That's exactly what I do; I bought two packages of "holiday" picnic ware.
I have green and red forks, knives, and spoons and they are perfect for
the purpose. Also it's a good idea to keep all your clear sprues for the
same reason; you can drill a small hole inside and put a touch of green or
red paint in the hole to simulate that type of light.
I wouldn't buy that aftermarket stuff in this case; it's not worth it.
