At the beginning of July we styled this amazing Picnic table for little Phoebes third birthday party, this was our first Picnic Party without a bell tent and I loved getting all creative with the space we had to work with. When Amy from The Panda Party Company first got in touch I was so excited, I’ve seen her beautiful party bags before and I knew that our services were a match made in heaven.
We got talking about themes and things that Phoebe loves and settles on a colourful English Woodland theme. This was the first Picnic setting with our bamboo plates and cups and we absolutely loved the outcome! The colours tied in perfectly with the theme, and we weren’t left walking away with a bin bag full of plastic or paper plates.
I wanted to make sure this booking was eco-friendly as possible, after all it was woodland theme so we want to protect our woodland! So I took a re-use approach, which being a hire company I’m all about re-using and re-purposing items for different bookings. I didn’t have many items to suit the woodland theme so I headed to my local charity shops to have a little rummage and found some lovely china animal figures which I painted to suit the colour scheme. I knew I wanted to include lots of flowers so raided our garden and filled all different jars and bottles which were heading for the recycling.
Amy is also working hard to reduce plastic within her party bags, she styles these card boxes with creative contents such as seed packs, bamboo cups, sweets with paper packaging and quirky hair ties.
To round up here’s our top three eco-friendly party tips:
- Bamboo crockery
- Reduce, reuse and re-purpose styling elements
- Card party boxes
Thanks for taking the time to look through our woodland picnic party, we hope you loved this set up as much as we do. You can get super creative with this woodland theme, depending on the space you have to work with and the budget.
