Welcome to Day 2 of the Bubbles of Love Event! If you missed yesterday be sure to scroll down to see the other great giveaways already up for this wonderful Valentine's Day event!
I wanted to start off Day 2 with a store that carries some wonderful products that would make a fabulous Valentine's Day gift to the person in your life who loves to host a party! Green Party Goods is an online store that offers a wide variety of- what else- green party supplies!
From Goodie Bags to Party Plates to Green Toys this is your one-stop shop for throwing a great green party whether it be a child's birthday party, an adult's birthday party, an engagement party, a house warming party, or (what I'll be hosting soon) a "My Divorce Is Official!" party.
For Christmas my wonderful boyfriend bought me a cupcake maker. I have become quite the little domestic diva in the past few months and making cupcakes was something I'd been wanting to do. So when I first went to Green Party Goods my eyes immediately went to the "Cupcake Craze" section. Like a little kid in a candy store my eyes dashed around to take in all of the awesome cupcake related products available. It was a lot to take in! Cupcake accessories, edible art, cupcake liners, cupcake stands, cupcake wrapper- it's all here! There are so many varieties, styles, colors, and products that I spent 20 minutes in the Cupcake Craze section and still hadn't seen everything! So when it came time to review a product I went for the thing that really stuck out to me as being fun and "me".
The Mini Polka Dot Eco-Cupcake Stand is so me. It's bright, it's fun, it's colorful, it's a little crazy, and it sticks out in a crowd. Or maybe I blend in to a crowd? I'm really not sure but that doesn't matter, this fun cupcake stand is sure to stand out at your next party! Dress up the rough edges with some ribbon, get some bright cupcake liners to compliment that stand, and use this beauty for your next party. I'm such a nerd that first chance I got I made several dozen cupcakes and brought them and the stand over to my friend's house for Football Sunday. It was a huge hit (the stand and the cupcakes!). The cupcake stand itself is made out of sturdy cardboard so it's biodegradable but strong enough to last me through many, many parties! It folds down flat which is great because I have a tiny kitchen and need to store it when not in use. Assembly is easy and fast and decorating it, for me, was half the fun! I can change it up each time I use it and fine new ways to spice it up so it's different each time.
Colorful polka dots not your style? How about Zebra stripes? I must say it was a hard choice between the Mini Polka Dot and the Mini Zebra Eco-Cupcake Stand. This stand is also fun and crazy but in a more adult way. Definitely a fun addition to a sexy Valentine's Party should you be hosting one. STILL not your style? Looking for something a little more subdue and simple? Well... that's boring. :) But also available from Green Party Goods! Both the Eco Cupcake Stand- Square and the Eco Cupcake Stand- Round are available.
I could seriously go on and on and on about how awesome this website is and all of the products they offer, but if I make it too long I know you won't read this so I'll just let you head on over to the website and explore on your own to see what I'm talking about. And like I said, party supplies make a great gift for the domestic diva in your life who loves to throw a good party!
What I Love: EVERYTHING! At Green Party Goods the variety of products is fantastic. I love that the site really strives to help you make your next party as eco-friendly as possible while not being too expensive. Definitely a huge plus in my book and a website I plan to visit next time I plan a party!
What I Don't Love: Really I can't think of anything! It's an online store and not a brick and mortar store but I think in this economy an eco-friendly party brick and mortar store wouldn't survive very long. So this is a great alternative!
Want a cupcake stand of your very own or have a loved one who would love it as a Valentine's Day gift? The Mini Polka Dot Eco-Cupcake Stand and the Mini Zebra Eco-Cupcake Stand sell for just $31, the Eco Cupcake Stand- Round is $38.95 and the Eco Cupcake Stand- Square is $34.95! Remember they are reusable!!
