As you may have heard, Ecodessa has recently opened a popup at Natur-Tyme in Dewitt! Caeresa has curated a beautiful collection of eco-conscious home items there. The popup will be open through the month of December so it's a great place to stop by for some holiday gifts! In celebration of Ecodessa Home, we thought we'd talk about a different home theme each week and how you can incorporate more sustainable practices into your everyday life! Each of the items featured in this posts can be found in the Eco Home Collection on Ecodessa.com!
Christmas is around the corner and if you have been tasked with the honor of hosting or attending a dinner party, you may be in need of some decor, recipe, or outfit inspiration. Keep reading for some ideas and products to help you throw and attend holiday gatherings consciously!
The trick to creating a beautiful tablescape is to layer different textures. Not only are reusable placemats, cloth napkins, glasses, and silverware the more sustainable option, but they can elevate the look and feel of your table setting. You can use dried fruit, pinecones, and foliage from your own home to create an enchanting natural centerpiece that runs the length of the table. Add some candles for an especially cozy vibe!
Arguably the most important part of any party, the menu should cater to your guests' tastes and dietary restrictions as well as make them want to go in for seconds! Whether you are a guest bringing a dish or the host responsible for all or most of the menu, vegan, grain-free, and whole food recipes are a great go-to because they avoid most dietary restrictions and there are no shortage of delicious whole-food recipes out there! We love this recipe book from Sweet Laurel because it includes a variety of comforting and fun whole food, grain-free dessert recipes.
If you're anything like me, you may get pre-party stress trying to figure out a vague or nonexistent dress code. The following outfits fall somewhere between casual and dressy for those gatherings you've been invited to without any indication of the vibe. Click the pictures to shop the pieces!
This sweater set from Known Supply is the perfect compromise between comfort and style. You'll look perfectly put together while wearing a blanket-like soft and stretchy knit. pair with some tights and boots for extra warmth!
I love this look because of its mixed textures. The shimmer in the gold stripes of the sweater and the subtle shine of the vegan leather pants and bag contrast so beautifully with the knit in the sweater. These pants have so much stretch to them so yes, they are appropriate for all that eating you're planning on doing.
You can never go wrong with a fun printed dress and a cardigan. I especially love the elastic mock neck on this dress. The oatmeal cardigan serves a dual purpose, as it give the dress a more casual look and will keep you comfortably warm all night long!
All of these items can be found online at Ecodessa.com or at our Home Popup in Natur-Tyme, so head over and pick yourself up some beautiful hosting goodies or find something beautiful to gift to your party hosts!
