I've written several blog posts in the past about how to stay green and stay on budget. One tip I've seen time and time again is to reuse event decor, props and whatnot, whether you've kept them yourself or have asked the event venue to to recycle them from an earlier event that day.
Today, I read about a great website that offers another option. Event Leftovers is an online marketplace where meeting and event planners can buy and sell new and gently-used supplies. It's great for planners of all markets and levels, from once-a-year company holiday parties to monthly client events.
Event Leftovers a win-win for both buyers and sellers: buyers get bargains on event goods, while sellers (who can list items for free) get some additional revenue. Plus, both sides are being eco-friendly!
Right now, items for sale range from the wacky and fun (like these tropical birds—perfect for a luau theme!) to standard items that could work at any event, like charger plates and clear votive holders.
Registration and listings are free, so the next time you need to buy or sell some event party rentals, check it out!
