A Little Cherry Pizza Party
Either way, the idea of slaving over a hot stove and washing up stacks of dirty dishes is unlikely to inspire happy thoughts.
Of course, hosting everyone’s birthdays, end of term parties, sport-spectating weekends and so on might have sounded like a good idea, and it will no doubt be fun. However, the planning, preparation and general fuss involved is something everyone could do without.
So, what can you do?
Oh yes, whatever your age, whatever the occasion, pizza is the answer.
That is why we now stock pizza-friendly 12-inch plates. And not only are our pizza plates practical, made of attractive and durable palm leaf material, but they are also eco-friendly and easy to dispose of thanks to their biodegradable nature.
What’s more is that our case of 100 is great value for money, giving you an impressive stock of green, disposable plates that you can store and use for all the pizza parties in your social calendar.
To see how to keep the easy eco-friendly theme going, read the below tips on how to throw a Little Cherry Pizza Party.
Green and Easy Essentials
As well as our fabulous palm leaf pizza plates, you’ll need things like paper napkins, disposable cutlery (for when grabbing a slice won’t do), and dip pots like these paper ramekins. Once you have these essentials mastered (and, of course, the pizza), you can’t go wrong.
Refreshingly Light Libations
You’ll need something light and refreshing to wash all that pizza down, and might we suggest homemade lemonade? Now, lemonade doesn’t just come from lemons, so try mixing it up with pink lemonade, mint-infused lemonade, and any of these variations. Keep plenty of cold water on hand too, just in case anyone needs a quick, cold, no-frills drink.
Master the Mains
If you are going for store-bought pizzas, try to keep the flavours varied, and opt for brands that use less (or at least recyclable) packaging, so you can keep waste to a minimum. On the other hand, if you are making the pizzas from scratch, be sure to find out what everyone likes.
Thin crust, deep pan, stuffed crust, preferred toppings, who can handle spice, which guests only eat Margherita and so on. Making things to order, or making three kinds of pizza and letting everyone fend for themselves, will save you hassle in the long run. Alternatively, lay out the ingredients, hand out the bases, and let your guest build their own pizza.
Pizza for Pudding!
If you thought pizza was just for dinner, think again. Make the most of your pizza plates – and make your guests’ day – by serving pizza for pudding. Sweet pizzas are all the rage, and they allow everyone to enjoy all of their favourite sweets and fruits, in one convenient dish. See sweet pizza ideas here.
Make it a Movie Night
Last but not least, provide entertainment at your pizza party with a movie screening. You can put it out to vote, or you can grab a few movies to work your way through. Why not let youngsters watch the pizza-loving turtles in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles whilst adults can keep the Italian theme going with The Godfather franchise, or similar.
Of course, these tips are just to get you started. Depending on whether your pizza party is for kids or adults, you could have fun with DIY pizzas, indulge in gourmet recipes, or enjoy finding out which cocktails suit what toppings. Just make sure you stock up on plenty of practical, pizza-party-and-planet-friendly supplies from Little Cherry!
