Having company over? In our “Hosting How-tos” series, we’ll teach you how to entertain like a pro. Send a positive message and have a little bit of fun with these Earth Day party ideas.

Environmental awareness is on the rise. All over the world, people are supporting causes that bring attention to the things we can do to help our environment. Earth Day is a great time to start teaching your children how they can take up these responsibilities, or even be used as a time to initiate change in your own habits.

While this day is certainly very important, we also enjoy all the fun prospects that can go with it…one of which is throwing an Earth Day party! (Need more time to plan? Extend the fun and learning, and make this an “Earth Week” celebration, with the party next weekend!)

Green and blue are definitely the go-to colors for your Earth Day party decorations. We’re betting you can find tons of great tablecloths, pillows, linens, and everything else you need for an eco-friendly party. Just be sure to buy stuff you will use again or can donate when you’re done.

When looking for plates, utensils, and cups, make sure to find all recycled/recyclable products or items that you can use again in the future. Mason jars are a popular choice, and for good reason. The reuse of mason jars is an endless list of fun and easy DIY projects. You can use them as centerpieces with bouquets of flowers in them, to keep drinks fresh and ready for use, for preserves, to reuse for indoor plants…the possibilities are almost endless!


Looking for a fun, and scrumptious, centerpiece idea? We’ve got you covered! Our cookie flower pots are perfect for a family-friendly Earth Day party. Our delicious buttercream frosted cookies are delivered freshly made and decorated with spring and floral shapes and colors, all in a reusable tin.

All our cookies are made with the finest and freshest of ingredients, with no added preservatives! Kids will love the bright festive colors and sweet tastes. We also have plenty of flower, lady bug, and butterfly cookies to place at the table as decorative Earth Day treats.

Other snacks to include at your Earth Day party:

  • Mixed veggie tray with ranch dip
  • Mixed fruit tray with yogurt dip
  • “Ants on a Log” (celery, peanut butter, and raisins)
  • Sliced apples with peanut butter, Nutella, or caramel
  • Popcorn
  • Small sandwiches with wheat or multi-grain bread

Of course, no Earth Day Party would be complete without some fun and educational activities. All activities are inexpensive (or free), fun, and easy to do, no matter the size of your party.

  • Earth Day word puzzle: Create your own crossword or word scramble list (you can find free programs online) using Earth Day related words.
  • Recycle relay: Divide into teams (2 or 3 teams depending on party size) and give each team a bin filled with recyclables, such as plastic bottles, milk jugs, cardboard, etc., and three empty bins labeled as “Plastic,” “Paper,” and “Glass.” Tell the teams that the first team to correctly sort all their items in the proper bins wins.
  • Earth Day pledge: Let them decorate plain white T-shirts with fabric markers or eco-friendly fabric paint with their Earth Day resolutions and ways that they can help the environment.

At the end of the day, you can make a good bag using recycled paper lunch bags filled with an individual Cheryl’s cookie, pencils, stickers, and a small potted plant for them to take home.

This is a great party to throw anytime during the nice weather months ahead, and it sends an important message for any time of year.
