The Thursday Night Creatives group have been busy over the past weeks producing the eco theming decorations for the ninety metres of tables and eleven fire pits stretching along High Street and parts of Church, Park and Railway Streets.
Adorning each table will be centrepieces fashioned from branches, hessian, glass chandelier drops and other jewels, and uplit with LED candles.
Hundreds of metres of bunting will hang across the streets, and community made flags will fly.
Boonah’s composting queen, Madam Mulch will traverse the streets and chat to diners about recycling to ensure the compostable table ware goes into the right bins.
Coordinator, Julie Jackson says, “We’re pleased to be involved in this event, and increase the level of sustainability to the evening. Our decorations contain local natural resources as well as recycled items, which is always the approach to our endeavours to minimise consumerism.”
“And we’re very happy to be taking away the organic waste for composting on a nearby property, rather than it ending up in landfill where it would feed bacteria and produce carbon dioxide and methane.”
“We’d like to thank the Scenic Rim Regional Council and the Boonah Art Society Inc for supporting us in this project. “
