{Earth Day} 5 Tips for Greening Your Parties

I'm not a green expert but I do try to live responsibly, to reduce, reuse and recycle when possible.  In celebration of Earth Day, I have 5 simple ideas for greening your parties so that whatever your shade of green, you can try to live responsibly too!

1. Serve filtered or tap water in a recycled wine bottle or vintage water pitcher.

2. Limit meat and prepare more seasonal, local and organic plant-based recipes.

3. Use your own plates, flatware and stemware or alternately, borrow from a friend/neighbor, recycle thrift store items or rent from your local rental company.

4.  Decorate the dinner table or food buffet with a bowl of fresh fruit, an arrangement of fresh herbs or bell pepper votives.

5.  Clean Green!  After the party, clean up with non-toxic, biodegradable, environmentally safer household cleaning products.
