LENZO were lucky enough to be invited to style the recent kids party campaign at Melbourne Zoo, and we couldn't have been more #EXCITED!
With the natural setting of the Zoo, we wanted to create an environmentally friendly event, that took into consideration the importance of our surroundings. Both the Melbourne Zoo and LENZO think that this is such an important element to think about when hosting a party in this day and age!
If you too want to create a party that is beneficial to both you and the environment, alongside the Melbourne Zoo today we will share our top five party tips in creating a #AMAZING eco-party!
TIP ONE: Use eco-friendly partyware.
There are heaps of brands on the market now that use recycled materials in their partyware ranges, including Eco Party Box.
TIP TWO: Create your own activities and decorations using recycled products
For our Zoo party, we wanted to continue the animal motif in our party, so we created frogs using old egg cartons, as well as an elephant mural, using an old piece of wood and a silver foil flexible duct.
TIP THREE: Create your own fabric bunting out of recycled materials.
LENZO loves a garland or two to string across a party, so why not make your own with old clothing or material from around the house!
TIP FOUR: Use a recycled pallet as a table.
Create your own party table that you can use for years to come from a wooden pallet! If you only have a small one, set the table on the floor and use cushions instead of chairs, and if you can’t get your hands on one, just look at event hire companies such as My Wedding Decor.
TIP FIVE: Bubbles not balloons!!
We love this tip! Instead of using balloons, which can take up to 4 years to decompose, have the kids play with bubbles instead!
