I look back on my decade long career as an event designer and sometimes cringe. I flew in flowers from exotic places, ordered props and furniture from across the country, and had invitations in custom boxes hand delivered. The events were lovely, but now when considering the impact on the environment, they fade a bit. It was, however, a different time, and being eco-friendly was not something considered when designing milestone events for clients. Today, I would have a very different company and insist all my vendors share a similar commitment.
