Party simply and eco-wisely with designer and author Danny Seo

July 31st, 2009

A chat with Danny Seo, author of Simply Green Parties: Simple and Resourceful Ideas for Throwing the Perfect Celebration, Event or Get-Together, creator of the Simply Green line of eco-friendly houseware items sold in JCPenney stores, newspaper columnist and green contributor to Better Homes and Gardens magazine:

1. Which of your 50 ideas in the book is your favorite to offer people who are interested in throwing a green party?

That’s such a hard question to answer, but I think I use the summer entertaining tips the most because, frankly, that’s when I entertain. I like the ideas that reuse or repurpose something we all already have and easily incorporate into a party. For example, filling a birdbath (scrub it clean first!) or a wheelbarrow as a wine/beer/soda chilling station is one easy idea. Just fill with ice, insert the beverages and let them chill. The melted ice can be a cool drink for birds or just used to water plants when the party is over.
