Project

Think Green: Seedling Favors

Introduction

Plant an idea in your guests' heads with these seedling favors meant for enjoying long after the party's over. The Magnolia Company offers more than 15 different oak varieties and will send you the one that's suited to the geographic region of your wedding locale (minimum order six trees, seedsoflife.com).

To spruce up the budding trees as favors, simply place them in sleek sake cups. The best part? In the spirit of environmentalism, the tokens can double as centerpieces when they're grouped together, so nothing will go to waste.

    My fiance isn't a landscaper, but I'm doing something similar with petunias instead of trees. It was just my way of sharing my love of gardening with my wedding guests. Instead of sake cups, I'm using terra cotta pots.

    I also have a landscaper as a fiance. He came up with this idea all on his own. I am very proud. We have two varieties of oak trees and we are going to be using them as table decorations as well.

    I think this is a Great Idea! My fiance is a landscaper and I thought this would be a great way to incorporate him into the theme of the wedding.
