Gather Friends and Family

November 12, 2016

Get ready now, and save yourself the hassle later at the last-minute! You’ll be hosting and guesting at parties during the upcoming weeks and we’ve got a few suggestions to make your life a little easier, while still respecting your commitment to sustainability. Keep all of the fun in the season, but none of the waste. Check out some of our favorite picks below, but be sure to see the full Holiday Entertaining Collection for more ideas to make your occasion leave a good impression.

Here are our top three picks to have on hand to bright up the occasion:

  • Bambu Veneerware
    From plates to utensils, these beautiful and compostable bamboo plates keep the party fuss to a minimum. And don’t forget the Bamboo Salad Serving Hands, cut from a single piece of bamboo.
  • Coco-Shine 3-Wick Candles
    Whether a shimmering centerpiece for your table or a hostess gift, these candles poured into natural coconut shells will be the talk of the party.
  • Delicious Spreads
    Add a sumptuous spread from The Jam Stand to your cheese plate. Our favorite: Fig Tamarind pairs beautifully with any soft, creamy cheese. Always have a jar on hand in the pantry.
