6 FUN & EASY STEPS TO THROW A GREEN SUMMER PARTY

 

Eco Lunchbox

 

By:  Sandra Ann  Harris  Founder, ECOlunchbox  July 2014

 

As summertime begins and families head to the beach, the park, the mountains and other favorite spots in the great outdoors, it’s a good time to remember there are easy ways to celebrate our love of Mother Nature by throwing a green party.

 

Step 1: Location, Location, Location

Pick a picnic spot you can walk, bike or boat to or arrive by public transit. If that’s not possible, carpool with friends.

 

Step 2: Choose an Eco-friendly Invitations

Whether throwing a baby shower, a beach partybirthday picnic or backyard BBQ, you’ve got to let your guests know about the green fun you’re planning in eco-friendly style! If it’s a neighborhood party, print invites on recycled paper and personally hand them to guests. Or use electronic invitations, which are convenient and don’t waste paper.

 

Step 3: Green Menu Planning

Great produce makes the chef’s job super easy. Think simple. Finger foods like cut fruit, nuts, local honey and peanut butter sandwiches are simple and nourishing for all ages. Also, some cheeses, like brie and camembert, are lovely softened in the sun over fresh-baked bread.

Farmer’s markets have the freshest and tastiest fruits and vegetables available from the area. Organic products are hormone and pesticide-free, making them safe to eat.

Make your own beverage and serve it in a plastic-free pitcher. That way you don’t have to deal with all the cans and bottles.

 

Step 4: Waste-Free Dinnerware

Say goodbye to throw-aways and plastics. Ask picnickers to BYO dishes, water bottles, utensils, etc. This can be done tastefully if you explain you’re hosting a zero-waste party and need some help to accomplish this.

If that’s not your style, pack a sturdy cardboard box with reusable items to share with your invitees, such as non breakable stainless steel picnic plates, reusable bamboo utensils, reusable straws, washable cotton napkins and sturdy mason jars for use as cups.

Sure you may have to do some washing, but much of this stuff will naturally decompose. Plus, you’re saving money by going waste free.

 

Step 5: Showcase Mother Nature

Nature’s beauty is inspiring when it comes to setting the table in eco-style. Leaves, flowers, pinecones, twigs, seashells and other natural treasures can be showcased on your eco-friendly BBQ or green a beach party blanket.

 

Step 6: Clean up!

Clearly mark bins for recycling, compost and waste for your guests. Since most public parks don’t separate waste and your efforts will end up in the trash, toss your separated bags into the trunk to put out with your trash pickup at home.

What did you get in your Birchbox?  I noticed some people got tea and chocolate like the pic above.

Others didn’t.  I find it interesting when Birchbox or other subscription boxes give different products to subscribers.  I got a Goop Sunscreen, which is odd, because I got the same thing last year.  

I also got a perfume in the box like Jamie did in her video.  What did you get?

Short or Long Prom Dress What Would You Choose?

Purple Prom Dress

It’s been a really cold winter this year and in New York we have had almost 60 inches of snow.  The good news is Spring is coming and that means Prom season in April and May.  So I was just thinking maybe it’s time to show off some skin and wear a short prom dress.  Here are some pictures I found.  Let me know if you think these are cute.

Aqua Prom Dress

Short Aqua Dress with a flowing skirt 

 

 

I love the turquoise color of this dress and the cinched, beaded waist.  It doesn’t look too sheer either.  It has nice coverage and the hem is flirty and ruffled.  Do you prefer to have a strapless look?  

Blue Flowered Prom Dress

 

This dress I think is over the top with the giant bow and the big, wide umbrella bottom.  It wouldn’t be very flattering.  

Kate Middleton Dress at Jen Jen House

 

 

I found this classic, royal blue Kate Middleton style dress at JenJenHouse.  It’s not overstated. You could actually wear this frock for other special events too.

 

A lot of girls do want to wear a longer dress since the prom is a more formal occasion.  If you are going in a limousine, it can be fun to get really glamorous as if you were going to the Oscars.  They are coming up this week and I was thinking it would be a good idea to see what the stars are wearing and maybe get a few ideas of what is really hot and trendy.  I’d especially take a look at  what some of the younger actresses are wearing.  

I also found this red dress at JenJenHouse. It really makes a statement.  A hot red dress makes you feel like you’re on the red carpet.  

Red Prom Dress

 

 

I couldn’t believe this was under $150.00 on sale.  Some boutique dresses can be upwards of $500.00.  March is a good time to shop for prom dresses.  You don’t want to wait until the last minute and be left with the dresses nobody else wanted.
