favors for the eco-friendly party host

happy earth day! hopefully you're doing your part to plant more trees, turn off lights, and recycle your newspapers, but why not share the wealth with your friends, colleagues, and family members. next time you host an event, consider these as your event favors:this is a colorado spruce tree, but you can find similar items in a variety of trees. they make great favors for weddings, showers, and corporate events, and are especially popular now that every wants to be "green." ask your guests to plant them in their back yards or on their patios.

if you think that your city-dwelling guests might not appreciate your "green" savvy rubbing off on them, get a plantable rosemary cutting instead of a tree. your guests will be able to plant them outside, or even in their kitchens, and will enjoy lots of delicious meals thanks to you!

a shower like no other

a couple of weeks ago, bride-to-be rebekah celebrated her upcoming nuptuals with a lingerie shower! there was a lot of giggling as the gift-opening portion of the evening began. this was no raunchy affair; although there were a couple of "fun" items, rebekah's friends showered her with some gorgeous and classy lingerie items, making everyone feel like their own lingerie drawers needed some updating.
the cosmos and hors d'oeuvres were a big hit. luckily everyone still had some room for dinner afterwards! best of all, everyone departed with a chocolate-y brownie favor to savor the evening's memories!
