoy their meals without worrying about messes. 

Is your event family-friendly? If you plan to provide treats for the little ones, such as cotton candy, popcorn, or homemade snow cones, you’ll also need sticks, bags cones, and plenty of napkins.
