Yep, better than plastic (probably), but disposable cutlery is terrible generally and not even necessary. Plates could get broken in the garden, but cutlery is pretty much indestructible.

Oh dear, don't say that - I've only got about 6 forks and knives :( It's a good point though.

Definitely buy ice, it’s like £1 a bag. We usually get a big plasterers bucket and put 4/5 bags of ice in, a bit of water and then fill with fizz and beers.

We have another plasterer bucket to throw empties
in too, like a compliant alcoholic production line :lol:

I've just come back from the garden party. There were more sweet things than savoury - largely because of people dropping out at the last minute and leaving things unbalanced, but one good idea that I can pass on is mini chicken tikka bites - you just put dollops of mango chutney on tiny poppadoms and top with bought chicken tikka chunks. They were very popular and will have been easy to make.
