Eco-Friendly Party Supplies

Yesterday we told you how to green your grilling for July 4th, and today we’re going to bring you some of the best green party supplies on the market. While it may be a little late to gather them all up for Saturday, you can certainly use them for the other fabulous parties you’ll be having this year! CornWare Tableware: Forget the Styrofoam plates – when you’re serving your best cheese dip or grilled veggie dish this year, use CornWare Tableware. These plates, bowls, utensils and cups are made from corn, a renewable resource. The best part is that they’re compostable. You can toss them right after the party or reuse them – it’s entirely up to you. You can get these great sets of tableware in several different colors, so matching them to your party décor is no problem! Hand Painted Garlands: Skip the balloons and streamers this year and go with something more elegant and greener. These hand painted garlands are absolutely gorgeous and can be used again and again for any kind of party. They’re festive, beautiful, and there are several different designs to choose from. The hand painted poppy flowers and dogwood flowers (shown), can be obtained for $32 a strand, which is about 6’ long. Green Table Cloths: This year, decorate your table with a festive cloth that is pretty and eco-friendly. There are a variety of tablecloths that you can choose from, so finding one that will fit in with your party decorations is easy. Green Party Goods has tablecloths that are recycled and available in just about every color of the rainbow – and also available in solid colors or bright decorative patterns. Eco-Friendly Bamboo Coasters: Save your tables or give your party guests fabulous favors with eco-friendly bamboo coasters. These coasters are 100% bamboo and measure 3.5” by 3.5” – they’ll look really cute spread around at your party so guests can use them easily. If you choose to give them as favors, you can leave them in the adorable gift box for presentation. With the amount of paper waste accumulated every year due to parties and party supplies, we all suffer. This year, when you gather around the table with your family and friends, use eco-friendly party supplies that will cause less damage to our planet!
