Eco Friendly Seating Charts

From baby crib to seating chart

Finding a creative way to display your seating chart can be challenging, especially if you are trying to Think Green.  This photo shows a great way of displaying your seating assignments.  The individual table assignments are printed on paper, and attached to a reclaimed baby crib springs with wooden clothes pins.
It was fun to see the expressions on the faces of the guests as they recognized the metal frame.
Your wedding planner can help you find items to use to display your seating chart - we are always happy to help.

Repurposed and Recycled Decorations

This arrangement looked lovely in the chapel of the Union Hill Inn, Sonora, CA.  The vases were made from recycled jars, wrapped in cord, and each vase
had a vintage brooch attached to the front.  These jars were moved from the ceremony area to the reception, providing one arrangement to serve two purposes.  The bride did a wonderful job of working in "Green ideas" into her wedding planning.
Each small action in making your wedding Greener is important.

Green Wedding on a Mountain Top

You can make small changes to your wedding plans and make your event spectacular while still being kinder to the environment.
The pictured wedding was held at High Camp in Squaw Valley, California. The bride chose to bring her own reusable napkins, in the color of her choice, and she also provided the centerpieces.  She chose live plants in reusable metal containers.  She returned home after the wedding and planted the plants in her garden, and after 9 years she is still using the metal containers for parties and special events. These containers have been used dozens of times since her special wedding day.
Think outside the box when you choose your wedding decorations.  Using live plants is a Green Idea, and is always better than using cut flowers that may have traveled hundreds of miles to be used for your one event.  With a little planning you can plant the types of flowers you desire, and use the flowers from your garden for your arrangements rather than using imported flowers should you choose cut flowers over live plants.

Fun and Eco Friendly Decorations for your Party

These baby clothes are much cuter than most hanging decorations available from
your local party supply stores.
The baby gifts are displayed for the enjoyment of the guests,
plus they add decorations to the room.
This was a wonderful "Green" idea, and we can offer
many more "Eco Friendly" party planning ideas.
Give us a call, we are always happy to assist.

Wonderful use of second hand books

The bride and groom from this wedding  searched through used book stores, finding a variety of books, many of which had special meaning to the couple, and the books, along with hand made book marks, were given to the wedding guests as a wedding favor
The display was creative, and the gifts were appreciated by the guests. Need any suggestions for Greener favors or decorations for your wedding or party?  Let us help. We can assist you in making  your special day memorable and personal and gentle to the environment.

Unique Green Party Locations

Have you ever thought of holding your next gathering at a special outdoor location? Why not hold your next party at some place like a historic site (like the pictured location of Knight's Ferry Bridge). Small gatherings work in unexpected locations such as the picnic area, and larger gatherings can be held in these areas with special permission.

Museums, historic parks and local recreation areas make great party venues, and as long as you are gentle to the grounds, it is a great Green idea.
Use blankets and have every one eat Picnic Style, or provide fabric tablecloths and use the property's existing picnic tables.
Bring your dishes from home, or purchase biodegradable picnic supplies and make the food service easy on the environment.  Be sure to clean up thoroughly before leaving the property to make sure it's perfect for your next visit.
