Our list of Charming Party Basics just wouldn’t be complete without the perfect plastic party cups. You might be wondering how we could possibly argue that disposable partyware is charming, and while we’d normally agree, these clear tumblers are the exception. Their minimalist design is completely neutral, working seamlessly into a formal or informal partyscape and making them our favorite party cup.
These tumblers are kid friendly: convenient, sturdy and their low profile makes them nearly impossible to knock over. Plus they can be more than cups — think jello boats, mini trifles and parfait bowls. Available at grocery stores and party supply shops. We find the 9-ounce size to be the most versatile.
