I am starting to planing ds's 1st birthday party. I am trying to do it as "green" as possible and was thinking of asking people to bring a plate and cup of their own so that we dont need to buy paper/ plastic.
My other thought was to buy a bunch of plastic plates and cups to use year after year.
I dont know how people will react and how washing them would work? I party will be at our house in the yard so they could maybe just rinse them off? I don't know?
Most people coming are pretty mainstream and have probably not thought about the waste that can be created, or care to be honest.
I am planning on sewing a birthday banner and some party hats, making somewhat healthy local foods, maybe no pop (people will expect it)
I am also asking people to bring donations of diapers/ baby food for the food bank instead of gifts. He will get gifts from aunts, uncles and grandparents so that is enough
If anyone else has any ideas I'd love to hear them!!!!!
