Words cannot describe how honored I felt to be asked to participate in Sparkling Events & Designs $100 Designer’s Challenge. The competition was so incredibly intimidating I can hardly believe I was asked to participate. Sweet Ebony (of Sparking Events & Design) invited 12 extremely talented party designers (can you say Hostess With The Mostess, Bird’s Party, Frog Prince Paperie, etc…) to come up with a Tablescape, Activity and Party favor all for $100 following the theme “Go Green.”
Upon hearing the theme, I knew exactly what I was going to do! Over the past year, my husband and I have been working super hard to move to a clean and raw diet & love the idea of encouraging youth to eat more fruits & vegetables! So I came up with this “Eat Your Greens” Salad Bar dinner party (all for under $100 YAY!) to propagate healthy eating!
Here are some of the frugal details!
