And to make things even easier, we'll show you how Festabox can help you bring these ideas to life. Let's get this party started!
1. Replace plastic with paper for banners and cake toppers
Who needs plastic when you can have paper? Instead of flex banners and foil balloons, use paper buntings and paper pom poms ! These options are not only eco-friendly but also give very fresh look to the party.
You can swap plastic cake toppers with edible cake toppers.You can check with your baker. Or you can go for paper based cake toppers which can be made on your own or ordered from Festabox just like this mermaid cake topper. This cake topper is made out of paper and is stuck on a bamboo skewer.
2. Use fresh flowers
Nothing brightens up a party like fresh flowers. Skip the plastic decorations and opt for beautiful, locally sourced flowers instead. Use floral backgrounds which will really enhance the beauty of the party decorations while being good for the environment!
3. Use digital invitations
Send out beautiful e-invites to your guests, saving trees and reducing your carbon footprint. Festabox provides customizable digital invitations that are not only eco-friendly but also super convenient.
4. Avoid plastic cutlery
Plastic cutlery may be convenient, but it's terrible for the environment. Opt for reusable or compostable alternatives instead.
5. Give eco-friendly return gifts
Make your guests feel extra special by giving them eco-friendly return gifts. We believe that toys made from plastic should be a complete no-no as a return gift. These are mostly of very poor quality and are thrown away by the children after just a single use at their home.
We would recommend interesting books, gardening kits, colouring books, puzzles or similar thoughtful toys!
6. Ask for sustainable gifts
When it comes to gifts, encourage your guests to think sustainably. Let them know that you appreciate eco-friendly and ethical products.
7. Keep games simple
Who needs fancy, plastic-filled games when you can have good old-fashioned fun? Keep the games simple and eco-friendly. Festabox offers a range of classic party games that will keep your guests entertained without harming the planet.
8. Make and serve homemade food
Homemade food not only tastes better but also reduces packaging waste. Skip the store-bought snacks and opt for homemade treats.
9. Donate leftover food
Food waste is a big problem, but you can make a difference. Instead of throwing away leftover food, donate it to a local charity or food bank.
10. Say no to balloons
Balloons may be fun, but they're terrible for the environment. Instead of using balloons for decorations, get creative with eco-friendly alternatives like bunting, streamers, or paper lanterns. Festabox offers a variety of eco-friendly party decorations that will make your event pop without harming the planet.
