HELP! Where do I buy paper party bags on the high street??

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?!

Try your local Chinese or Indian takeaway, ask nicely and offer to pay.

Or if you have a big Chinese supermarket or Indian food store near you they often have a section of foil containers and paper bags somewhere at the back.

They sell them in Home Bargains, think you get a pack of about 8 for 69p x

My nearest Home Bargains is miles away, sadly. However, have just got some from a lovely local cafe - success! Thank you both.

Try the local grocers'? I know the one near me sells them.
