1. An array of plants. It is definitely your personal preference and what is in season. We love the idea of fresh herbs as a wedding favor because they will more than likely be used again by your guests. Below are the plants we used for these particular arrangements.

Herbs: basil sage rosemary lavender and parsley
Maiden hair ferns
Reindeer moss
Sheet moss
Billy Button Flowers

2. Water can to give your new little arrangements a drink
3. Reindeer moss
4. Twine
5. Potting Soil

8. Glass bowels or container for planting (not shown)

Our living escort cards sure make a great wedding favor for either a wedding or a bridal shower. They are a stand piece and really easy to make.

1. You can get the bowls at ikea for fairly cheap.
2. Place a bit of potting soil in the bottom of the bowl.
3. Gently place Reindeer moss inside the soil
4. Then go with your Maiden hair ferns
5. Lastly place in your Billy Button Flower
6. Tear a vintage book piece. Write down your guests name on another piece of paper a bit smaller than the vintage tear out. Punch a hole through both pieces and string a piece of twine through both pieces of paper.
7. gently wrap around arrangement.

1. Place soil in piece that you have chosen to use for your arrangement.

2. Cut the bottom of the soil off and gently place in your bowl. Below are some fun ideas to give you inspiration on how to use different plants for simple wedding arrangements.

    Yay! This is pretty much EXACTLY what I was planning on doing! Who needs expensive cut flowers that look fussy and may not even last the evening? Not me. Now I just need to find pretty purple flowers that bloom in October. Suggestions welcome.

    For an outline in going green, the word local should always be prominent. Use the flowers most convenient and abundant in the region to avoid import costs that’s clearly ruining eco efforts.

  11. -100. Miss McBooty says:

    I absolutely LOVE this idea! I’m not getting married anytime soon, but this is something I will do when the day comes.

    I just wanted to let you know that you have a typo… it says “bowels” instead of “bowls” on #8 for supplies. Just FYI. Love this site!
