Eco-chic party favors by Pear and Peony

Handmade party favors trigger a second to none charmed factor. When we are stress on time, the two women of Pear and Peony come to the rescue.

For a dinner party, I am fond of their Wildflower Seeds party favors or their yellow and black Recipe Cards. Their labels are printed with vegetable inks. The packages are made of recycled paper.

What is fun about the wildflower seeds is that they are available in four varieties, each native to a different area of the USA. You can personalize your favor to your guest’s home state or to location of the event. On the back, there is some space for hand write a thank you note.

Recipe cards are a nice gesture. You can share your favorite recipes, the recipes of the menu of the party or leave them blank for your guests to write their own.

Making simple green choices

Instead of buying brand new shipping boxes, their orders are shipped in reused boxes. It is a wise choice economically and ecologically. I reuse shipping boxes since 2002 for my business needs. I encourage you to do that if you have gifts to ship this Christmas.

It is fashionable these days to try to minimize our impact on the environment. You can read on their Web site that Pear and Peony offsets in parts the shipping of their materials and their products by purchasing renewable energy certificates.

As an individual, you can buy high-quality carbon offsets through a non-profit organization like Planetair in Canada.

  1. I love these party favours!
    I’m in a friends wedding party for next summer and I was thinking of recommending favours like these, very eco friendly and so practical :)

    LOVE IT.
    And how pretty are those envelopes.
