Paper Plates?

Every year Mom brings out the China for Holiday dinners. My "New" SIL brought paper plates and plastic cups with her food. My Grams about about flipped. I reminded her that this is SIL first Holiday dinner with us smiled at her and told her it was ok she could take them back home with her. Grams wouldn't let it go for 20 minutes. Talking about how this was no picnic you eat off real plates and drink out of real glasses in her house. I kinda felt bad for SIL she didn't know, but on the other hand I punched my Brother in the arm. He knew! He knows how Grams likes her dinners. For petes sake we've only eaten our Holiday meals here our whole lives.

Such a petty thing to be upset about my Grams thinks its bad manners to host a dinner on throw away dishes.

Do you use China or Paper?

Paper at fmil's house, reg dishes at grandma's house, paper at mine.

I grew up with china, crystal, sterling silver, no dishwasher and hours spent washing dishes.  Now, we use paper plates, plastic cups, disposible turkey roaster, but regular silverware.

 I don't own "china".  We use normal plates, but I would't care at all if food was served on paper plates.

I feel bad for you SIL.  :(
