Green Party Information

Throwing a Green Birthday is easy, smart and fun!  Here are just a few ways that CNC keeps our parties eco-friendly!

  • Eat Green – Biodegradable & Compostable! CNC uses unbleached bagasse paper goods. Bagasse is biodegradable and compostable disposable tableware that is made from sugarcane fiber. Read more about the brand CNC uses at our parties here. Our cups are even made out of corn! Read about compostable plastic cups here.
  • Ice your Cake with Green! It’s definitely important to support local community business. There are lots of unique bakeries and cake-makers out there, and a lot of bakers who use all natural, organic products. Look for one within your community and ask what type of ingredients they use and where their ingredients come from.  Ali’s Cookies in Marietta, Georgia bakes the delicious cookie cakes for CNC birthday parties. They are made completely from scratch and fresh to order. They also are certified Kosher! Learn more about Ali’s Cookies here!
  • Invite Green! A perfect way to reduce the amount of paper products involved with a birthday party, it to not send any! Well, not in the mail or on ordinary paper invitations anyways. There are some fantastic websites that allow you to create your own invitation and email it to all your friends. Many of these websites even keep track of who has RSVP’d and who hasn’t for you. They are simple and fun to use. Check out these ones for starters: &
  • Re-usable canvas bag for party favors for all the kids who come to celebrate
  • After your party, our staff uses an all natural, organic cleaner to wipe up all the icing & mess!
