Best Kids Parties: Reduce, Reuse & Recycle

My Party

Name: Presley (2)
Location: New Jersey

We had a reduce, reuse, recycle theme for my daughter's birthday party. The invitations were printed on recycled paper that had seeds made into it and when planted would grow flowers. We had our local recycling center mascot "super can" there and really focused on an environmental friendly party.

We used all recycled partywear, had no drinks in plastic bottles, and everything had a 2nd use (like the paper table cloth on the kids' table had crayons on it so they could color it). I made flowers for decor out of old magazines and used paper bags and cut up plastic shopping bags for the birthday signs. It was fun and the kids had a blast :)

Thanks Katie!
