Eco-Entertaining at Home
It might be that a few of you have decided to dedicate one evening a week to a takeaway, and you’ll each take it in turns to host the group. Alternatively, you might take pleasure in having friends and family round to enjoy your fancy bamboo tableware, your home and your hosting skills.

If you are a seasoned and regular entertainer though, be sure to make an effort and impress your guests with some eco-entertaining.
What is eco-entertaining? Well for starters, it is setting a good example and making a difference, one gathering at a time. It is understandable that you don’t want to get stuck washing the dishes when there’s fun to have with friends. However, rather than spending money on excess food and wasteful plastic containers or packaging, you can be sensible and use eco-friendly options instead.
To give you some idea of what we mean, Little Cherry has put together three types of home entertaining you might consider, and how you can make them more eco-friendly.
For a sophisticated sit down meal…
Most sophisticated dinner parties will involve the real deal; china plates, crystal clear glasses and the best cutlery. Just because you have no need for disposable tableware though, doesn’t mean you can’t make the table more eco-friendly. If you plan on dining by candlelight, opt for organic wax options. Unless you have washable, material serviettes, stock up on recycled paper versions. And if you are planning on handing out party favours, make sure you use recycled and eco-friendly paper bags or boxes.
For a chilled out chow down…
If a few pizzas and some relaxed drinks on the sofa is more your style, you can enjoy the best of both worlds with bamboo disposable plates that will save the planet and save you washing up, all at the same time. These plates are great because they are sturdy enough to deal with hefty slices of greasy pizza, but they still look great and disappear into the compost heap at the end of the night. For an all-round eco-friendly experience, stock up on our biodegradable glasses and paper serviettes too.
For a sensational soiree…
Parties; they are such fun to throw, attend and plan! What’s more is that the extensive range of planet-friendly party ware available at Little Cherry means you can have quite the soiree, but keep a clean (green) conscience. We’ve got a little bit of everything, from biodegradable balloons and cotton bunting, to palm leaf plates and recyclable decorations, to bring some buzz to your bash.
Now, these three examples are just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many ways you can make home life and home entertaining of all sorts planet-friendly. From small changes, like swapping mass produced dinner candles for organic wax ones, to big switches like trading in all of your cheap and cheerful plastic party ware for more sustainable palm leaf and bamboo options, there is a lot you can do.
