I’m Going Bare For the Holidays!

 

I’m having yet another party!

Somebody stop me, because I am constantly entertaining.

(You see, it’s just that my house is in a convenient location, and I have a flexible schedule since I work from home and….I’m a sucker.)

I don’t really mind though. I always have the bare essentials of plates, cups, napkins and utensils handy, even in holiday colors. (I shop the day after Christmas and stock up.)

And when it comes to the food, my friends are really good about asking what they can bring. See why they’re my friends?

But for this weekend’s party, I’m not gonna use my Christmas plates and cups. I’m using the Bare by Solo line of recyclable and compostable tableware.

Slap a sammich on this baby!

Or you could daintily place a piece of peppermint bark on there seeing as how that’s all I have ready so far. (Calm down…I have three days left to fix a thing or two.)

But my point is that I’m being eco-forward this holiday, and I might just keep the habit because the compostable plates (made from annually renewable sugarcane, btw) are dang sturdy and strong.

And not bad lookin’ either.

And the recyclable cups? Well, you just can’t go wrong with clear and durable.

Let’s party!
