Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall: A Sustainable Celebration

Fall has officially started, but we are still hanging onto summer here in Florida and it definitely feels that way. With the highs still in the 90’s and the afternoon thunderstorms, every afternoon, it is hard to imagine that others around the country are already feeling the effects of fall.

But we know that we can’t hold on to summer forever, so we decided to have a little celebration in honor of the season this past weekend, before we have to say hello to the fall.

And what a better way to celebrate the seasons than with using beautiful, sustainable party tableware!

DSC01119Have you heard of Susty Party?

They are a new company, featured on the TV show Shark Tank (really cool show on ABC if you haven’t heard of it), and they design earth-friendly and artfully designed party products.


Can you believe that these adorably stylish products are made with all of this in mind:

When I was given the opportunity to try out these products and host a party using them, I was super excited!  I really love the concept of earth-friendly products and I was thrilled to find out that they were also made in such cute patterns and designs. Ones that I would have picked for a party even without knowing of the great perk of being environmentally friendly! I even loved the packaging that they came in.


One thing I really liked about their website is that they also offer these great party packs, including all you need to host a party, that you can order in one click of the mouse. Just choose a color and you are all set!


I really wanted a bright and fun theme to our party and yellow just screamed summer to me. Bright colored flowers added some more color to the table and matched the colors of the labels I made especially for this event that had cute little messaging about summer.


One of my favorite ideas was to create little packets filled with all the silverware as a grab and go at the buffet table. I love the crafty wood look of the Susty Party silverware.


And of course, we encouraged everyone to enjoy the food since fall is quickly approaching!



Since I am all about budgeting, the flower arrangements were a very budget friendly addition.


Just some colorful tissue paper wrapped around some old jars I’ve saved and tied together with twine. I added some more messaging with these printed labels.







The quality of Susty Party’s products was surprisingly nice for being made of completely compostable and renewable products.


And it made me feel good about hosting a party!


We had the perfect feast on a Sunday afternoon while watching football, of wings and celery, coleslaw and fries. Not the healthiest, but it just felt so right! 😉 (At least I ran 4 miles that day!) DSC01154

It was a colorful meal and a colorful party to celebrate the end of summer.

Oh and did I mention delicious?


I was so thrilled with how this party turned out and how easy it was to put together, that I wanted to offer these awesome printables to you as well!

Of course after I printed them, I had the urge to make them better and update them to include even more label designs and add a little more detail.

All I did was print these out on full sheet labels, and cut them out on my own. I like to use the OL179 labels, cause they have 2 vertical back slits and the backings are so easy to remove from the printed designs after you cut them out.

In this version, I also included a design fit perfectly for water bottles as well, that I wish I thought of before.

As I was updating my summer labels, I realized that most other people around the country are already experiencing fall, and may want to have a fall party! So, I came up with the following set of labels, which would also go great with the Susty Party yellow party pack.

Hope you like these labels and enjoyed learning out about an awesome new company trying something new! Enjoy the seasons, which ever one you want to embrace, and have fun!
