Setting the table the right way
Setting your tables is one of the most important parts of the party. You can make your party more eco-friendly if you green up your table. If you are looking for a way that is not only convenient but also eco-friendly, then you should opt for recyclable and compostable disposable utensils, cups, bowls and plates. The best part is that they are also available in a natural dyed green color. In order to make your party greener, you should buy the sets of green glassware and dishes and reuse them every year for the party. Also, use energy saving dishwashers in order to reduce the consumption of the energy.
Add green in your décor
The décor of the party plays a vital role in its success, no one likes a party that is not well decorated. Streamers, centerpieces, balloons are very important for the décor of your party, but the sad thing is that they are made of plastic, but now you can always go green and find ways that are eco-friendly. The first thing you need to do is replace the cut flower centerpieces with green balloons that are floating high above. Then you need to replace the baby trees with potted green plants. You can always give them to your guest as a prize for some sort of contest.
Use Recyclable décor material
The next most important step is that you need to use that decoration material that is recyclable. Avoid using plastic that cannot be recycled. For your pots of gold, you can always take green glass bottles and fill them with candy gold coins. Instead of the using the typical paper tablecloths or napkins, you can always use linens as cloth table. Lastly, instead of using the regular light bulbs opt for the energy efficient green ones. They will add a soft green glow to your party, thus enhancing the overall appearance of your party.
