MORE SONIC BIRTHDAY!!!

I don't know if I'm a rotten mother or whether I'm just done but I think (nope actually, Im sure) that this last birthday party for Theo will be the last. Well, you know, the last on a large scale.
Kids are hardcore....and hard work. And *slight rant* when did it become acceptable to just drop off your kids and their younger siblings AND not RSVP??? Okay, rant over.
Needless to say, we've seen the end of the birthday parties. For #8, we'll go to the movies or organize a few friends to go do something special.....Not 15-25 kids in a rented hall.
We put a lot of effort in to things for Theo. The invites were a great start and then the party bags (which I can send the templates for, if anyone wants). As well as the cupcakes and cake. The one thing we didn't end up doing is the matching tableware. We thought about it and, to be honest, its so wasteful. Im not knocking it, if thats what you really want to do BUT, there is so much wastage at a party to begin with, I just couldn't see the sense in adding to it.






Now, Im sure you're asking - how did she manage to serve food at the party??? Well, Im one lucky girl!! I have a great friend that works for an amazing company, that I am really proud to tell you about!
Green Man Packaging is one amazing company. Everything is not only environmentally friendly, its 100% compostable! Check it out:

  • 100% compostable and biodegradable
  • Made from natural renewable fibres
  • Suitable for hot, wet and oily foods
  • Economic and more durable than paper tableware
These are the items that she so generously provided me for Theo's party.

biodegradable partyware

biodegradable plates







I have to say, I've never seen anything so cool as the palm leaf platter! Theo thought they were amazing too! And, most importantly, I didn't feel bad throwing the half eaten food and plates away!

Go check out the website . See whats available as alternatives for your kids parties, events, etc. Do you make cupcakes? Go check out their fully compostable cupcake cases. the range of products is incredible.

I want to say thank you again to my dear friend Marta and the wonderful Adam at Greenman Packaging. You helped me create a great, eco-friendly party, that we're all proud of!

  1. Great work! And I agree with you on kid bday parties. Mine are only 2 and 4, but we decided that they would only have *big* parties for their milestone birthdays.... we'll see how long that lasts ;)

  12. Love, love, love all of these!! I just asked you to email me the invite template, but seriously would appreciate all of these!!! You are so talented! That bites about the manners of the parents. I have found over the years, although I ask for a RSVP, it's rarely done, so I end up calling each parent anyway. It ends up being a really good thing because I can communicate such things as... I need parents to come and help with their kids!! Goodness! Thanks again! gwenethaowens@hotmail.com
