My goal in putting this dessert table together was not to buy anything for this party, but to reuse and recycle items I already had!
I also used these free Earth Day party printables from Michelle at Printabelle, and that definitely helped my budget. I am in love with the colors Michelle chose.
The greens, blues and earth tones worked perfectly with what I already had in my party stash.
For my banner, I used the banner pendants from the collection along with a tassel garland that I had from The Flair Exchange. I just had to restring it and use only the white and earth color tassels. It worked out perfect with the party.
For the menu: I filled the plastic tubes with earthy crunchy granola for the children. They can just pop the top and pour right into their mouths!
The green and blue striped goodie bags were embellished with some “candy bar” wraps from the collection to give them an extra pop. (Inside were tattoos and stickers.)
I also put out some dried Granny Smith apple pieces and a cupcake for each to enjoy. Sticking to a "mostly" healthy menu is my goal.
I am so looking forward to celebrating Earth Day, right after Easter, this year.
The children will be going on a nature hike, digging for worms, planting some bulbs, and enjoying what nature has to offer. Until next time – be kind to our Earth and party on friends!
Thank you, Melissa, I love the spirit of this party, and I love that you did with all recycled materials! To learn more about Melissa, visit her at My Party Passion.
To start, I wanted to have something round on the table to signify the Earth and the recycling cycle so I used my grape vine wreath for that. I added a little ceramic bird to represent the animals. Using a plastic green table cloth left over from our St. Patrick’s Day party was a no-brainer.DIY on Catch My Party) and my Silhouette machine, we were able to put together this fun Earthy banner. Woodland Party last year and I thought how perfect to recreate them for this party. I used a brown lunch bag, a stamp and some jute twine. It was so easy and pairing it up with a twig pencil was perfect!

Happy Spring! The flowers are blooming, the trees are alive, and the snow is still in melting mode (hehe). Regardless of the weather, April is HERE and there is no going back! I am excited that Earth Day is fast approaching. We always have a great time learning about our planet and what we can do to help preserve it.
TODAY, I am bringing you a tutorial on how I made our Earth Day banner for this year’s celebration - using recycled maps.
Our public library holds a “used book sale” twice a year. Books, to our home, are like GOLD! A few sales ago, I found this HUGE hardcover Atlas with pretty maps in it for $ 1.00! SCORE! I knew that I would use them for our schooling in years to come.
When I was thinking on what colors and “theme” to go with for Earth Day this year, I decided blues, greens and whites (typical Earth colors) and what better way to incorporate those colors then to use MAPS!
Using my Circle Cutter (Martha Stewart brand), I picked a few maps that would show off vibrant colors in hues of blues and greens (even snuck in some browns).
Cutting – 6.5 inch circles from this paper.
For the next layer, I enlisted the help of my Silhouette SD Machine (one of my party planning staples)! I cut the word EARTH and some leaves for embellishment.
Be watching for our Earth Day Mini Party on a budget coming tomorrow! Until next time - Party On and Protect the Earth!
