Elegantly Green Events

Elegantly Green Events Founded by Darcy DeAngelo-Woolsey, Elegantly Green Events' mission is to be the best resource for elegant, environmentally sustainable, and socially conscious event planning in New York and Connecticut.

Currently, Elegantly Green Events acts exclusively as a resource guide for those concerned with social and environmental impacts but with high expectations of presentation and professionalism. It is desired that Elegantly Green Events will move from a resource guide to a professional event planning service to take the stress off the client within the coming years.

My mother was one of the people prominent in influencing my environmental and ethical morals. Happy mother's day to all those "hippy" moms out there.

First yummy place I ate at in Texas.
Spiral Diner: Vegan, organic, and oh so yummy. One in Fort Worth and the other in Dallas. We only visited the Forth Worth one, and we went twice (tried a third time but they were closed on Monday).
What is notable, great nachos - love the queso.
Grilled cheese.
Desserts were to die for: Chocolate Mountain Mudslide and the Turtle Brownie Sunday.

Looking for hotels, and perhaps ones with event space to boot, in the New York City area or beyond? IHG Group has developed their own Greening certification of hotels in their brands such as Holiday Inn and Crown Plaza (individual hotel owners are in charge of implementing such methods). Find out information about green engage and the hotels that are aligned with the certification here: http://www.ihgplc.com/index.asp?pageid=742

Elegantly Green Favors Survey

Every party I have been to, be it a child's birthday party or the corporate holiday party, it is true that most guests love, if not expects, a party favor. The struggle has always been choosing a favor that makes the masses, and also a sustainable-conscious host, happy. EGE has listed some fun favors on the site, however, if those don't tickle your fancy, maybe some of these favor tips will. What Elegantly Green Favor would you like as a guest or as a host?

Candles are popular this time of year but, if you are like me, you burn them longer than intended. Control the length of use and do it in rustic 1600's style with Candle by the Hour.
These candles are made of beeswax. Please note that they are made in China (I can't speak to what kind of conditions the shop is) and what makes them interesting to EGE is the control of use, the reusable stands, and the innovative look. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Dgarden&field-keywords=candle+by+the+hour

Red Lentil Vegetarian & Vegan Restaurant - Watertown | The Red Lentil Vegetarian & Vegan Restaurant

What is it that makes all the really good veg places disappear? Kate's Diner in the east village and now the red lentil located in New Haven, CT. Two places I loved. Since I never got around to talking about them, the best I can do is promote the Red Lentil in Watertown, MA.
Great food, nachos, burritos, pistachio and herb encrusted tofu with corn cake, and OMG the sheperd's pie! And that is not all.
This place is great even for your non-veg friends.
If you are in the suburban Boston area you CAN NOT pass up trying Red Lentil. Don't let another great restaurant bite the dust.

Vegan Latina — Vegan, Veganomicon, Vegan Cupcakes — By Terry Hope Romero, co-author of the Veganomic

This weekend I had a huge challenge, entertain and feed 20 children and their friends in my modest home. Being that it was a child's birthday party, the small guests did not care much about what was available to them or how the party was made, so I eased up on some of my convictions. However, I am happy to say that I was able to turn entertainment into favors, utilize some decorations I already had in the house, and about 75% of the food and drinks would fall under "green" or "sustainable". Quick breakdown:
Favors - kids dressed up as fashonistas or rock stars and were able to bring their bling home.
Decorations - made a strobe like effect with Christmas lights by taping them in a swirl on the ceiling.
Food - Except for the pizza for the kids all food was purchased from Wholefoods.
Kids juice was the organic Honest Kids juice
Adults iced tea was Third Street Organic Iced Tea
Adult meals were baked ziti (75% organic ingredients and vegetarian) and broccoli risotto (100% organic and vegan)
Dessert - Vegan chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero.

Pure Food and Wine - One Lucky Duck

Maybe you are looking to be a little adventurous and try something new, something... raw? You'd be surprised what some of these chefs can do, so today is "promote raw eating" day here at Elegantly Green Events (perhaps the lack of carotene is getting to me). Check out Pure Food and Wine in Gramercy if you are looking for a romantic or elegant night out (or for hosting an event), or head down to SoHo for something a little more casual at Rawlicious.
