Green Celebrations

I work at a company that LOVES to celebrate birthdays. Desks get strewn with streamers and balloons. Everyone brings in treats and co-workers stop by all day to wish you a great day and to eat of course!

This week, when there seemed to be a gazillion birthdays in a row, I said to myself..."Not another one!" Then one of my co-workers came over and said, "Let's make our own decorations instead of always buying them and trashing them." And my love of birthdays came back, just like that!

In the works are fabric garlands and banners, recycled paper garlands and a papier mâché cake. I can't wait to see what everyone makes! For now, I am collecting ideas for inspiration.
