Planning guides: party.

Food and Drink

  1. Go Local, Organic, and Vegetarian.

    VegWeb has tons of great recipes, and Co-op America lets you search for co-ops and organic and vegetarian food retailers in your area.

    Cut out disposables: use what you have.

    Cloth napkins: classy and waste free!

    Use your own dishes to serve food, borrow from a friend, or rent from a supplier. Finger Foods eliminate the need for cutlery and multiple plates!

    Try to only make enough food for the party

    If you have too many leftovers, offer to send some home with guests so nothing is wasted.
