I actually want them primarily for putting food in, i.e. each child will get a bag with sandwich, juice, crisps and grapes or some such, rather than loads of plates of stuff laid out (less hassle and less waste, I'm hoping) before the birthday cake comes out.
I thought it would be easy to find sturdyish paper bags to buy from supermarkets/WHSmiths etc, but I can't find any anywhere. I can get them online, I know, but would need to go for express delivery now (the party is on Sunday) and I'm baulking at paying £7+ postage for £3 worth of bags... Can anyone help?!
