As you might have guessed, I love to throw a party. It doesn’t matter if it’s a small gathering of friends in the back garden, a big birthday party where the boys can invite their whole class or some kind of national day where I can decorate the living room. But what I’ve noticed over the years that all of these parties can come with a crazy amount of waste, so I’ve decided that if I feel this way there must be other mums and party throwers that feel the same way too. To do my bit to help elimate this waste I’ve have put together parties in a box which can be hired by you from me.
Basic Party Kit – brightly coloured or pastel plates, cups and jugs which are all fully recyclable when they’re all partied out. Available for 10, 20 or 30 children.
Serve Ware Kit – brightly coloured small platters, small square dishes, round pots, and tongs (5 of each item).
Add Ons – small or large tiered stands, oblong white platters, chip and dip trays, serving trays
Themed Decor Kits – each kit contains beautiful fabric bunting, fabric happy birthday, either a wipeable tablecloth or washable table covering and a number centerpiece. Each decor kit will also include one or two additional items that go with the theme. Themes currently available are flamingo, rainbow, dinosaurs, army, monster trucks and pirates. The number centrepieces are my handywork but there are some wonderful small businesses on Etsy which have to take credit for the banners and bunting (all details can be found in the box). There are also some decor add ons such as an army ammo box!
How does it work?
For those of you local to Bishop’s Stortford for the boxes will be available for collection. Once the party is over, put everything back in the box and simply return.
Should you be further afield the decor boxes can also be hired, but will be sent in a padded envelope with a return envelope include. I can also arrange palm leave or bamboo plates and cups which can also be delivered. These fabulous plates can either be put in your food/garden waste recycling bin or on your compost heap.
How is it eco friendly?
All of the bright plates, cups, jugs and serve ware are polycarbonate plastic. When they are all partied out I will return them to the manufacturer to be recycled. The pastel set is from a different supplier but the Party Kit Network is able to send to another company who can recycle them.
As mentioned above the palm leaf and sugar came plates are fully compostable so you can add them to your compost heap at home or add them to you food waste/garden waste recycling.
The fabric banners and tablecloths/tablecoverings will be washed after each party and will be repurposed or recycled once their party days are over.
The kits start from £8 with a £20 refundable deposit for all hires, the kit price list can be downloaded below . I am also putting together a range of add on individual items and will add the price list for those shortly.
Of course, I’m looking to expand my range of themes so if there is anything that you have in mind, drop me a message and I’ll get started.
