Sustainable, Effective and Efficient party
Last Monday, we had a birthday party at our home for my daughter.
Fresh & Natural Beauty
In the early morning, I picked some pink, red and yellow flowers. And also green leaves from my back yard trees.
Beauty & Recycled Glasses I put them in to some used but clean glasses with a nice arrangement.They would not be found either in flower shops or in vase shops.But, they were beautiful enough for our party.
Organic Foods I also picked many kinds of green organic vegetables and herbs from our little garden to make a beautiful but also delicious birthday party table.

Save & Reuse I washed the vegetables thoroughly, and then poured the used water into old big jars which are always standing on our kitchen sink.The jars are useful for watering our little organic farm.
Cakes & CandlesWe often imagine many candles on a expensive commercial cake would be used to welcome new ages.But, my daughter found birthday cakes are wasteful as she often could not eat them after lots of delicious food.
Find some alternativesSo, she requested her friends to not to buy cakes for her.Actually, she decided to purchase one doughnut to stand one candle in. In fact, I decided to use one piece of sushi roll instead as she had forgotten to buy the doughnut.
Unusual Cake I also used one candle which had been saved from last time.Everybody enjoyed but also was excited by the unusual birthday cake.
Buffet Style PartyOur party was buffet style which could share with many people.
Share and Reuse I packed one bunch of flowers with one piece of used but clean gift paper.And then, presented it to my friend who came with her lovely little son. Also, I packed some food in some used but clean plastic containers for her husband who was not able to come to our party.
After PartyAfter party, I wisely used all of our left over foods.To do that, I had to store them well in a refrigerator.
Amazing CardI admired the amazing big birthday card made with lots of love. My daughters friends made it very economically but also sensibly.I found it is good enough to decorate my daughters room for long time.
