A Good Party

Everyone loves to celebrate holidays, birthdays, babies, weddings and other affairs, so why not make your next party an eco-friendly one?

Use biodegradable streamers in your favorite colors that you can buy at party supply stores. This crepe paper disintegrates into the ground, leaving behind no waste. Twist the colors together or string them separately, to create a pleasing party atmosphere. Liven up walls, ceilings, trees, deck rails or chair-backs for a wonderful color scheme and party decoration.

Use cut flowers. Mother nature is often our best decorator. Liberally place flower pots around your party space and use them as centerpieces too. Once the party is over you can re-purpose them as gifts or continue to display them outdoors or transplant them in your garden.

Use reusable plates and cutlery vs plastic or paper throwaways that will only end up in our landfills after one use. I know...you will have to wash them but did you know that dishwashers are more efficient than hand washing. You'll also be saving on the cost of your party since you already own your reusables and can used them over and over. Besides...there's nothing worse than a soggy paper plate.

So remember just because you're going green, doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style. Ditch the burlap and go with crisp, white organic cotton tablecloths teamed with matching napkins tied with twine. Think eco-chic and have fun with it. - CT
