If you have read a newspaper, turned on the television, or browsed the internet, you know it is cool to be green (even beyond St Patrick's Day). Resolve today to be a Green Goddess everyday! Make ecologically friendly choices as you plan your party. Make every party a green party!
- Join the sustainable food movement by creating a menu based on seasonal foods, grown or produced locally. The fewer miles the food needs to travel to get to your table, the fresher it will taste and the less carbon footprint you will leave. Likewise, use flowers and plants grown organically and locally. Local Harvest is a wonderful source for regionally grown flowers and foods
- Buy eco friendly products. Amazon offers a myriad of Eco + Green + Environmental friendly products including bamboo utensils, compostable, biodegradable and recycled paper party supplies. Or better yet, skip the disposables altogether — consider renting glassware and china or use your own. Don't worry about it all matching — one of today's hottest trends is to mix and match!
- Proof positive you can still have your glitter and keep green!
Add a sprinkle of sparkle to your cupcakes with these reusable glitter cupcake wrappers! These glamorous glitter cupcake wrappers and liners come in gold, white, black, cherry blossom, red, lime green, sky blue, royal blue, aqua blue, lavender, baby pink, and white to match your special day.

Earth Friendly Party Favors & Gifts
- Consider giving earth friendly party favors such as seeds, starter herbs, or reusable bags
- Place your emergency kit items in a bag or tray made from recyclable materials such as candy wrappers, juice boxes, plastic bottles or choose natural and renewable fibers.
Earth Friendly Invitations
- Use a digital invitation — it is easy, fast, and paper free and best of all, both Evite (Evites also gives you the option to text your invitations!) and Minted's digital invites are really lovely!. However, sometimes, a beautiful paper invitation still works best. Consider using only invitations printed on tree- free or recycled paper with non toxic ink.
Earth Friendly Food & Drinks
- Use water bottles manufactured from renewable resources and consider using only organic wine and vodka. Again, the less miles a product needs to travel, the lower the carbon footprint.
Environmentally Friendly + Chic
- Carry the health and wellness concept beyond the party and into your home … be a trend setter. Demonstrate that environmentally friendly can be chic too.
