Throwing a house party for your cute bubbly little girl or celebrating the holiday season with all your relatives is an incredible experience. However, together with the fun of hosting a party is the struggle of all the waste accumulated after it. Here come all the kids running around, holding paper cups, or adults with multiple cans of beer. Your house usually ends up a disaster, as if a riot just happened awhile ago. This view will fizzle away your good mood. Here are some ways how you can have a blast with your friends and remain smiling even after the party.
Spread the word through technology
Letting all friends and family know about the big day usually takes a lot of time due to the creation and delivery of invitations. Take advantage of social media and other platforms. Be paperless, set up the date, create an online group for everybody, be creative, and wait for the big day to come. Through online invitations, there is no need to limit yourself on the design or the words you want to say.
Be a pro-recycler
One example of extreme clutter at any party is the decorations. Of course, who doesn’t want to have a fabulous celebration, right? Instead of rushing to a dollar store to buy various decorations, you can make them on your own. Keep all your boxes from your online shopping, paper bags, and other recyclable plastic materials. Choose a theme, like a fairy tale, a cartoon character, or even an underworld experience. From this point, unleash your artistic side and do cut-outs, paint them richly, and hang them around the house. You can even use these decors for your next house party to maximize the decorations.
Use reusable tableware
Do not break your heart by buying tons of disposable spoons, forks, and plates. Preferably, use washable or regular tableware to minimize waste. Let your guests enjoy the natural cutlery to make them feel at home. However, if you have hundreds of guests and using disposables can’t be avoided, use at least half only of the total count. Include in your plan the use of washable table napkins instead of disposable tissues. Coordinate with junk removal company Evergreen to help you out in getting rid of overflowing disposables and other trash afterward.
Giving the guests something for them to take home and remember the day is part of the tradition. Gone are the days when people gave figurines, try giving them some homemade baked cookies, granola bars, decorated bread, or mini cupcakes. It is something that they will eat, instead of an inedible item that they might just lose somewhere.
Parties are events that people look forward to. It’s the time to enjoy, be satisfied with the food, and witness a milestone in someone’s life. Do not make such a wonderful event a disastrous one. Get help from people who know about organizing or explore ways to make the most out of it. No need for an excessive budget, just be wise with spending, and you will have a thrilling party.
