An eco-friendly birthday party with Shrek

Shrek. Young children love him and adults enjoy watching his movies (as long as they don't have to repeatedly watch them over... and over... and over again). This big, green ogre has his face plastered all over cereal and snack boxes, making Shrek a perfect theme for an eco-friendly birthday party.


Supplies used:

Paper scraps
Blank cards, cut in half
Stickers (use your stash)
Coccoina Paste (eco-friendly glue)
Cereal box
Toy packaging


The Shrek characters were cut out of the cereal box and the toy packaging was trimmed to fit each character.


All the elements were then adhered to the blank cards and the invitations were finished.

Here's another look:


An invitation was then made into an 8x8 scrapbook layout.


Shrek Party Food:

Donkey Dogs (hotdogs)
Fiona Salad
Far Far Away Punch
Ants on a log (celery with peanut butter and raisins)
Ogremole and tortilla chips (guacamole)
Puss in Boots Wraps (lunchmeat, cheese, spinach tortillas)
Villager Pickles (pickles wrapped with ham)
Magical Apples and Pumpkin Carriage Dip
Ogre Baby Pasta (pasta salad)
Shrek Cakes:

Shrek cupcake decorations were made by cutting out Shrek's head from playing cards and using Glue Dots to adhere them to Dum Dum Pops.
