Planting Something New
Flowers are one of the first things you associate with springtime. People are busy planting their gardens. So why not give them a head start with your wedding favors? There are plenty of ideas you can put together before the big day.
These tulip bulbs go right in a dirt-filled paper bag, and will go over great with guests who have that DIY spirit, too. They will be able to replant these beauties in their own landscaping and enjoy them every spring.
These DIY herb garden planters are just perfect, especially with the canvas wrap.
Plant some colorful flowers that your guests will be able to transfer to their own yards or planters to enjoy the rest of the spring and summer months. There are so many container options for you to choose from depending on your wedding theme and budget. Anything will work from painted terra cotta pots, Mason jars, small glass vases, to recycled tins and even hollowed out eggshells.
For the real DIY guests, try this wheelbarrow idea where they pick up a packet of seeds from a wheelbarrow like the Worx Aerocart All-Purpose Wheelbarrow from Buydig.com and grow their own plants, herbs or flowers from scratch.
These won’t last as long as a potted plant favor. Your guests won’t be able to resist digging into them though.
This lavender honey simple syrup recipe is the perfect idea for your favors. Not only does the color from the dried lavender infuse into the syrup beautifully, but it can also be stirred into unflavored carbonated water for a homemade lavender soda that smells and tastes incredible.
Send your guests home with his or her own extra taste of the wedding cake in a jar, or another spring flavor of your choosing by layering small portions of cake and icing you’ve made with your KitchenAid Professional 6 Quart Stand Lift Mixer from Bydig.com in a sealable jar. Top it with flowers or any other items to match your décor.
Fill small sealable tins with some seasonal herbal tea. Handwrite or print a cute label to stick to the top. This will give your guests a token of your appreciation. They will be able to enjoy long after the big day is over.
Pay homage to spring with edible flower treats. Pansies, violets, and lavender are all edible flowers. They can be used to make lollipops, candies, and chocolates that your guests will love.
Macarons are a delicious favor any time of the year. Choosing floral flavors like rose and lavender, and pastel shades make them particularly perfect for spring.
Use any of these unique DIY spring wedding favor ideas to create a special thank you. Show your guests how much you appreciate them!
