Today a certain little boy turns 2! I started off the year with grand ideas for what his party would be and frankly I was exhausted at the idea of planning it and then having to host it. So we went low key again this year and had a nice party at home with family and good friends. There were no bouncy castles or giant Elmo's running around. Instead there was kids running around, riding plasma cars, throwing balls and having picnics on the floor.
It is possible to have a nice birthday party and still be eco-friendly. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is with the food that you serve. This year we served pulled pork sandwiches, vegetables, potato salad, coleslaw and spinach dip. The day before the party we ventured out to the St. Jacobs Farmers Market and bought all the vegetables we needed for the veggie tray, potato salad and coleslaw. I also picked up the freshest pumpernickel bread ever. The pork we got from a local butcher (that came from a local farmer). The buns were also made locally.
For drinks we did serve pop (soda) but I also made organic raspberry iced tea with fresh Niagara peaches.
