Parties are all fun and games until it comes time for clean up. Worse still is the pang of guilt when you see how much garbage your small yet sociable gathering generates. After all, it’s easy to get carried away in decor and menu planning without a thought toward hosting an eco-responsible party.
Enter Acme Party Box Company, an online shop specializing in eco-responsible tableware, favours and party decorations – all created to be reused and enjoyed over and over again. This doesn’t mean rough recycled paper napkins and colourless decor though. Acme design their wares with modern colourways and charming themes with both adults and kids in mind.
If you need to plan a party – and plan it fast – opt for a “Party Box”. Each box includes custom letterpress invitations; table linens (fabric napkins, bunting, favour bags and a table runner!); favours; bamboo tableware and utensils; and centrepiece standbys like candlesticks and vases.
My favourite is the ultra-feminine Cottage Floral theme. It would be perfect for an outdoor bridal/baby shower, or for a sophisticated little girl’s birthday party. Just need a few extra essentials? You can also purchase items individually to freshen your existing supplies. I’ll definitely be adding a few of these super cute glass drinking jars for warm weather gatherings.
Want a little party planning guidance? Acme also has a free, downloadable instruction sheet and planning checklist to help your soirée on its way.
Are you planning any parties this spring? Will you follow a theme or stick to the basics?
