Green Birthdays

Celebrating birthdays of your near ones and dear ones in an eco-friendly way could be most coolest thing to do. Imagine the venue of birthday party is a forest where your guest enjoy nature on a nature trail, the friends of birthday boy/child are busy on a treasure hunt and at the same time they learnt to study the tell-tale signs of wild by observing the animal tracks on the forest floor. While you may not be a ble to cut a cake in the wild but you can certainly give a return gift to all guests which could be a butterfly attracting plant sapling and the icing on the cake would be a group selfie in the wild.
