A Little Good & Green Party Idea

Unleash Your Creativity

As a “green” greyhound I think differently than most, and one step farther with the view from my world.  Every day is an experience for me so I always have the what if-the why not- the maybe.   I think nothing is impossible, with no limits to leash your creativity and…your dreams.  Great ideas & experiences I think come along that way.  I suggest for everyone to always say “what if” {not to be confused with what sniff :)} and to think always, outside the box-no matter what .   During our party event and wedding consultations, I listen intently at the many details so to add my input, and especially pay close intent to the menu!

The Wedding Yummies

 I have an idea, and it is just a perfect one I think. {for all worlds concerned}  I began to wonder at what happens to all these luscious leftovers, as unlike canine menus, nothing is ever, ever left.  (we graciously even clean our own plates!)  But humans always leave so much untouched.  Is it just left and tossed?  It can’t be just forgotten?  Who would forget yummy food?  So, how unique would it be to have small boxes for the guests to each take home the wedding tidbits?   Whether their own plate, the unserved bites from the kitchen, or the cake.  This could be the best reminder of the wedding; favors are cool but food rocks.

Good and Green

So I searched my idea and found decorative, earth friendly, boxes that easily could be labeled with the event name or couples names if a wedding; with a note like “bring the celebration home “(and to maybe share with the ‘entire’ family-hint hint).   Or how about this-another idea could be to use the little boxes for the unserved food & cake; sending it to a human, homeless shelter.  Even if there was a little extra serving charge; how really cool would that be!    How good would they feel to know they gave to those who had less, and there was nothing wasted; I mean it was paid for anyway right?

 Of course, I am working out the details of another idea-the meat bones from all the steak dinners.  If I could just figure how to gather all those afterward for the canine shelters, now that would be grand!

Look for more of my ideas here and visit me on our Facebook Page.  Remember, green is good, and good is green.   And both are easy.

Always dreaming, Willow
