I believe that no party is complete without party favors.  But sometimes when you’re busy planning your menu and table top decorations, you barely have any time (or energy) to even think about making take-away treats for your guests! The solution? Herb Plants! They not only make great favors, but they also function as beautiful centerpieces and as a tasty garnish for your attendees! See the instructions below for how we took seedlings from our friends at Bonnie Plants and turned them into fragrant parting gifts.

 

1. Take seedlings of your liking (we like the ones from Bonnie Plants, because they come in biodegradable pots), and remove them from their containers (or just the plastic seal if you're using one in a biodegradable pot). Make sure you leave the plastic markers in the plants, so that your guests know what they're taking home and eating!

 

 

2. Take colorful pots (we like to use different sizes) and plant your seedlings inside of them.

 

 

3. Take large wooden garden stakes, and mark each one with the name of your guests. We used sticker letters, however feel free to get creative and use stencils or stamps.

 

 

4. Place the garden stakes in each of your potted plants. And there you have it - a simple, fragrant, and might I mention delicious party favor centerpieces!
