Join us for an Eco-Friendly Asian Dinner Party with a Leafware Dinner Set.
What fun my friends and my husband and I had this weekend with our eco-friendly Asian Dinner Party! I tried out some of my newest Asian recipes with our guests and we had a blast trying the new dishes, drinking wine and champagne, and generally enjoying each other’s company.
And best of all, I had the opportunity to dress my table with a wonderful Eco-Friendly tablescape set, compliments of my friends at Smarty Had a A Party! This company was gracious enough to supply us with a wonderful leafware dinnerware set. The dinnerware is made from fallen palm leaves and is environmentally friendly. It made the perfect setting for all of my new Asian recipes.
The menu for our party consisted of the following recipes: (You can click on any of the photos or the links below them to go directly to the recipes for my party.)
- Vegetable Spring Rolls with Dipping sauce
- Toasted Sesame Teriyaki Chicken
- Pork and Vegetable Egg Rolls (I didn’t make these, I cheated and used Minh Egg Rolls. They were delicious and easy to prepare too!) – Affiliate link.
- Pork and vegetable Fried Rice
- Paleo Mongolian Beef
- Saucy Asian Meatballs (the bamboo knot picks come with the party pack and are perfect to serve these meatballs, don’t you think?)
- Fruit bowls with sorbet and some dark chocolate to finish
The dinnerware set is just wonderful. It features a huge stack of the fallen leaf bamboo style plates, that I used for both the guests and for serving our dishes. Also included are some good quality napkins, small bowls that I used for my Hoisin sauce for the meatballs as well as the sorbet for our fruit plates. And the green table runner added a wonderful touch to the table as well. The runner is very long. I had my table set with two leaves and 8 place settings and it ran the whole lengthy of the table!
Here is the table before I added the dishes.
And each guest had a great place setting. Even though the bamboo and eco-friendly disposable plates are for one use, they still are well constructed to hold up under the weight of the food. The only thing I had to purchase were the chopsticks! (the glasses and silverware are mine, of course.) The plates are also large enough to use for serving dishes too, and that is what I used the extras for.
The table is set and my guests are ready:
And after the party, looks like the wine went to one head! (and to the camera lady too – me! – the photo is a bit blurrier than I normally take!)
I received the same party pack for free, for hosting this contest and for a review of the products, but I only recommend products that I believe will be of value to my readers. I thoroughly enjoyed using these tablescape supplies and my guests loved them!
