A month or so ago I found an article in a Wedding Magazine (and if I could remember said Wedding Magazine and article I would tell you, but I can’t remember for the life of me) where the Bride and Groom at herb themed tables and favors. I fell in love with this idea because it was finally at favor FH and I could do that fit with our venue and our life. We love to cook and we want to start an herb garden after we’re married.
Honestly, at first I wanted to to flower seed packets and flower themed tables, but I was told, “Dude’s don’t want flower packets”, fine no flowers, boooo. I also like this idea because if a guest doensn’t like their favor and A) doesn’t take it home, we’ll gladly keep it; or B) throws it away, its kinda green and wont fill up some landfill.
Fast forward a month (or two) and my mom purchases the new Real Simple Weddings 2009 and finds the same idea.
MOB doesn’t remember me telling her about this already and thinks this is a FANTASTIC idea! Ummm, yeah, I know! So we brainstrom idea (no venn diagrams, sorry) and decide we are going to have herb themed tables and give corresponding herb seed packets for those guest. We were going to grow the herbs and give them each a little potted herb, but decided against it when we realize alot of guest would have to transport their herb back after staying the night in a hotel and didn’t want to make their treck back home more difficult worrying about spilling dirt.
I was still a little miffed about just giving people seeds (and maybe a pot) for our guest to plant themselves when I came across this post and realized I could give our guest one of those little pods, too. Shelly even already figured out the math for me of about .25 cents a favor.
Now I just need to figure out a cute way to package them with a little explanation card… which shouldn’t be difficult. YAY!
