Eco pine cones and pine cone holders

By Neoma Demourtzidis
Ever wondered how to give a serving of popcorn a gorgeous makeover for a party? At Eco Party Box we can help.

As I was doing some photography this week we added some popcorn to our eco friendly pine cones and the 20-hole holders. The result was a beautiful, wholesome and rustic feel.

It made me think of all events it could be used for: movie nights, tea parties or weddings.

And the pine cones don't have to hold just popcorn either. They also suit confetti or rose petals, take-home party gifts, lollies or small entrees like seafood or crepes, just as one of our local customers does for his market crepe stall.

Best of all the pine cones are compostable - which means you can use them for your celebration and then use them to grow a garden.

The pine cone holder could also come in handy for ice-cream cones. Instead of having such mess, just stick the ice-cream cone in the stand and serve in a simple and neat manner.
