With the advent of global warming, debutantes need to be aware that a small endeavor can go a long, long way. In choosing Green Earth as a party theme, the debutante is not only getting presents for herself but she’s also giving back to our Mother Nature.
By using organic materials or “green fabric” such as hemp, organic cotton or textiles dyed with low impact dyes for her gown, the debutante is doing the environment a big favor. But aside from this, there are even more ways to have a “Green Earth” or a nature-loving feel for a debut party.
Ways to have a Green Earth Debut Party
You can have a Green Earth theme starting with your party’s venue. Look for a garden venue for your debut so that no air-conditioning is used. Not only will a garden party be favorable to our environment, it will also be economical for you and a thrilling experience for everyone.
Use recyclable materials for party favors and invites. Perhaps you can give away a notepad doubling as an invite, with your party details on the front cover. The guest can keep the cover as a remembrance, while the rest they can still re-use. Through this, you are expressing not only your request for their attendance, but also your advocacy that’s evident in your invite.
You can also ask the caterer to use only pesticide-free produce as ingredients for their menu. Ask the guests that instead of giving you a gift, they should just participate in a tree planting activity that you will organize. They can pledge a tree, or maybe offer their support and volunteer for these activities. On the other hand, you can make your debut a tree-planting activity itself. Instead of getting 18 roses from the 18 special gentlemen in your life, have them plant one tree each.
There are really many ways to create an earth-friendly debut party. Just be aware first of what’s happening with the environment right now so that you can think of what ways to help. Not only will you be throwing a one-of-a-kind party experience for your friends and family, you will also be able to start off this new phase of your life at the right foot.
