DIY Wednesday- Eco Friendly Favors

With the green movement gaining steam, why not incoporate eco friendly giving into your special day. You will be helping make our planet a better place for future generations and thanking your guests all at the same time! We love a double duty favor and these get extra points!

Go green on your wedding day. Give eco-friendly wedding favors to friends and family. Wrap tree seedlings in burlap sacks, or tie wild flower seeds in garden netting. Add a favor tag made from recycled paper and you have a favor that keeps on giving.

Southwest-Inspired Cactus Favors

Make wedding favors inspired by the American Southwest. Plant cacti or succulents in tiny pots, wrap with tissue paper, then secure tissue paper with a ribbon. To counter the rough feel of cacti, include a sweet sentiment such as "besos" (kisses) stamped onto a card stock tag.

Fill flowerpots with bulbs, then slip a package of seeds in each pot. Add a special touch to the wedding favors, create labels with a special sentiment and attach them to the pot or seed packets, add a bow made from string to top it all off.
