Party planners are always looking for the next best thing for their  events  all the time, no matter if they are  green   events , weddings or corporate parties. I recently came across great disposable dinnerware for green parties at a recent Los Angeles convention for party planners.

These disposable dinnerware product for  green   events  are dinnerware that is stylish, eco-friendly disposable dinnerware made from fallen palm leaves. It is all natural, no chemicals or lacquers are used during production and the company promotes fair wage labor and sustainable production methods. They are a great choice for party planners to use at their green parties because after they are used, the plates can be placed in a compost heap or container and be returned back to the earth.

The disposable dinnerware work with hot or cold foods, they are microwave-, oven- and refrigerator-safe, present a chic and elegant look to your table and fit into anyone’s eco-friendly lifestyle.

More demands are made daily for party planners to create  green   events  and using disposable dinnerware is an easy decision to make when considering  green   event  items for your next event. Also, what many party planners are beginning to realize is how easy it is to incorporate the  green  movement within their corporate parties, weddings and private  events . It is important when producing events to reduce, recycle and reuse various components of an event. Dust off those candles that you used for a previous engagement. People forget that many party items have lots of life for more than just one event. You can use a colored linen overlay over the same table linen you used at your previous event. Many times you can use a basic colored linen of black, silver or gold and then change the look and tone of the event with a new table runner or contrasting colored overlay linen on top of it.

Caterers are also leaning more towards  green   events  when working with party planners on their corporate parties, weddings and other affairs. More and more caterers now look to local suppliers and farmers to provide the produce and equipment for their event that in turn helps cut down on the event’s carbon footprint. Selecting food that is seasonal is another means caterers are using to help promote  green   events  and looking to alternate methods of hors d’oeuvres without the use of paper napkins is also becoming more popular.

It’s not hard to produce green parties, it just takes a bit of thought, product exploration and flexibility. In fact, here is a fun green-themed cocktail party menu to consider for your next green party.
