To drink, serve up "Grass in a Glass." Grown-ups can enjoy a refreshing cucumber-mint gin and tonic version while the underage set sip on kale-pineapple smoothies.

Channel the aforementioned mountaintop with alpine-inspired arrangements -- and maybe a mural. They'll invigorate your space even after the party is over.

For down-to-business Capricorns, the ultimate type-A party craft is a chalkboard mug that lets you write out your to-do list while you sip.

If you've planned far enough in advance, you can handmake these goat's milk soaps as party favors! They're unscented and chemical-free, making them perfect for even your most sensitive-skinned guests.
