Whether you’ve been planning to celebrate any toast-worthy event or you are just looking for an excuse to enjoy the warm sunshine while you can - the summer’s end is the perfect time to move the celebration outside. If you have a spacious backyard that scorching temperatures have made off-limits for most of the season, now is the perfect time to reclaim your land.
Keep the menu simple but surprising
Late-summer fruits and vegetables can be some of the most delicious of the year. For ultimate freshness and to support local farmers, consider incorporating apples, cantaloupes, grapes, huckleberries, potatoes, cucumbers, corn, tomatoes, summer squash, and other seasonally available fruits and veggies into your Goodbye Summer Party. Oh, and did we mention that limes are ripe at the end of summer? Hello, margaritas!
Set an awesome eco-friendly table
We all know the temptation to avoid doing the dishes by using disposable plastic plates and utensils. We also all know how damaging that is for the environment, and how quickly it can pile up when a large group is involved. Serving on a completely compostable and fully biodegradable eco-friendly tableware and flatware does not just eliminate the dishes, but it eliminates serious waste too. In fact, Eco Party Warehouse has one of the best selections of earth-friendly tableware available. We can set your entire table, and you can rest assured these won’t be sitting in a landfill for years.
Don’t forget a dessert
Summer’s ending calls for comfort food. It won’t be long before the leaves have fallen, and it’s far too cold to enjoy one of the summer’s best offerings: ice cream. For your party, consider setting up an ice cream bar for you and your guests.
Love your leftovers
Remember to minimize waste by keeping the leftovers. It may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s so easy to just chuck something in the garbage rather than getting creative with it later, or worse, putting the party leftovers in the fridge and leaving them until they go bad a week later. Remember to reuse the party food in sandwiches, wraps, casseroles, and tasty salads.
Follow these easy Eco Party Warehouse steps, and your Awesome Eco-friendly Goodbye Summer party will be the cherry on top of a fabulous summer.
