News about our community as it relates to the environment

Décor Lending Library


The average American wedding costs over $30,000. Why spend money on tableware and tea candles for one night when you can borrow décor for free?!

The recently opened Décor Lending Library is a resource for people to donate and borrow event décor for free! "How could giving away something for FREE possibly support itself?!?! How can we afford to give away something for free.... We think that the better question is how can we NOT afford to?!" their website states.

After living for six months in a small town in Mexico, Christina and her son Loki were inspired by the hospitality and sharing mindset of the people. When they returned to the United States, they missed that feeling of community and were appalled by the wasteful habits of our society.

There are similar projects such as the Little Free Libraries or the Tool Lending Libraries in Portland, but the Décor Lending Library is one of a kind.The Décor Lending Library is for more than just weddings. Find supplies for graduation parties, family reunions, birthday parties, any type of community event! This project is about more than reducing waste, it's about creating community. In addition to providing event décor, they can also refer you to their local partners: professional florists, event designers, rental services, and more.

Even if you're not planning an event, join one of their workshops making upcycled projects and enjoying community throughout the week: Mama and Me Monday, Treat Yourself Tuesday, Free Friday Workshops, Snag a Friend Saturdays. From napkin folding to DIY party signs, there's something to interest everyone!

If you love this idea and want to support them, you can volunteer or give a donation at their website Stop by and visit them by Vancouver Mall at 5123 Ne 94th Ave!
