I had already started planning a little housewarming party when Glad approached me to participate in their one-bag challenge. I really loved the concept and agreed right away. The idea is to reduce the waste from your party down to one garbage bag or less. They asked me to put together a party kit of everything you would need to throw a party.
For our housewarming party I just wanted a chance for friends to stop by and see our apartment and chat. Since our house is so small I realized it might be tricky if I invited everyone we know over at the same time. So to prevent a crammed apartment I decided to have an open house for people to stop by throughout the day. I’ve thrown parties like that before and I love that no one feels rushed and you actually get a chance to visit with everyone. I also love that there isn’t the same kind of pressure when you entertain for an hour or two. The items I chose for my party are reusable pieces that you can invest in and some compostable and recyclable one-use items. I’m a big believer that a party doesn’t need to be complicated. You usually just need a few unexpected elements that make the party feel special and that your guests will remember. I am so excited to host a party in our small apartment. I’ll be sure to share pictures afterwards.
