Give the gift of plant life people!
So then, I was having a think about favours and how it would be a great idea to give the gift of a lovely flower of some sort…. and I came up with the idea of giving a bulb or seeds depending on the time of year you are getting married. For instance, this time of year would be great to give Daffodills, Tulips, Crocus, Hyacinths and if your having a Spring/Summer wedding why not give Strawberry Seeds or my (and Jenny’s) absolute FAVOURITE… Sunflower seeds??
For this example I have used Tulips but you can get some great deals on other bulbs this time of year from your local garden store.
You will need:
- A small or medium sized bucket ( I used Medium) 85p or a small plan pot 59p both from HobbyCraft
- Some bulbs – mine were £3.99 from Homebase for 10 bulbs
- Card / luggage tags – available from craft stores
- Some fabric and/or paper napkins
- Some ribbon / String
- Some transfer letters – available from craft stores
Make a label. I used simple brown card and cut out a heart shape (we have a downloadble template available at the end of the post if you like this idea) I then used letter transfers to write my words, you could use these as name places instead if you prefer to – use a hole punch for the ribbon to loop through.
Wrap a bulb or two depending on the size of your bucket in either some fabric or a napkin, the GB ones here are from tesco and they were really cheap for lots of them!… View the full post.
