Since this was an eco-friendly artist party, I focused on eco stuff. And artsy stuff.
Here are the invitations again, made from 100% tree free paper and junk mail. Notice the request for absolutely no gifts. This is also a very eco-friendly idea since plastic toys often end up in the land fills.
The main table, with my rainbow of juices. I used resuable dishes to eliminate waste.
A platter of organic fruits.
Cans recycled as marker holders, used at the coloring table.
Jars recycled to hold crayons, also used at the coloring table. I spray painted the lids.
I made fabric banners out of stained clothing and old pillowcases, items that otherwise would have been thrown out.
Aprons made from mens’ dress shirts. Repurposing clothing is a great way to extend it’s life.
One of the party guests painting.
The playdough table.
Stringing organic, naturally colored “froot loops” into necklaces.
The eco-friendly favors made with recycled crayons and upcycled notebooks.
A close up of the letters.
The birthday girl’s cupcake. All of the cupcakes were vegan. Even the candles were all natural, no petroleum-based wax at this party.
Enjoying the food. You can see the necklaces that they made, and the food on the mismatched plates.
These artistic party pictures were taken by the lovely & talented Melissa Papaj Photography.
