Let's Get This Party Started...with Eco-Friendly Flair!

With the allurement of prom season inspiring a wonderland of possibilities with mesmerizing party decor...and with the eco-friendly mindset of Earth Day on our minds this month, I think it's time to get this party started with recycled party decor! Below I have featured my favorite upcycled party supply items from some darling Etsy boutiques. The recycled hanging metallic stars above can be found in my sweet sister Andrea's shop Storybook Artifact; she is also a Team Leader of the Etsy Recyclers Guild Team!
I hope you will be captivated and enlighted...and may the enchantment and eco-conscious decor influence your decorating for your next social gathering be it a birthday party, wedding shower, bachelorette party, baby shower, or cocktail party! Reclaim your decorator talents with party decor made from RECLAIMED materials! Mother Nature will be proud and she might just drop by your party to drink a mint julep! *~*Happy Earth Day Everyone!*~*

"Comic Head Mannequin Hat Form Display Ira Mency Mr. Fun Times" (which I think would make an awesome centerpiece!) created by our Etsy Recyclers Guild Team Leader Cindy of Retro Chalet!

My New Favorite Color...Seafoam Green!

My new favorite color: seafoam green! It reminds me of Tulsa, Oklahoma's historic Dresser particular Mrs. Dresser's seafoam green boudoir! Below are some photos taken in my sister Andrea's (Etsy Shop owner of Storybook Artifact) bridal quarters on her wedding day. I absolutely LOVE this color!  
My Nana Sharee and I showcasing Mrs. Dresser's beautifully organized closet; featuring labeled drawers for her different types of fancy lady gloves!
My husband, Joe, and I...soul mates and lovebirds. This has always been one of my favorite photos of "us".

Me laying on Mrs. Dresser's beautiful antique canopy iron bed with minty seafoam green walls all around!
Soak up the beauty of this mesmerizing color and check out this refreshingly breathtaking seafoam green inspired Etsy treasury titled "Light and Fresh" curated by Susan Bayer Designs.
Below are two vintage seafoam green embellished plates that I have in my Etsy shop Eco-Friendly Freckles;
