Green Party Drinks
Honestly, green party drinks are the easiest of them all. For kids you can make a green smoothie or a green cordial or soda. Add some lime juice cordial to any drink to make it green, for example you could add it to a glass of Sprite. Or for a more healthier approach add lots of fresh mint and fresh lime pieces into your glass and you can definitely consider that green.
For adults: Midori is of course green but I think the most appetizing green drink is adding your greens to a delicious concoction like below. You could also make a green punch, or a green lantern cocktail or green apple martinis or appletinis. Or why not serve green tea?
Green Party Favors
If you are thinking of giving out green party favors at the end of the party there are some fun options that you could consider. Grab some green party bags and add whatever goodies you like to them. The contents of the party bag do not have to be green-themed but if you did want some ideas there are heaps of cool trinkets here such as green bouncy balls, oversized sunglasses, slap bracelets and more.
Or for older kids and adults you could give away a little plant such as a succulent or a tiny cactus something similar.

St Patrick’s Day Party
A St Patrick’s day party is mostly associated with the color green. The green shamrocks dominate the decorations but anything green goes on this day.
Go Green Eco-friendly Party
A go green eco-friendly party could be a fun party idea and incorporating the importance of being environmentally-friendly in our every day lives. Firstly, you could shop for any party items with recylable bags not plastic bags. During the party don’t use disposable items such as plastic plates and bottles if you can help it – and if you need to make sure they can be recyled.
A better greener option for this party would be to serve food and drinks with proper tableware. Consider borrowing from friends and family if you don’t have enough. You could decorate with gorgeous indoor plants and flowers rather than paper or plastic decorations.
If you do use paper decorations make sure you recycle them after the party.
Fill pitchers with water rather than offering bottled water. Only serve as much food as you need to reduce wasteage. Consider giving small plants as party favors or fabric shopping bags to your guests to use and enjoy. At the end of the party make sure that you recycle any cans, plastic bottles or paper that is no longer needed.
Kids Jungle Party
A jungle party theme is a fun party theme for kids that can incorporate many tones of green into the decorations and theming. Look at this awesome green jungle party table below.
A green dinosaur party needs no formal introduction and is also a fun way to incorporate lots of green into a party theme for kids. Make it extra roarsome with lots of oversized green leafs and and plants like on this party table below.
