How can I throw a Green Party?

Question:

Dear Flo,

I'm throwing a big party, and I'd like to make it green.  What advice can you give me on how to make my party earth-friendly?

Sincerely,
Partying in Palo Alto

Answer:

The URLs below have a discussion about party supplies.

  • Available at Whole Foods - please click on:
    http://blog.washingtonpost.com/savoringsummer/2006/06/party_plates_with_a_conscience_1.html
  • You might also try:    www.google.com  --  In search box put: party planning biodegradable  
  • ----  Some sites come up with interesting ideas for biodegradable confetti, balloons, etc.
  • Whole Foods might also have some good ideas for you, as well as the supplies. 
  • You might phone Acterra at  650-962-9876, Ext. 306,  to ask if their library has assembled any pamphlets or information about "green" [biodegradable] party supplies or planning.  Their website is:  www.acterra.org. Finger foods can help cut down on the number of plates needed [napkins would still be needed], and it helps if folks can bring their own cups.  

I hope your party is fun! —Flo
