If you're an avid reader of my BLOG, then you know that I am a big advocate of green wedding practices - food, flowers and FAVORS.
I found this great idea of creating beautiful garden growing kits when I was doing research on how to incorporate Olive tree seedlings into my clients' wedding favors for their Italian Family inspired wedding this fall. I absolutely love this favor idea as it can be completely customized to match your wedding decor by using fabric that resembles your theme with the inclusion any types of seeds found under the sun. Love, love, LOVE!
Steps in Creative a Garden Wedding Kit
Fill small terracotta pot with biodynamic soil. Biodynamic farming and gardening is both a sustainable, restorative and unified approach to agriculture that relates the ecology of the earth-organism to that of the entire cosmos. To read more about biodynamics, visit www.biodynamics.com.
Cover soil-filled pot with a decorative square-piece of paper. Secure with piece of raffia. You may also use ribbons and twines.
Place covered pot in a cellophane bag along with a decorative packet of seeds. We created our own by sourcing mini lavender envelopes, and incorporating charming hand-drawn leaf illustrations by artist Elizabeth Hubbell.
Write a letter of love and gratitude to your friends and family who will be joining you for your wedding celebration.
Include planting directions on the inside of your card.
Cinch the cellophane bag with piece of raffia, tying the hole-punched card along with it.
