Going Green: How to Throw a St. Patrick’s Day “Green” Party
St. Patrick’s Day is obviously for dressing green. But it is also easy to make it about going green. Hosting a St. Patrick’s party and molding it to your green lifestyle is easy. It also helps minimize your impact on the environment. Brandy’s Big Bargains have thrown together some great tips for a “green” St. Patrick’s Day party.
Okay, so you have the normal “Green” foods, like Green Sugar Cookies, Green Jello, Salad Greens, Cucumber Hummus Rounds, Green Frosted cupcakes, and the like…. Now take it one step further….
Offer your guests “Green” goody bags… there are litterally hundreds if not thousands of low cost “green” items that will “wow” your guests. Items like Reusable shopping bags, reusable lunch bags, reusable water bottles, with Spring on it’s way, it’s the perfect time for people to start planting. Set them up with literature on “green” building materials… people you know may be planning to get some home projects done, and may not know about the different “Green” building materials that are available to them.
Too many gifts to provide everyone with their own “Green” goody bag? Put together one or two of these goody bags, and hold a raffle. Ask your guests to bring a canned good to the party to be entered to win one of the goody bags. Not only will your guests have the chance to win a great gift bag, but they will also be helping a local food bank.
Remember that a truly “Green” party, uses reusable cloth napkins, real plates, and cups.
