Indeed, why not? After all disposable dinnerware is cheap and easy, and these days comes in nice shapes and styles. To answer this question, we need to take a page from Marketing 101. Marketers have long discovered that people don't buy products, they buy experiences, feelings, emotions. When they subscribe to a weight loss program they're not buying a pill or even lower weight, they're buying the feeling of being fit and good looking. When the buy a luxury car, they're not buying gleaming wood or leather seats, they're buying status and prestige.
The same goes for fine china. The plates we eat and serve on are not just utensils to hold food and prevent tables from getting dirty, they create an experience. When you serve on Lenox Kingston or Villeroy & Boch Acapulco you are engendering feelings in your family and guests, feelings of warmth, class and love. Feelings that will create fond memories of you and keep them coming back.
If you want to your guests to have the experience only you can provide them, serve the good china, crystal and flatware. Keep the disposable for the kids (or the guests you can live without :))
